Republican leaders slammed House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler Wednesday after the top Democrat demanded new documents regarding recently confirmed Supreme Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
“Nadler’s request came days after a liberal lion of the high court, Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, defended Kavanaugh as a ‘very decent, very smart individual,’ and long after progressive activists have largely moved on to other matters,” reports Fox News.
“Senate Democrats spent months launching false accusations in an attempt to smear Justice Kavanaugh’s reputation and block his confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court, and now House Democrats want to follow suit with yet another fishing expedition to tarnish his good name,” Rep. Doug Collins said.

Nadler’s request included “certain presidential records related to Kavanaugh’s service in the White House from 2001 to 2006.
“As a result of this process, the Senate Judiciary Committee received only a small fraction of Justice Kavanaugh’s White House record before voting on his nomination,” Nadler wrote.
“When are we going to move on from the smear campaigns, and begin working on real, bipartisan solutions to improve the lives of the Americans we were elected to represent?” Collins added.
