I think this morning we need a little thread about Brett Kavanaugh and gambling. What do you think? Wanna join me for a quick game?

<THREAD>
1) It’s starts with the massive debt Kavanaugh accrued by allegedly buying baseball tickets. He carried $60,000 to $200,000 of debt on credit cards which he SAYS was for baseball tickets. slate.com/news-and-polit…
2) "Kavanaugh would have had to buy nine top-tier season tickets to reach the LOWER limit of the debt that the White House says he accrued because of baseball."

Hmmmmm. Very interesting.
3) What now seems much more likely is that Kavanaugh has a bit of a gambling problem. Take a peek at this exchange from one of his emails.
4) Here is the link for that email exchange, I particularly like the parts where Kavanaugh reminds everyone to be vigilant about confidentiality, including spouses. What is he needing to hide from wifey? judiciary.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/…
5) So we have a question of debt which may be due to gambling but is being covered up by the White House with a stupid lie about baseball tickets. Beyond that we have a question about how Kavanaugh got out of that debt…seemingly overnight…just in time for SCOTUS nomination.
6) Who paid down that debt? He could not have paid it down so quickly on his own, with the salaries he and his wife pull in. Nope, it just doesn’t add up unless someone stepped out of the shadows and paid off Kavanaugh’s debt.

7) You know, I’m not opposed to the boys contracting a boat for a weekend and having some gambling fun. And if Kavanaugh feels the need to hide it from his wife, who am I to judge. But the American people need to know who paid off his debt.
8) The source of the funds must be made public to avoid any appearance of impropriety. We can’t have a SCOTUS nominee who has this hanging over his head. He would be ripe for blackmail. Hell! The guy already is ripe for impeachment if he gets on the bench!
9) To quote @SenatorLeahy , “I may have been born at night, but I wasn’t born last night.”. I don't believe Kavanaugh built $200,000 in debt for love of baseball. If he racked up that much debt with two young girls to raise and educate, his judgement is in question.
10) If it’s a lie and Kavanaugh racked up that debt through gambling, that’s yet another red flag.
11) Finally, there is the question of who suddenly paid off Kavanaugh’s debts. And it appears that this is not the first time someone has suddenly paid off his debts. It is said to have happened before his 2006 nomination for his present judicial bench.
12) Look, I'm not a DC insider, I'm an ordinary American. If I am learning this about Kavanaugh, everyone will learn soon enough. Whoever chose Kavanaugh was obviously not playing with a full deck. This nomination must be pulled or SCOTUS will become a failing house of cards.
