Senate Judiciary Committee hearings are scheduled for Sept. 4 to decide the conformation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh for a lifetime appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court. Committee member Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) tweeted Aug. 14 a reminder that Republicans are still blocking the release of records “from several years that Kavanaugh worked in the White House. Americans deserve to see those documents.” NCLR’s Shannon Minter notes that Kavanaugh is so “hyper-partisan,” the American Bar Association “downgraded Kavanaugh’s ranking based on interviews with more than 90 fellow judges and colleagues who described him as ‘less than adequate,’ ‘sanctimonious,’ ‘insulated,’ and ‘immovable and very stubborn.’” HuffPo’s Michelangelo Signorile argues that Kavanaugh “was there for all of it” when President George W. Bush pushed for a federal constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. Meanwhile, an Aug. 15, 1998 memo released to the Washington Post by the National Archive under the Freedom of Information Act, shows Kavanugh’s raunchy state of mind serving as associate counsel for independent counsel Ken Starr, who was investigating President Bill Clinton’s sexual relationship with intern Monica Lewinsky. Kavanaugh proposed explicit questions such as: “If Monica Lewinsky says that you inserted a cigar into her vagina while you were in the Oval Office area, would she be lying?” “If Monica Lewinksy says that she gave you oral sex on nine occasions in the Oval Office area, would she by lying?” “If Monica Lewinksy says that on several occasions you had her give oral sex, made her stop, and then ejaculated into the sink in the bathroom off the Oval Office, would she be lying?” “If Monica Lewinsky says that you masturbated into a trashcan in your secretary’s office, would she be lying?” Reminder: credible sexual harassment allegations did not prevent confirmation of Clarence Thomas to the high court.
