Justice Brett Kavanaugh went through hell to get onto the Supreme Court.
Democrats did everything in their power to take him down.
But now that he’s finally in, he just got news that could remove him.
The confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh is one of President Donald Trump’s biggest accomplishments.
Throughout former President Barack Obama’s two terms he was only able to confirm two Justices to the Supreme Court.
And in Trump’s first two years he has been able to match him, with Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch.
Needless to say, Democrats are furious.
They pulled every card in their playbook to prevent this from happening.
Using a series of phony sexual assault allegations, they put him through weeks of relentless attacks which nearly destroyed his confirmation process.
If they were able to succeed, some Democrats were hoping to hold back any other Supreme Court nominee until Trump’s term expires.
But their failure means that Kavanaugh can spend the rest of his life on the highest court.
That is unless they are able to remove him from his position.
And that is one thing that Democrats are pushing, now that they have control of the House of Representatives.
With their new power in the House, they are able to run investigations with little oversight.
Many of these investigations will be into the President, scouring into his business dealings prior to taking office, and into the same debunked Russia collusion conspiracy theory Special Counsel Robert Mueller is currently looking into.
But one investigation that Democrats are likely to focus heavily on is into Justice Kavanaugh.
And now one Democrat is making it clear that investigation will be into proving he committed perjury during his testimony in front of Congress.
Democrat Rep. Joe Neguse of Colorado said as much in a recent constituent panel.
“There’s no question [Kavanaugh] committed perjury during the confirmation hearings and so forth,” Neguse said when asked if the justice might be impeached. “I think the Judiciary Committee is likely to take that up.”
Perjury is a favorite charge to lie against those who otherwise have done no wrongdoing.
During testimony, it is often that individuals may misrepresent or mistake something, and whether unintentional or not, it can be used to levy perjury charges.
In the case of Kavanaugh, this charge is particularly sinister.
He is being questioned about decades-old events, so all that is needed to prove he perjured himself is to prove he misstated a date.
Kavanaugh’s testimony relating to his high school calendars makes that especially easy.
But it is also likely they will work off of a theory popularized in the media relating to when he first learned of an allegation from a classmate at Yale.
In testimony, Kavanaugh claims that he first heard of the story in an article in The New Yorker.
But there are allegations that his team was discussing the allegation prior to publication, making it possible to create a case for perjury.
In the end, these pushes for perjury charges are ridiculous.
If they wanted to, it is likely that evidence leading towards perjury could be found in his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony.
That’s just what happens with recalling decade’s old information.
Do you think Democrats will be able to remove Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court?
