Brett Kavanaugh Has Now Lied at Least 4 Times Under Oath During His Confirmation Hearings

Newly released emails show Brett Kavanaugh has misled the Senate Judiciary Committee at least four times during his confirmation hearings.


Democrats have complained that the confirmation process for the Supreme Court nominee were tainted because barely any of Kavanaugh’s records have been released from his time in the Bush White House, reported The Daily Beast.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) released emails that show Kavanaugh made misleading or false statements about his involvement in the nomination of Judge William Pryor in 2006, the “Memogate” scandal in 2003 and the Bush administration’s warrantless wiretapping program.

He also gave conflicting statements about his views on Roe v. Wade as settled law.

The newly released emails also contradict Trump administration claims that Kavanaugh’s documents cannot be released due to national security or executive privilege concerns.
