From the Miami Herald July 9 2018

"Jeb Bush’s brother, George, then president, nominated Kavanaugh in 2003 for the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit — a move that didn’t sit well with Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin.

4. Essentially, he's the GOP's Michael Cohen.

The FIXER on the bench.

That's it.

And that puts a lot of pressure on Kav. Which is why he breaks down and blubbers. They've got him by the short and curlies and he's under tremendous pressure.

Like Cohen.
