WASHINGTON– Democratic leaders on Wednesday revealed plans to “investigate and impeach” Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the grounds of perjury and to “impeach President Donald Trump on allegations of treasonous and collusion with Russia”.
According to a report published by The Federalist, the revelations came from Judiciary Committee ranking member Rep. Jerrold Nadler, (D)-N.Y. through a series of post-election telephone calls on Wednesday.
“We’ve got to figure out what we’re doing,” said Nadler. “There’s a real indication that Kavanaugh committed perjury.”
Nadler claimed The Atlantic published an article about the allegations of a third woman who had accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. Then he claimed that when Kavanaugh was “asked at a committee hearing under oath when he first heard of the subject, he said, ‘When I’d heard of the Atlantic article.’ But there is an email chain apparently dating from well before that from him about ‘How can we deal with this?’” Nadler said.
“The worst-case scenario — or best case depending on your point of view,” Nadler continued, “you prove he committed perjury about a terrible subject and the Judicial Conference recommends you impeach him. So the president appoints someone just as bad.”
Nadler then turned his fury toward the president, alleging that Trump conspired with Russia to steal the 2016 presidential election.
Vowing to hold the president “accountable”, Nadler said he and his fellow Democrats would be going “all-in,” and that their plans may vary “depending on what [special counsel Robert] Mueller finds.”
Democrats won the seats needed to take the House on Tuesday after capturing districts where President Trump is unpopular.
During the two year course of Trump’s presidential administration, there have been numerous calls by Democrats to launch impeachment proceedings against the president on grounds of treason.
To date, those calls have gone unheeded.
