Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), during a press conference on Thursday, said that Democrats merely want thousands of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s previous documents so that they can stop his nomination.

“If those documents come out, it’ll persuade others maybe to vote against him,” he told reporters.

The Senate minority leader paused and gritted his teeth, seemingly aware of his inadvertent admission.

“I opposed Kavanaugh in 2006 for many of the same reasons,” Schumer added.

Democrats have demanded thousands of additional documents from Kavanaugh’s past, in addition to the already tens of thousands of documents that Congress has acquired. As Schumer just admitted, it appears simply to be a ploy to sink the nomination.
