The White House has cited the approval of the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary while pushing the nomination to the Supreme Court of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
But the committee is now reopening its investigation, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.
“New information of a material nature regarding temperament during the Sept. 27th hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee has prompted a reopening of the Standing Committee’s evaluation,” the body wrote, in a letter to Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA).
Last week, Association President Robert Carlson asked the Senate Judiciary Committee to delay the vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination.
“The Committee does not expect to complete a process and re-vote prior to the scheduled Senate vote,” the letter continued.
“Our original report must be read in conjuction with the foregoing,” the letter added.
