Kavanaugh complained today about a political hit fueled by “….millions of dollars in money from outside left-wing opposition groups.”
How about all of the millions spent to support him?
When Kavanaugh bemoans the campaign against him, never forget that the JCN is spending millions of dark money to promote his nomination — and we don’t know who’s paying for it.

The NRA is spending $1 million to run ads in favor of Judge Kavnaugh's confirmation. They wouldn't spend this kind of money unless they thought Judge Kavanaugh was on their side. #StopKavanaugh pic.twitter.com/9q8G5c4lHc

A deep-pocketed conservative group is launching a fresh push to confirm Brett Kavanaugh amid an allegation of sexual assault. The Judicial Crisis Network is planning a $1.5 million television ad campaign that will feature a longtime friend of Kavanaugh's. https://t.co/OviGrnWm9O

This seems odd.
Apparently the domain https://t.co/owuFXxU187 was purchased by the Judicial Crisis Network – a conservative campaign group started by Carrie Severino, former clerk to Justice Clarence Thomas – more than a year before Kavanaugh was even nominated. pic.twitter.com/X5ZlKADltD

Ed Rollins brags about securing $1 million from a donor "to help Kavanaugh get through this thing."
Rollins: "He said to me, 'If you need more, I'll put 20 big businessmen together, we'll raise the money to make this guy … make him on this court.'" pic.twitter.com/5f1ihxaECg

This is Lindsey Graham's closing argument, and it is now backed up by $400,000 worth of new ads from a pro-Kavanaugh group in West Virginia (Manchin) and North Dakota (Heitkamp):https://t.co/iUuDa6BNLW https://t.co/teZZ5r0ypL

The Judicial Crisis Network spent $10 million to back Gorsuch’s nomination and over $3 million to support Kavanaugh’s nomination. Yet JCN refuses to reveal its donors. https://t.co/k4mQul3zab
