“Squad” member and freshman lawmaker Ayanna Pressley has introduced a resolution calling for Justice Kavanaugh’s impeachment.
Pressley tweeted “I still believe Christine Blasey Ford. I still believe Deborah Ramirez.”
A year ago, we stood in community to oppose Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Today, I introduced a resolution calling for his impeachment. I still believe Christine Blasey Ford. I still believe Deborah Ramirez. #ImpeachKavanaugh pic.twitter.com/GoAEo0GO6L

Pressley explained “It’s deeply disturbing that someone that serves on the highest court of the land can have this many allegations, and this is why I’ve filed the resolution to initiate an impeachment inquiry.”

“I believe Christine Blasey Ford. I believe Deborah Ramirez. It is our responsibility to collectively affirm the dignity and humanity of survivors,” she said in a statement to Boston public radio station WBUR.
Pressley referred to the two women who accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct during his contentious nomination process last October.
“Sexual predators do not deserve a seat on the nation’s highest court, and Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process set a dangerous precedent,” Pressley told WBUR. “We must demand justice for survivors and hold Kavanaugh accountable for his actions.”
The two-page resolution asks the House Judiciary Committee to investigate the possibility of impeachment.
Democratic leadership seems to have little appetite for a fight over impeachment, and the resolution is unlikely to go anywhere.
Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., the No. 2 Senate Democrat, told Politico on Monday, “We’ve got to get beyond this ‘impeachment is the answer to every problem.’ It’s not realistic.
“If that’s how we are identified in Congress, as the impeachment Congress, we run the risk that people will feel we’re ignoring the issues that mean a lot to them as families,” he continued.
