She aired similar concerns about "148,000 documents that I've seen that you cannot see because they will not allow us to make them public so I can't even tell you about them right now on this show", referring to additional material that only members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are being allowed to view.

The Trump administration will withhold 100,000 pages of documents related to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's White House service, citing executive privilege.

"If Brett Kavanaugh is appointed to the Supreme Court, he will undoubtedly be the deciding vote to gut Roe v.

It also claimed that the Senate has received only 6 percent (415,000 pages) of Kavanaugh's White House records. John McCain and Russell D. Feingold.
