Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), a member of the far-left “Squad” of Democratic freshmen representatives, is leading the Congressional effort to impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh over specious charges that he committed sexual assault many decades ago.
“Sexual predators do not deserve a seat on the nation’s highest court and Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process set a dangerous precedent,” Pressley said in a statement. “We must demand justice for survivors and hold Kavanaugh accountable for his actions.”
Pressley’s proposed resolution would allow Congress to levy subpoenas and request affidavits and depositions to build a case for a formal impeachment inquiry against Kavanaugh.
“I believe Christine Blasey Ford. I believe Deborah Ramirez. It is our responsibility to collectively affirm the dignity and humanity of survivors,” Pressley said.
The impetus to impeach Kavanaugh has renewed following an New York Times article re-hashing the same allegations that failed to stop him from getting confirmed almost a year ago. They published an excerpt from a new book, “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation,” featuring a bombshell from Max Stier, a Clinton attorney, who claimed he saw Kavanaugh drop his pants and assault a woman at a Yale University party.
The woman who was supposedly assaulted has refused to comment on the matter, and her friends say she does not remember the alleged attack. These details were omitted from the article.
The Times was forced to issue a correction shortly after publication, which stated: “An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book’s account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hands of a female student at a drunken dorm party.”
“The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident,” the correction continued.
The writers of the Times article are now claiming that the paper’s editors removed an important qualifier from the draft they originally submitted:

The Times initially released a tweet accompanying their fake news article stating that “having a penis thrust in your face at a drunken dorm party may seem like harmless fun.” They removed that tweet and were forced to apologize for that remark shortly after.

This disgrace has not stopped Pressley and other opportunistic Democratic leaders from renewing their push to take down Kavanaugh, as liberals become increasingly ruthless and unhinged in their pursuit for political control.
FLASHBACK: Three Recent Supreme Court Justices Were Confirmed Within 45 Days
There’s ample precedent for a quick confirmation.
There are 45 days until the November 3rd presidential election, and there’s ample precedent for an expedited confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice in such a timeframe following a vacancy.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, setting up a possible contentious confirmation process to fill her seat. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging that a tentative Trump administration nominee for the position will receive a vote on the Senate floor, despite outrage and indignation on the part of progressives falsely maintaining that McConnell is breaking precedent he set by refusing to confirm Merrick Garland. President Obama tried to get Garland confirmed when the opposing party controlled the Senate, a divided government that does not exist in 2020.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg herself was formally nominated by President Clinton on June 22nd, 1993. Her confirmation process began on July 20th, and she was confirmed on August 3rd, with a total of 42 days elapsing between her nomination and confirmation.
John Paul Stevens’ nomination was advanced and confirmed in a speedy 19 days, and Sandra Day O’Connor was confirmed in 1981 in a total of 33 days.
In fact, every single Supreme Court nomination of the past 45 years was nominated and voted upon within a shorter duration of the time remaining in Donald Trump’s first presidential term.
Yes, Trump has time to nominate and get his nominee confirmed to the Supreme Court. EVERY SINGLE VOTE ON A #SCOTUS NOMINEE OF THE LAST 45 YEARS was voted on in less time than what Trump has between now and the end of his current term. pic.twitter.com/og5aOZsiw1

There’s actually wide precedent for nominating and confirming a Supreme Court justice within the confines of President Trump’s first term, and Democrats are being untruthful or erroneous to suggest otherwise.
McConnell is beginning initial work to advance confirmation hearings, with potential liberal Republicans such as Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski presenting themselves as possible holdouts. It is possible to approve a judge with 50 votes in the Senate and a Vice Presidential tiebreaker.
