The Democrats are playing sabotage tactic to delay confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as they have no other cards to play. The Senate is still running under the rules of former Senator Harry Reid where they don’t need 60 votes to confirm. Democrats knew they are in trouble so they are resisting Tuesday’s confirmations.
Democrats got their marching orders from Sen. Chuck Schumer who reportedly had a meeting over the Labor Day weekend with Democrat leaders to delay the hearings.

Democrats cited the release of approximately 42,000 pages of documents Monday evening from Kavanaugh’s work in the George W. Bush White House, and a further 100,000 pages that have not been produced because President Trump asserted executive privilege.
Before Monday, 415,000 pages from Kavanaugh’s White House service were produced to the Senate Judiciary Committee. The D.C. Circuit Court judge worked in the Bush White House Counsel office from 2001 to 2003, and then as staff secretary from 2003 to 2006.
As protesters shouted in opposition to Kavanaugh, Democratic senators spoke over Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, who shut down requests for a roll call vote on delaying the proceedings.
“I appeal to your sense of fairness, decency, and the commitment you’ve made to transparency. This violates what you have said and called for, sir,” Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., told Grassley.
Grassley fired back: “You spoke about my decency and integrity. And I think you are taking advantage of my decency and integrity.”
