Leahy says Kavanaugh misled Senate already

Mr. KAVANAUGH: Senator, I did not—I was not involved and am not involved in the questions about the rules governing detention of combatants or—and so I do not have the involvement with that. And with respect to Mr. Haynes’s nomination, I’ve—I know Jim Haynes, but it was not one of the nominations that I’ve handled.).

[5](link is external) Email for Brett Kavanaugh from Harriet Miers, Fw: let me know when you get this…thx (June 12, 2004). Vermont Business Magazine Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) Thursday asked Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) to join a request for Judge Kavanaugh’s Staff Secretary records and to publicly release the documents now. Feinstein is the Judiciary Committee’s Ranking Member, and Leahy and Durbin are also senior members of the committee. The senators emphasize the fact that documents that are currently “committee confidential” contain information indicating that Kavanaugh misled the Senate during his 2006 nomination hearing.They write, “We firmly believe that Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination cannot be considered unless these documents are available, including to the public and the Senate as a whole.” The senators strongly urged Chairman Grassley to support their “request for Judge Kavanaugh’s Staff Secretary records and to publicly release documents from Judge Kavanaugh’s time in the White House in the same manner as was done for all previous Supreme Court nominees. The truth should not be hidden from the Senate or the American people.”The letter is below.August 16, 2018The Honorable Charles E. GrassleyChairmanCommittee on the JudiciaryUnited States SenateWashington, D.C. 20510Dear Chairman Grassley:We have repeatedly expressed our serious concerns about the unprecedented lack of transparency and partisan process that is being used to hide Brett Kavanaugh’s record from the Senate Judiciary Committee, the Senate as a whole, and the American people.  Although Judge Kavanaugh amassed a substantial record during his five years in the Bush White House, to date, less than 3% of his record has been made available to the Committee, and 98.4% of his record is being withheld from the full Senate and the public.  By comparison, for Elena Kagan’s nomination, 99% of her White House records were made available to Congress and the public.We have stated all along that the unprecedented, partisan process being used for Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination is a disservice to the Senate and to the American people.  Now, we are seeing firsthand the problems that result from attempts to hide Judge Kavanaugh’s record.  In particular, from the limited set of documents available, we have already seen records that call into serious question whether Judge Kavanaugh was truthful about his involvement in the Bush Administration’s post-9/11 terrorism policies when he testified before this Committee during his 2006 nomination hearing. As you know, in 2006, Judge Kavanaugh told the Committee under oath that he was “not aware of any issues” regarding “the legal justifications or the policies relating to the treatment of detainees”;[1](link is external) was “not involved in the questions about the rules governing detention of combatants”[2](link is external); had nothing to do with issues related to rendition;[3](link is external) and was unaware of, and saw no documents related to, the warrantless wiretapping program conducted without congressional authorization.[4](link is external)However, at least two documents that are publicly available on the Bush Library website from Judge Kavanaugh’s time as Staff Secretary suggest that he was involved in issues related to torture and rendition after 9/11.  In one, just days after the existence of the Office of Legal Counsel “torture memos” was publicly revealed, then-Deputy White House Chief of Staff Harriet Miers forwarded to Judge Kavanaugh a set of talking points addressing the memos and U.S. torture policy.[5](link is external)  The forwarded email makes clear that then-Deputy National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley had personally asked for Judge Kavanaugh’s review.  Similarly, another email shows that Judge Kavanaugh was included on an email chain circulating talking points on rendition and interrogation.[6](link is external)  These emails and talking points demonstrate why we need access to Judge Kavanaugh’s full record as Staff Secretary.In addition, documents that have been produced to the Committee as part of the partisan process that you have brokered with Bill Burck further undercut Judge Kavanaugh’s blanket assertions that he had no involvement in or knowledge of post-9/11 terrorism policies.  These documents are currently being withheld from the public at your insistence, but they shed additional light on Judge Kavanaugh’s involvement in these matters and are needed to question him in a public hearing.After all, Judge Kavanaugh was an Associate White House Counsel on 9/11.  Over the next several months and years, the White House sought legal opinions from the Office of Legal Counsel and advised the President on the legality of several controversial programs.  For example, just six days after the 9/11 attack, Office of Legal Counsel lawyer John Yoo drafted a memorandum evaluating the legality of a program that would allow warrantless wiretapping of American’s e-mails and phone calls.[7](link is external)  Mr. Yoo, described in a public Inspector Generals’ report as “‘very well connected’ with officials in the White House,” addressed his memo to Deputy White House Counsel Timothy Flanigan, Judge Kavanaugh’s likely supervisor at the time.  It is important for the public and full Senate to understand whether Judge Kavanaugh was involved in their communications, despite having told the Committee in 2006 that he had not seen or heard anything about the President’s warrantless wiretapping program until December 2005.[8](link is external)Whether Judge Kavanaugh misled this Committee in 2006 and his involvement in these White House policies are critically important to our consideration of his fitness for a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land.  These are serious questions that could easily be addressed if we were given access to his records.  As it stands, however, you have refused to join our request for Judge Kavanaugh’s Staff Secretary records and have sought to keep his White House Counsel documents secret as well.We firmly believe that Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination cannot be considered unless these documents are available, including to the public and the Senate as a whole. We therefore urge you to join our request for Judge Kavanaugh’s Staff Secretary records and to publicly release documents from Judge Kavanaugh’s time in the White House in the same manner as was done for all previous Supreme Court nominees.  The truth should not be hidden from the Senate or the American people.                                                              Sincerely, Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Dick Durbin (D-Ill.)[1](link is external) 2006 Tr. at 20 (Sen. SPECTER: Did you have anything to do with the issues of interrogation of prisoners relating to the allegations of torture in the so-called Bybee memorandum?  Mr. KAVANAUGH: No, Mr. Chairman.); 2006 Tr. at 26 (Sen. DURBIN: Did you know that Mr. Bybee authored the torture memo or similar memos at the time of his nomination?  Mr. KAVANAUGH: No, Senator, I think you’re referring to the August 1, 2002, memo.  I was not aware of that memo until there was public disclosure of it in the news media, I think in the summer of 2004.); 2006 Tr. at 43 (Sen. LEAHY: What about the documents relating to the administration’s policies and practice on torture; did you see anything about that, or did you first hear about that when you read about it in the paper? Mr. KAVANAUGH: I think with respect to the legal justifications or the policies relating to the treatment of detainees, I was not aware of any issues on that or the legal memos that subsequently came out until the summer, sometime in 2004 when there started to be news reports on that.).

