It is important to remember that professional athletes often have so much going on in their lives that their public statements and endorsements are often haphazard and fleeting; quick statements that they don’t often understand or think about much, but that we all make a big deal out of anyway. It is especially important to remember this when you note that the Knicks’ Amar’e Stoudemire linked to Chris Dorner’s manifesto yesterday from his Twitter account, adding, “Interesting! This is a must-read!” Whatever your thoughts on the tweet, you can probably expect a retraction, deletion, and/or an apology within the next twelve hours. Though we’re not sure we understand Amar’e’s next tweet much more than that one, to be honest. Though it’s possible he is in fact a scientist in his spare time. Athletes: They’re just like your e-mail-forwarding aunt.
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.
