Supreme Court Pick Brett Kavanaugh was Picked to Protect President Trump
August 12, 2018
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh worked with Ken Starr in his investigation of then President Bill Clinton. The President and Republicans alike, are pushing through as fast as possible Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, fearful that Democrats take over in the mid-term elections with a blue wave, which will likely result in Democrats not approving Kavanaugh.
Republicans are so desperate to get Kavanaugh picked, that even if they don’t have all the documents needed from the Records Administration and National Archives to fully complete their investigation, they will proceed anyway.
The National Archives have stated they have to review more than 1 million pages of Kavanaugh related documents and those documents will not be ready until the end of October.
So far, more than 200,000 pages have been released and the Republicans are hoping to have Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing starting on October 1st, four weeks before the mid-term elections.
It’s no secret that Kavanaugh is a conservative. He was also a clerk for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy as was current Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. Justice Kennedy has close ties to the President of the United States.
A memo was released this past week that Kavanaugh, when he was working with Ken Starr, wrote what he called the “Overall Plan” which meant the findings of Starr’s report should be left to the next President to decide. Kavanaugh believed that an indictment should not be pursued as long as the President was in office. It is unlikely that Kavanaugh’s opinion has changed on the issue and it will be a “hot topic” during his confirmation hearing.
