Reid on Kavanaugh


Senator Harry Reid is an irresponsible mudslinger. Here’s what he has just been reported to have said today about Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination:

“Here’s a person who has been involved in a lot of things dealing with torture, and his experience is nonexistent, basically — 41-years old. I’m not sure he’s ever been in a courtroom.”

In fact, I am reliably informed that Kavanaugh had zero involvement in Administration policy on detainees. And Kavanaugh has, among other things, argued cases in the Supreme Court and court of appeals.
