While serving as an attorney in the office of independent counsel in the 1990s, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh wrote a stomach-churning memo urging his colleagues to ask sexually explicit questions of President Bill Clinton.

The newly released memo argues that Clinton’s “pattern of revolting behavior” with White House intern Monica Lewinsky should be clearly established for the public through aggressive and explicit questioning during the former president’s Aug. 17, 1998, testimony before a grand jury.

“The President has disgraced his Office, the legal system, and the American people by having sex with a 22-year-old intern and turning her life into a shambles — callous and disgusting behavior that has somehow gotten lost in the shuffle,” he wrote.

The document was released Monday by the National Archives in connection with the Senate’s ongoing review of Kavanaugh’s work product.

The memo includes drafts of 10 proposed questions, some of which relate to specific and graphic sex acts performed in the Oval Office.
