One exchange that took place with Brett Kavanaugh Wednesday can’t be understated and could prove to be rather pivotal. Senator Kamala Harris asked Kavanaugh a very direct question about whether he discussed the Mueller investigation with anyone. It prompted an awkward back and forth. These are a few lines from it:

KH: “Have you discussed Mueller or his investigation with anyone at Kasowitz Benson and Torres, the law firm found by Marc Kasowitz, President Trump’s personal lawyer? Be sure about your answer”

BK: “I’m not remembering.”

KH: “Have you had any conversation about Robert Mueller or his investigation with anyone at that firm?”

BK: “I’m not remembering, but I’m happy to be refreshed.”

Buzzfeed reports:

“…that question amounted to a near-accusation that the senator never quite made, Kavanaugh also was unable to give a direct answer — leaving the issue unresolved going into Thursday, what will be the third day of Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing.

Nothing about such a communication between Kavanaugh and a lawyer from the Kasowitz firm has been reported previously, and the White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the exchange.”

If there is truly something to Harris’ line of questioning it could (and should) have some major implications.
