the last book I ever read (The Education of Brett Kavanaugh by Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, excerpt four)

from The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation by Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly:

“Kavanaugh knew,” said Brian Lehman, who quit his clerkship after confronting Kozinski about his inappropriate conduct in 2000. (Among other things, Lehman reported that Kozinski had shown him a video of naked women skydiving, thinking it was funny to watch their breasts flapping in the wind.)

“He put up with it for a reason,” Lehman added of Kavanaugh. “You put up with that for a year and after that Kozinski would use that power to promote you.”

Heidi Bond, one of Kozinski’s former clerks, wrote in Slate that Kavanaugh’s assertion under oath that he did “not remember” any sexual comments made by Judge Kozinski strained credulity. “This last response leaves me wondering whether Kavanaugh and I clerked for the same man,” Bone wrote. “Kozinski’s sexual comments—to both me and women—were legendary.”
