Trump nominatedKavanaugh after interviewing several candidates and eventually focusing his consideration on four: Kavanaugh, Michigan federal judge Raymond Kethledge, and federal judges Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman.
On Wednesday, the former press secretary for Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign told ABC's Powerhouse Politics podcast hosts Jonathan Karl and Rick Klein that "there's more than a million pages of documents" from Kavanaugh's time working under President George W. Bush.
The White House meanwhile has leaned on them, with Trump meeting separately with the two shortly after Kennedy's resignation announcement. Speculation is now running rampant on both sides as to whether Kavanaugh would vote to overturn Roe, in what may be the first clear pro-life majority the court has ever had.

Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski was re-elected in Alaska in 2016 with 45% of the vote for her third term in office. Neither faces re-election this year, and both are centrists who've backed abortion rights and helped block their party's 2017 effort to repeal former President Barack Obama's health care statute. GOP leaders, with a slim majority in the Senate, are anxious to have Kavanaugh in place for the start of the court's session in October - and before the November congressional elections. "Obviously, even if we had every Democrat, we need two Republicans".
"Now that the political winds have swayed and more progressives are demanding action, I would not be surprised to see the establishment follow our lead", Williams added.
"No investigation of a president!" Plus, Kavanaugh has a conservative record on abortion, but he has alsotestified to the Senate in the past that he would respect Roe.
"Because of Donald Trump's openly Islamophobic, white supremacist and racist views and policies targeting minority and immigrant communities, it is incumbent upon the Senate to question Mr Kavanaugh about his opinions on the protection of civil rights, religious freedom and the rights of immigrants", he said.
