Eliot Spitzer has been not-so-subtly trying to re-craft his public image lately, as he passed over the one-year anniversary of his spectacular fall from grace and ouster from the governor’s mansion. He’s been holding court at parties, writing columns and appearing as a financial expert on television, and he even subjected himself to an exhaustive Newsweek profile. But until last night, he’d yet to have stepped out arm-in-arm with his wife, Silda Wall Spitzer. In fact, the last time we remember them posing together in front of cameras at an event was during that nightmarish press conference during which he admitted to cheating on her. They look significantly more happy here — though then again, it would be hard to imagine anyone looking less happy than they did back then. They’re even doing the two-finger hand hold! Is it weird that a little thing like that makes us believe they’re still in love?
Last year the Kavanaugh nomination was rammed through the Senate without a thorough examination of the allegations against him. Confirmation is not exoneration, and these newest revelations are disturbing. Like the man who appointed him, Kavanaugh should be impeached.
I sat through those hearings. Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people. He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. He must be impeached.
It’s more clear than ever that Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath. He should be impeached. And Congress should review the failure of the Department of Justice to properly investigate the matter.
Yesterday, we learned of another accusation against Brett Kavanaugh—one we didn’t find out about before he was confirmed because the Senate forced the F.B.I. to rush its investigation to save his nomination. We know he lied under oath. He should be impeached.
