'Kavanaugh Should Be Impeached—Not Promoted': Second Sexual Assault Allegation Intensifies Opposition to Supreme Court Nominee

Accusing Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee of attempting a “cover-up” after yet another woman came forward late Sunday and accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault—an allegation the GOP has reportedly known about for nearly a week—Democrats demanded the confirmation process be put on hold until federal investigators complete a full probe of the womens’ claims while progressive critics went further and called for his impeachment from the judicial seat he currently holds.

“Enough already. A second credible allegation and numerous supporting accounts of Judge Kavanaugh’s behavior in college make it crystal clear that Judge Kavanaugh owes it to our country to withdraw immediately.”
—Rep. Pramila Jayapal

“If Republicans have blocked an FBI investigation, bullied Dr. [Christine Blasey] Ford, and tried to ‘plow right through’ and put Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court—all while holding onto credible information about a second sexual misconduct claim—then this isn’t a confirmation,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) wrote on Twitter. “It’s a cover-up.”

Shortly after Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow reported for The New Yorker that Deborah Ramirez, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh’s, has accused the judge of sexual assault, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.)—the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee—sent a letter to committee chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley (D-Iowa) calling for “an immediate postponement of any further proceedings related to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh.”

“I also ask that the newest allegations of sexual misconduct be referred to the FBI for investigation, and that you join our request for the White House to direct the FBI to investigate the allegations of Christine Blasey Ford as well as these new claims,” Feinstein added.

Other Democrats went a step further than Feinstein on Sunday, calling the new accusation against Kavanaugh more evidence of a “pattern” of unacceptable conduct and demanding that the judge withdraw his nomination immediately.

Democrats’ call for Kavanaugh to step aside was echoed by women’s rights groups, which organized a national #BelieveSurvivors walkout and moment of solidarity set to take place Monday afternoon.
