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 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
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
