"It's just unbelievable to me that they make such a farce out of this", Hatch, R-Utah, said at news conference with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, including Sen.

"As I've continued to say, one of the most important jobs of any US senator is to fully vet any nominee to serve on the Supreme Court, the highest court in our land", Heitkamp said in a statement.

Since several Democratic senators have already announced their no votes against Kavanaugh, he questioned "the sincerity of demands" for more.

Yet in a potential complication for Republican hopes to hold confirmation hearings next month, the National Archives warned Thursday that it would not be able to fulfill the GOP's request for documents until October.

There are two separate reviews of documents happening simultaneously: One by the Bush team and another by the National Archives.

But Republicans have refused to request records from Kavanaugh's time serving in the Bush White House as staff secretary from 2003-2006, saying such documents are irrelevant to his nomination process.

Grassley had requested the documents to begin rolling production by August 1, to be completed by August 15.

Republicans have so far only agreed to request documents from Kavanaugh's days as White House counsel under George W. Bush; Democrats are pushing for the records relating to his time as Bush's staff secretary as well.

"I can't envision a scenario where that vote is delayed", a source close to GOP leadership told Politico. But they don't contain the broader cache of files being sought by Democrats from Kavanaugh's time as Bush's staff secretary. Gary Stern, the general counsel for the National Archives, wrote Grassley a letter Thursday that said the request could be more than 900,000 pages. According to Stern's letter, it simply would not be realistic for the Archives to compile and submit all of the necessary documentation in such an abbreviated period of time.

Hatch said he's "sick and tired" of the partisanship and that Kavanaugh would ultimately be confirmed.

"Those are documents that presumably our colleagues have looked at, but they haven't found much in it to build a case against the nominee so now they've chose to take it down a different path, which I believe is more of a stall tactic than anything else", said Tillis. Tillis added this when asked about the signing statements on interrogation: "I want to learn about what he has done in the 307 opinions and his writings about his jurisprudence and whether or not he's qualified to be in the role of the Supreme Court".
