Is Brett Kavanaugh a Trojan Horse? The Kavanaughs were/are Senior Executive Service operatives. Once on the Supreme Court, he could use his own 132-page memo to support Trump’s impeachment.
“The president has disgraced his office.… He has lied to his aides. He has lied to the American people,” Brett Kavanaugh wrote in a 1998 memo to his colleagues. “I’m strongly opposed to giving [him] any ‘break’ … unless he either resigns or … issues a public apology.”
“The Kavanaugh argument in the Starr Report is highly relevant now,” says New York lawyer David R. Lurie, because it portrayed a president’s false statements and public denials as reflecting a pattern of obstructing justice. If investigators “wanted a template for charging the president with acts of obstruction meriting impeachment, they could do worse than using sections of the Starr Report drafted by Kavanaugh,” Lurie said.
The Kavanaughs were SES under the Bush administration and served with these delightful cast of neocons:
Swamp rats Rice, Portman, and Blatt endorse SES Brett Kavanaugh.
Rats stick together.
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, will introduce Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, at his confirmation hearing next week, according to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The committee announced Tuesday that joining Rice and Portman in introducing Kavanaugh will be Lisa Blatt, a liberal Supreme Court litigator.
Blatt, who clerked for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, has argued 35 cases before the Supreme Court, of which she has won 33.
Rice and Kavanaugh worked together at the White House during President George W. Bush’s administration, with Rice serving as national security adviser from 2001 to 2005. Kavanaugh worked as associate counsel and senior associate counsel from 2001 to 2003, when he became staff secretary, a position he held until 2006.
