Senate Democrats on Sunday slammed the Trump administration's decision to withhold more than 100,000 pages on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's record, citing executive privilege.
"If we're lucky, we will see 6 percent of all of the documents that could be produced to reflect on Kavanaugh's position on issues," Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said on Fox News Sunday. "[President Trump] is saying and the White House is saying, 'The American people have no right to know.'"
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) likewise said on Meet the Press that it "isn't normal [that] we are not able to see 100,000 documents ... because the administration has said we can't see them."
Klobuchar noted that there are an additional 148,000 documents that have been shared with senators but not made public, adding that "you could ask some very interesting questions about these documents, that I'm unable to even say because I'm not able to make them public."
