Bush nominee for Federal judge was involved in
coverup of Vince Foster murder

April 17, 2006 Brett Kavanaugh, Nominated To The Federal Bench By President Bush, Is Guilty Of Obstruction of Justice and Covering-Up Vince Foster's Murder, According to U.S. Attorney.

According to Sacramento U.S. Attorney, Miguel Rodriguez, Kenneth Starr, Kavanaugh and other higher-ups have lied through their teeth in the Foster investigation. Rodriguez also claims top Washington journalists failed the public by not reporting the true facts surrounding the Foster case.

Brett Kavanaugh, an assistant to President Bush and nominee to be a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, is one of the main White House lackeys involved in the 1993 murder cover-up of Vince Foster, according to a Sacramento U.S. Attorney and former lead investigator in the Foster case.

Further, high-powered and corrupted journalists like Michael Isikoff, Steve Labaton, Micah Morrison, Matt Drudge and others were aware of the attorney's credible charges, but failed to report them to the American people.

By not reporting the cover-up in the Foster investigation as well as not reporting witness stories, journalists aid the government perpetrators in silencing witnesses, said Miguel Rodriguez, the lead U.S, Attorney in the Foster investigation, who blew the whistle on the cover-up 11 years ago.

Rodriguez added that crime scene witnesses that were compromised by investigators and then ignored by the complicit media included Jean Slade, Judith Doody, Mark Fiest, Patrick Knowlton, park service workers Chuck Stough, Francis Swann, as well as rescue workers, Todd Hall, Richard Arthur, George Gonzalez, Ralph Pisani, Jennifer Wacha, Cory Ashford, William Bianchi, Victoria Jacobs, Roger Harrison, Andrew Makuch, the coroner's wife, and two unnamed tow truck drivers.

"The public still does not know of these people or their stories," said Rodriguez in testimony recaptured in a shunned and ignored book entitled Failure of the Public Trust. A transcript of the 1999 book, a must read for anyone wanting to learn how the government covered-up the controversial Foster murder officially listed as a suicide, is located at

After blowing the whistle on the cover-up, Rodriguez was immediately demoted from the White House to the "attorney dog house" in Sacramento. California, after charging Kavanaugh, independent prosecutor Kenneth Starr, and other higher-ups involved in the drafting of Starr's independent prosecutor's report were complicit in the cover-up, knowingly hiding evidence leading to Foster's murder, not suicide.

Rodriguez finally resigned from Kenneth Starr's office of Independent Counsel in the spring of 1995, when he said Starr's staff totally frustrated his investigation. Leaving the investigation, Rodriguez then revealed the truth to more than 100 news outlets, including top journalists, congressmen, senators, and others, in his attempts to get the facts of the case to the public.

To this day, ignored and abandoned on the west coast, he remains the leading government authority on the Foster evidence, claiming to have witnessed widespread criminal activity in the Office of Independent Counsel.

"The Independent Counsel themselves, and the FBI, beat me back, and in fact threatened me. They told me to quote, this is a quote, 'back off.' It was either 'back off or back down.' They used both of them."

"You know it's - I have been communicated with again and told to you know, to be careful where I tread. I can tell you that it has not only to do with my career and reputation, they've also had to do with my personal health and my family."

And when Rodriguez was finally replaced, Kavanaugh was more than willing to sign on to Starr's flawed report which amounted to nothing more than a pack of lies, coming to a suicide conclusion in the Foster murder even before the investigation took place and the evidence analyzed.

Even though Kavanaugh knew the Foster suicide theory didn't make sense from the grand jury testimony, he still knowingly withheld this evidence from Starr's report, essentially according to Rodriguez submitting lies to the United States Court of Appeals, to the Special Division for the Purpose of Appointing Independent Counsels.

Rodriguez further contends Starr in a breach of the public trust knowingly allowed John Bates and Kavanaugh to submit a fraudulent report to the United States Court of Appeals. And, in essence, after Rodriguez rebelled, Kavanaugh and Bates did what he couldn't: Lie through their teeth to advance their careers.

And advance their careers and move up the ladder they have, as Bates is now a federal district court judge in Washington DC and Kavanaugh is still awaiting his approval to the federal bench.

Besides Bates and Kavanaugh, another member of Starr's investigative team complicit in the murder cover-up, according to Rodriguez, was Mark Toughey, a former member of the District of Columbia Bar Association. Rodriguez said Toughey quashed every one of his efforts to issue subpoenas and call witnesses.

"It wasn't just Toughey, there were a lot of people interested in controlling the result in the Foster case," said Rodriguez. "I was unable to call witnesses and issue subpoenas and, under control of the Democrat Mark Toughey, and compromised. You know - it's in many Republican's interest to not rock the boat, because - what we're talking about is ultimate power."

Besides the black mark of the Foster cover-up on his "real resume," making him unsuitable for a dog catcher let alone a federal judgeship, the Alliance for Justice had this to say about Kavanaugh's lack of character and qualifications to sit on the bench:

"Kavanaugh has less legal experience than nearly every past nominee to the D.C. Circuit often described as the second most important in the country. Of the 54 judges appointed to the D.C. Circuit since Congress created it in 1893, only one Kavanaugh's mentor, Kenneth Starr, had fewer years experience than Kavanaugh.

"His career is distinguished only by its partisanship. There is nothing in his experience to suggest he would show the independence of thought required of a judge on the second most powerful court in the nation. His short record stands in sharp contrast to the records of the many legal giants whom past presidents have chosen to sit on the D.C. Circuit."
