Trump’s Supreme Court Pick, Brett Kavanaugh, Had ‘Mixed Emotions’ About Taking Down Bill Clinton

The team of lawyers assembled by special counsel Ken Starr to investigate President Clinton’s relationship with Monica Lewinsky was made up of aggressive, hard-charging types—smart on the law, ideologically conservative, and morally and religiously offended by Clinton’s behavior. One of those lawyers, Brett Kavanaugh, is now President Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, to fill what had been Justice Anthony Kennedy’s key swing seat. Republicans see him as another home run, cementing a conservative majority on the Court. Democrats see him as a political operative in judge’s robes.
