DOJ Releases Thousands of Gorsuch Documents

DOJ RELEASES 144,000 PAGES OF GORSUCH DOCUMENTS: “The Wednesday night release of the more than 144,000 pages of documents — pursuant to a February 21 request from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and ranking member Dianne Feinstein — comes less than two weeks before Gorsuch’s confirmation hearing and could shed light on his work during his relatively brief tenure serving in the George W. Bush administration,” reported CNN​. While the majority of the documents will be made available to the public, 3,100 pages “will be made available only to selected committee staff members because they are protected under ‘constitutional or common law privileges’ and DOJ has ‘certain confidentiality interests’ in them,” according to Politico.
