GOP wants a vote on #Kavanaugh for #SCOTUS before documents are released. Many asking #WhatAreTheyHiding?

He was with G.W. Bush, 2000-2006.

Thought someone should do a thread of all controversies during that time that they might be hiding. Continued⤵…
This thread ended up being longer than I anticipated, turns out the George W. Bush admin had more than a few controversies—I expect I missed a few things.

If you notice something big I missed, comment with reputable news article, and I’ll quote tweet your comment onto the thread
The 2000 FL Vote recount (Florida law required recount for a razor close election, Bush legal team argued to end it, eventually successfully before the #SCOTUS … he was on the Bush legal team).…
The 9/11 Terrorist Attacks, and the Bush Administration’s responses.…
September 11th Victim Compensation Fund (criticized because it valued victims lives based on their employment).…
The War in Iraq, engaged in false pretenses, including lies to the UN and the American people.…
The Torture Memos—allowing interrogators to break US law in torturing suspects.

Looks like Kavanaugh may have lied to Congress in a previous confirmation hearing about involvement in that one.…
The NSA’s Warrantless Wiretapping of American Citizens.

He may have lied to Congress about that one too.…
The political firings of U.S. Attorneys.…
The Federal Marriage Amendment—attempting to insert LGBTQ discrimination into the Constitution.…
Hurricane Katrina (1833 died, bungled response).

The Bush administration’s controversial use of legislative signing statements (signing the law, but in so doing, saying they won’t enforce it).…
Terri Schaivo (a woman in a persistent vegetative state: the Bush White House intervened to try to prevent her legal guardian from removing her feeding tube, as per her wishes).…
In the end, I don’t know #WhatAreTheyHiding. Maybe it’s evidence of #Kavanaugh lying to Congress. Maybe it’s about another controversy.

Whatever it is, the American people—and the Senators voting on his lifetime appointment to #SCOTUS—have a right to know…
