THREAD, re: this frequently raised point: "OK, maybe Judge Kavanaugh didn't commit perjury. But wasn't his testimony misleading/incomplete/not totally forthcoming? Shouldn't we demand more for #SCOTUS?" #KavanaughHearings#KavanaughConfirmationHearings1. At the outset, thanks to everyone for their thoughtful engagement with my tweets evaluating the "perjury" claims against Kavanaugh, which I deeply appreciate (even -- or especially -- when folks disagree with me). Sorry I can't respond to all individually.

THREAD. "Perjury" claims against Judge Brett Kavanaugh re: NSA surveillance.
1. I've done long threads on claims that Kavanaugh "perjured" himself re: Pryor & #Memogate. This thread will be shorter. #SCOTUS#KavanaghHearing#KavanaughConfirmationHearings2. Those two prior threads were long not because the claims have any merit, but just because I tried to go through all the evidence in methodical fashion.
1. The key issue here is CONTEXT. The quotations by Kavanaugh that people are fixating on must be read in light of the entire 2004 hearing transcript, which is available here: bit.ly/2M3VIUv - #SCOTUS#KavanaughHearings
