Leading Senate Democrats reportedly caved Friday in their attempts to stonewall the confirmation process of Judge Brett Kavanaugh; agreeing to meet the potential Supreme Court Justice later this month.
According to the Washington Post, Senator Schumer and Senator Feinstein -the leading Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee- plan to hold face-to-face meetings with Kavanaugh after the Senate returns from its August recess.
“Schumer and Feinstein will start meeting with President Trump’s pick to succeed retired justice Anthony M. Kennedy after the Senate returns from its truncated recess Aug. 15,” writes the Post.
“In addition to questioning Judge Kavanaugh on health care, women’s freedom, presidential power and other issues, Senate Democrats intend to demand that he call for and support the release of all of his files from his time in the Bush White House,” added one Democratic aide.

BOOKER GOES BERSERK: Cory Says Kavanaugh Supporters ‘COMPLICIT IN EVIL’
Hyper-liberal Senator Cory Booker exploded on those supporting the President’s pick to join the Supreme Court Tuesday; saying those in favor of confirming Brett Kavanaugh are “complicit in evil.”
Booker was speaking alongside fellow Democrats -including Sen. Elizabeth Warren- when he viciously smeared those behind Kavanaugh’s nomination; adding the United States was in a “moral moment.”
“There’s so much at stake here, this has nothing to do with politics, it has to do with who we are as moral leaders… In a moral moment there is no neutral. In a moral moment there are no bystanders. You’re either complicit in evil […] or you’re fighting against it,” said the Senator.
“There’s a saying in the Abrahamic faiths one of the Psalms that says ‘Yea though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death.’ We are walking through the valley of the shadow of death. But that doesn’t say ‘Though I sit in the valley of the shadow of death,’ it doesn’t say, ‘I’m watching on the sidelines of the valley of the shadow of death, it says, ‘I am walking through the valley of the shadow of death,’” he added.
BREAKING: President Trump Picks BRETT KAVANAUGH to Join Supreme Court
President Trump officially unveiled his pick to replace outgoing Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court Monday night; announcing his decision to nominate federal appeals court judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh currently sits on the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, which commonly rules on hot-button issues and major cases regarding federal law.
The 53-year-old judge was nominated to the circuit court by former President George W. Bush and confirmed back in 2006 by a 57-36 vote.
The President’s comments come after days of fevered speculation surrounding the nation’s highest court with swing-vote Anthony Kennedy announcing his planned retirement just weeks ago.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi vowed to fight the President’s nominee Monday night, saying her party will work hard to “avenge President Obama,” whose Supreme Court pick Merrick Garland stalled throughout the confirmation process.
