So,assuming Kavanaugh gets confirmed, but Avenatti's client pursues criminal charges in Maryland

Would they then be able to subpoena the thousands of pages of documents that the Repubs refused to release?

1. Perhaps that issue would end up before the Supreme Court...

2. If they related to the case

I would assume that would be possible. If the documents did not do so, I suspect not.

5. Private parties don't "pursue criminal charges"

 


Avenatti's unidentified client may make a complaint to law enforcement in whatever jurisdiction might be relevant and not time-barred. But whether to pursue anything at all would be up to the prosecutor in that jurisdiction.

Documents generated years after the event would unlikely be relevant to any issue in such a case.

6. Heres my dream.

It starts out as a nightmare when Kavanaugh gets 100% of Repug votes, but things change after that.
Women are very motivated to vote against Repugs and Dems take over the House and Senate
Avennati gets a criminal indictment of Kavanaugh in 2019 & Kav is convicted (Kav can't vote on his own case and SCOTUS ties)
Kavanaugh is impeached after Dems take presidency and we get to install a lw SCOTUS and the danger has significantly cooled & we can all breathe again.

9. Not likely

Only documents directly related to the crime being investigated would be looked at. Documents that were produced decades after would not be relevant to the investigation.

10. Can you imagine that? A Supreme Court justice facing arrest. Brought to you by the GOP.

13. Same group that sold out to Russia big time for power & $$

Also the same group that supports Nazis, KKK, white separatist and every foul hate filled racist & misogynist group there is. They are not patriots, they are traitors. I knew repugs were horrible and inhuman, hated women minorities and working class. I never knew they were traitors, actually in thrall to a hostile foreign country, until 2016 when it was so sadly real.

12. Probably not.

What relevance would his work in the White House have to actions he took as a high school student?

And do we even know that Avenatti's client's allegations relate to something that occurred in Maryland (or what those allegations are)?
