Yes, I am weighing in on this overly hyped story on the problematic proposal by President Trump to appoint Brett Kavanaugh to the SCOTUS. Obviously the main reason why BK will end up not on the court is all his lying about his past sex and drinking behavior, ironically some of which he may not remember, although claiming he does remember all his past may lead to him convicted of perjury.
For poor Brett Kavanaugh, his personal tragedy is that Trump nominated him for SCOTUS. If DJT had not done so, BK would probably have reasonably quietly lived out his life as a far right wing member of the Washington District Appeals Court, basically the second most important and powerful court in the US. Dr. Prof. Ford would not have come forward to drag up his ugly ancient past, much less the several other women who have done so. His 10-year old daughter would not have been publicly embarrassed, and he might even have been able to coach a few more years of school basketball teams, certainly the most important thing one can do personally. Shame on Trump for destroying his Kavanaugh's fragile life.
Of course the reason Trump destroyed the life of this worthless scumbag is that he was reportedly the only judge at his level in the system who publicly proclaimed that a president should not be investigated, that he can refuse a suppoeana, even though Nixon accepted one. BK has gone down because he would not even accept this precedent, and laughable madman President Trump really wants some sucker on the SCOTUS to help save his behind if/when it comes to pass.
But, frankly, I do not feel sorry for Brett Kavanaugh. While what is doing him in is all this sex and drinking scamdal, what makes him completely unacceptable as a SCOTUS nominee is his role in the W. Bush admin, most of the relevant papers not publicly released, is his reported role in writing memos supporting torture as an appropriate activity by the US. Nobody is talking about this, but his support of torture is the most important reason Kavanaugh should be rejected for sitting on SCOTUS.
