    After a hard-fought battle over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation just over a year ago, the revelation of further sexual misconduct allegations against him has prompted 13 Democrats to push for his impeachment.

    “This is the reckoning, and gone are the days where we will be complicit and lackadaisical in the fact that this is an epidemic and survivors deserve healing and justice and everyone deserves due process,” Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) told CNN in September just after introducing a resolution in mid-September calling for Kavanaugh’s impeachment.

    Although the resolution’s odds of passing through Congress are long, 12 co-sponsors have signed onto the measure so far, including:

    Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.)

    Fellow members of the so-called “Squad” of progressive freshman congresswomen have joined Pressley in signing onto her resolution.
