These cables confirm the findings of the Senate Intel report, and show why the release of a nominee’s FULL record before confirmation is absolutely necessary. We shouldn’t rely on restricted & incomplete records to evaluate nominees – whether to the Cabinet or the Supreme Court.
During confirmation, Gina Haspel asserted that the torture program produced valuable & actionable intelligence. These cables and the Senate Intel report suggest otherwise, yet the American public was denied information necessary to evaluate that conclusion prior to confirmation.
This shows why we must have access to all of Brett Kavanaugh’s records. The time to review his record is before voting on a lifetime appointment, not after. Reviewing a small set of documents that his own former deputy chose fails to provide a complete picture. #ReleaseTheRecords

In contrast, not one page of Elena Kagan’s White House records were withheld due to executive privilege claims. This is just the latest action in a series of actions to obstruct our review of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination. (2/5)
President Trump and Senate Republicans have gone to extraordinary lengths to hide Brett Kavanaugh’s record from the Senate and American people. (3/5)
