In case Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh makes it onto the high court, Democrats reportedly plan to try and impeach him just like they plan to try and impeach President Donald Trump.
This bombshell was revealed during a discussion Friday between Fox News host Neil Cavuto and Washington Free Beacon senior writer Elizabeth Harrington.
“There hasn’t been any other accusations against Kavanaugh,” Harrington initially said. “So far it’s one unprovable allegation, and we still don’t know if Miss Ford is going to testify. And if she doesn’t testify, I think it definitely is a done deal. If she does, I mean, it remains to be seen, but I think it’s looking likely it’s going to be confirmed at the moment.”
Her point was that the chances of accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s unsubstantiated and uncorroborated sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh derailing his conformation to the high court seem slim, especially in light of her refusal to even testify. But it’s what might come next that troubles Cavuto.
“So now comes the next issue — Democrats [we] we’re told will not let go of this, especially if they have a good shot of retaking either or both houses of Congress, particularly the Senate, where they won’t give up,” he said. “One even going so far as to say, ‘Yeah, he makes his way to the high court, we’ll move to impeach him.”
Harrington responded by first praising Democrats for finally being honest, and then conceding that yes, if Democrats retake control of Congress, “It’s not just the president that they’ll try to impeach — it’s his nominees as well.”
NYT let’s-impeach-Kavanaugh op-ed is in line with emerging threats from Democrats to investigate Kavanaugh should he be confirmed and they win either or both houses of Congress in November.

Roflmao. Now the Dems are saying they will impeach Kavanaugh if he is confirmed to the SCOTUS “when” they win the House and Senate. These people are insane. Totally batshit crazy level of insanity ob display. .

⚠️Democrats are telling their base that regardless of how the Kavanaugh hearings go, they will continue to investigate Kavanaugh, even if he’s a sitting Supreme Court Justice.

Harrington noted though that the impeachment of Kavanaugh would be one inordinately difficult feat to accomplish, in part because of the flimsy nature of the evidence against him.
“Impeachment would, I mean, this one instance is well beyond the statute of limitations. It’s supposed to be high crimes and misdemeanors. I’m not sure it’s even possible to impeach,” she said.
Ford claims Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her decades ago in high school but has been unable to provide a single piece of corroborating evidence. It’s simply her word against that of Kavanaugh, against that of Kavanaugh’s many supporters and against that of those people whom she cited as witnesses, but who claim otherwise.
“That’s a tough one to prove because ultimately people will maintain their positions and the needle won’t move, but what’s interesting, at the very least, they don’t want to give up that fight that even if he makes it to the High Court,” Cavuto added. “They’re still going to be, you know, stink on you know what.”
Of course they are, because they’re Democrats.
“If this allegation doesn’t get him off the court, they’re still going to try to stop him because they’re completely anti-Trump, completely anti-Trump agenda, which, you know, they should take the advice of President Obama, who said elections have consequences,” Harrington replied. “This was an issue Trump run on and won on.”
True, but the chances that the Democrats will finally accept the outcome of the 2016 presidential election are about as slim as the chances that the Democrats will successfully impeach Kavanaugh once he makes it onto the court.
