Baseball tickets? Gambling debts? Democrats dig for answers from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh

E-mail Print PDF
Brett kavanaugh peppered with questionsSenate Democrats are demanding written answers from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to more than 1,000 questions following a four-day confirmation hearing last week that elicited more heat than light.

The queries go beyond the law to policy, politics and Kavanaugh's personal life, including his finances and potential benefactors. Several senators sought details on the federal appeals court judge's debt-fueled purchase of baseball tickets and asked if he has been a gambler.

The avalanche of questions follows more than 20 hours of testimony last week and some 17,000 pages of personal backup material submitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee. It represents an escalation of the battle over documents that began after President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh, 53, to replace retired Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy in July.
