Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s first confirmation hearing is set for Sept. 4, said Republican Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, charmian of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Friday.
The date is in line with Republicans’ desire to confirm Kavanaugh, who was picked by President Donald Trump, by early October when the Supreme Court starts a new term, reported Politico.
“If we could get this all done by Oct. 1 when the Supreme Court starts its new fall session, [that] would be ideal,” Grassley said on conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt’s show on Aug. 1. “But I think we can get it done soon after that if we don’t get it done by Oct. 1.” (RELATED: This Is The Timeline For The Kavanaugh Confirmation)
Kavanaugh is currently a United States Circuit Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
