Brett Kavanaugh has been a judge of the United States Supreme Court for almost a year. His appointment was preceded by a bitter Senate debate between Democrats and Republicans. Several women accused Kavanaugh of sexual abuse during his high school and college years. Nevertheless, President Donald Trump managed to get his favorite candidate to the Supreme Court.
The dispute over the 54-year-old judge is now contending again. The moment is a book that has just been published by two New York Times reporters.
Who is Brett Kavanaugh? This is the central issue pursued by the two authors. They address the privileged environment from which the judge comes, as well as his rise to the top of the United States Justice . The book provides a moral picture of America's education and political system. But it is also about new allegations of sexual misconduct by arch-conservative judges at a young age.
Accusation of Injury against Kavanaugh
Democrats reacted as expected with outrage against recent revelations. In particular, some presidential candidates, such as Beto O & # 39; Rourke and Julian Castro, as well as Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris spoke. The two senators had joined the Judiciary Committee, which had interviewed Kavanaugh during a sensational hearing. "Brett Kavanaugh lied to the US Senate and the American people," Harris tweeted. At the end of her tweeting, she demanded a lawsuit against Judge Kavanaugh. Even O & # 39; Rourke was on Twitter for impeachment, as Kavanaugh lied under oath. Similarly, Warren and Castro replied.
I sat through these hearings. Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. The Senate and most importantly for the American people. He was put on the court through a trial and his place on the court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice.
He must be impeached.

In his book "The Education of Brett Kavanaugh" NYT reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly discuss acquaintances. Accusations by former Yale colleague Deborah Ramirez. She should have the current judge at one party patted his penis on the face. The charges against Christine Blasey Ford, who stood up for the hearing in the Senate, are also deepened. Kavanaugh is said to have sexually assaulted them when they were both teenagers.
The book contains hitherto unknown details that weigh Kavanaugh. As a former Yale classmate reported that he had seen Kavanaugh at a party with pants down. It would have friends squeezed his penis into a young woman's hand. The man who told this said he had told several senators and the FBI about the incident last year in connection with the nomination process. However, the FBI did not investigate.

Author's duo Pogrebin / Kelly allegedly talked to Kavanaugh. However, the judge and the journalists could not agree on the terms of an interview. Neither did Kavanaugh respond to claims on the latest reports from former Yale classmates who accused him.
Trump talks about lies about Kavanaugh
US President Trump angrily responded to recent charges against Judge Kavanaugh. On Twitter, he attacked the "radical left Democrats" as well as "corrupt fake news media". The demands of anxiety were based on false accusations and lies.
Can't let Brett Kavanaugh give radical left-wing Democrat (Liberal Plus) opinions based on threats of engaging him because of stories (sounds familiar?), False accusations and reading, This is the game they play. Fake and Corrupt News works overtime! #ProtectKavanaugh

The judges of the United States Supreme Court are truly elected for life. Yet they also have the opportunity to remove them from their service. The judicial procedure is similar to that of US presidents. The Democrats can impose the U.S. House of Representatives, where they have the majority since mid-2018.
In fact, Kavanaugh could only be dismissed by a two-thirds majority in the U.S. Senate. In the Senate, Republicans have a clear majority. The Democrats' reputation for impeachment is symbolic at best.
There has been a single impeachment by a Supreme Court in US history. In 1805 Samuel Chase was accused of bias. But because of the high hurdle in the Senate, the impeachment process failed. And Chase, who signed the United States Declaration of Independence, remained a judge.
