More offensive Kavanaugh emails just leaked that Republicans didn’t want you to see

The back-and-forth battle between Senate Democrats and Republicans over the “confidentiality” of hundreds of thousands of documents relating to Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh took a surprising turn on Wednesday when Democrats made it clear that the Republicans are simply trying to block any potentially embarrassing documents from seeing the light of day.

That much was made clear when several emails were made public on Wednesday that definitely had nothing to do with national security or anything to do with the inner workings of the government.

The emails referenced a string of communications between Kavanaugh and his buddies about a boating expedition they were planning. One of Kavanaugh’s pals made a racist and sexist joke, while Kavanaugh spoke of getting “aggressive” while gambling and made sure to remind everyone to lie to their wives about where they were going.

Kavanaugh’s reply:

These emails clearly have no reason to be hidden under “committee confidentiality,” and considering that the other emails reveal a past of racist opinions, his guilt of obvious perjury, and proof that he lied to Senator Collins about his opinion on Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court Justice, the American people deserve to see ALL of the documents that the Republicans are trying to keep away from us.

If he’ll lie to his wife and lie to a Senator’s face and lie under oath to the United States Senate, why should we trust him to tell the truth about anything?
