Newly released documents show that as White House Counsel for President George W. Bush, Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh pushed for a $500,000 cap on the amount of compensation victims of the deadly September 11, 2001 terrorist attack could receive from the federal government.
This startling revelation reported by the New York Daily News shows that soon after the 9/11 attacks, while the entire country was very sympathetic to the victims of the terrorist attack and their families, Kavanaugh was already scheming on ways to stiff them of their much needed federal compensation funds. This is yet another issue that should outrightly disqualify Kavanaugh from the U.S. Supreme Court. Simply put, if Kavanaugh treated victims of 9/11 with such callous disregard, at a time when all Americans agreed they deserved a lot of federal assistance, there is no reason to expect that he will be compassionate as a Supreme Court Justice.
Bottom line Dems need to highlight Kavanaugh’s cruelty towards 9/11 victims and their families when making their case against his confirmation. Alaskans and Mainers must make sure Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski are made aware of this.
