Over the weekend, despite being one of the more controversial nominees in modern history, Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed by the GOP majority Senate to the Supreme Court of the United States.
In addition to multiple sexual abuse allegations and Kavanaugh’s angry defense at the Senate Judiciary committee that left many concerned that he doesn’t have the temperament for such a position, there is the whole issue of Kavanaugh’s involvement in perjury from a hacking scandal from his days working in the George W. Bush White House.
Yahoo reports, “New details have emerged about potentially thousands of Brett Kavanaugh’s White House emails and other records related to the Senate hacking scandal from early in the George W. Bush administration and other controversial subjects that have not been disclosed to the Senate, according to Democratic senators on the Judiciary Committee.
The undisclosed documents, which date from Kavanaugh’s time in the Bush White House, are set to be produced in coming weeks as a result of two Freedom of Information Act lawsuits, one pursued by Democratic senators on the Judiciary Committee and another by an outside privacy group, the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC). Release of the documents is still subject to White House approval and other consultations.”
“This highlights how little we know about Judge Kavanaugh’s record,” Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., said. “More than 90 percent of his White House records remain hidden. The fact that he appears to have had so many conversations about a topic that he denied having involvement with, under oath, raises even more questions,” Leahy continued.
