New reasons to question Brett Kavanaugh’s credibility emerge | MSNBC
The trouble, of course, is that the list of false assertions made by the Republican judge is already quite lengthy. Making matters worse, it’s not done. NBC News reported overnight:
In the days leading up to a public allegation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh exposed himself to a college classmate, the judge and his team were communicating behind the scenes with friends to refute the claim, according to text messages obtained by NBC News.
The texts between Berchem and Karen Yarasavage, both friends of Kavanaugh, suggest that the nominee was personally talking with former classmates about Ramirez’s story in advance of the New Yorker article that made her allegation public. In one message, Yarasavage said Kavanaugh asked her to go on the record in his defense. Two other messages show communication between Kavanaugh’s team and former classmates in advance of the story.
During his sworn testimony, Kavanaugh was asked by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) when he first learned of Ramirez’s allegation. The judge replied that he heard about the claim in the Sept. 23 article in The New Yorker.
So many lies, so little time..
