    The investigation of Brett Kavanaugh is NOT a “political hit” by left-wing activists, as he claimed.

    It is simply a pursuit of justice.

    However, I will say that the #MeToo movement is taking advantage of the hearing and accusations to advance their political agenda, and that is wrong. This hearing should be about finding the truth, persecuting Kavanaugh if necessary, and bringing peace to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

    Now, back to the issue of Kavanaugh himself. Just as an aside, he grossly misrepresented evidence in his testimony AND straight-up lied (A LOT), which should automatically disqualify him from being a judge, period. Here’s a definitive list of his lies/misleading statements so far:
    – When asked about “Devil’s Triangle” in his yearbook, he claimed that it is a drinking game. It is actually a sex game.
    – When asked about the term “boof” in his yearbook, he said that it refers to flatulence, not… something else….
    – When asked about “Renate Alumnius” in his yearbook, he said that it refers to his friendship with a high school girl. That girl said this was actually a sexual insinuation about promiscuity, and that lady (named Renate Schroeder Dolphin) said “I can’t begin to comprehend what goes through the minds of 17-year-old boys who write such things, but the insinuation is horrible, hurtful and simply untrue.”
    – He said that it was legal for him to drink in the summer of 1982 because the drinking age back then was 18, which is a lie because he was turning 18 the NEXT year
    – He pretended to think that his school yearbook (filled with references to sex) was relevant to deciding whether he had committed sexual assault
    – When someone asked him whether he had ever blacked out, he responded “I don’t know, have you?”
    – He said that ALL the witnesses who could corroborate Ford’s testimony denied that the assault happened, and he said this NINE TIME. This is false. Aside from Kavanaugh himself, NONE of the other witnesses actually said that the assaults didn’t happen. Instead, they just said that they either didn’t remember the party or didn’t know about it. Kavanaugh’s friend, Mark Judge, said that he has “no memory of this alleged incident,” and after Kavanaugh’s testimony, sent a SECOND letter, clarifying that he “never saw Kavanaugh act in the way described,” not that it “didn’t happen.”
    – He said that he had no connection to Yale, and only got into it through hard work. Instead, the Kavanaugh name is a legacy at Yale. His grandfather also attended the school for undergrad.

    This may seem like Kavanaugh’s opposition is picking apart his testimony, looking for small things to fault him on, but, as the The Intercept_ puts it, “Some of this may seem like parsing hairs, but the law, in large part, *is* parsing hairs. Easy questions don’t make it to the Supreme Court.”

    Also, it honestly doesn’t really matter to me whether or not Kavanaugh had a lot of beer, or if he had a connection to Yale. However, I *do* care that he lied about these things, because that reflects negatively on his integrity.

    On top of all this, 7 schools in the DC area released warnings to parents about the possibility of sexual abuse among students. Kavanaugh’s school, Georgetown, was one of these schools. An article about this is at bit.ly/2QrAbYq

    I have gone down the rabbit hole a lot, and this is a lot of writing, but if you’d like to see the video that made me angry about this issue, it’s John Oliver’s coverage of his testimony, which is on YouTube at bit.ly/2P46GeY

    As a note, this video is blocked by the school’s Chromebook extension, but you can watch it somewhere else. If you read this whole thing, thank you!! Also, I’m not sure if you can reply to posts, but if so, please do! I’d love to discuss/debate this with someone!!
