Impeach Brett Kavanaugh

Credible accusations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanagh were never thoroughly investigated before his confirmation to the Supreme Court. He never should have been confirmed. And with his vote to overturn Roe, it is clear he lied under oath during his hearings. Congress must impeach Kavanaugh, thoroughly investigate his lies and the cases of sexual assault, and hold him accountable.

Why is this important?

When Donald Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, multiple women came forward bravely to share their experiences of Kavanaugh's sexual assault, aggression, and maliciousness. Last August, we learned the FBI never fully investigated these credible accusations—because they were following the Trump administration's politicized directions.

Clearly, this investigation was incomplete, inexcusable, and designed to dismiss the multiple cases of sexual assault brought forward. Republicans rushed through Kavanagh's confirmation without a thorough investigation.

Nobody should be in a lifetime seat on the nation's highest court under such circumstances. The Senate must impeach Kavanaugh immediately.

Furthermore, during his hearings, he attested to his respect for settled law—including the precedent of Roe v. Wade. As his recent decision to overturn Roe and strip abortion protections from hundreds of millions has demonstrated, he has no respect for our health, our automomy, or for the truth. He and the other justices must be investigated and, if it is found they lied under oath, they must face consequences.

Congress must impeach, investigate, and hold Kavanaugh accountable.
