Republican Chuck Grassley of Iowa refused to give Democrats time to read thousands of papers — from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s time at President George W. Bush’s administration — that were released in the middle of the night before Kavanaugh’s hearing.
Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris of California interrupted Grassley’s opening of the hearing with a demand for more time to read the papers:
Mr. Chairman I would like to be recognized for a question before we proceed. Mr. Chairman. I would like to be recognized to ask a question before we proceed. The committee received [requested documents] just last night, less than 15 hours ago. We believe this hearing should be postponed.
