Kavanaugh Must No Longer Be a Nominee for the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh Has Absolutely No Respect for Women. Enough is Enough!

Our nation deserves an honest justice who doesn’t lie, especially when women’s lives are at stake!

Take Action:  Last week’s hearings on Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, amounted to a sham. Not only have Republicans blocked thousands of documents about Kavanaugh, they are rushing the process to get him confirmed despite explosive information about the nominee. Democrats revealed that Kavanaugh made perjured statements in denying his use of confidential memos, letters and talking points stolen from Democrats. This occurred during the George W. Bush administration when Kavanaugh was vetting controversial judicial nominees that Democrats fiercely opposed. Under questioning by Democrats last week, Kavanaugh replied with the absurd claim that he thought the information was not confidential.

Newly released emails show that the stolen confidential documents were taken by a Republican Senate aide, Manuel Miranda, and delivered to Kavanaugh. Later during Senate Judiciary Committee hearings in 2004 and 2006 when Kavanaugh was being considered for a seat on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, Kavanaugh repeatedly lied under oath about receiving and using the stolen information.

For lying multiple times to the Senate, Kavanaugh should not only be dismissed as the nominee being considered for a seat on the Supreme Court, but the documented acts of perjury should cause him to be removed from his current judgeship on the Appeals Court. Brett Kavanaugh should do the honorable thing and withdraw his name from consideration.

The Senate Judiciary Committee’s rushed and corrupted process shows that the Republicans want their man on the Court so badly that they are hiding documents and are willing to ignore criminal law so that this individual who has committed perjury may sit on the Supreme Court. Contact your Senators!

Your Message: If your Senator is supporting or “undecided” about Kavanaugh, contact them as a constituent: “I believe that Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, must not be confirmed. He has lied multiple times to the Senate and has shown himself to be unqualified for such a critically important position. The fact that Kavanaugh, as a counsel in the George W. Bush White House, received stolen confidential information, used it to promote controversial judicial nominees and then later lied to Senate Judiciary Committee members about these documents should not only disqualify him from the High Court, but he should be removed from his current DC appeals court judgeship.”

“Further, I believe that the documents which are being blocked by the Republicans may reveal even more misdeeds on the part of the nominee. Brett Kavanaugh should do the honorable thing and withdraw his name from consideration. I ask you to advocate for the nominee’s withdrawal and for the Senate Judiciary Committee to halt these rushed and sham proceedings to place an unqualified person on the High Court.”

If your Senator is opposing Kavanaugh, thank them and then tweet and broadcast your outrage:

Sample Social Media: Perhaps repeatedly lying to the American people should disqualify you from serving on our nation’s highest court. Just a thought. #StopKavanaugh @SenatorCollins

If you are caught repeatedly lying to the American people while under oath, you shouldn’t be granted a lifetime appointment to our nation’s highest court. #StopKavanaugh @SenatorCollins

Brett Kavanaugh: ✅ Lied under oath ✅ Lied to the American people ✅ Lied to sitting senators – are you listening, @SenatorCollins?

And Republicans are still trying to cram his confirmation through the Senate. NOT ON OUR WATCH. #StopKavanaugh
