Kavanaugh Insisted Clinton Be Asked Sexually Explicit Questions About an Affair, but Appears to Now Believe Trump Should Not Be Required to Speak With Mueller About an Attack on the Nation
Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, wrote a memo in 1998 insisting then-President Bill Clinton should not be given any breaks by the independent counsel investigating the Monica Lewinsky affair. Included in his memo were astonishingly explicit questions he wanted the president to be asked.
Among them, as The Washington Post reports Monday, was this: “If Monica Lewinsky says that you inserted a cigar into her vagina while you were in the Oval Office area, would she be lying?”
Kavanaugh was serving as an associate counsel for independent counsel Ken Starr.
“I am strongly opposed to giving the President any ‘break’ in the questioning regarding the details of the Lewinsky relationship,” Kavanaugh implored, unless he “resigns” or “confesses perjury,” Kavanaugh added.
“He has required the urgent attention of the courts and the Supreme Court for frivolous privilege claims — all to cover up his oral sex from an intern. He has lied to his aides. He has lied to the American people. He has tried to disgrace you and the Office with a sustained propaganda campaign that would make Nixon blush,” Kavanaugh also stated.
Last month it was revealed that a 2010 book had included some other questions Kavanaugh believed Clinton should be asked, as The Wrap detailed. Among them:
“If Monica Lewinsky says that you ejaculated into her mouth on two occasions in the Oval Office area, would she be lying?”
“If Monica Lewinsky says that on several occasions you had her give [you] oral sex, made her stop, and then ejaculated into the sink in the bathroom of the Oval Office, would she be lying?”
“If Monica Lewinsky says that you masturbated into a trashcan in your secretary’s office would she [be] lying?”
Kavanaugh now is believed to be opposed to President Trump being forced to answer any questions by special counsel Robert Mueller, despite that the Starr investigation was focused on sexual indiscretion and the Mueller investigation is focused on a foreign power attacking the United States and possibly usurping America’s electoral system.

Iran probes seized UK-flagged tanker — Britain to hold emergency meeting
ran warned Sunday that the fate of a UK-flagged tanker it seized in the Gulf depends on an investigation, as Britain prepared for an emergency security meeting on Tehran's action.
Iranian authorities impounded the Stena Impero with 23 crew members aboard off the port of Bandar Abbas after the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps seized it Friday in the highly sensitive Strait of Hormuz.
Video footage released by Iran showed the Stena Impero tanker being surrounded by speedboats before troops in balaclavas descend a rope from a helicopter onto the vessel.
In an audio recording of a radio exchange, an Iranian officer can be heard ordering the tanker to change course "immediately".
For Cubans — a day at the beach is no easy task
Cuba's constitution guarantees its people access to its beaches, but many locals are unable to enjoy the island's pristine white sands and crystal clear blue waters.
While foreign tourists flock to such paradisiacal Havana sites as Varadero, which was this year named the second most-beautiful beach in the world by American travel website TripAdvisor, Cubans are typically found elsewhere.
"Not many tourists come here," said 43-year-old Rey Gonzalez, who was enjoying a day at Guanabo, a beach east of the capital.
Guanabo's sand isn't as white and the water not quite as clear as Varadero's, but that mattered little to Gonzalez, who was there with his family.
