Elizabeth Warren tempers stance on Kavanaugh impeachment

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

The New York Times attempted to resurrect the left’s smear campaign against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend with a “new” allegation of sexual misconduct from his years at Yale University, only for the unverifiable accusation to be quickly revealed as a complete dud requiring corrections and clarifications from the paper.

As if on cue, a number of prominent Democrats and 2020 presidential contenders, including Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, immediately called for Kavanaugh to be impeached and removed from the court. Following the embarrassing walk-back of the claims from The Times, however, Warren has similarly retreated, even if just slightly, from her strident impeachment demand.

Warren backslides on impeachment

Breitbart reported that Warren had initially tweeted a call for Kavanaugh’s impeachment on Sept. 15 after the latest accusation was first published. She wrote, “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.”

But on Tuesday, in response to a reporter’s question about whether the Supreme Court and the decisions it renders would be “compromised” so long as Kavanaugh was seated, Warren seemingly walked back her own call for impeachment ever so slightly and replied, “The way I see it is we just need an investigation.”

Marginal retreat

“You said that Brett Kavanaugh should be impeached,” the reporter said. “Does that mean that his seat on the Supreme Court means that every decision that the Supreme Court makes from here on forward is compromised?”

“The way I see it is we just need an investigation,” Warren said. “When Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed it was after the FBI had done a hurry-up job, and the whole nomination was crammed down the throats of both Congress and the United States. And now more allegations have come out. We need a real investigation.”

Warren asserted that there had been an “open ethics investigation” against Kavanaugh that was simply “dropped” upon his confirmation due to the Supreme Court not having the same ethics rules as the rest of the judicial system, something she vowed to change if elected. As for an “investigation,” however, Warren did say, “The only tool available to us for an investigation is through impeachment proceedings.”

Impeachment remains the goal

The reporter pressed and asked again, “Do you think the future decisions of the Supreme Court are now in question?”

Slightly shaking her head “No,” Warren replied, “Where we are right now is we should have an investigation. We shouldn’t have to face a question like that. That’s why we have an FBI.”

“Right now, Brett Kavanaugh has been accused of lying to Congress during his confirmation hearings, and so that means we should have an investigation into it. And the way to do that is through an impeachment proceeding,” she added.

Sen. Warren, like many of her Democratic comrades, rushed to judgment and called for the impeachment of Kavanaugh almost instantaneously after the latest allegation of misconduct emerged.

Now that this latest claim has been revealed to be extremely weak and essentially devoid of corroboration, Warren has at least tempered her demand by suggesting an investigation be conducted first, albeit one that is done through an impeachment process, meaning that Kavanaugh’s removal from the court likely remains her ultimate objective.
