Brett Kavanaugh Under Scrutiny Once More



GUEST: Megan Peterson, Executive Director at Gender Justice, a legal and policy advocacy org committed to gender, economic and reproductive justice.

BACKGROUND: Massachusetts Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley this week filed an impeachment resolution aimed at Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

This triggers an investigation by the House Judiciary Committee.

Pressley filed the resolution after fresh scrutiny on Kavanaugh's past from a New York Times article published over the weekend.

Specifically, the paper published in its opinion section an excerpt from a new book by two of its reporters.

The book, The Education of Brett Kavanaugh, An Investigation, details allegations made by women other than Dr. Christine Blasey Ford who famously testified before the Senate last year saying Kavanaugh tried to rape her in high school.

The Times piece focuses on Deborah Ramirez, who says that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a Yale University Party and caused her to touch his genitals. The FBI apparently declined to investigate that incident.
