Manchin voted to confirm President Trump's previous Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch.
Updated at 4:19 p.m. | The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a three- or four- day confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh starting September 4, Chairman Charles E. Grassley, R-Iowa, announced on Friday. The hearings are expected to last three or four days.
He further touted the nominee as a mainstream judge with a record of "applying the law as it is written".
August 2: Former President George W. Bush revealed he is working with William A. Burck - a right-wing political operative who served as a deputy to Kavanaugh in 2005 and is now the attorney representing Steve Bannon, Reince Priebus, and Donald McGahn in the Russian Federation probe - to vet which documents from Kavanaugh's record are released to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Grassley, R-Iowa, said there's "plenty of time" to review documents but now it's time for Americans "to hear directly" from Kavanaugh.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said earlier Friday in a radio interview that he hopes Kavanaugh would be confirmed by the Senate "before the first Monday in October". Grassley's aides have said they expect to release more of those papers on a rolling basis.

"With the Senate already reviewing more documents than for any other Supreme Court nominee in history, Chairman Grassley has lived up to his promise to lead an open, transparent and fair process", said White House spokesman Raj Shah. Democrats argue that it is a "mad rush" while Republicans are saying it is time to get on with the process.
Following the hearings and the vote from the committee, Kavanaugh's nomination would then be considered by the full Senate.
But Grassley noted in his announcement that his team has reviewed thousands of pages of Kavanaugh's judicial opinions and records from the White House legal service, and the timeline still provides room for review of additional documents.
Democrats, led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY and Sen. Kavanaugh will face questioning starting September 5.
Democrats have pushed for access to government records associated with Kavanaugh, who served as White House staff secretary under George W. Bush as well as an associate counsel in the Office of Independent Counsel during the investigation into President Bill Clinton's conduct. John McCain has been receiving cancer treatment in his home state, Republicans can not afford to lose any votes and hope to advance Kavanaugh's nomination if no Democrats support him.
"My colleagues should be a "no" on this nominee unless Judge Kavanaugh specifically commits that he will recuse himself on any issues that involve President Trump's personal financial dealings or the special counsel", said Sen.
