TUNE IN NOW: Fox News Channel Has Special Coverage of the Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearings
The confirmation hearings for President Trump’s nominee to be the next Supreme Court justice, Brett Kavanaugh, are underway, and Fox News Channel has can't-miss coverage.
"Special Report" host Bret Baier and "The Story" host Martha MacCallum anchor special coverage as Kavanaugh appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill.
"Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace and Brit Hume will join Baier and MacCallum to provide insight and analysis.
The hearing got off to a fiery start on Tuesday, with Democratic lawmakers and protesters repeatedly interrupting the proceedings.
The questioning is expected to be grueling on Wednesday, and Kavanaugh is sure to be pressed on his views on a bevy of legal issues, including executive power, reproductive rights, gun violence and privacy.
In the days leading up to the hearing, Democrats slammed the White House for withholding more than 100,000 pages of records related to Kavanaugh, a former White House staffer and lawyer for Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr who currently sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley's office countered that significantly more documents of executive branch material have been provided than was the case with past nominees.
It said that 440,500 documents were produced in relation to Kavanaugh, compared with 182,000 for Justice Neil Gorsuch, 173,000 for Justice Elena Kagan and just 6,350 for Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
To prepare for the hearing, Kavanaugh has participated in private rehearsals coordinated by the White House Counsel's Office, which have included more than a dozen participants -- government lawyers, conservative academics, some of his former law clerks and even several senators.
