Pundits have mentioned Kavanaugh has a long paper trail along with his partisan history. This morning Dick Durbin let’s us know that he sent a letter in 2007 to Kavanaugh asking him to explain inaccurate and misleading testimony give in May of 2006 to the Senate Judiciary Committee on the the topic of torture. The letter is in the tweet below and summarized:
Durbin asks him what did Kavanaugh know about Mr Hayne’s (Bush WH Lawyer up for Court of Appeals) role in crafting the Administration’s detention and interrogation policies.
Kavanaugh says he wasn’t involved.
And yet in a WP article he’s quoted as having a heated discussion in the White House in 2002.
Dick Durbin will be grilling Kavanaugh for sure. Because apparently he lied to the Senate.
