September 2: During the interview, Klobuchar also lamented that it's “not normal” that Trump is not allowing senators to see more than 100,000 documents from Kavanaugh's time working in the George W. Bush administration and that about 148,000 of the ones they have seen are not allowed to be shared with the public. Klobuchar said that if she could comment on the documents now shielded from the public, she could raise “interesting questions” about Kavanaugh's qualifications. "It would certainly strongly bolster the arguments that I could make,” she said. (The Washington Post)

August 24: Given the possibility of criminal wrongdoing by the President, doubts that Judge Kavanaugh believes a president can even be investigated, and the unprecedented lack of transparency regarding this nominee's record, we should not move forward with hearings on September 4th. Instead, we should have a special meeting of the Committee to discuss a bipartisan, fair, and transparent process for moving forward. (Twitter)

August 8: “The next member of the Supreme Court will make decisions that will affect the lives of people across the country, potentially determining whether health insurers can deny coverage to people who are sick or have a pre-existing condition and whether women’s rights are protected,” said Klobuchar. “The American people deserve to have all the facts, and that means the Senate must be able to thoroughly review his record and have the full range of documents available to examine.” (

July 9: Serious concerns I have about Judge Kavanaugh in addition to the obvious health care & separation of power issues: He ruled that the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was unconstitutional (reversed by full Circuit Court) & went out of his way to dissent against net neutrality (Twitter)
