Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) declared Monday early morning that Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath throughout his verification process and “need to be impeached,” long after this weekend’s claims versus the Supreme Court Justice was debunked and the New York Times was required to correct its reporting.
The freshman lawmaker tweeted a video of an impassioned 2018 speech she offered on sexual attack, accused Kavanaugh of lying under oath, and called for his impeachment.
” This was almost a year ago. It is unsurprising that Kavanaugh, credibly accused of sexual attack, would lie under oath to secure a Supreme Court seat,” she wrote. “Because sexual attack isn’t a criminal activity of enthusiasm– it’s about the abuse of power. He should be impeached”:
This was almost a year earlier.
It is unsurprising that Kavanaugh, credibly accused of sexual attack, would lie under oath to protect a Supreme Court seat.
Because sexual assault isn’t a criminal offense of passion– it has to do with the abuse of power.

During the writing of this short article, Ocasio-Cortez inexplicably erased and re-posted this video– although the basis for her claims have been all but pulled back by the really paper that released them.
Timesstaffers Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly released a story over the weekend previewing their upcoming bookThe Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An ExaminationThe pair declares to have actually revealed a “previously unreported story about Mr. Kavanaugh in his freshman year that echoes Ms. [Deborah] Ramirez’s accusation,” implicating Kavanaugh of having his penis thrust into a female trainee’s hand:
We likewise revealed a formerly unreported story about Mr. Kavanaugh in his freshman year that echoes Ms. [Deborah] Ramirez’s accusation. A schoolmate, Max Stier, saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a various drunken dorm celebration, where friends pressed his penis into the hand of a female trainee. Mr. Stier, who runs a not-for-profit company in Washington, notified senators and the F.B.I. about this account, but the F.B.I. did not investigate and Mr. Stier has declined to discuss it publicly. (We corroborated the story with 2 officials who have actually interacted with Mr. Stier.)
Nevertheless, theTimesfailed to initially keep in mind that the alleged victim does not remember the supposed occurrence.
The publication eventually added the following note:
Editors’ Note: An earlier version of this post, which was adjusted from a forthcoming book, did not include one aspect of the book’s account considering assertion by a Yale classmate that pals of Brett Kavanaugh pressed his penis into the hand of a female trainee at a drunken dormitory celebration. The book reports the female student declined to be talked to and fr8iends say that she does not remember the incident. That information has been contributed to the article.
The individual who declared to see Kavanaugh allegedly expose himself at the party, Max Stier, acted as a Bill Clinton defense attorney during the Monica Lewinsky scandal. He likewise declined to speak to theTimes, as Breitbart News reported.
Fellow “Squad” members– Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Ayanna Pressley ( D-MA)– are also requiring Kavanaugh’s impeachment:
Nothing terrifies this corrupt president more than the concept of Congress upholding the guideline of law.
We need to open impeachment inquiries versus Trump * and * Kavanaugh immediately. It’s our constitutional duty. https://t.co/OVjBDWSqZT

As Breitbart News formerly reported, Kavanaugh’s many “credible” accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, was unable to find witnesses to corroborate her claims, and a veteran sex criminal offenses district attorney who interviewed her on the Senate floor did not discover her story reliable.
