NYTimes Requests the Kavanaugh Family’s 911 Calls

The New York Times is yet again looking to manufacture a hit piece against President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, according to documents obtained by NTK Network.

The New York Times recently filed a request under the Maryland Public Information Act (PIA) seeking any 911 calls that were made from Judge Kavanaugh’s house from 2006 to the present day.

“The New York Times requests digital copies of all policing pertaining to Brett Kavanaugh, a resident of Chevy Chase Section 5,” according to the request. “Specifically, we request all policing records, including police reports or calls of service (911 calls or otherwise), pertaining to Brett Kavanaugh, his wife, and their home address.”

The only police report filed from the Kavanaughs’ residence was in 2015, and it involved the family’s Jeep Grand Cherokee that was stolen.

This isn’t the first time that the New York Times has gone on a fishing expedition to try and manufacture a hit piece against Trump’s Supreme Court nominee.

In July, the Times requested that The Village of Chevy Chase Section 5 hand over any emails that Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s wife, Ashley Kavanaugh, sent as town manager that contained any “of the keywords or terms” from a list the paper provided. That list included words like “liberal,” “abortion,” “gay,” and “federalist.”

The New York Times defended its list in an op-ed August:

“As journalists, we aim to shed light on important people in the news — particularly public officials and Supreme Court nominees — to help our readers understand them, how they think and how they operate. That due diligence leads us to interview people who know the nominees, like colleagues and neighbors. It requires that we read what the nominees have written or watch speeches they’ve delivered. And it often depends on our requests for public records that could offer our readers a fresh perspective about the nominees.”

The fishing expedition by the New York Times against Ashley Kavanaugh yielded only 85 pages of emails, and the Times said that none of the emails “rendered any substantive insights into Mr. Kavanaugh’s judicial philosophy.”

At this time it is unclear if the Times believes it has a smoking gun against Kavanaugh in the form of a stolen Jeep from 2015.
