The ‘Squad’ Leads the Way on Congressional Efforts to Impeach Brett Kavanaugh
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.
We deleted a previous tweet regarding this article. It was offensive, and we apologize. https://t.co/gbUdweKbDg

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.
