Discussion: Kavanaugh Argued A Long List Of Impeachable Offenses For Clinton

Of course he did. Standard modern GOP behavior is that any Dem President is to be considered illegitimate and worthy of challenging with any tool or technique, real or imagined. He was also Ken Starr’s Best Boy and desirous of advancement. Guarantee that when challenged under Dem questioning, he will claim “My thinking has evolved on Presidential impeachments.” He will lie readily and shamelessly, as that’s how Swampy Elites do these things. Yale trains them that way.


Funny how the “hearts” of these “originalists” change depending on the political affiliation of the President in office.


“Looking back to the late 1990s, for example, the nation certainly would have been better off if President Clinton could have focused on Osama bin Laden without being distracted by the Paula Jones sexual harassment case and its criminal investigation offshoots,” he wrote."




May we all live to see him hoisted on his own petard.


Kennedy made a deal with a scumbag, soi-disant “president” so that this little prick could protect him, and this explains his punting on the cake and Muslim ban rulings.

It ain’t justice: it’s transactional corruption for all to see.


The picture . …

even has him looking as though he is contemplating some egg on his face —


A change of heart

Years later, Kavanaugh would argue in the Minnesota Law Review that his earlier belief “that the President should be required to shoulder the same obligations that we all carry […] seems a mistake” in retrospect.

Your change of heart is quite the defining legal precedent that should be used for all cases brought before you, isn’t it?


Speaking of real witch hunts…

Only hope is that Collins and Murkowski say no, and the Dems hold. But wait, there’s also Flake and Corker. If only.


Soft as buttah!


If lying to Congress is an impeachable offense, then he should be locking up 45 in…3…2…1…oh yeah, that’s right.


Add to that his involvement with the theft of the presidency in 2000 with Bush v Gore. But, no, he’s not partisan. Why would anyone think he’s GOP First?


Tread carefully here - while I agree the hypocrisy is obvious, this will only support Rudy’s assertion (semantics) that while a President can be impeached, he cannot be tried and prosecuted.

I personally think Trump wants to be impeached and the GOP wants to impeach him - but they all need more time to do inflict as much of their agenda as they can and do as much damage to us as they can, so this will just draw it out even longer.

Smart, savvy Democratic questioning during the confirmation process might be to touch upon this hypocrisy, but to REALLY hammer down on pressuring Trump to testify/interview with Mueller under oath, because I guarantee that whole “under oath” caveat will be a sticking point. “Sure Trump lies, but not ‘under oath’!” I can see that one coming.

I hope we ask Kavanaugh about all this and get specific: “So, you agree that sitting Presidents CAN be impeached, but you don’t think they can be prosecuted? You obviously did not object to a sitting Democratic President being investigated and being compelled to testify under oath as part of that investigation, so would you support compelling President Trump to testify under oath as part of the myriad of investigations involving him? If not, why? If not, will you recuse yourself should any of these cases end up before the SCOTUS?” Something along those lines, I think.


The guy who argued a long list of impeachable offenses for Clinton sat across from Trump and said it would be an honor to be nominated by him. Shaking my damn head. If that’s not rabid partisanship I guess I don’t know what either of those words mean.




Kinda lost me here. A little help?


Here’s to hoping Kavanaugh’s handshake is as good as Kim Jong Un’s.


Sorry, let me clarify - I don’t think Trump wants this job and if impeachment is his way out of it, that’s fine with him so long as he and his entire clan-of-thieves profit from it. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Giuliani keeps stressing basically that “impeachment is okay, but not criminal prosecution”. I also think the GOP wants him gone, but not before they get as much of their freakishly cruel agenda put into place as they can before it happens. Thus they want to draw this thing out for as long as they can, all the way until 2020 if they have to, when they’ll all line up to run against him and the ever-compliant media will swoon at their newly-found “moderate” platforms.
