Heated by the recent NY Times story about Brett Kavanaugh, The Dems are shamelessly still living in the past.
Both Kamala Harris and Julian Castro are calling for the impeachment of Brett Kavanaugh after the article accused him of sexual misconduct.
The Daily Caller reported that Sen. Kamala Harris and fellow Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro are calling for Congress to impeach sitting Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh after a report resurrected allegations against him.
“I sat through those hearings. Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people,” the California senator said on Sunday. “He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. He must be impeached.”
The Democrat candidates were reacting to a story from reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, who authored a forthcoming book about the justice called “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation.” The pair reported they reached seven individuals who could further corroborate Deborah Ramirez’s accusation.
Few other Democratic presidential candidates made similar comments regarding the report. “It’s more clear than ever that Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath. He should be impeached,” former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro said on Twitter Saturday night.
“The revelations today confirm what we already knew: During his hearing, Kavanaugh faced credible accusations and likely lied to Congress,” Sen. Bernie Sanders tweeted. “I support any appropriate constitutional mechanism to hold him accountable.”
Another candidate was more circumspect. “My concern here is that the process was a sham. I don’t think you can look at impeachment hearings without getting the documents … and the attorney general is shielding documents,” Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota said in an ABC interview Sunday morning.
Meanwhile, President Trump blasted the report and told his Twitter followers that Brett Kavanaugh “should start suing people for libel.”
