The startling Ambrose Evans-Pritchard article, My Sinister Battle with Brett Kavanaugh over the Truth, exposes a dirty secret from Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s past. But this doesn’t have to do with drinking or sex and neither the Republicans nor the Democrats want to talk about it. Kavanaugh justified the use of the FBI to harass and intimidate a Grand Jury witness in the Vincent Foster probe. Evans-Pritchard calls them “rogue operations at the heart of the U.S. federal system.” But how rogue are they?
Evans-Pritchard (the Washington correspondent of the London Sunday Telegraph at the time) is given well-deserved credit for finding Patrick Knowlton, a key witness in the case of the death of Clinton Deputy White House attorney Vincent Foster. Knowlton was at the park where the body was found and provided evidence about a suspicious person at the park. He described the cars at the scene. Foster’s car was not there. This means that contrary to what Independent Counsel Ken Starr (and his young prosecutor Brett Kavanaugh) concluded, Foster could not have driven himself to the park to kill himself. What’s more, Foster’s fingerprints were not on the gun and it was not his gun.
Nobody knows exactly why Foster was killed, but he had NSA binders in his possession and an FBI expert on sex crimes was assigned to the case.
