As Twitchy reported, Democrats like Sen. Kamala Harris are accusing Senate Republicans of “withholding vital documents” from Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s career. “What do they have to hide?” Harris asks, knowing full well she’s going to oppose Kavanaugh’s confirmation regardless.
While Democrats wait for those vital documents to be produced, the media is already doing some of the Democrats’ dirty work by trying to dig up dirt on Kavanaugh through his wife’s emails sent as a local town manager.

It’s all above-board, though, because as a town manager she’s a public official, so her emails are fair game.
The New York Times and the Associated Press have filed public-records requests for emails sent by the wife of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh during her tenure as a local town manager.
The Maryland public-records request, obtained by the conservative political-advocacy group America Rising Squared, specifically seeks emails sent or received by Ashley Kavanaugh containing politically charged words such as “gun,” “abortion,” and “gay,” among others.
Mrs. Kavanaugh, who previously served as the personal secretary to George W. Bush, is currently the Chevy Chase, Md. Section 5 town manager.
Again, these aren’t even the documents the Democrats are looking to be released; these are mainstream media outlets trying to dig up controversial emails from Kavanaugh’s wife.
Did she get nominated too? I must have missed that.

Remember when the @nytimes did this to this to the families of RBG, Sotomayor, and Kagan? 🙃

Yeah, good times.
This is insane. I dont recall ANY past SCOTUS hearings or such ever going this far, or into the nominee's wife's info.
This is obscene and a disgusting display of biased partisanship.

For the left, any means they use (no matter how despicable) are always justified by any ends they hope for, wish for and desire. This gives them cover to stoop to infinite depths.

Why doesn't the New York Times change it's name to represent what it really has become, the Democrat Party Times? It's no longer a journalistic news organization. Rather it has become a political smear sheet. Don't support it.

Dear journalists, Who, What, When, Where, Why & How & just the facts. Makes for award winning writing. Try it.

Spilling this over to his wife, by extension his daughters, looks like a strategy to get him to withdraw his name. This is disgusting.

Part desperation, but mostly having Conservative judges think twice about accepting appointments to SCOTUS in the future.. https://t.co/0aYFMFHbnr

So now another person’s thoughts, opinions and comments make an innocent person guilty, even if they didn’t say anything wrong?

Is there a term that describes behavior of the press more egregious than muckraking?

One of the daughters was seen picking her nose. Disqualifying. The more we politicize the selection process the less the decisions will be trusted. Stop being dolts
