LIE 1
In 2004, Kavanaugh claimed that the nomination of anti-abortion, anti-LGBTQ judge William Pryor was “not one that I worked on personally.”
TRUTH
Newly released emails showed Kavanaugh was involved in selecting Pryor, interviewing him, and working to confirm him.

LIE 2
In 2006, Kavanaugh denied he “primarily handl[ed]” the nomination of Judge Charles Pickering, who had pushed to reduce the sentence of a man convicted of burning a cross in front of an interracial couple’s house.
TRUTH
Emails released this year show that Kavanaugh prepared documents on Pickering and worked on a draft op-ed in support of the nominee.

LIE 3
In 2006, Kavanaugh denied that he “handled” the nomination of William Haynes.
TRUTH
Recent emails revealed that Kavanaugh played a large role in Haynes nomination, including determining that Haynes “would be an across-the-board judicial conservative”.

Etc.....


A humble, related recommendation: Don't stop telling everyone to vote. Ask random people if they would please dive into history with us...

4. More lies from the list:


LIE 4
In 2004, Kavanaugh denied knowing that he had received documents stolen from Democratic senators during the Bush administration, claiming that he was “not aware of that matter ever until I learned of it in the media late last year.”
TRUTH
Emails showed that Kavanaugh received stolen information about Senator Leahy and was told to hold it in the “strictest confidence” and to keep it confidential — Kavanaugh should have known that it was improperly obtained.
Kavanaugh’s claims otherwise were deemed by one fact checker to “defy logic”.

LIE 5
In a 2004 written questionnaire, Kavanaugh wrote “These meetings, calls, and emails were typical of how judicial confirmations have been handled in past TRUTH
As Glenn Kessler noted in the Washington Post, Kavanaugh’s claims that his interactions with Miranda were “typical” of past administrations is “not accurate”.

LIE 6
In 2006, Kavanaugh again denied knowing that he had received the stolen documents saying that he “Did not know about it, did not suspect it.”
TRUTH
Emails showed that Kavanaugh received stolen information about Senator Leahy and was told to hold it in the “strictest confidence” and to keep it confidential — Kavanaugh should have known that it was improperly obtained.

LIE 7
In 2018, Kavanaugh denied knowing that he had received documents that were stolen from Democratic senators during the Bush administration, claiming that his interactions with Miranda were “the usual kinds of discussions that would happen.”
TRUTH
Kavanaugh’s description that his interactions were “usual” has been categorized as “not accurate”.

LIE 8
During his confirmation hearing in 2006, Kavanaugh said, “I was not involved and am not involved in the questions about the rules governing detention of combatants.”
TRUTH
One year later, it was reported that Kavanaugh had in fact counseled a group of White House lawyers regarding the administration’s decision to deny lawyers to enemy combatants. There are now at least three recorded examples of Kavanaugh participating in discussions of Bush administration detainee policy.

LIE 9
During Kavanaugh’s 2006 confirmation hearing, he lied under oath about his work on warrantless wiretapping. Kavanaugh denied involvement in a controversial Bush-era surveillance program and said that he didn’t know about it until the program was revealed by the New York Times.
TRUTH
A newly released email shows that Kavanaugh asked the Justice Department about the constitutionality of “random/constant surveillance of phone and email conversations of non-citizens who are in the United States when the purpose of the surveillance is to prevent terrorist/criminal violence.”

Republicans just do not care about decency and values.

6. His lies under oath to Congress all being federal crimes

reportable to the FBI by anybody with personal factual knowledge of them.

There are just 3 days left for such witnesses to force their information into the FBI, though. Which is what you must do to get it in.

Please see my reply (the 28th) in the "Yale Classmate... an alibi" thread.

Thank you.

11. Never broke grand jury secrecy laws; doesn't like polygraph tests

LIE 27
Kavanaugh told Sens. Feinstein and Whitehouse that he never broke grand jury secrecy laws.

TRUTH
As Feinstein has detailed, “According to a memo from the National Archives, Brett Kavanaugh instructed Hickman Ewing, a colleague and deputy independent counsel in the Starr investigation, to ‘call [Chris] Ruddy’ about matters before a grand jury, which would be illegal to disclose.


LIE 28
Kavanaugh said that polygraph tests are “not reliable.”
TRUTH
In a 2006 opinion, Kavanaugh wrote that polygraph examinations “serve law enforcement purposes.”

15. That's governed by the number of recs, which is by users, not the admins.

It is, in fact, on the Greatest Threads page, next to the other threads that have 49 recs.

[ link:https://medium.com/@demandjustice/kavanaugh-29-lies-and-counting-69ab6dee833d|medium.com/@demandjustice/kavanaugh-29-lies-and-counting-69ab6dee833d ]

or type @ in place of the at sign (ampersand hash-mark 6 4 semi-colon which is the HTML character code):

https://medium.com/@demandjustice/kavanaugh-29-lies-and-counting-69ab6dee833d

Or use %40 (ascii hex code replacement) in place of the at sign
