There was more than just booze coursing through the veins of Ted Koppel’s son when he died in a stranger’s apartment in Washington Heights last month. According to coroners, “he died from acute intoxication due to the combined effects of alcohol; heroin; cocaine; diazepam, the generic form of Valium; and Levamisole, a drug used to cut other drugs.” It was ruled an accident. Andrew Wemberly, the stranger who befriended him and went on a drinking binge at his side, eventually taking him home to sleep it off, had said at the time: “There was a lot of alcohol. He didn’t take anything else [drugs] around me, and neither of us ate all day.” That dude’s not talking today.
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.
