Rep. Jerry Nadler Promises to Investigate Kavanaugh If Dems Take Back the House

In an interview with the New York Times before Brett Kavanaugh officially became an associate judge of the Supreme Court, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) promised an investigation into him if Democrats take back the House in the upcoming midterms.

“It is not something we are eager to do,” Nadler told the Times. “But the Senate having failed to do its proper constitutionally mandated job of advise and consent, we are going to have to do something to provide a check and balance, to protect the rule of law and to protect the legitimacy of one of our most important institutions.”

If Democrats win a majority of seats in a “blue wave,” Nadler is slated to be chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.

Nadler explained they would not only look into the sexual assault allegations made against Kavanaugh, but also if he had committed perjury.

“We have to assure the American people either that it was a fair process and that the new justice did not commit perjury, did not do these terrible things, or reveal that we just don’t know because the investigation was a whitewash,” Nadler added.

On Saturday, the Senate voted to confirm Kavanaugh 50-48.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi had harsher words for Senate Republicans.

“The conduct of the Senate Republican Majority did violence to the reputation of both the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Supreme Court,” Pelosi said in a statement. “We must proceed in a judicious manner to set the record straight and ensure that this never happens again.”

We absolutely should clean up the culture of corruption. Feinstein should be the first to go! And BTW, “EVIL” isn’t defined as “people that don’t agree with your opinion”.

Dr. Ford’s bravery in stepping forward to testify about her experience of sexual assault has revealed much about Judge Kavanaugh’s character which would have been hidden beneath his finely honed armor of credentialed perfection, air of moral invincibility and privileged entitlement. Judge Kavanaugh repeatedly lied under oath, was evasive and defensive and downright rude in response to questions from Democratic Senators on the Judicial Committee.His calculated performance ranging from tearing up, whining, pouting and bursts of anger was beneath an officer of the judicial court seeking its highest office. Maybe impeachment, if nothing else,.will hold him to account cleanse the… Read more »

Nadler is assuming he will be re-elected. As a Representative he is up for election every 2 years so if he is making plans like this he must have bought his way back. Vote Red & return him & others like him to their rocking chairs on their front porches permanently.
