Kavanaugh Committed Perjury

Get this jackass the hell OUT! He is a fraud and a liar.

'Kavanaugh Committed Perjury': New Documents Appear to Show Trump Supreme Court Pick Lied Under Oath Multiple Times
"Maybe there's a reason Senate Republicans tried to keep Kavanaugh's emails secret?"

Snipet-- "How much perjury is too much perjury from a Supreme Court nominee?"

That was how one commentator responded to a flurry of new documents and emails released on Thursday by Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) that appear to show President Donald Trump's Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath during hearings for his nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals in 2004 and 2006.

In 2004—after a Senate sergeant-at-arms report found that Republican staffer Manuel Miranda had stolen confidential communications and documents from Democratic senators—Kavanaugh told the Senate that he never received "documents that appeared...to have been drafted or prepared by Democratic staff members."

But new emails made public by Leahy on Thursday appear to show that Kavanaugh "got 8 pages of material taken verbatim from [the Vermont senator's] files, obviously written by Dem staff, labeled 'not [for] distribution." The stolen material detailed Democrats' efforts to oppose President George W. Bush's judicial nominees.

4. He is a Republican. They are allowed to pull that kind of thing without fear of retribution

It he were a Democrat, they would be yelling, "lock him up" instead of "lock him in!"

7. Agree!

When Democrats commit perjury, even if it's about sex, republicans will impeach you out of office but when republicans commit perjury, they will ignore it. Hypocrites.

14. "He is a Republican. They are allowed to pull that kind of thing without fear of retribution."

Then it is time to rewrite the book, because NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW. Time to start prosecuting white collar crimes to the max in my opinion.

19. What does the white collar have to do with it?

It doesn't stop there. These people are also the trigger-happy gun nuts (both with and without badges) who gun down unarmed people on a whim and rarely suffer incarceration, let alone their preferred form of injected retribution. When Trump said he could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue in broad daylight and suffer no consequences, most people thought he meant it figuratively. Trump's speech isn't sophisticated enough to formulate things figuratively. Republicans are being literal when they come out with lines like that, and we don't get to rewrite their rule book.

21. I'm using the same argument here that I use for "illegal" immigration.

Go after those with the power. Hit the people who take advantage of the system and the people without power. When corruption is uncovered, hit it hard with consequences. As for the play book, I am talking about "our" play book. I see the "average" American person sitting back and accepting all of the corruption because "we can't do anything about it." At 75 years of age, I am sick of this. If we don't do something about it now, the future generations, your and my children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and all the young people to come will be the ones to suffer. I won't be around to see this happen, but I sure as hell hate to leave this world with the legacy that now appears to be the one my generation will be leaving. I may be old but I have fight left in me. Get involved, make changes that you can, work for changes that can't be accomplished right now, GOTV!!!! Don't sit back and accept what is happening.

5. Why is this hearing even continuing?

It's been proven he committed perjury under oath and that's a crime and should automatically disqualify him from SCOTUS.

20. Except for one thing

Committing perjury while Republican comes with the grant of automatic immunity and exoneration these days. Just ask Chuck Grassley or Orrin Hatch. The only thing that would disqualify him from SCOTUS in Republican eyes would be changing his party affiliation to Democratic or converting to Islam.

6. This Isn't Kavanaugh's First Time Perjuring Himself-He Should Be Disbarred-Not Given Seat on SCOTUS

How many times do the Republicans need to show us what criminals they are before we believe them?

He is unfit to practice law, let alone serve as a Supreme Court justice. This should end now.

12. He also perjured himself on the torture issue in his prior confirmation hearing.

I heard a Senator questioning him on day one about this on NPR. Not sure which one it was, I was driving and tuned in after the intro. They actually played a tape (video but I only heard audio) of his confirmation where he flatly denied having any involvement in Bush torture policies. But documents proved he did and according to the male Senator asking questions (a Dem), he later admitted to that Senator in his office that he had been involved.

That is serious,intentional perjury, even worse than lying (but maybe claiming failed memory or didn't read them) about documents provided by Dems he claimed not to have seen.

Dems should go on media in every city in America and nationally listing all the counts of perjury against this judge and argue he shoudl be impeached and certainly not seated for a lifetime appointment in the decisive seat on the highest court in the land. Period.
