Some Call For Justice Kavanaugh’s Impeachment Following New Allegations
A New York Times piece over the weekend presented a witness account of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulting a young, unnamed woman while they were both in college — a new allegation in addition to those levied against the judge during his confirmation hearing last year. The New York Times also presented corroboration of a previously reported allegation levied by Deborah Ramirez, a former classmate of Kavanaugh’s who says he assaulted her in a similar manner while they were both at Yale.

Now, some Democrats are calling for Kavanaugh’s impeachment, saying they are concerned both about continued allegations of sexual misconduct and the possibility that he may have lied under oath.

To discuss, Jim Braude was joined by retired federal Judge Nancy Gertner, now a professor at Harvard Law School, and James Rappaport, former chair of the Massachusetts Republican Party and director of the New Boston Fund.
