It was just a year ago that Justice Kavanaugh was appointed as the Supreme Court Justice. It was indeed a lifetime appointment and the Senate was almost divided into half. The Justice got appointed by a whisker with votes of 50 for him as against 48.
And even before a year of his appointment, an accusation of sexual misconduct has arisen against him. As per this report from the New York Times, Justice Kavanaugh has been under fire from several quarters. In fact, there have been a few stories floating already about whether he has lied under oath. The report from New York Tims on Saturday has created ripples in the political circles.
There has been a huge demand for his impeachment. As Senator Kamala D. Harris puts it,
“Brett M. Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people….He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. He must be impeached.”
Other Democrat senators have also joined in Kamala in their demand for the impeachment. Notable among them are Elizabeth Warren and Julián Castro. Incidentally, President Trump has been supportive of the infamous Justice. He claimed, “He is an innocent man who has been treated HORRIBLY,”.
This was in the wake of the recent report that the Justice Kavanaugh reportedly thrust his penis into the hand of an unidentified female student. The incident reportedly happened at the Yale in 1983. The Justice has, however, denied the charges and accusations against him.
However, given the supermajority that the Republicans hold at the Senate, it is assumed to be highly unlikely that the Justice would be impeached. However, this is definitely set to draw Trump’s ire further.
