(CBS NEWS) – At least three Democratic presidential candidates called for Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh to be impeached after a new report about alleged sexual misconduct from his college years.
President Trump, meanwhile, stood by Kavanaugh and said the Justice Department should “rescue” him.
Presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Julián Castro said Sunday that Kavanaugh should be taken off the nation’s highest court after the latest accusation, which comes nearly a year after other misconduct allegations roiled Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings.
Kavanaugh has not responded to the latest report, but denied all accusations that emerged during his confirmation process.

Last year the Kavanaugh nomination was rammed through the Senate without a thorough examination of the allegations against him. Confirmation is not exoneration, and these newest revelations are disturbing. Like the man who appointed him, Kavanaugh should be impeached.

I sat through those hearings. Brett 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.

It’s more clear than ever that Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath. He should be impeached.
And Congress should review the failure of the Department of Justice to properly investigate the matter. https://t.co/Yg1eh0CkNl

Brett Kavanaugh should start suing people for libel, or the Justice Department should come to his rescue. The lies being told about him are unbelievable. False Accusations without recrimination. When does it stop? They are trying to influence his opinions. Can’t let that happen!
