Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy director for the Judicial Crisis Network, which has already launched ads in support of Kavanaugh's confirmation, said the Democrats' anger was just their attempt to stall the nomination.
As Karen Townsend pointed out earlier, the Democratic strategy is to stall over document production in hopes of derailing the nomination down the road.
Kavanaugh was nominated 57 days before the announcement about a hearing date was made Friday afternoon.
The Judiciary Committee will hold up to four days of review, with Kavanaugh to begin facing questions on Day 2, September 5, said committee chairman Sen. Then outside witnesses, legal experts, and the American Bar Association will follow.
"Every day, Republican obstruction of Kavanaugh's record gets worse and worse", said Chuck Schumer, the Senate minority leader on Thursday.

For me, it was a dream come true. " A match where I needed six changes, not three ". Or you believe in the pundits and go with what they say.
The coalition letters, organized by Open the Government, come on the heels of similar letters from Schumer and Judiciary Committee Democrats.
Grassley's team of counsels and other aides have reviewed 4,800 pages of legal opinions that Kavanaugh wrote, more than 17,000 pages related to Kavanaugh's committee questionnaire, and more than 184,000 pages of the nominee's documents from his tenure working in the George W. Bush White House and for independent counsel Kenneth Starr.
"As I said after his nomination, Judge Kavanaugh is one of the most respected jurists in the country and one of the most qualified nominees ever to be considered by the Senate for a seat on our highest court", Grassley said in a statement Friday. The panel has additionally received 174,000 pages from his work for Bush in the White House counsel's office.
"Obviously, these hearings are just the beginning of the confirmation process". He has a record of judicial independence and applying the law as it is written. "The committee also expects to receive hundreds of thousands of additional pages of Executive Branch documents", the Judiciary Committee released.
Democrats, led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY and Sen.
[I] t appears that senators belonging to the majority party are using outside channels to secure preferential access to records and to determine which documents will be released, and therefore have undue influence over both the Senate's and the public's perceptions of the nominee.
