Dem candidates demand Kavanaugh's impeachment after new allegation in NYT piece

Kavanaugh Victimized By New York Times Hit Piece [OPINION] Brett Michael Kavanaugh may be immune from impeachment

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), former congressman Beto O'Rourke (Tex.) and former housing and urban development secretary Julián Castro, all presidential candidates.

"Confirmation is not exoneration, and these newest revelations are disturbing".

"Brett Kavanaugh is an outstanding Supreme Court Justice, and the left's most recent effort to destroy his life and impeach him will fail", he said.

Former Vice President Joe Biden was the only frontrunner to shy away from calling for impeachment outright.

She smartly-known that one other Times portion on the Kavanaugh allegations, focusing on the calls for impeachment, did no longer encompass the editor's existing explaining that the customary yarn had been debunked by the authors' beget e book.

The unnamed woman reportedly declined an interview and doesn't remember the incident, and Max Stier, a former classmate who apparently saw Justice Kavanaugh with his trousers down at a party, has declined to discuss the incident publicly. Ramirez had claimed that, at a drunken Yale party in the 1980s, a freshman Brett Kavanaugh pulled down his trousers and shoved his penis toward her, prompting her to inadvertently touch it.

When Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee past year, he denied all allegations of impropriety.

McIlroy named PGA Tour player of the year
The caveat here for McIlroy, of course, is that it can be the unofficial whatever, but it's technically not a major. He won three tournaments overall and finished first in the world golf rankings and on the money list.

Klobuchar sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee and famously questioned Kavanaugh during his hearing a year ago.

In the correction, the newspaper said: "The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident".

Like the movement to impeach Trump, the renewed push to oust Kavanaugh could be divisive. But it could serve to rally the Democratic base against the president ahead of the 2020 election, and serve as yet another litmus test for presidential hopefuls looking to elbow their way to the nomination.

So it could be suggested that this more modern precedent might permit Brett Michael Kavanaugh to be impeached, and ultimately removed from office, for wrongdoings committed prior to taking office, especially if they involved and allegedly influenced the confirmation process itself.

"I don't think you can look at impeachment hearings without getting the documents ... and the attorney general is shielding documents", she said during an appearance on ABC's "This Week". "He should be impeached and Congress should review the failure of the Department of Justice to properly investigate the matter".

Hemingway and Carrie Severino wrote their very beget e book about the Kavanaugh affirmation, Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Courtroom. But Democrats could use the scandal as another cudgel against Trump, who has ardently defended Kavanaugh and, in doing so, tied himself to the embattled judge.

Kavanaugh was confirmed last October after emotional hearings in the Senate over a sexual assault allegation from his high school years.
