Supreme Court Nominee Stumbled Over Question about Mueller Probe

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was caught off guard and stumbled with his response when asked if he had discussed Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation with an attorney at President Trump’s attorney’s law firm.

The question by Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., came nearly 12 hours after the confirmation hearing began Wednesday.

“Be sure about your answer, sir,” Harris told Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh didn’t answer the question directly, asking, “Is there a person you’re talking about? I’m not sure I know everyone who works at that law firm.”

“I’m not remembering,” any conversation, he said.

Harris, a former prosecutor, shot back, “How can you not remember whether or not you had a conversation about Robert Mueller or his investigation with anyone at that law firm? This investigation has only been going on for so long.”

Kavanaugh asked if Harris was questioning him on a specific attorney.

“I think you’re thinking of someone and you don’t want to tell us,” Harris replied.

Kavanaugh never answered the questions, insisting he would need a “roster of people” who worked at the firm.
