But Kavanaugh dodged Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein'squestion about whether a sitting president can "be required to respond to a subpoena", a query that could come into play as Special Counsel Robert Mueller investigates potential collusion between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation.
US Senator Kamala Harris on Wednesday questioned Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh about whether he had spoken with a particular law firm about special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.
But Leahy said that based on emails given to the Senate Judiciary Committee before the hearing, there is new evidence that Kavanaugh was aware of the stolen information.
Kavanaugh also said in response to pointed questions by Democratic Sen.
Though the documents released by Hiriono were stamped "committee confidential", they were released publicly by Sen. Mike Lee, Utah Republican, though, said that the referenced email had been deemed "confidential" by the committee, which means it can not be released or used to question a nominee.
"I am concerned because there is evidence that Mr. Miranda provided you with materials that were stolen from me and that would contradict your prior testimony", Leahy said.
Democrats say they have considerable misgivings about Kavanaugh's pledge to be nonpartisan, saying he has a history of conservative political activism.

The Supreme Court nominee is set to answer questions from senators throughout the day for the first time Wednesday.
Cornyn said it was "outrageous" that an invocation of attorney-client privilege by a lawyer working for the former president would not be respected by the Senate. "Truthfulness under oath is not an optional qualification for a Supreme Court nominee".
Not only that, Kavanaugh was also lambasted at the same hearing for refusing to shake the hand of Fred Guttenberg, whose daughter died in the Parkland mass shooting.
As they did the day before, a succession of shouting protesters interrupted the session, opposing Kavanaugh's nomination, before being removed by security personnel.
Democratic Senator Cory Booker appealed to Grassley's "sense of decency and integrity" and said the withholding of the documents by Republicans and the White House left lawmakers unable to properly vet Kavanaugh.
In full grandstanding mode, Booker on Thursday said, "I come from a long line as all of us do as Americans of understanding what that kind of civil disobedience is and I understand the consequences", he said. "I am deeply honored to be nominated to fill his seat on the Supreme Court", Kavanaugh said as Trumpannounced his nomination at the White House July 9.
