On April 11, 2019, Free Speech For People joined Demand Justice and a coalition of sexual assault survivors’ organizations and other progressive groups to urge House Democrats to investigate Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation.
Free Speech For People first called for an impeachment investigation of Brett Kavanaugh in October 2018, due to multiple allegations of sexual assault, perjury, and bringing the judiciary into disrepute. But the fight for justice continues.
From the letter:
Serious questions remain about whether Justice Kavanaugh lied to the Senate; whether he sexually assaulted the women who credibly accused him of doing so; whether there are cases on which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned and from which he must be recused; whether he lied about his financial debt and how it was repaid; and whether he is ultimately fit to be a justice on the Supreme Court.
The letter provides an outline of the multiple wrongs which occurred during Kavanaugh’s confirmation process and urges the House Committees on the Judiciary and Oversight and Reform to do what is right:
Senate Republicans made a mockery of their constitutional responsibility to provide “advice and consent” on the president’s nomination of Justice Kavanaugh, and the American people deserve to know how and why the process was such a sham.
We stand with Demand Justice and the more than two dozen groups that signed the letter urging the House to investigate Justice Kavanaugh’s sham confirmation.
