Statement from White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec on Judge Brett Kavanaugh:

Throughout his confirmation process, Judge Kavanaugh has had 65 meetings with senatorsincluding with Senator Feinsteinsat through over 30 hours of testimony, addressed over 2,000 questions in a public setting and additional questions in a confidential session.Not until the eve of his confirmation has Sen. Feinstein or anyone raised the specter of new information about him.

Throughout 25 years of public service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has thoroughly and repeatedly vetted Judge Kavanaugh, dating back to 1993, forsome of the most highly sensitive roles. He has served in the Office of Independent Counsel, the White House, and on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, all before his nomination earlier this year to serve as Associate Justice on the Supreme Court.

Senator Schumer promised to oppose Judge Kavanaughs nomination with everything I have, and it appears he is delivering with this 11thhour attempt to delay his confirmation.
