Democrats say they're prepared to sue if their request for documents relating to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh isn't fulfilled.

Party members filed a Freedom of Information Act request earlier this month for all documents relating to Kavanaugh's time working for the George W. Bush administration. They said they wanted documents in 20 business days, setting the deadline during Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing. 

Democrats say the documents could shed light on how Kavanaugh would rule as a justice. Republicans say the process has been transparent and that Democrats are purposely stonewalling the process for political gain.
