Extract from Mark Bauer and Rhys Dipshan’s article “A Lesson in Document Review, Spurred by Sen. Harris’ Comments at Kavanaugh’s Confirmation Hearing”
At the start of Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Kamala Harris suggested that the hearing should be delayed because of the inability to review some 42,000 pages of documents released the night before. “We can not possibly move forward with this hearing,” Harris, D-California, said.
The documents, released by a lawyer overseeing the Bush White House records, were related to Kavanaugh’s time in the George W. Bush administration. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, tweeted at 7:13 p.m. the night of the document dump that “Not a single senator will be able to review these records before tomorrow.”
