The schedule is typical for a high court nominee, but because Kavanaugh, 53, spent five years working in the White House during George W. Bush's administration, Republicans and Democrats continue to feud over what could be more than 1 million pages of documents. Further, the undisclosed record of his time in the White House might further reveal his judicial philosophy but will go unexamined because Republicans, with Collins' support, are not requesting the documents.

"Democrats have already announced that they oppose him, so this claim that they need more time or more documents is nothing more than a show, a fishing expedition designed to obstruct and create gridlock", she said.

The Judiciary Committee will hold up to four days of review, with Kavanaugh to begin facing questions on Day 2, September 5, said committee chairman Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee.

Breitbart News' Ken Klukowski has pointed out that Kavanaugh's opinions have been in the public domain for years and Kavanaugh "returned the most comprehensive, bipartisan Senate questionnaire in the history of the Judiciary Committee". Kavanaugh himself described his time as Staff Secretary as "among the most instructive" experiences to his work as a federal court judge. Democrats have complained Republicans are rushing the process for the lifetime appointment without proper vetting of Kavanaugh's record.

Grassley praised Kavanaugh as a highly respected and qualified nominee.

Grassley said the committee has received more than 184,000 pages of records from Kavanaugh's work as a White House lawyer and for his work for Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr.
