Senate Dems Vow to Sue if Kavanaugh Kenneth Starr Docs Not Coughed Up

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has now vowed his Capitol Hill claque will sue to get requested documents related to the Ken Starr investigation. These documents – numbering in the millions – are part of the left’s effort to find some sort of silver bullet to block Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings, which begin on September 4. The agency affected by the FOIA request has until September 6 to fork over the leviathan of paperwork, with Schumer pointedly noting “we stand ready to sue the National Archives” for failing to deliver. This is the left’s Hail Mary attempt.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) vowed today that Democrats are poised to sue to get documents on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh requested through the Freedom of Information Act last week.

Senate Democrats contend that Republicans are trying to conceal documents about Kavanaugh’s career, which stretches back into the Ken Starr investigation, his three years as staff secretary in the George W. Bush White House, and his appointment to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Dems argue that their request is identical to the dig Republicans did through the records of nominee Elena Kagan, who was a domestic policy advisor in the Clinton White House and solicitor general under Obama.

Republicans say that the request for millions of documents is a stall tactic intended to derail Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) goal of having a new justice seated by Oct. 1.
