As Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and other Democrats defied Senate rules and objections from Republicans to publicly release emails written by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) blasted out some Kavanaugh documents himself, containing the same pages Booker released.

According to Grassley’s spokeswoman Taylor Foy, the chairman’s staff “worked throughout the night to help facilitate 11th hour requests” from Democrats on the committee.

The bulk of the documents deal with racial profiling and affirmative action, and include the 12 pages Booker released minutes earlier. Democrats on the committee have been accusing the Republicans of hiding important information on Kavanaugh by refusing to publicly release the emails.
