NY Times Files Public Info Request for Kavanaugh Police Reports

A request for any 911 calls coming from the home of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh during the past 12 years has been filed by The New York Times, NTK Network reported.

The request, made under the Maryland Public Information Act, seeks "digital copies of all policing pertaining to Brett Kavanaugh, a resident of Chevy Chase Section 5. 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" from 2006 to the present day, NTK Network noted.

According to NTK Network, the only police report filed from the residence was regarding a Jeep Grand Cherokee the family reported stolen in 2015.

The Times previously sought public records from Chevy Chase Section 5, where Kavanaugh's wife, Ashley, serves as town manager. The request yielded 85 pages of emails, which the Times described as "mundane dispatches about town business, from snow removals to local newsletters."

NTK Network categorized the Times’ request as a "fishing expedition" in an effort to manufacture a "hit piece," but the Times said its request is standard when it comes to high profile public officials.

"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," the Times said. "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."

Confirmation hearings for Kavanaugh will begin Sept. 4 with opening statements. Questioning will begin the following day, and the hearings are expected to last three or four days.
