Where does Brett Kavanaugh stand on key issues?

Where does Brett Kavanaugh stand on key issues?

The documents that didn't concern judicial candidates, Burck wrote, contained "advice submitted directly" from Kavanaugh to Bush, conversations between White House staffers that disclosed conversations with the president and "substantive" discussions about executive orders or legislation.

Last month, Kavanaugh told Collins he believed the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision was "settled law" - a comment she was pleased with, but that many Democrats and abortion rights organizations called vague and unimpressive.

Klobuchar argued that the documents stemming from Kavanaugh's time in the Bush White House could "strongly bolster the arguments that I could make" on whether the appellate court judge is qualified to serve on the Supreme Court.

"The bottom line here is there's a process to overturn a precedent, and I think he understands that process, he will apply it", he continued.

The White House said Friday that it would not be releasing 100,000 Kavanaugh's records from the Bush White House on the basis of presidential privilege.

"What's the point of even Democrats showing up", Fallon reportedly said.

"Judge Kavanaugh, an associate and senior associate White House counsel, dealt with some of the most sensitive communications of any White House official", Burck wrote.

Burck said he has given the committee "every reviewable" document that he received except those that fell into exemptions that included "presidential records protected by constitutional privilege". Durbin and other Democrats used the Twitter hashtag #WhatAreTheyHiding to register their ire in a preview of what's to come at Kavanaugh's hearing.

Democratic Senators Joe Donnelly in Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota and Joe Manchin in West Virginia all face tough re-election battles in November in states Trump won easily in the 2016 election and could face pressure from voters to approve the Trump court selection. Republicans have not requested documents from Kavanaugh's time as staff secretary and have only requested papers from when Kavanaugh worked as a White House lawyer.
