You know this had to hurt the editors at Vox: they consulted four legal scholars regarding Democrats’ perjury charges against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and had to admit: it’s probably not perjury. You can stop beating that drum now, Sen. Leahy.

This, of course, undercuts all those liberal fantasies of Kavanaugh being confirmed and then immediately impeached.

Dylan Matthews writes:

Senate Democrats obviously don’t care much for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who stands poised to overturn Roe v. Wade, limit affirmative action, weaken environmental regulations, and otherwise undermine liberal priorities once confirmed. But as his confirmation hearings progress and more documents from his time serving in the Bush White House emerge, Senate Democrats are now leveling a more serious charge: perjury.

But do Kavanaugh’s inaccurate statements rise to the level of perjury? Did he commit a federal crime? I put the question to several legal scholars, and the reply I received was generally: “no.”

That must have hurt to write. We wonder how many of Vox’s liberal followers are going to retweet this one?
