The Trump administration is keeping 100,000 pages of documents related to supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s time in the Bush White House under lock and key.

Trump’s White House is claiming presidential privilege, according to an Associated Press report. George W. Bush’s attorney, Bill Burck, told the Senate Judiciary Committee it had finished its work reviewing and gathering the documents, according to the letter obtained by the AP.

A total of 267,000 pages from Kavanaugh’s time at the Bush White House are being made public to senators as they ready for his confirmation hearing. But 27,110 documents, or 101,921 pages of Kavanaugh’s record, are being withheld.

The article goes on to state the following:

“27,110 documents (101,921 pages) have not been provided because … they have been identified as traditionally protected by constitutional privilege, and the White House, after consultation with the Department [of Justice], has directed that we not provide these documents for this reason,” Bush’s attorney wrote to senators, according to more details published by BuzzFeed News.

Responding to the news, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) tweeted: We’re witnessing a Friday night document massacre. President Trump’s decision to step in at the last moment and hide 100k pages of Judge Kavanaugh’s records from the American public is not only unprecedented in the history of SCOTUS [nominees], it has all the makings of a cover-up. Republicans in the Senate and the President of the United States are colluding to keep Judge Kavanaugh’s records secret, and trying to hide their actions from the American people by doing it on the Friday night of a holiday weekend. What are they trying so desperately to hide?
