Senator Calls Out Brett Kavanaugh: You Lied Under Oath, Now Face The Music

The case of the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh being irresponsibly pushed through the Senate hearings by President Donald Trump so that that man now sits on the highest court in the land, the Supreme Court, is a perfect illustration of everything that is wrong with American politics today. A white guy who has been accused of multiple sexual assaults (and has, of course, had no court hearing or trial relating to that whatsoever) is given a massive leg up by another white guy who similarly has a long string of uninvestigated sexual assault allegations to his name so that they both now occupy positions of immense power in our nation.

Now, though, that might all be about to come tumbling down, thanks to something Brett Kavanaugh did a long time ago that he never expected would come back to bite him in the ass, certainly not now.

Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin has brought to light a case from all the way back in 2006, when Kavanaugh allegedly lied under oath to the Senate as he was passing through Senate confirmation hearings on his way to becoming a fully fledged federal judge. At the time, Durbin was wised up to what was going on, so he repeatedly demanded answers and explanations from Kavanaugh. Of course, he was blanked – Kavanaugh simply refused to engage with him on any level at all.

Recently, Sen. Durbin brought this potentially highly damaging case right back into the limelight by tweeting a letter he had sent to Kavanaugh to that effect all the way back in 2007. His tweet read:

“In 2007 I sent Brett Kavanaugh this letter asking to explain his inaccurate and misleading testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee. I’m still waiting for an answer.”

Ouch.

The tweet came with a full copy of the letter he apparently sent, which includes the following damning statements:

“Yesterday the Washington Post published a lengthy article about Vice President Cheney’s role in the policymaking of the Bush administration. In this article, you are reported to have participated in a “heated” White House meeting in 2002 about whether U.S. citizens who had been declared enemy combatants should be given access to lawyers… These reports appear to contradict sworn testimony you gave to the Senate Judiciary Committee on May 9, 2006 at your nomination hearing… Therefore, I request that you prodive the Senate Judiciary Committee with an explanation for this apparent contradiction.”

Oh dear, Brett. Is there no limit to what that guy will do?
