Democrats call for Kavanaugh’s impeachment after New York Times reveals new allegations
We all thought the drama with Brett Kavanaugh was over once he was confirmed to the Supreme Court — but that has hardly been the case.
After The New York Times published an article rehashing the sexual assault allegations made against Kavanaugh, some Democrat members of Congress are now trying to have the justice impeached, according to NPR.
The “New” Story
Earlier this week, the Times published a piece in its opinion section with a “new” allegation against Kavanaugh.
The only problem: the allegation was not new — and neither was the witness.
The new voice, Max Stier — who was a Yale classmate of Justice Kavanaugh’s — merely rehashed the accusation that Kavanaugh exposed himself to women during his college days.
This allegation, however, was made on behalf of another woman who had not gone public. In fact, that woman refused to be interviewed and her friends said she didn’t remember the incident — a fact that the Times conveniently left out at first.
Dems attack Kavanaugh
After the story went public, several Democrat candidates immediately called for Kavanaugh’s impeachment, including Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Julián Castro.
Some members of Congress have also joined the chorus, saying these allegations need to be investigated further.
The problem for all of them, though, is that the FBI was already made aware of Stier’s story — but they didn’t pursue it. And for good reason, considering that the alleged victim didn’t even corroborate the story.
But while the cries from the peanut gallery get louder, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has already hinted she is not willing to push this issue.
And that’s probably for the best as far as she’s concerned. The American people won’t be too keen on the Dems if they keep trying to force Republicans out of office.
That’s about the least democratic thing they could do. But we wouldn’t be surprised.
