Free Speech For People launched a campaign to impeach Justice Brett Kavanaugh on September 9, 2018, following evidence emerging of Kavanaugh committing perjury before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. We have since expanded the grounds for impeachment to include credible allegations of sexual assault and bringing the judiciary into disrepute. Newsweek covered our campaign today, following the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Freshly approved Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh should be impeached by the House Judiciary Committee for lying to Congress about his involvement in the George W. Bush administration, according to a watchdog group’s petition Saturday immediately following Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the country’s highest court.
Free Speech for People told Newsweek it started the non-partisan campaign ImpeachBrett.org that accused Kavanaugh of lying to Congress during testimony he gave in 2004, 2006 and most recently about alleged sexual assault and misconduct when he was in high school and college.
“No one is above the law, not even a Supreme Court Justice,” co-founder and president of Free Speech For People John Bonifaz said in a statement. “Further, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has presented powerful and credible testimony that Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when she was 15 years old. And, there are serious allegations from two other women that he committed other acts of sexual violence. All of this warrants an immediate impeachment investigation.”
