Questions for Kavanaugh

On Twitter, Scott Dworkin opened up the floor for a discussion of this topic: What should the Democrats ask Brett Kavanaugh tomorrow? Let's consider some of the more interesting responses...
Will you promise to recuse if Trump case goes before Supreme CRT?
If he does, Trump will rescind the nomination. Won't that be fun?
Ask why he thinks Zina Bash was flashing white power signs behind him in todays's hearing.
Bash is a former clerk for Kavanaugh, and her odd hand gestures have been various interpreted. Her husband took deep offense at the theory:
We weren’t even familiar with the hateful symbol being attributed to her for the random way she rested her hand during a long hearing. Zina is Mexican on her mother’s side and Jewish on her father’s side. She was born in Mexico. Her grandparents were Holocaust survivors. We of course have nothing to do with hate groups, which aim to terrorize and demean other people — never have and never would.
I think this is the rare case when liberals have stretched conspiracy theory beyond the boundaries of plausibility. With all due apologies to the Bashes, maybe they now understand what the Republicans have put us through: Pizzagate, Qanon, the daily bullshit parade on Infowars and Breitbart...

Is turnabout fair play? I can't say, but I do know that, if you keep hitting someone, you're going to get hit back. No one can deny that Republicans created the current atmosphere of hyper-paranoia.

Let's get back to the questions:
How do you feel about a unindicted co-conspirator nominating you? How did your $200k debt magically disappear recently?
The latter is a perfectly fair question which this blog has not yet discussed, although it has received an airing in many other places. Here is one of the best articles on the topic I've encountered:
According to financial disclosures provided by the White House, the would-be Supreme Court judge reported having between $60,000 and $200,000 in debt accrued on three credit cards and a loan. The cards held between $15,000 and $50,000 in debt each, and his Thrift Savings Plan loan was between $15,000 and $50,000. In a statement, White House spokesman Raj Shah told the Post that Kavanaugh acquired the debt by purchasing Washington Nationals season tickets and playoff game tickets for himself and a “handful” of his friends, in addition to home improvements. While the figures might represent a drop in the bucket for the more wealthy members of the Supreme Court, some of whom are multi-millionaires, that was not the case for Kavanaugh. As a federal circuit court judge he made roughly $220,000 annually, plus $27,000 from lecturing at Harvard Law School last year, while his wife, who didn’t report any income for the four years prior to 2015, makes $66,000 annually as the town manager of Chevy Chase, Maryland.
Fortunately, we don’t have to worry about Brett’s financial situation or spending habits because, rather fortuitously, “the credit-card debts and loan were either paid off or fell below the reporting requirements in 2017, according to the filings, which do not require details on the nature or source of such payments.”
Who paid the debt?

Back to the questions:
Fortunately, we don’t have to worry about Brett’s financial situation or spending habits because, rather fortuitously, “the credit-card debts and loan were either paid off or fell below the reporting requirements in 2017, according to the filings, which do not require details on the nature or source of such payments.”
Ask Kavanaugh if he thinks Dems should be allowed to take 2 days to fully review his documents - make him say no
Why should Americans trust that you will be absolutely truthful and complete in your answers, given your lies before the Senate during your Appeals Court Hearing?
Will you resign if we later find documents that should have been released for this hearing, would have led to you not being appointed?

From "Trump:Ghost Hunter Believe Me - I Know Ghosts"

"What can be simpler or more accurately stated? The ghost world is forcing their most unwanted ghosts into this reality...

Our reality is very hurt by these ghosts, there are some good ones, which I am very good friends with, but these bad ones are very scary and very bad." ~D. Trump

I have always believed that Donald Trump never wrote a single sentence of prose, but this promo quotation from this book (on Amazon) is just juvenile enough to make me believe that Donald, the narrator, may have have actually owned up to his limited mental capacity.
 
Maybe Bash's hand signals were meant as a warning and not an affirmation.

It's a slippery slope to advocate that since they lie about us, we are justified in lying about them.

Dr. Kevin Barrett, the "Jews Did 9/11" conspiracy guy, famously declared that the "inside job" 9/11 conspiracy theory had been proven "eleven ways from Sunday" already, so the Truth movement was free to tolerate all kinds of crazy theories that had a chance of getting attention.

 
White Supremacist or victim of an insect bite?
That said turnabout is fair play.
Koathanger Kavanaugh can be impeached if it's found he purjured himself during his lower court hearing.
All his is moot since Democrats would need two republican Senators to defect earning Trump's ire. This ain't gonna happen unless Democrats sign a pledge to vote No as a bloc.
