The Kavanaugh Scandal Goes Beyond Sex & Must Be Investigated

Thom plus logo While all the attention on the possibility of impeaching justice beer bong Kavanaugh is focused on his alleged sexual behavior, the real scandal is that the Republicans refused to release years of paperwork on his participation, when he was inside the Bush administration, with regard to torture and other war crimes. We also do not know if there was any relationship between the publicity surrounding Justice Kennedy's son working with Donald Trump at Deutsche Bank, and Justice Kennedy's sudden departure from the bench, Making space for Kavanaugh. Nor do we know who paid off Kavanaugh's hundreds of thousands of dollars in credit card and other debt just before his elevation to the Supreme Court.

These are serious issues of corruption that go way beyond his behavior in school. Congress needs to initiate an investigation into these cover up attempts by the GOP at the same time they look into how extensively he lied to Congress about his school years' behavior. The Supreme Court has become one of the most powerful institutions in the world, and having one of the seven members serve under a cloud of corruption and misbehavior is destructive to the trust in government that is so necessary for a functioning democracy.

Tinhip... that all may well be... and, I agree bringing stuff up decades old provides some with justification for their view

However, seems to me that Trump appoints nepotistically without compunction... only them that will be of influence and alignment with his longer term views

A judge that could be helpful in the future

That... for some reason... has a position FOR LIFE

From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."

From Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
