Rep. Jerry Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, threw some cold water on talk of Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s impeachment Monday, saying the committee is just too busy impeaching President Trump to even consider impeaching a Supreme Court justice.

House Judiciary chairman signals impeachment calls against Kavanaugh are premature https://t.co/P6wQPVL48c

There’s that and the fact that Sunday’s book excerpt from two New York Times reporters has since been amended with an editor’s note adding that the woman who was allegedly sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh back in college doesn’t remember the incident.
There are plenty of reasons for Democrats to revive the Brett Kavanaugh hearings now, but even Nadler said to WNYC, “We have our hands full with impeaching the president right now and that’s going to take up our limited resources and time for a while.” And he’s said that at the conclusion of the inquiry, the House will vote on articles of impeachment … or maybe they won’t.
So, too early to start an impeachment inquiry into Kavanaugh?

"Premature" = "let's drag out these utterly bogus obviously libelous lies as long as we can to smear any decision Kavanaugh rules on and scare off any other true conservatives from accepting an appointment to SCOTUS when RBG kicks the bucket."

It’s so premature if it was a pregnancy I would say the woman was still a virgin

Less premature and more like stillborn.

No kidding. No evidence once again.

Peel back the slime and "premature" actually translates to "unfounded."

Let them do it. Doubling down on a pair of 2’s is so Democrat

The left: We should immediately impeach a SCOTUS justice because the person who was the supposed victim of a sexual assault has no memory of it, but a former Clinton attorney says he saw it.
Also the left: We would totally never abuse red flag laws.

You think? I mean the liars from the @NYTimes (that were more about making a profit on their book sales than honesty) have already had to back track on this supposed new allegation which isn't new at all. It was by a former Clinton lawyer and the alleged victim can't remember it.

Unfounded. Fixed it for you.
