Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, last month. Kavanaugh will face questioning starting September 5. To date, Sen. Grassley has only requested a fraction of these records from Kavanaugh's time as White House Counsel, completely disregarding the vast majority of the records archived.

He further touted the nominee as a mainstream judge with a record of "applying the law as it is written". He's met with dozens of senators who have nothing but positive things to say.

"At this current pace, we have plenty of time to review the rest of emails and other records that we will receive from President Bush and the National Archives", he said.

On the stroke of lunch, the impressive Shami picked up his second wicket with a ball that kept low and cannoned into Root's pads. But he demonstrated his range with a vertical-bat flick down to fine leg when Ashwin strayed in direction.

"Liberal Democrats don't need more time to review Judge Kavanaugh's record".

Judge Brett Kavanaugh was nominated on July 9, spurring intense interest in his work as a White House lawyer and with Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr. The committee has received about 175,000 pages from the Bush library, but has only publicly released 5,700 pages.

"Republicans" mad rush to hold this hearing after unilaterally deciding to block almost all of Judge Kavanaugh's records from public release is further evidence that they are hiding important information from the American people, and continues to raise the question, "What are they hiding?'" Schumer said in a statement.

Low inflation means there's no case for 'near term' rate hikes: RBA
The RBA maintained that the unemployment rate will stay around 5.25% through June 2020, before dropping to 5% in December. However, the forecasts for headline and underlying inflation in the September quarter have been revised down.

No committee hearings for Kavanaugh have been announced yet. This extends the timeline that was set for the committee's consideration of Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and Neil Gorsuch. But due to the 51-49 split in the Senate, Republicans will need to be almost unanimous, or persuade a few Democrats, if they want Kavanaugh to be confirmed.

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, officiates at the swearing-in of Judge Britt Grant to take a seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit in Atlanta at the U.S. District Courthouse in Washington. "Concerned Women for America's "Women for Kavanaugh" six-state bus tour spent time this week at Senator Grassley's town halls in Iowa, and we saw how enthusiastic Americans - especially women - are about Judge Kavanaugh's nomination", Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America, said. If Brett Kavanaugh was fit to be on the Supreme Court, Senate Republicans would have no issue releasing his full records.

The White House, which is determined to have Kavanaugh confirmed before the November elections as Republicans aim to deliver on Trump's priorities, applauded the schedule announcement.

After wrapping up the Mumbai schedule, Salman Khan and team Bharat have kick-started the shooting of the second schedule in Malta. However, after the initial confusion of Priyanka's decision, everything ended well when Katrina Kaif stepped into her shoes.

[I] t appears that senators belonging to the majority party are using outside channels to secure preferential access to records and to determine which documents will be released, and therefore have undue influence over both the Senate's and the public's perceptions of the nominee. Democratic senators have been infuriated with how Grassley and other Republicans have released Kavanaugh's documents in a slow trickle since the papers began arriving at the Senate late last week.
