During yesterday’s Senate Judiciary Committee questioning of Brett Kavanaugh, Dem Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse showed a particular obsession with the SCOTUS nominee’s high school yearbook:

During comments today ahead of the committee’s vote on forwarding the Kavanaugh nomination to the full Senate, Sen. Whitehouse wasn’t finished analyzing and decrypting what was written in the yearbook:
"I don't believe 'boof' is flatulence." — Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse

Yeah, a U.S. senator actually said that. But wait, there’s more!
Sen. Whitehouse right now on #Kavanaugh, circling back on his questions about his yearbook yesterday: "I don't believe boofed is flatulence. I don't believe the devil's triangle is a drinking game. I don't believe calling yourself a girl's alumnus is being her friend."

Whitehouse also did a deep dive into the calendar from 1982 that Kavanaugh turned over to the committee:
.@SenWhitehouse: “This may, may, be powerful corroborating evidence that the assault happened, that it happened that day and that it happened in that place, but with no FBI investigation, we can’t tell.” pic.twitter.com/wrpd6wj0K1

He was really trying:
This whitehouse dem is a joke. Couldn’t find any evidence that Kavanaugh is guilty. So they pick apart his high school yearbook? Give me a break. How insulting. Then they try and pick apart this mans calendar. Omg. I can’t stand this corruption from the left
