We have our hands full with impeaching the president now

The House Judiciary Committee is too tied up with “impeaching the president” to take immediate action on a potential investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the committee’s chairman Jerry Nadler said today. The comments come amid calls from some Senate Democrats and presidential candidates to impeach Kavanaugh after a New York Times story over the weekend reported a new allegation of sexual misconduct against the justice from his time as a student at Yale. Nadler said his first move to investigate Kavanaugh would come next month when FBI Director Christopher Wray will appear for a previously scheduled hearing. That hearing will now feature a significant focus on the Supreme Court justice’s past — and whether the FBI’s background check was thorough enough. Nadler said his panel’s primary focus would be determining whether Kavanaugh lied to the Senate.
