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

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."
Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
