Twenty-three years ago I crossed swords with a younger Brett Kavanaugh in one of the weirdest and most disturbing episodes of my career as a journalist. What happened leaves me in no doubt that he lacks judicial character and is unfit to serve on the US Supreme Court for the next thirty years or more, whatever his political ideology. He was not a teenager. It related to his duties in the mid-1990s as Assistant Independent Council for the Starr investigation, then probing Bill and Hillary Clinton in the most sensitive case in the country.
To my surprise, the incident has suddenly become a second front in his nomination saga on Capitol Hill. Senator Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, has accused him of violating secrecy laws by revealing the details of a federal grand jury. “Disclosing grand jury information is against the law,” she told Politico. She said it also showed he had misled the Senate by assuring categorically that he had never leaked grand jury material to journalists. Sen Feinstein released a ‘smoking gun’ document from the:
Trump Second Choice is a Clear Winner if Kavanaugh is Elected Leaving the Deep State Without a Yale Man on the Supreme Court. Judge Pirro has already had the background checks, and has been clear and outspoken on the laws. It isn’t about the party, religion, or country, its about right an wrong, good and bad, just and unjust. Once a person has to lie to get ahead, they never really do. It may seem that they are living a wonderful life, but the lies are eating away at their souls. For Manafort, he is probably sleeping better than he has in years, and free of all the stuff he though he needed to be somebody. A lucky man to walk away from conspiring against the United States and getting to keep one of his six homes and one of his four bank accounts.
Many who are sitting in U.S. prisons that lost everything were only selling maryjane, and not conspiring against the nation. Is there something wrong with the justice system in America??? How is it that a man can conspire against a nation and walk free, and a man who can have an island full of little girls to service the elite only get 18 months in jail??? Is there justice for some, but not for all??? Do the courts favor wealth over equality??? Can a judge be bought??? Every government position should be elected by the people, then corruption has a harder time getting in. History and Kavanaugh being in the group that can never get fired does play more of a role than the sexual abuse charges.
Is it all just an illusion???
