Brett Kavanaugh must be impeached
Brett Kavanaugh is a liar and credibly accused sexual predator, yet misogynistic Senate Republicans put him on the Supreme Court anyway.
But Kavanaugh’s days on the court could be numbered, especially if enough of us speak out to force the House of Representatives, especially congressional Democrats, to take action to hold him accountable.
The New York Times recently reported an in-depth corroboration of Kavanaugh’s college assault of Deborah Ramirez, a classmate of Kavanaugh who came forward last year during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings. The article highlights how Senate Republicans constrained the FBI’s investigation of her allegations in their attempt to railroad Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and ram through Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
We’re calling on Congress to begin impeachment proceedings immediately to hold Kavanaugh accountable. You can sign our petition calling for Kavanaugh’s impeachment here.
The text of our petition reads: “There is no room for an accused sexual predator and liar on the Supreme Court. Initiate impeachment proceedings to get Brett Kavanaugh off the federal bench.”
Kavanaugh was credibly accused of sexual assault and lying under oath in 2004 and 2006 and at least 30 times during his Supreme Court confirmation hearings. Not only is lying under oath unacceptable, but perjury is an impeachable offense.
In 2018, Democrats promised that if they took control of the House of Representatives, they would open an investigation into accusations of sexual misconduct and perjury against Kavanaugh. It’s past time to make good on that promise.
We must hold each and every Democrat in the House of Representatives accountable and demand that they preserve the legitimacy of the Supreme Court. Click here to sign our petition demanding that the House of Representatives impeach Brett Kavanaugh.
