A group fighting for Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation received a $15.9M donation from a single mystery donor.

The Judicial Crisis Network, a conservative dark money group that led the fight to get Brett Kavanaugh instated on the Supreme Court, received nearly $16 million from a single mystery donor, according to Jacobin Magazine.

  • IRS documents obtained by the publication in June showed that the group received roughly $30 million in donations between July 2018 and June 2019, with $15.9 million coming from a single donor.
  • Additionally, the publication reported that “the group received five other seven-figure donations from anonymous sources.”
  • JCN shelved out millions of dollars to finance a media campaign in support of Kavanaugh, paying more than $12 million to a media buying firm during that tax year.
  • The group does not share its donors’ identities, and JCN is closely linked with Trump’s top judicial adviser Leonard Leo. JCN paid nearly $1.2 million to BH Group LLC, which is a company connected to Leo.
