Antjuan Seawright, and Lili Gil Valetta respond.

The Democrats running for President, the fast Supreme court called Brett Kavanaugh ‘ s not inflamed indictment over the weekend are back down – despite The New York Times, the exhibition is a comprehensive revision of its blockbuster story, the requirements in the first place.

For the most part, the candidates are not even recognition of the history of update.

In the meantime, Rep. Jerry Nadler, the democratic leaders of the House Judiciary Committee, seemed to brush off his party’s calls to begin, the case against Kavanaugh said on a radio show on Monday: “We have our hands full with the impeachment of the President now.”


Many of the most important in 2020, the Democratic candidate for President, over the weekend in published statements calling for the Congress to accuse Kavanaugh, citing the Times reporting an unsubstantiated and controversial college-era allegations of sexual misconduct as the reason for the charges.

But late Sunday, the paper his portrait revised segmented blockbuster story is the fact that several friends of the alleged victim said, she said you heard, you could not take up the reported sexual assaults remind of the question


But that did not revise prompt Democrats or walk back to your calls: In one case, billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer called for impeachment proceedings after the times ” update.

“If the only way to start to the truth, an impeachment process for justice Kavanaugh, I support starting the process immediately,” Steyer said Monday.

Fox News has accomplished, the Democrats requested to ask the impeachment over the weekend, whether the candidates have changed their position in the light of the newspaper editors ‘ note. No one responded yet.


California Sen. Kamala Harris – who has not said over the weekend that Kavanaugh “must be accused – again in a new tweet Monday saying, “the reality of The Kavanaugh confirmation process, that it lacked any integrity — there has never been a meaningful investigation of these allegations. We need the truth.”

The Times piece by Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, adapted from their forthcoming book, argues that Kavanaugh’s classmates from the Clinton-connected non-profit CEO, Max Stier, “saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down to another drunken dorm party, where friends, pushed his penis in the hand of a student.”

The times, not to mention the bull-his work as a Clinton defender, or his legal battles with Kavanaugh during the Whitewater investigation. To discuss according to the times, the bull “designated senators, and the FBI is aware of this account” last year, during the Kavanaugh hearings, “but the FBI did not investigate, and Mr. bull has refused, in public.”

However, the times “article also originally mentioned that Pogrebin and Kelly’ s book found that the student in question, could not the alleged episode to remember.

In his update, the paper later said: “editors ‘ note: An earlier version of this article was adapted from a soon to be released book, not an element of a book-account in respect of a claim by a Yale classmate, the friends of Brett Kavanaugh shoved his penis in the hand of a schoolgirl in a drunken dorm party. The paper reported that the student refused to be interviewed and friends say that they don’t remember the incident. This information has been added to the article.”

Still, the previous reporting sparked calls for an avalanche of impeachment.

Former HUD Secretary Julian Castro tweeted: “It is clearer than ever that Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath. Should he be indicted. And the Congress should consider the failure of the Department of Justice to investigate to correct the matter.”

Massachusetts sen. Elizabeth Warren said: “Last year, the Kavanaugh nomination was rammed through the Senate without a thorough examination of the allegations against him Confirmation is not interfere with discharge, and these latest revelations. As the man who appointed him, accused Kavanaugh should.”


The former Texas Rep. Beto O’rourke, said: “Yesterday, we learned of another allegation against Brett Kavanaugh—a, we do not know, before he was confirmed because the Senate is forced to rush to the FBI, whose investigation for his nomination. We know that he lied under oath. Should he be accused.”


Sen. Cory Booker, D-N. J., tweeted, in part, “This new statement and additional evidence adds to a long list of reasons why Brett Kavanaugh, should not a court of justice. I stand with survivors, and countless other Americans, to demand, to begin impeachment proceedings.”

South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg said: “Kavanaugh should resign and if he does not, should accuse the house of him.”

On Capitol Hill, the news prompted outrage from Democrats, but whether or not that might translate to wait for a more dramatic investigation, remains.

In his interview with the “Brian teacher Show” on Monday, Nadler and his Committee focused on the impeachment of the President is to hit more. But he signaled openness to at least review the allegations against Kavanaugh. Pressed by the host, Nadler crack the FBI investigation into the allegations as a “sham” and said: “It could fall under our jurisdiction. We would have to see changes.”

Others on the campaign have expressed concerns, Kavanaugh, but does not explicitly call for the prosecution.

The former Vice-President, Joe Biden, said: “This weekend is the report in the New York Times, raises again profoundly troubling questions about the integrity of the confirmation process, the Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme court in the first place.”

Sen Bernie Sanders said he supports, after Kavanaugh all legal possibilities: “the revelations confirm what we already knew: During his hearing, Kavanaugh faced credible allegations and likely lied to the Congress. I will keep support all of the appropriate constitutional mechanism to bring him to justice.”

Sen. Amy Klobuchar stopped short of calling for impeachment, and instead posted a picture of Kavanaugh Prosecutor Christine Blasey Ford with the words, “Let us never forget, what looks like courage.”


The conservatives have ripped into Democrats for their calls:

“This is the weakest of the weak type of accusations. It really is a shameful attempt to revive these smears against judge Kavanaugh, the completely unfounded,” Carrie Severino, the founder of the Judicial crisis network, said recently a nice book on Kavanaugh, wrote on “Fox & Friends”.

Trump, for his part, suggested on Sunday, Kavanaugh should sue for defamation.

Still, other Democrats ramped up their criticism of Kavanaugh on Monday.

“It is not surprising to find that Kavanaugh, in a credible accused worthy of sexual assault, would secure to lie under oath to the Supreme Court seat,” tweeted New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “Because sexual violence is not a crime of passion – it’s about the abuse of power. He needs to be indicted.”
