Republican leaders slammed House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler Wednesday after the top Democrat demanded new documents regarding recently confirmed Supreme Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
“Nadler’s request came days after a liberal lion of the high court, Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, defended Kavanaugh as a ‘very decent, very smart individual,’ and long after progressive activists have largely moved on to other matters,” reports Fox News.
“Senate Democrats spent months launching false accusations in an attempt to smear Justice Kavanaugh’s reputation and block his confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court, and now House Democrats want to follow suit with yet another fishing expedition to tarnish his good name,” Rep. Doug Collins said.

Nadler’s request included “certain presidential records related to Kavanaugh’s service in the White House from 2001 to 2006.
“As a result of this process, the Senate Judiciary Committee received only a small fraction of Justice Kavanaugh’s White House record before voting on his nomination,” Nadler wrote.
“When are we going to move on from the smear campaigns, and begin working on real, bipartisan solutions to improve the lives of the Americans we were elected to represent?” Collins added.

“Over the weekend, the district has received a complaint regarding an employee,” said Mark A. Zuzek, the superintendent of Intermediate School District #917. “The employee has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.”
“Pursuant with the data practices act, we are limited to providing additional information regarding this matter,” he added.

BOOKER EXPLODES: Cory Violates Senate Rules, LEAKS KAVANAUGH Email, Invites ‘Consequences’
Sen. Cory Booker openly defied Senate rules during Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing this week; announcing his plan to intentionally leak a prior email exchange from his time as a lawyer for President George W. Bush.
Booker exploded during Kavanaugh’s confirmation process over an email surrounding “racial profiling,” saying his office will publicly leak the message knowing it could result from a “potential ousting from the Senate.”

“When this process is finished I’m going to release the email about racial profiling. I understand that the penalty comes with potential ousting from the Senate,” said Booker.
“If Sen. Cornyn believes that I’ve violated Senate rules then I openly invite and accept the consequences,” he added.
