Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh Has a $1 Million House — and Very Little in Savings. Here's What We Know About His Money


U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has had a long career on the bench, leaving a lengthy paper trail for senators to examine during the upcoming confirmation process. But one part of his résumé doesn’t require reams of disclosures: his financial history.

Disclosure forms obtained by OpenSecrets indicate that Kavanaugh appears to be low on assets and investments despite taking on a variety of positions before President Donald Trump picked him to fill Anthony Kennedy’s soon-to-be vacant seat.

In his most recent filing, Kavanaugh reported working as a lecturer at Harvard Law School, a director at the Washington Jesuit Academy, an adviser at the American Law Institute and a basketball coach at the Blessed Sacrament School. In addition to his regular pay as a judge, he said he brought in about $27,500 in non-investment income, received no reportable gifts and had one loan that he recently paid off in full.

The 53-year-old added that he had up to $65,000 in assets, a designation that doesn’t necessarily include items like mortgages or cars.
