Additional 85,000 Pages of Kavanaugh’s WHCO Records Become Public

Committee receives supplemental questionnaire material

WASHINGTON – The Senate Judiciary Committee today released more than 85,000 pages of material from Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s service as a White House lawyer, bringing the total volume of Judge Kavanaugh’s public Executive Branch records to more than 287,000 pages. The previous high water mark for such material was roughly 180,000 pages released during the committee’s consideration of Justice Neil Gorsuch.  The committee also received additional material to supplement Judge Kavanaugh’s committee questionnaire, which is also publicly available.

Bush Administration were initially produced to the committee by President Bush on a committee confidential basis while they were prepared for public release. Today’s release is the sixth subset of that material to become public and includes records from each of President Bush’s previous productions to the committee. It includes:
