Dear Senator--

I am writing to express my concerns about the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States. The appointment is a lifetime position, and nominees should be examined carefully before being placed on the bench of the highest court in the land.

I am worried that the Senate is rushing things to get him confirmed as quickly as possible, without a thorough examination of his record. Naturally, I can’t expect that anybody can examine all the records regarding his history, with there being so many of them. But the amount of records that has been released is distressingly minimal compared to the information available. Furthermore, these records have yet to be reviewed by the National Archives, and it has been estimated that such an examination will take until October of this year. This means that the hearings scheduled for early September will have to work with incomplete information derived, in turn, from incomplete information. For example, none of the records pertaining to his time as a White House staff secretary have been requested, despite their importance.

I ask that you urge the Senate to delay the hearings until the records that have been released so far have been thoroughly examined by the National Archives. I also request that these records be reviewed by all senators prior to calling a vote to confirm Mr. Kavanaugh.

Thank you,

Sheila O’Shea

I got the info for this letter from this article. Gotta love me some internets.
