It is my opinion that any talk about impeachment against the recently confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh is a waste of time as it would be extremely difficult to execute successfully. But I still back a full throttled probe as to what occurred during this entire debacle confirmation process of Judge Brett Kavanaugh from June -October 2018.
I’m thinking that the better course is to collect solid data, if it exists, against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. While the GOP US Senate members believe that they saved a good man from being destroyed by leftists out to get him, most of us believe Dr. Christine Ford’s allegations as well as those of others like Deborah Ramirez. On September 27, 2018, Dr. Ford testified before the US Senate Judiciary Committee, that she was sexually assaulted by a drunken Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge in their high school years.
I’m betting that if solid evidence were to be produced by a competent, thorough inquiry, then his fellow US Supreme Court colleagues won’t want to have any association with him to where he’ll be forced to resign.
If I were on one of the US House Oversight committees, I would want a subpoena issued to gain access to all the data that the GOP members on the US Senate Judiciary Committee had in their possession prior to the hearing, where Dr. Christine Blasey Ford presented her testimony about how during her high school years, she had been sexually attacked by a drunken Brett Kavanaugh and his friend.
This whole saga over the nomination process of Judge Kavanaugh has left a sour taste in the hearts of many American women, especially since there were a number of other equally qualified justices on a Federal Society list who were available for consideration. As a matter of fact, Judge Kavanaugh was not found on the original list. It appears that the republican President Donald Trump may have added his name to the list due to his past favorable writings regarding the expansion of rights by the executive branch. There is no way that I want this past 2018 Kavanaugh nomination process to set a precedent for the appointments for future US Supreme Court justices where his/ her partisan bona fides trumps being the best qualified nominee to represent fairly the best interests and what’s right for all Americans.
Here’s the rest of the story…
On January 22, 2019, Chris Riotta of the Independent penned the following report, “Brett Kavanaugh ‘likely’ to be investigated for perjury, House judiciary member says” (“Multiple Democrats on the House panel seen discussing latest Supreme Court justice’s possible impeachment”)
“A freshman Democrat selected to serve on the House Judiciary Committee has told his constituents the panel will “likely” investigate claims accusing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of perjury during his controversial confirmation hearings last year.”
“Joe Neguse, a Colorado Democrat elected in 2018 to serve the state’s second congressional district, told supporters on Friday the committee could move to impeach the newly-appointed justice if their findings prove he knowingly lied to lawmakers during his confirmation process.”
Donald Trump’s second pick to serve a lifelong appointment on the Supreme Court was alleged to have provided misleading statements surrounding sexual assault accusations levelled against him by Deborah Ramirez, a former Yale classmate.
“There’s no question [Kavanaugh] committed perjury during the confirmation hearings and so forth,” Mr Neguse said on Friday (1/25/19). “I think the Judiciary Committee is likely to take that up.”
“Clear discrepancies were revealed in Mr Kavanaugh’s story about when he first learned of the sexual assault allegations brought against him, though it remains unclear whether his intent was to mislead lawmakers about his knowledge of the accusations.”
“He first said during his testimony that he had only learned of Ms Ramirez’s allegations after they were published in an explosive New Yorker story.”
“However, NBC News then published a report after obtaining text messages he sent apparently discussing the accusations before they were revealed by the New Yorker.”
“The reason it remains unclear whether Mr Kavanaugh was purposefully misleading lawmakers on the issue is because he had previously informed investigators in the US Senate that he was aware Ms Ramirez was seeking to substantiate her claims by reaching out to their former classmates and fellow alumni.”
“However, Ms Ramirez’s accusations aren’t the only issue Mr Kavanaugh was accused of providing misleading statements on. The justice was criticized for providing inaccurate definitions to slang terms included in his yearbook that may have cast the Republican judge in a negative light. He was also alleged not to have provided accurate details about his tenure serving in former President George HW Bush’s White House.”
“Mr Kavanaugh has defended the answers he provided throughout his confirmation hearings as truthful and accurate to the best of his recollection.”
“Mr Neguse isn’t the only Democrat on the panel to have openly discussed the possibility of impeaching Mr Kavanaugh.”
“During an Acela train ride from New York City to Washington, Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat, was reportedly overheard by a journalist discussing what could happen if the latest Supreme Court justice was impeached.”
