Feinstein unearths another Kavanaugh lie, proving that he has no respect for the rule of law
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has a big problem with serial lying in his sworn testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee. About really serious stuff, like torture, like warrantless surveillance. Now, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) tells Politico, she’s identified another critical lie, in which Kavanaugh lied to senators about having violated secrecy laws governing grand juries during the Starr investigation of President Bill Clinton.
“According to a memo from the National Archives, Brett Kavanaugh instructed Hickman Ewing, a colleague and deputy counsel in the Starr investigation, to ‘call [Chris] Ruddy’ about matters before a grand jury, which would be illegal to disclose,” Feinstein said in a statement to POLITICO. “I asked Judge Kavanaugh in questions for the record whether he had shared ‘information learned through grand jury proceedings.’ His answer, which says that he acted ‘consistent with the law,’ conflicts with the official memo from Mr. Ewing. Disclosing grand jury information is against the law and would be troubling for any lawyer, especially one applying for a promotion to the highest court in the country.”
