A real-life nightmare is about to end for one Derrick Deacon, a Jamaican national convicted for a Brooklyn murder he didn’t commit, who did 24 years in prison before a jury in a retrial found him not guilty on Monday. “There was never a shred of evidence against Derrick Deacon,” the jury foreperson told the New York Daily News, after the nine-minute deliberation that cleared him. The most frustrating part: The FBI informant whose information cleared Deacon first came forward with it in 2001.
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.
