Dem Senator Zeroes In On GW Bush Lawyer Withholding Kavanaugh Docs

September 4, 2018 10:38 am

Bill Burck — a private lawyer for former President George W. Bush who has been deciding which Brett Kavanaugh documents from his time in the Bush administration would be turned over to the Senate — got an extended shoutout Tuesday as Judiciary Democrats entered their second hour of holding up Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court hearings due to the lack of transparency during the confirmation process.

Who is he? Who is paying him?” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) said. He noted that Burck is not a government employee, and sarcastically referenced the constitution Kavanaugh is said to carry in his pocket.

It doesn’t include Mr. Burck,” Durbin said.