USA Triathlon and Endurance Films release DVD training series

first_imgUSA Triathlon (USAT) and a gathering of leading multisport coaches and athletes have teamed up to create the first-ever training series presented officially by triathlon’s US governing body.The ‘USA Triathlon Training Series’, produced by Endurance Films, is a comprehensive five-DVD set. It covers every facet of one of the world’s fastest growing sports, with the hope of taking all triathletes to the next level.Filmed last summer in Colorado Springs and Boulder, Colorado, each video in the series tackles a different aspect of triathlon – from getting started in the sport to specific tactics and techniques for swim, bike, run and strength training.Guiding the viewer through the series is a hand-picked group of coaches and athletes who represent the best of American triathlon talent. The series offers unprecedented, face-to-face instruction from the coaches that mentor top US athletes on a daily basis, bringing the viewer the most current training information from the best in the business.”Triathletes of all levels will benefit greatly from the same coaching tips and training techniques that help prepare our elite athletes for the world’s most prestigious races,” said USAT Sport Performance Director Scott Schnitzspahn. “For the first time, USAT has developed a training series that can help all athletes reach untapped potential in both training and racing.”Ironman legend Mark Allen kicks off the series by outlining the fundamentals of triathlon – from choosing a race to equipment to training programmes – in the first disc. Disc two features USA Triathlon resident programme swim coach Mike Doane and Olympian Andy Potts demonstrating proper swim technique, drills, open water swimming strategies and more.From the swim, coach Tim Sheeper tackles the bike with a discussion of the fundamentals of road cycling in disc three, and Olympic and international running coach Bobby McGee breaks down the mechanics of running to help athletes gain an immediate technical advantage in disc four.The fifth and final disc features elite coach and trainer Bob Seehohar, as he reveals cutting-edge, safe and effective strength and flexibility methods designed to enhance triathlon performance.”One of the challenges in coaching or participating competitively in triathlon is a unified understanding of each sport as it pertains to the whole,” said McGee, who has assisted athletes in each Olympic Games since 1988.”Individual strengths and weaknesses are often subjectively assessed and may cloud how best to optimize your potential. We all understand some part of the sport better than another, and this USAT DVD series represents an exceptionally complete overview of what it takes to achieve success in the sport of triathlon.”In addition to the featured coaching greats, elite triathletes appearing in the series include several US National Team members, such as Olympians Sarah Haskins and Andy Potts, as well as Matt Chrabot and Sarah Groff.The five-DVD set is available for purchase online for US$129 at www.usatriathlontraining.com.
