Jeffrey Toobin weighed in on questions by Kamala Harris yesterday, calling them ‘puzzling’ and ‘unfair’, and saying they really didn’t prove anything.
First, here’s the questioning from Harris of Kavanaugh via Fox News:
In an especially combative moment late Wednesday, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., asked Kavanaugh whether he ever had discussed Special Counsel Robert Mueller or his Russia probe with anyone at Kasowitz Benson Torres, the law firm founded by Marc Kasowitz, a former personal attorney to President Trump.
“Be sure about your answer,” Harris warned. “I’m asking you a very direct question. Yes or no?”
“I’m not sure I know everyone who works at that law firm,” Kavanaugh said. “I’m not remembering, but I’m happy to be refreshed.”
“How can you not remember whether or not you had a conversation about Robert Mueller or his investigation with anyone at that law firm?” Harris asked, visibly exasperated. “This investigation has only been going on for so long, sir, so please answer the question.”
“I’m just trying to think — do I know anyone who works at that firm?” Kavanaugh eventually replied. “I’d like to know the person you’re thinking of.”
“I think you’re thinking of someone and you don’t want to tell us,” Harris shot back, sending the room into a few seconds of near-total silence.
Utah Republican Sen. Mike Lee then interjected briefly to defend Kavanaugh, saying that “this town is full of law firms” and that they “are constantly metastasizing, they break off, they form new firms — they’re like rabbits. There’s no possible way we can expect this witness to know who populates an entire firm.”
CNN plays part of this exchange by Harris, Kavanaugh, and Lee before Toobin comments.
When you’re a Democrat and you’ve lost someone like Jeffrey Toobin, who is a hack in his own right, that just shows how far off the rails you’ve gone.
Heck, Toobin even says he felt sympathy for Mike Lee’s defense of Kavanaugh, pointing out that there are over 200 lawyers that work in this law firm and Kavanaugh can’t possibly know them all.
This just shows how conniving Democrats are right now in order to try and get Kavanaugh to slip up so they can bork his nomination.
They are really desperate.
