Dem Senators have made a very compelling case in the ongoing Kavanaugh confirmation hearings as to why he is not fit for a lifetime appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court.
However there is a bombshell revelation out there that is yet to make the mainstream media rounds suggesting that a server containing Kavanaugh’s emails related to the U.S. Attorney scandal during George W. Bush’s administration was hacked by the Russians(see Jennifer Cohn’s thread below)

This has profound implications because in addition to the compelling case Senate Dems have already made against Kavanaugh’s confirmation, it now appears that he is also TrumpRussia-compromised–Russians have Kompromat on him.
It is no secret that the ongoing Mueller probe will likely raise legal issues (eg Trump subpoena) that the U.S. Supreme Court, possibly with Kavanaugh on the bench, will have to settle. One of the biggest complaints raised by Senate Dems against Kavanaugh is that there is an appearance that President Trump nominated him to the highest court for the express purpose of shielding the President in case the Mueller probe turns up evidence implicating him(Trump) in some criminal conduct—the so-called “Booker Theory” named after Senator Corey Booker(D-NJ). In other words, the conflict of interest envisioned by the Booker Theory relates to Kavanaugh protecting Trump as a return favor for his nomination.
The new bombshell revelation however that Kavanaugh’s own emails are in the hands of the Russians takes the conflict of interest questions to a whole new level. Because Russians are in possession of his emails, which may contain some damaging/compromising details, Kavanaugh may be inclined to quash the Mueller investigation not just for Trump’s sake but for himself too–a slam-dunk disqualifier for any Judge, let alone one about to be accorded a lifetime tenure at the nation’s highest court.
Bottom line given these new revelations that Kavanaugh’s emails are in the hands of the Russians, Dems must insist that he must recuse himself from any TrumpRussia issues or at least move to halt the confirmation hearings until the email issue is sorted out. How this bombshell revelation about Kavanaugh’s emails has not caught the attention of the mainstream media, Yours Truly will never understand. Hapless MSM folks, hapless indeed!!
