Newly released emails show that while he was working to move through President George W. Bush’s judicial nominees in the early 2000s, Kavanaugh received confidential memos, letters, and talking points of Democratic staffers stolen by GOP Senate aide Manuel Miranda. That includes research and talking points Miranda stole from the Senate server after I had written them for the Senate Judiciary Committee as the chief counsel for nominations for the minority.

Receiving those memos and letters alone is not an impeachable offense.

No, Kavanaugh should be removed because he was repeatedly asked under oath as part of his 2004 and 2006 confirmation hearings for his position on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit about whether he had received such information from Miranda, and each time he falsely denied it.

This guy should be denied confirmation if for no other reason than that he is such a bad liar, especially for a lawyer. He is the most incompetent liar I can remember except for maybe Clapper. How do these guys stay out of jail?

It's clear to all but a fool that Kavanaugh is a blatant liar. If he took a polygraph test it would ping off the radar. I dislike the Republicans and the Democrats in equal measure so I am completely non partisan in this matter.

Good point Peter. That just may be why he thinks lie detector tests are "unreliable".

He has changed his tune about what he believed in a judicial opinion in 2016.

Here is what he ruled in 2016:

"As the Government notes, law enforcement agencies use polygraphs to test the credibility of witnesses and criminal defendants. Those agencies also use polygraphs to 'screen applicants for security clearances so that they may be deemed suitable for work in critical law enforcement, defense, and intelligence collection roles.' . . . The Government has satisfactorily explained how polygraph examinations serve law enforcement purposes." (Sack v. United States Department of Defense, 823 F.3d 687 (2016)".

opps...just the kind of guy we need on the Supreme Court.

Or in other words Kavanaugh thinks lie detector tests are reliable for you and thee, he doesn't think they are reliable for him.

It is called the arrogance of the privileged.
