Kavanaugh's role in President Bush's controversial torture policy and treatment of War on Terror detainees will likely be a heated issue in his confirmation process.
The Senate Judiciary Committee's confirmation hearing for Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh is scheduled to start on September 4. The hearings are expected to last three or four days.
He further touted the nominee as a mainstream judge with a record of "applying the law as it is written".

Schumer said in a statement. Of that small portion, only 5,800 non-substantive documents were released publicly.
The government watchdogs are deeply disturbed by recent reports that Senate Republicans have negotiated a deal with former President George W. Bush for only partial release of Kavanaugh documents in Bush's presidential library, over the objections of Senate Democrats. "They just don't like the fact that his record shows he is fair, independent and adheres to the Constitution, so they are now resorting to obstruction and gridlock to extend their fishing expedition", Martin said.
