Even Brett Kavanaugh’s drinking buddies say that he lied under oath when he claimed that he never drank to the point of forgetting what he was doing. They swear that they saw him do just that on multiple occasions.
The point is that this isn’t about what Kavanaugh did when he was younger. This is about him lying his way onto the Supreme Court. And if he lies about this, what else is he willing to lie about?
Lindsey Graham said that Democrats attempts to question Kavanaugh were “the most despicable thing I have seen in my time in politics”. Seriously? More despicable than what the Republicans did to Bill Clinton (something in which Kavanaugh was deeply involved)? Or what they did to Merrick Garland? More despicable than starting a war against Iraq? Or torture (in which Kavanaugh was also involved)? Or warrantless spying on Americans (yet another thing in which Kavanaugh was involved)?
Last week, the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh failed. If he is nonetheless confirmed, it is a gross failure of the American system of government.
