I’m waiting for an upcoming surprise with the Supreme court nominee.. so says Bunkerville. I’ll call this a sleeper. While the Dems are calling for tons of documents, meanwhile Rosenstein’s little Santa’s Helpers are pouring all over them. Back in July I posted
Do we all think that the Dems have rolled over for this nominee? I just read that Collins and Murkowski are meeting this week with him. Look for a September surprise. Looking back:
Rosenstein says he needs these prosecutors to “review” the documents of Kavanaugh. Why is Rosenstein taking this over? Kavanaugh was vetted when he took his seat on the D.C.court. For the last two years we kept hearing how this fellow had been looked over by the attorneys and everyone else of consequence.
First, he was involved in the Bush Florida debacle of vote counting that went to the Supremes. Great. All those documents will be reviewed. Then we have all the years of the Starr investigation.
Lets do Whitewater one more time. Then all those opinions during the Bush years.
Now that will be rich going down that memory lane looking for Kavanuagh misdeeds. After all, that’s what prosecutors do. Hmm I wonder if the prosecutors will look into his handling of Vince Foster death?
We have years with the Bush and his position. All these documents!
A protégé of Kenneth Starr, Kavanaugh played a lead role in drafting the Starr report, which urged the impeachment of President Bill Clinton. Kavanaugh also led the investigation into the suicide of Clinton aide Vincent Foster. (Yes, he was young but was willing to play the game, forget the morality of it and take the hit for the swamp.)
Kavanaugh joined Bush’s staff.Prior to his Supreme Court clerkship, Kavanaugh earned a one-year fellowship in the Office of the Solicitor General of the United States, Kenneth Starr, during which he worked on the Whitewater investigation.

There has not been one peep about any of this. Let’s see how the next couple of weeks go.
Back to the update:
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, is planning a series of tough questions when she meets with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh Tuesday, she told reporters.
Collins and Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, will meet separately with Kavanaugh this week ahead of his Sept. 4 confirmation hearing.
The two are pivotal votes in the confirmation of Kavanaugh, a conservative pick who progressives say is a threat to upholding legal abortion and Obamacare.
Collins said she has been reviewing Kavanaugh’s extensive record as a federal judge, law school lecturer, and former Bush administration aide “for weeks,” she said.
“I’ve got extensive questions on a number of issues,” Collins said.
