As the third day of Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s hearing continues, revelations continue to come out.
On Wednesday, Jennifer Rubin, a conservative commentator, wrote a column for the Washington Post suggesting that Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is holding back a bombshell linking Kavanaugh to special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation.
Rubin noted that during late Wednesday’s hearing Harris questioned Kavanaugh about any communications he may have had about the Russia investigation with anyone at Kasowitz Benson Torres, the law firm founded by President Trump’s lawyer Marc Kasowitz.
Kavanaugh first responded by saying, “I would like to know the person you’re thinking of.”
Harris fired back by claiming that Kavanaugh knows exactly which person. “I think you’re thinking of someone and you don’t want to tell us,” Harris said, which appeared to baffle the judge.
Harris’ questions has White House aides in knots wondering what she’s leading up to, Rubin reported.
“If Harris has evidence he had an inappropriate or conflict-creating interchange with the president’s lawyer, it is critical we hear about it. If not, it is unfair to leave the inference hanging out there,” Rubin wrote before adding that Harris may be restrained “because of the cockamamie restrictions on documents that Republicans have erected.”
“It is time for Democrats to cry foul, put whatever they have out there and let Republicans justify their attempts to hide the ball,” Rubin added. “This may be a break-out moment for the junior senator from California. Harris on Tuesday showed her flair for the dramatic in raising objections over Republicans’ refusal to make hundreds of thousands of pages of documents available to the public.”
Rubin went on to note that Harris could be waiting for the perfect moment to release whatever she has on Kavanaugh and stop the Trump administration from winning after several weeks of convictions, plea deals and scandals.
“White House paranoia runs rampant (and sometimes paranoids have reason to think someone is out to get them). The president’s mental and emotional state is called into question by his own advisers,” she explained. “Given all this, one wonders if the White House was caught flat-footed on something significant, and if it is now prepared to deal with a bobble in an all-critical nomination.”
Rubin concluded, “It’s for this very reason that it’s so critical to get all his materials out in public view and get definitive questions to senators’ answers.”
