Democrats and Hollywood celebs want Brett Kavanaugh impeached over new sexual misconduct allegations

0 1,041

Opinion by DJ Mellons: Democrats are calling for the impeachment of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh over a New York Times report that reignites allegations of sexual misconduct. Tell me if you’ve heard this one already…  on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” network political analyst Jason Johnson said Justice Brett Kavanaugh was like “the fifth guy in the gang ra**pe in light of a New York Times report about Kavanaugh’s potential involvement in unwanted sexual contact.

They have come unglued now that the Trump Russia Hoax has been exposed.

Johnson said, “This is giving me a flashback to all of the disgusting things that I thought about Brett Kavanaugh last year. The technical things, the mysterious debt, and we have no idea where it went. I don’t know anybody who spends that much money on Nationals’ tickets. That doesn’t make any sense to me. And then thousands of the legal documents things he wrote in the Bush administration that would Republicans would not turn forward. Then you have the history of sexual assault.”

Hollywood also took to social media and called for the impeachment of Kavanaugh following a New York Times report that a collage classmate claims he saw Kavanaugh “with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.”

“One of Trump’s Supreme Court appointments sits in a stolen seat. The other has sexually assaulted women and committed perjury about it. So there’s that,” said left-wing Hollywood director Rob Reiner aka the Meathead.

“What’s the process for impeaching a Supreme Court Justice?” Angel Has Fallen star Piper Perabo asked.The new allegation against Justice Kavanaugh “echoes” a claim, the Times reported, made against him last year by Deborah Ramirez. Ramirez alleged that as a drunken Yale University freshman, Brett Kavanaugh “exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party.” She also admitted to having “significant gaps in her memories” regarding the alleged encounter. Ramirez’s college best friend also told the Times that she had “never heard of” the incident in question.
Debra Messing took time out from her blacklisting to chime in:

Still, celebrities piled on, seeing the report against Kavanaugh as reason enough to call for his ousting from the Supreme Court.
“Agreed. Kavanaugh should’ve never gotten the job in the first place. He has no place making decisions at the highest level for our country. I do not trust him and I don’t know a single woman who does. Impeach him NOW. #ImpeachKavanaugh” said actress Amber Tamblyn.

 

Mitch McConnell chimed in on Sunday, saying “Fortunately a majority of Senators and the American people rallied behind timeless principles such as due process and the presumption of innocence. I look forward to many years of service to come from Justice Kavanaugh.”

More Hollywood hate below.

Democrats and Independents who are sick of this shit: Let the lies by Brett Kavanaugh and the cover up by the GOP-controlled Senate fuel your disgust and turn that anger into votes. Let’s take back our country in 2020 and keep men like Kavanaugh and Trump out of government.

Meanwhile, soon to be dropped out Kamala Harris accused Kavanaugh of lying during his Senate confirmation hearings following the publication of the new allegations.

“He must be impeached,” Harris declared.

Julián Castro, a Democratic presidential contender, also called for Kavanaugh’s impeachment.

“It’s more clear than ever that Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath. He should be impeached,” Castro said. “And Congress should review the failure of the Department of Justice to properly investigate the matter.”

However, the newest allegations — that seven people have corroborated Deborah Ramirez’s accusations and that Kavanaugh pulled down his pants at a Yale party and his “friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student” — are not as substantiated as Democrats would make them appear.

In fact, the Times omitted several key details from its story.

Although the Times reporters alleged they had contacted seven people who corroborated Ramirez’s story, the Times itself reported last year they could find no one to confirm Ramirez’s story; Ramirez herself could find no one to corroborate her allegations.

Meanwhile, the alleged victim of the second incident told the two Times reporters who published the story that she did not remember the alleged incident involving Kavanaugh’s being pushed into her hand.

The Times also did not include that in the story, although it was printed in the forthcoming book from which the story was pulled.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) responded to the impeachment calls Sunday, saying they represent Democrats’ obsession “with trying to smear Justice Kavanaugh.”

“I think this article just shows the obsession with the far left, — with trying to smear Justice Kavanaugh by going 30 years back with anonymous sources,” Cruz said. “It really is another sign of how nasty and divided the time is today.”

The only Supreme Court Justice to ever be impeached in U.S. history was Samuel Chase in 1805. The articles of impeachment were filed against him in the House but he was acquitted by the Senate.The House impeached him on grounds of letting his partisan leanings affect his court decisions, but ultimately remained in office.

After Kavanaugh was nominated by Trump in June 2018 to take a vacant seat on the Supreme Court, a handful of accusations spanning back decades surfaced.

Deborah Ramirez claimed Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a dorm party at Yale, where they were both students, and forced her to touch him.

Most notably, however, was Christine Blasey Ford, who alleged Kavanaugh held her down on a bed at high school party when she was 15 and tried to remove her clothing, putting his hand over her mouth to stop her screaming.

She testified before the House Judiciary Committee as part of a probe into the allegations ahead of the confirmation vote.

He was ultimately confirmed and seemed to be in the clear and avoid any controversy, until the latest accusations emerged.
