The forms show in 2016 he accrued a credit card bill between $45,000 and $150,000 that was spent on home improvements and Washington Nationals season tickets for himself and some friends. Shah said the undisclosed number of unidentified friends paid Kavanaugh back for their share of the tickets.

Kavanaugh, who has never worked in the private sector, showed two investments on public disclosure forms for previous year, which were worth a combined maximum of $65,000.

Kavanaugh's financial disclosure shows that in 2016, he reported $60,000 to $200,000 of debt from three credit cards and a United States government loan, some of which was spent on home improvements.

On Wednesday, the former press secretary for Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign told ABC's Powerhouse Politics podcast hosts Jonathan Karl and Rick Klein that "there's more than a million pages of documents" from Kavanaugh's time working under President George W. Bush.

McConnell compared the Democrats' quick targeting of Kavanaugh to their targeting and successful blocking of Judge Robert Bork, who President Reagan nominated to the Supreme Court.

However, Brewer said she does not think McCain will make it back to the Senate in order to vote on the Kavanaugh confirmation. Judges are required by law to submit financial disclosures.

But for Kavanaugh, the differences are stark between his finances and those of his would-be peers on the Court. He reported between $60,000 to $200,000 in debt among three credit cards and a loan in 2006, the same year he was confirmed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

She also said that Trump vowed to only appoint judges to the Supreme Court who would overturn the Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion.

Justice Neil Gorsuch, the Supreme Court's latest addition to the bench, reported $3.6 million and $10.5 million in assets on his latest financial disclosure.

Al Kauffman, a professor at St. Mary's University School of Law, said Kavanaugh has a pretty good chance at getting confirmed based on his qualifications, but it will be a very close vote.

"The vacancy left by Justice [Anthony] Kennedy's retirement is a critical one for the future of civil rights, civil liberties, and our democracy", Jonathan Greenblatt, the league's CEO and national director, said in a statement.
