Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, September 08, 2018

This is a complaint against Brett Kavanaugh (hereinafter "Kavanaugh"). The complaint is based upon evidence that Kavanaugh repeatedly committed perjury, concealed information and made false statements in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Kavanaugh committed these offenses when he testified as a nominee to serve on United States Court of Appeals and in September of 2018 when he testified in the United States Senate in relation to his nomination to become an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Kavanaugh received stolen information taken from Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee while he worked in the White House and he perjured himself while testifying about the matter in Congress.

Things were so simple when Merrick Garland was nominated by Obama.

Even if it turns out to be true, it won't change any GOP votes.

For those who thought the Democratic Senators didn't know what they were doing during the hearings, judge on a curve based on Republicans. Not only did they get Kavanaugh to perjure himself over and over again, they also planted landmines targeted at Lisa Murkowski that had nothing to due with Roe. The ground has been laid not only to bring charges against Kavanaugh if the evidence so warrants, but also impeach him from whatever court he sits upon if he's indeed convicted and likely disbarred.

Oh, by the way, guess whose court gets to adjudicate the complaint?

Merrick Garland's.

Obama made a point of not cleaning up any of the messes of the GWB era such as prosecuting torture or prosecuting bankers. That was marketed as taking the high ground and moving on.
By contrast, the Trump/GOP agenda is to undo everything Democrats have done since FDR, from NATO to Roe to NAFTA to Obamacare.

Does anybody know the rule on this?

Does this mean that the vote on Kavanaugh's nomination will be suspended until the criminal charge of perjury is adjudicated?

This is stupid but the Democrats are fully justified after Garland. Goose/gander and all that.

If Kavanaugh lied under oath it's the duty of every senator to file perjury charges on him. Not doing so would be wrong on so many levels.

It's not stupid, JEFF. If Kavanaugh has been lying and cheating his way up the judicial ladder to the Supreme Court, he needs to be exposed. From what I've read in the charges, it's long overdue.

Only if you assume this is just more political theater.

Sadly with the current crop of Repubs in office "law and order" is just a soundbite.

I'd say it means "throw the book at all the brown people and hold them to a nanometer of the actual dry-interpreted law," but prosecuting white collar crimes? "Meh...."

"This is stupid but the Democrats are fully justified after Garland. Goose/gander and all that."

Your comment says more about you than anything else. If you can't see that it is wrong for Kavanaugh to lie to Congress then your judgement is very cloudy. These accusations need to be investigated, and if true, which we all know they are, then prosecuted. It wasn't ok for Bill Clinton to lie about a BJ, then it isn't ok for his prosecutor to lie to Congress on other issues. This is perfect irony. I bet Bill Clinton is laughing his ass off right now! Rightly so.

Can a disbarred lawyer remain a judge?

McCabe is innocent until proven otherwise. He hasn't even been charged yet.

The rule according to bor.

I'm no criminal lawyer, but my understanding is that the DOJ would need to bring an indictment against Kavanaugh for that to happen, and it's never going to under this administration. Private citizens cannot institute criminal proceedings against other private citizens. The "complaint" described in this article looks formal, but in effect it is basically a referral asking DOJ to do something that they aren't going to do.

Good question, but I am just going to guess it may depend on the court. There isn't even a requirement to be a lawyer or judge to be named to the Supreme Court if I recall correctly.

But the Senators are not trying to bring charges nor is the Democratic party. If the DOJ would not do so, would Washington DC have any jurisdiction? Who would?

Just for those who are uninformed:

There are no official qualifications for becoming a Supreme Court justice. The Constitution spells out age, citizenship and residency requirements for becoming president of the United States or a member of Congress but mentions no rules for joining the nation's highest court.Oct 8, 2013

"Nowhere does it even require a law degree"

I'll take your word for it. But if a lawyer's purpose is to scam the judicial system for years without consequences, that law degree certainly comes in handy for someone like Kavanaugh.

Can you imagine if both parties had their people go after their own members who commit crimes with the same fervor they go after the opponent's, instead of doing everything they can to ignore their own criminal activity? Now that would be real swamp cleaning. Each party would have like 5 people left trying to run a country. Of course, all of the criminals would just get jobs in the media and be "journalists". The sad part is it wouldn't really bring the bar down or lower the standard of what journalism is today.

Those right wing whackos at Vox consider these charges of perjury overblown.

Sadly I tend to agree in part. This won't go anywhere. It's nothing more than an attempt to put it on the radar and use it for the Midterms.
