One top Trump aide, budget chief Mick Mulvaney, warned behind closed doors on Saturday that even GOP candidates such as Texas Sen. But Graham said that while the op-ed's author was guilty of "disloyalty" and of being "cowardly", the op-ed was not "treason".

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday released Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh's responses to over 1,200 questions submitted by mostly Senate Democrats following his four-day hearings earlier this month.

Booker said the documents about Kavanaugh's work "raise more serious and concerning questions" about his honesty during his testimony before the committee.

"We lack the time".

From the very beginning, Kavanaugh's confirmation process has been denounced by Democrats and progressive groups as a "sham" orchestrated by Republicans to keep the public in the dark about crucial components of the judge's extreme right-wing record and to hide substantial evidence that Kavanaugh's previous testimony before the Senate does not hold up to close scrutiny.

Democratic senators and others working to defeat Kavanaugh's confirmation believe Kavanaugh significantly misled the Judiciary Committee more than a decade ago on his involvement in controversial Bush-era programs and judicial confirmations.

In fact, in leaked emails from 2003 the nominee said himself: "I am not sure that all legal scholars refer to Roe as the settled law of the land at the Supreme Court level since Court can always overrule its precedent, and three current Justices on the Court would do so".

Kavanaugh, a conservative federal appeals court judge nominated by Trump to the lifetime position on the high court, made no major missteps in two days of questioning by senators during his confirmation hearing last week.
