Calls needed: Impeach Brett Kavanaugh
It's time for House Democrats to step up and lead.
Senate Republicans and turncoat Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin just confirmed Brett Kavanaugh to the Supeme Court – but House members have the power to impeach him. Kavanaugh has been credibly accused of sexual assault and lying under oath in 2004, 2006 and at least 30 times during his Supreme Court confirmation hearings.1 Perjury is an impeachable offense.
Call today to demand that House Democratic leaders investigate these accusations and work to remove Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court.
Senate Republicans have proven that they care more about helping men escape consequences for sexual harassment and assault than about making sure a liar and potential sexual predator isn't confirmed to the Supreme Court. House Republicans should be feeling massive pressure demanding they do better than their Senate colleagues.
House Democrats have a role to play too. A few weeks ago, progressive champion Rep. Ted Lieu called for impeachment and a House Judiciary Committee investigation.2 Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who is in line to chair the committee, just said he would conduct a real investigation into the allegations against Kavanaugh and hold him accountable if Democrats take control of the House this November.3 Every House member should be supporting this plan but, some are already backing away.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently said that impeachment is off the table.4 If we want accountability for Kavanaugh, we need to keep pushing. We must join together now and make clear to Rep. Pelosi and all House Democratic leaders that we expect them to lead and will hold them accountable if they don't.
