On the one year anniversary of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Kamala Harris is calling on the House Judiciary Committee to launch a formal impeachment inquiry into Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, citing a need to determine the truth about the allegations against him after a farcical investigation last year.

In an op-ed for Elle magazine, Sen. Harris noted the FBI investigation was “not serious.” Indeed, the agency did not interview multiple witnesses and/or corroborators, something they said was inexplicably outside the scope of their extremely narrow investigation directives. The system failed women and she made the case to revisit the Kavanaugh allegations through an impeachment inquiry.

If we want to live in a country where women are believed and given access to the justice they deserve, we must roll up our sleeves and get to work holding our leaders accountable—especially those who serve on the highest court in our land.

We need to get to the truth about Kavanaugh. And I believe the best path to truth and accountability is through a formal impeachment process.

And for those who say this will go nowhere in the Senate, she has a message for you too: it’s about restoring faith in our justice system.

There are some who will say that articles of impeachment against Kavanaugh will go nowhere in the United States Senate, which is controlled by Republicans who have repeatedly coddled the misbehavior of the president and his allies. And, yes, that may be the end result for political purposes.

But, restoring faith in our justice system requires meaningful accountability and transparency. This should have been given to the American people before Kavanaugh was confirmed to a lifetime seat on our highest court. It didn’t, and it was a national travesty. But, it is within the power of the United States Congress to do it now.

Hear, hear!

Let’s impeach Trump first. Stay on point. When was kavanaugh even a concern when we still have a Republican that will nominate another loser. Save that impeachment for when we have all chambers. Besides, there are at least 3 or 4 in line before him.
