Brett Kavanaugh: Perjury?

When Brett Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee during 2004 confirmation hearings on his DC Circuit Court nomination, he said, under oath, that he had not seen confidential memos regarding the judicial nomination of William Pryor that were pilfered from Democratic senators by GOP staffer Manuel Miranda, and was not involved in Bush White House discussions about the Pryor nomination. Guess what was in the “committee confidential” emails released at 3AM on Thursday? An email about the Pryor nomination.

Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation stalled, and he testified before the Judiciary Committee again in 2006.

If Mr. Mr. Kavanaugh lied under oath during his previous confirmation hearings, twice, he should not be confirmed for the Supreme Court but removed from the appellate court bench, then indicted for perjury and, if found guilty of that felony, disbarred.
