U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh served as counsel in the George W. Bush White House, where he worked on advancing several Bush court nominees, including Judge Charles Pickering, whose nomination was blocked amid revelations about his history on race and ties to segregationists. Under oath in 2006, Kavanaugh told the Senate he had little role in Pickering's nomination, but emails released in August 2018 show his role may have been larger than he claimed.
