Nobody knows more about the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation fight than Mollie Hemingway, co-author of “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court.” Now, a new book by two New York Times reporters tries to throw more dirt at Kavanaugh — and Hemingway has taken the lead in debunking its new, flimsy charges. Mollie talks through it all, plus looks at the agenda behind the brutal attacks on Kavanaugh, and predicts what could happen if President Trump has to fill another Court vacancy.

    Great interview, love Molly.

    Brett Kavanaugh was the obvious choice for any republican president for a seat on the Supreme court. His nomination was probably the most conventional thing that Trump has done in his presidency. Kavanaugh has gone through a half dozen (or more) FBI background investigations connected to his federal employment. I doubt there is anything that could be legitimately claimed about Brett Kavanaugh that the FBI didn’t already know. Are the democrats suddenly alleging that there is rampant incompetence at the FBI? That they could miss so many crimes so many times?

    The reaction to his nomination just proves that the democrats would oppose any nomination.

    A superb interview. Thank goodness we have Mollie Hemingway on the case! Mollie carefully demolished the new book on Kavanaugh, not with a sledgehammer but with a carefully wielded stiletto.

    One thing that has truly helped Brett Kavanaugh is six women: Mollie, her co-author Carrie Severino, Deputy Maricopa County Rachel Mitchell who cross-examined Christie Blassey Ford, and Kavanaugh’s wife and two daughters, who were forced to grow up far too early.

    I know its old news at this point, but would someone be interested in doing a book on the Wisconsin John Doe Investigations?

    It kinda seems like a test run of the Russia Gate Hysteria. Or is that just me?

    Molly’s money quote:

    “Seeing people who say they find the person who won (ie: the 2016 election/Trump) to be violating norms and procedures, are actually the ones who are engaging in some pretty serious violations of norms and procedures.”

    Someone should. Drew lives in Wisconsin, and has a sharp pen. I nominate him.

    You have to call him out, @drewinwisconsin. But he’s hardly our only Wisconsinite here.
