One example that surfaced during the hearings and through newly-released records last week was Kavanaugh's involvement in the confirmation of Judge William Pryor to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit.

For The Washington Post, Eli Rosenberg detects signs that an "unusual crowdfunding campaign" by "a group of liberal activists in Maine" soliciting pledges to be contributed in 2020 to a Democrat challenging Sen.

"At the hearing, I was not expressing an opinion on whether particular drugs induce abortion; I used that phrase only to accurately recount the plaintiffs' own assertions", he wrote.

The campaign is just one of many created to influence Collins' vote on Kavanaugh, who opponents say could be the fifth vote in a majority Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Democrats argued that the documents were needed in order to answer a "fundamental question" of whether or not it was a valid assertion of executive privilege by the president. At least four Democrats on the committee have already said they will vote against his confirmation.

The Judiciary committee is slated to vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation Thursday, which will be followed by a vote on the Senate floor. In an op-ed for The Hill, Dr. Roger Klein explains why, "w$3 hen future Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed later this month, the unsung hero of the battle will be Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa)".

Under questioning last week, Kavanaugh clarified that while he may have attended meetings and hearing prep sessions, he wasn't the primary White House official assigned to Pryor.

According to Booker, the new documents provide "serious and concerning" evidence that Kavanaugh lied to the Senate when he claimed he was not involved with handling former President George W. Bush circuit court pick Charles Pickering, who had a record of hostility toward civil rights.

In a letter to the committee chairman, Sen. The gun safety advocate said he was glad Kavanaugh responded in writing, "but I now make the choice not to believe in the sincerity of the response". Wednesday's disclosure brings the total to 75. The conservative group Judicial Watch wants an investigation. He says the documents about Kavanaugh's work "raise more serious and concerning questions" about his honesty during his testimony before the committee.

Democratic senators and others working to defeat Kavanaugh's confirmation believe Kavanaugh significantly misled the Judiciary Committee more than a decade ago on his involvement in controversial Bush-era programs and judicial confirmations.
