Many liberal politicians have concerns over what the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court would mean for progressive regarding women's rights.

The just over 100,000 pages of material was withheld after the Trump White House "directed that we not provide these documents", wrote William Burck, the lawyer handling the document release on behalf of the Bush administration.

In Kavanaugh's case, Republicans are circumventing the normal vetting process for Supreme Court nominees by in order to have him confirmed by October 1, the start of the court's new term.

The constitutional limits of executive power - including whether presidents must comply with federal subpoenas or if they can be called to testify or be indicted - have yet to be settled by the high court, making Kavanaugh's views on the matter a point of keen interest for Democrats.

The documents also reportedly "reflect deliberations and candid advice concerning the selection and nomination of judicial candidates, the confidentiality of which is critical to any president's ability to carry out this core constitutional executive function", Burck said, according to the Times.

Schumer said the decision to withhold the documents "has all the makings of a cover-up".

Democrats seemed to realize they are fighting a losing battle after attacks on the judge's personal finances and his activities while in the Bush White House fell short. In a release, the committee pointed out that Grassley had promised to facilitate the release of another set of documents, now available only to members, if senators keep their requests targeted to specific documents. Schumer tweeted Sunday morning. "But it happened because we were so frustrated because President Obama wasn't able to get his nominees, but I think we would have been in a better place now", she said on NBC's "Meet the Press".

"Democrats have more than enough information to understand that this is a highly qualified jurist that should be the next Supreme Court justice", Wisconsin U.S. Senator Ron Johnson, a Republican, said in an interview on ABC's "This Week".

But Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) said it's "much more powerful" if Democrats stay and ask tough questions of the nominee.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., blasted the withholdings.
