1. Grassley claimed the republicans read them all!

But came in this morning looking like they got 8 hours of sleep. Frauds, every one of them.

6. Smh, why did they (dems) even show up to the hearings?

The whole thing was rigged and they have the votes anyway. On Morning Joe, Scarborough said they should not show and just hold a press conference, put the documents online and say exactly what the Repubs did.

9. They're no doubt mostly Bush-era documents.

In other words, a veritable crime scene.

No wonder they're so desperate to hide them.

12. Yes, his time in the WH. Plus, though, who knows

from other years? He's an extremist of bad character. Interesting how often those go together.

13. My guess is that a lot of those show Kavanagh rationalizing any and every Bush brain fart

Up to and including perpetuating himself in power by way of a continuity-of-government declaration had Ken Blackwell's heist in ohio not worked in '04.

It would, of course, have basically been third world-style martial law. But Bush - unlike Cheeto - was a stickler about having a patina of legality on every unconstitutional "signing statement" of his (I'm not sure which is worse).

All those legal contortions must have kept Kavanagh, Yoo, Addington, and the rest of them very busy.

14. Yes. That one meeting the WaPo reported back in 2009

supposedly had Kavanaugh saying that his "mentor" Justice Kennedy would not go along with some extremely unconstitutional action being considered, forget which at the moment. So, if true, and it very likely is, these guys were deep into deciding on what deeds they could get away with at that point, and they trusted Kavanaugh enough to involve him in discussions they had to keep very quiet.

No surprise. Anyone who was an enthusiastic predator in the Ken Starr swiftboating "investigation" is de facto proven to be of extremely bad character, a proper fit for that group, and the very opposite of the judicial temperament every judge must have, or else .

10. Like I have said because of the BS the Repugnants have been playing with stacking SCOTUS I think

the only remedy will be to increase the number of justices once we regain the majority as well as the Whitehouse and I am not talking about packing the new slots with partisan hacks like the Repugnants have been packing it with but rather with actual moderate justices.
