Democrats are renewing their 2018 push to keep Brett Kavanaugh off of the Supreme Court in the face of a new sexual misconduct allegation that the supposed victim doesn’t remember.
Except now, they’re seeking to impeach Kavanaugh as a sitting Supreme Court Justice, as opposed to blocking his confirmation.
The New York Times published a new allegation of misconduct against Kavanaugh, levied by a former Yale classmate and Democratic lawyer named Max Stier. As a Yale student, Kavanaugh supposedly placed his penis in the hand of a heavily intoxicated female classmate.
The Times buried a reference to the allegation in a Saturday article, and leading Democrats jumped out to make renewed calls for Kavanaugh’s impeachment after its publication. Beto O’Rourke, Elizabeth Warren, and Kamala Harris were among the Democrats who called for Kavanaugh to either resign or step down from the Supreme Court in the wake of Stier’s claims.
Yet it wasn’t until Sunday that the New York Times updated their Saturday article with an important disclaimer. The supposed victim, who wasn’t named in the article, doesn’t even remember the event in question. The entire allegation of Kavanaugh placing his penis in a drunken classmate’s hand at a party is entirely hearsay, from a third party to the event with noted connections to the Democratic Party.

One would hope that progressives would move on after failing in an attempt to tar Judge Kavanaugh’s reputation in 2018, when he was originally accused of sexual misconduct that supposedly took place decades ago just before his confirmation. But it’s likely attempts to purge the Supreme Court of conservatives will continue should Democrats obtain the White House or Senate.

Appeals Court Refuses to Expunge Joe Arpaio’s Contempt Conviction After Presidential Pardon
A judge isn’t happy about the pardon.
A federal appeals court is refusing to expunge former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpario’s contempt of court conviction, after the sheriff was granted a presidential pardon by President Trump.
Such a legal move is rare if not unprecedented for the recipient of a presidential pardon. Usually federal and state court systems dismiss the convictions of people granted presidential pardon.
Arpaio was convicted of contempt of court in 2017 for refusing to change the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department’s practices after a judge mandated that the agency cease immigration raids.
Three judges of the liberal San Francisco-based 9th Circuit Court upheld a ruling from a lower circuit court refusing to expunge the legal record of Arpaio’s conviction. The move sets new legal precedent for a recipient of a presidential pardon.
Arpaio was a frequent target of Eric Holder and the Obama administration, often coming under intense DOJ scrutiny for the practices of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department.
Arpaio ran for the United States Senate in 2018, coming in third in the Republican Primart behind Martha McSally and Kelli Ward. He’s now running for his old position as Maricopa County Sheriff once more at the ripe age of 87.
In any case, presidential pardons have traditionally resulted in dismissal of criminal convictions in federal and state courts. It’s hard to think of the 9th Circuit’s decision to maintain the conviction as anything more than a political slight to President Trump.
