Kavanaugh needs just 50 votes to be confirmed.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) said Friday the confirmation hearing for Judge Brett Kavanaugh to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court will begin Tuesday, September 4.
Grassley has previously said Kavanaugh's vetting process is probably the "deepest dive" ever conducted on a Supreme Court nominee.
As Karen Townsend pointed out earlier, the Democratic strategy is to stall over document production in hopes of derailing the nomination down the road.

The memo provides greater insight into Kavanaugh's views on executive power that are expected to feature prominently in the Senate confirmation hearings. Opening statements will be delivered on September 4 and Kavanaugh will begin questioning on September 5. Then outside witnesses, legal experts, and the American Bar Association will follow.
Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn criticized Democrats who oppose Kavanaugh's confirmation in a statement.
Grassley's team of counsels and other aides have reviewed 4,800 pages of legal opinions that Kavanaugh wrote, more than 17,000 pages related to Kavanaugh's committee questionnaire, and more than 184,000 pages of the nominee's documents from his tenure working in the George W. Bush White House and for independent counsel Kenneth Starr. "It's time for the American people to hear directly from Judge Kavanaugh at his public hearing".
He has met privately with nearly all the Republican senators and one Democrat as supporters try to build momentum for confirmation. At this current pace, we have plenty of time to review the rest of emails and other records that we will receive from President Bush and the National Archives.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.), the Judiciary Committee's top Democrat, raised concerns about a "lack of transparency" in releasing Kavanaugh's papers in a new letter to Grassley on Friday.
"It means that the chairman is telling the American people that this hearing is barreling forward, no matter what, no matter how little information is available to the Senate and public or how many shortcuts the committee has to take", she said. Of that small portion, only 5,800 non-substantive documents were released publicly. This process gives an unfair advantage to senators supporting Judge Kavanaugh's nomination, at the expense of a fully transparent process that allows for full disclosure and scrutiny by all voting lawmakers.
