A year ago, Democrats threw one of the biggest fits in political history over the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
They clearly haven’t gotten over it, because they are coming after him again.
The Daily Caller reports:
House Democrats Are Coming For Brett Kavanaugh
Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee asked the National Archives Tuesday to release documents from Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s service in the George W. Bush White House.
The request tracks Democratic promises to scrutinize Kavanaugh even after his confirmation to the Supreme Court.
“The Senate Judiciary Committee received only a small fraction of Justice Kavanaugh’s White House records before voting on his nomination,” Democratic Reps. Jerry Nadler of California and Henry Johnson of Georgia wrote in a letter to the Archives. Nadler chairs the Judiciary Committee, while Johnson leads a subcommittee that oversees the federal bench.
“Now and as always, the Court’s fidelity to the principles of equal and impartial justice, as well as the public’s faith in the integrity of the judiciary, are foundational to maintaining the rule of law,” the pair wrote elsewhere.
This goes beyond being a sore loser. It crosses the line into harassment, and that’s exactly what Republicans are calling it.

Nadler slammed for ‘harassment’ after fresh Kavanaugh doc requests
The top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday accused the panel’s Democratic chairman, Rep. Jerry Nadler, of “harassment” and unethical conduct, after Nadler moved to seek records from Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s time in the George W. Bush administration.
Nadler’s request came days after a liberal lion of the high court, Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, defended Kavanaugh as a “very decent, very smart individual,” and long after progressive activists have largely moved on to other matters.
Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., said in a statement that Nadler’s request is so “far outside the scope of judicial ethics, it’s harassment.”
“Senate Democrats spent months launching false accusations in an attempt to smear Justice Kavanaugh’s reputation and block his confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court, and now House Democrats want to follow suit with yet another fishing expedition to tarnish his good name,” Collins said.
They simply cannot accept the fact that they lost.
