Keep in mind Democrats have already said they were going to try to stall the nomination by asking for millions of documents.  9999hair out0000

WASHINGTON— Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has asked federal prosecutors to help review the government documents of Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, according to a letter obtained by The New York Times on Wednesday.

Mr. Rosenstein’s request was an unusual insertion of politics into federal law enforcement. While the Justice Department has helped work on previous Supreme Court nominations, department lawyers in Washington typically carry out that task, not prosecutors who pursue criminal investigations nationwide.

But in an email sent this week to the nation’s 93 United States attorneys, Mr. Rosenstein asked each office to provide up to three federal prosecutors “who can make this important project a priority for the next several weeks.” Names were to be submitted to Mr. Rosenstein’s office by the end of Wednesday.

Because he's on the side of the liberal establishment and he can.  Anything to delay the nomination and they perhaps are hoping to delay the SCOTUS confirmation until after the mid terms.

"It’s flat-out wrong to have career federal prosecutors engaged in a political process like the vetting of a Supreme Court nominee,” said Christopher Hunter, a former F.B.I. agent and federal prosecutor who is running for Congress.

“It takes them away from the mission they’re supposed to be fulfilling, which is effective criminal justice enforcement.”


This from a Democrat! :whistle:

Oh, FFS people....

Just the other day, it was reported Kavanaugh had a very long paper trail.  It seems appropriate to request the assistance, given the fact this isn’t unprecedented or uncalled for.

While federal prosecutors have not been tapped to help with recent nominations, including Justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, “the scope of the production of executive branch documents we’ve been asked for is many, many times as large,” said Sarah Isgur Flores, a Justice Department spokeswoman.

Ms. Flores added that federal prosecutors had been used to vet Supreme Court nominees in the past.

Sessions is worthless, letting Rosenstein run the DOJ.
Principles matter. Words matter.

Exactly.  According to the press he's busy with the opioid crisis.  It seems he has distanced himself completely and Rosenstein is in charge now.
