Im­peach Ka­vanaugh; don’t pro­mote him

The Palm Beach Post - - OPINION: THE DEBATE STARTS HERE -

Let me get this straight: then-Pres­i­dent Bill Clin­ton lies un­der oath and gets im­peached, Judge Brett Ka­vanaugh lies un­der oath and be­comes a fed­eral ap­peals court judge. Not only should his nom­i­na­tion for Supreme Court jus­tice be with­drawn, he should be im­peached.

In ad­di­tion, Ka­vanaugh has taken the hyp­o­crit­i­cal po­si­tion that a sit­ting pres­i­dent can­not be in­dicted and should be im­mune from crim­i­nal in­ves­ti­ga­tion — con­ve­niently chang­ing his stand while work­ing to pro­tect Pres­i­dent Ge­orge W. Bush, but af­ter he and In­de­pen­dent Coun­sel Ken Starr went af­ter Clin­ton.

Fi­nally, his po­si­tions on Roe v. Wade and birth con­trol are way out of the main­stream.

Ka­vanaugh may be a bril­liant ju­rist but that does not make him fit for a life­time po­si­tion to the Supreme Court.
