Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh denied having a gambling problem in a questionnaire submitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) asked Kavanaugh a series of questions related to a publicly disclosed email from 2001 in which the judge apologized to his friend for “growing aggressive after blowing still another game of dice” on a weekend trip.

Whitehouse asked Kavanaugh about his debts, whether he reported any gambling debts to the Internal Revenue Service and whether he had sought treatment for a gambling problem.

“Have you ever sought treatment for a gambling addiction?” Whitehouse asked in his written inquiry.

Kavanaugh responded, “No.”

    Kavanaugh’s wink tells me otherwise . It is a major addiction. Once a gambler, always a gambler.
    Can you imagine having an addicted gambler at the Supreme court ? This can be extremely dangerous for the country
