Ex-Senate Aide: Kavanaugh Has Lied Each Time He Has Testified Under Oath


Lisa Graves said Brett Kavanaugh lied in 2004 and 2006, as well as this year before Senate Judiciary Committee.

During an interview with Democracy Now! on Monday, Lisa Graves — who is the former chief counsel for nominations for the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and was deputy assistant attorney general in the Department of Justice — said Brett Kavanaugh has lied to the Senate every time he has testified.

> “He, I believe, lied in his earlier testimony, in 2004, in 2006 and earlier this month, about a number of matters, including his role in receiving stolen confidential information, information that was stolen from the United States Senate about judicial nominations, and lying about his role in those judicial nominations. I think that this man, Brett Kavanaugh, tells lies big and small. He is unfit for the bench. He is certainly unfit for the United States Supreme Court. And I’ve called for him to be impeached—not promoted, but actually impeached.”

Graves added that there is “certainly ample evidence that Brett Kavanaugh has been untruthful to the Senate, that he’s lied under oath, that he’s misled the Senate.”

> “Every single time he’s testified, he has testified falsely, in my view. His statements have been contradicted by evidence in 2004, 2006, earlier this month in 2018 and just this past week.”
