WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar released the below statement urging the full release of documents relevant to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, including those related to his time as White House staff secretary.

"The next member of the Supreme Court will make decisions that will affect the lives of people across the country, potentially determining whether health insurers can deny coverage to people who are sick or have a pre-existing condition and whether women’s rights are protected. The American people deserve to have all the facts, and that means the Senate must be able to thoroughly review his record and have the full range of documents available to examine. When Justice Elena Kagan’s nomination was considered, more than 170,000 pages of documents were produced for senators to review. The standard should be the same. "
