For USA Today, Richard Wolf reports that "Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh responded to more than 1,000 written questions from dissatisfied Democrats Wednesday by revealing more about his personal finances but little more about his views on the law".
The Senate Judiciary Committee delayed its vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh until next week, as the deeply bitter fight over his confirmation intensified and a handful of moderate senators continued to deliberate privately over whether to support him.
Kavanaugh wrote that he assumed the man who approached him "and touched my arm" during a break at the Senate Judiciary Committee proceedings had been one of the many protesters in the hearing room. A source with knowledge of the situation confirms the Intercept's reporting that this material initially came to Feinstein's attention through California Democrat, Rep. Anna Eshoo's office, which had received the information from someone at Stanford University.
Republicans are pushing to confirm Kavanaugh to the court by October 1, when the 2018-19 term begins.
According to the Huffington Post, Feinstein is in possession of a document related to Kavanaugh's nomination that she has so far refused to share publicly, despite multiple requests from her fellow Democratic colleagues. Despite those commitments, the letter said one member of the committee has released more than 40 documents without consent, referring to Booker. "Not until the eve of his confirmation has Sen".

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. At this time, he has not seen the letter in question, and is respecting the request for confidentiality.
In new written responses released late Wednesday, Kavanaugh says he would have shaken the hand of a school shooting victim's father during a break in last week's Senate hearing had he recognized him before being whisked away by security detail. Susan Collins, R-Me., if Collins votes for Kavanaugh's confirmation "could be backfiring". "She claimed Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was launching an '11th hour attempt to delay" the confirmation.
The Judiciary Committee, which has finished confirmation hearings for Kavanagh, is scheduled to vote next Thursday on whether to recommend that Kavanaugh's nomination be confirmed by the full Senate.
