Aaron Hand is serving up to 25 years in prison for masterminding a $100 million mortgage fraud scheme, and he wanted to kill the witness he blamed for putting him there. Hand tricked his parents, who thought he needed money to bribe a prison guard, into paying the would-be hit man a suspiciously low down payment of $150, and Hand provided the instructions: “Boom. Lights are shattered … Rush in, boom, boom, boom. Run upstairs, downstairs, get it — just hit the road,” he told the supposed killer. “No samples. No DNA. Wear gloves. Wear something over your head,” Hand insisted. The man he was talking to was an undercover cop wearing a wire, and now Hand faces new charges of conspiracy, and first- and second-degree attempted murder. He’s claiming entrapment: “He never wanted to hurt anyone, to kill anyone,” said his lawyer, but Hand’s foul mouth says otherwise.
Last year the Kavanaugh nomination was rammed through the Senate without a thorough examination of the allegations against him. Confirmation is not exoneration, and these newest revelations are disturbing. Like the man who appointed him, Kavanaugh should be impeached.
I sat through those hearings. Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people. He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. He must be impeached.
It’s more clear than ever that Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath. He should be impeached. And Congress should review the failure of the Department of Justice to properly investigate the matter.
Yesterday, we learned of another accusation against Brett Kavanaugh—one we didn’t find out about before he was confirmed because the Senate forced the F.B.I. to rush its investigation to save his nomination. We know he lied under oath. He should be impeached.
