The confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will begin September 4, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley said in a statement Friday.
The hearings should last three to four days, Grassley said, a timetable that aligns with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's plan to get Kavanaugh on the bench before the midterm elections.
