Kanavanaugh confirmation hearing set for Sept. 4

By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Friday, August 10, 2018

Republicans said Friday they’ve scheduled Judge Brett Kavanaugh for a confirmation hearing Sept. 4, moving ahead with a speedy schedule that could still see him confirmed in time to be on the Supreme Court before October.

Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley announced the hearing, saying there’s plenty of information out there for senators to evaluate the judge without waiting for potentially millions of pages of documents from the National Archives.

“It’s time for the American people to hear directly from Judge Kavanaugh at his public hearing,” Mr. Grassley said.

moving ahead with a speedy schedule
Speedy?...Uhhhh...no...

Samuel Alito was nominated on October 31st, 2005 and confirmed by the Senate on January 31st, 2006...Three months...

Elena Kagan was nominated on May 10, 2010 and confirmed by the Senate on August 5th, 2010...5 days short of three full months...


Kavanaugh was nominated on July 9, 2018....His hearing will be on September 4th, 2018...That's 5 days short of three full months, but that's ONLY the hearing...It's expected to last 3 or four days...

So if he's confirmed around September 7th or 8th, it is 100% INLINE with Alito's and Kagan's confirmations...

Nothing "speedy" about it...Sounds "status quo" to me...
