National Women’s Law Center demands congressional investigation of Kavanaugh in light of new evidence

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh speaking at his 2018 confirmation hearing.

This past Saturday, the New York Times reported on more allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his days as a college student at Yale. The story has spurred many demands for a new and thorough investigation and calls for Kavanaugh’s impeachment.

The following statement was issued this morning by Fatima Goss Graves, President and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center:

A year ago, the National Women’s Law Center, along with a broad chorus of organizations and concerned citizens, called for a full Senate investigation of Brett Kavanaugh. Today, a New York Times op-ed reveals that their own investigation has uncovered a previously unreported allegation against Justice Brett Kavanaugh and identified several of his Yale classmates who have information that corroborates some of the sexual misconduct allegations against him. One former classmate tried desperately to alert the FBI about his own knowledge of Kavanaugh’s misconduct in the days before the final vote. But he never heard back from the FBI. After Christine Blasey Ford’s credible testimony—along with separate allegations of sexual misconduct by additional women—the Republican-led Senate orchestrated a sham investigation that intentionally ignored evidence and crucial leads in order to rush the confirmation of Kavanaugh to a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court. This is a disgrace. The public was denied a full accounting. The institution of the Supreme Court was denied a full accounting.  Now, a year later, Congress must finally get this right and conduct a full and thorough investigation into the allegations of sexual misconduct against Brett Kavanaugh.
