Yours Truly recently did a post on how Senate Judiciary Republicans are trying to ram through Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh while hiding crucial documents about his tenure at the George W Bush White House. Specifically, Republicans are working hard to hide from Senate Democrats, documents that will prove Kavanaugh lied to congress during his confirmation hearings for the DC Circuit Court of Appeals.
Well it appears Senate Democrats are now ready to fight for the documents in court. In a move that will surely thrill grassroots Democrats, Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer today said Dems are ready to sue the National Archives for Kavanaugh’s full record if the organization does not honor the Dem FOIA request.
Since Republicans have chosen secrecy over transparency, Democrats issued a FOIA request to the National Archives, seeking the full gamut of Kavanaugh’s records, including from his time as Staff Secretary.
We stand ready to sue the Archives for his full records, if necessary.

Hopefully this is not just a threat to sue by Senate Dems because grassroots Dems expect an all out warfare on Kavanaugh–or as they say in Twitter circles–#KavaNO!!
