SCOTUS Scandal: Kavanaugh Likes Baseball! [VIDEO]

STOP THE PRESSES. The Washington Post has THE scoop on the financial report that the White House released today on future SCOTUS Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Are you ready?

BRACE YOURSELF.


Oh.

That’s it?


That’s it.

White House spokesman Raj Shah told The Washington Post that Kavanaugh built up the debt by buying Washington Nationals season tickets and tickets for playoff games for himself and a “handful” of friends. Shah said some of the debts were also for home improvements.

In 2016, Kavanaugh reported having between $60,000 and $200,000 in debt accrued over three credit cards and a loan. Each credit card held between $15,000 and $50,000 in debt, and a Thrift Savings Plan loan was between $15,000 and $50,000.

The credit card debts and loan were either paid off or fell below the reporting requirements in 2017, according to the filings, which do not require details on the nature or source of such payments. Shah told The Post that Kavanaugh’s friends reimbursed him for their share of the baseball tickets and that the judge has since stopped purchasing the season tickets.

Shah did not provide the names of the friends or additional details about the tickets. Kavanaugh, who is known to be a Nationals fan, declined to comment.

Shah said the payments for the tickets were made at the end of 2016 and paid off early the next year.

“He did not carry that kind of debt year over year,” Shah said.

Kavanaugh’s most recent financial disclosure forms reveal reportable assets between $15,000 and $65,000, which would put him at the bottom of the financial ranking of justices, most of whom list well over $1 million in assets. The value of residences is not subject to disclosure, and Shah added that Kavanaugh has a government retirement account worth nearly half a million dollars that also was not required to be disclosed.

“At this time the Kavanaughs have no debt beyond their home mortgage,” Shah said.

“Democracy Dies In Darkness”…. or like a can of corn in center field, apparently.

All joking aside, this is a front-line contender for the dumbest “investigation” scoop of the year. And people who are, well, NORMAL, don’t seem to see this as a problem.

Personally, this gives me an even better reason to like Kavanaugh.


Though there are those who needed to get a good-natured dig in.


HEY. I’m a Seattle Mariners fan, and I should know something about disappointment! True fans NEVER give up on their team. Another point for Kavanaugh.

And the kind of person who finds this entire “story” compelling says more about their intellectual level than anything else. Oh, hello Shannon Watts. Fancy seeing you here.


Let’s just say that even her devotees were not impressed.


And if buying baseball tickets “sounds off” to Shannon Watts… well, I’m gonna come right out and say it. Shannon Watts is clearly a Russian bot, because she can’t understand why anyone would buy baseball tickets. *snicker*

Also, Chris Cillizza, just… stop.


Baseball is the Great American Pastime and soon-to-be Justice Kavanaugh, I salute you for your loyalty to your team.

Also, as I’m currently living through my own home renovation struggles – man, that’s a money suck. Seriously, Washington Post – go get a few quotes from some local contractors, and then you’ll see what I’m talking about.

So, will the entire SCOTUS be playing the winner of the Congressional baseball charity game? They’ve got nine people! They can stick Ginsburg out in left field in a rocking chair with a mitt in her lap.
