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.

Yeah, no, there’s no evidence Justice Brett Kavanaugh lied.
As we noted, the ‘new claim’ is a dumpster fire.
And indeed it was Harris who was found to have lied during the Kavanaugh hearing by the Washington Post and Politifact.
Via The Hill:
Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler awarded Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) four Pinocchios in a Tuesday column, writing that she had selectively edited a video of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s comments about “abortion-inducing drugs” to argue he is against birth control.
Kessler wrote that in a tweet highlighting Kavanaugh’s comments, Harris did not make it clear that Kavanaugh was actually reiterating the plaintiff’s position in a 2013 court case. Instead, he wrote, she made it seem that Kavanaugh was offering his own opinion.
“The issue at hand is Kavanaugh’s reference to ‘abortion-inducing drugs,’” Kessler wrote. “A plain reading of his sentence, with its reference to ‘they said,’ suggests that he is merely reflecting the plaintiffs’ argument.”
He said Harris had omitted the words “they said” in a widely circulated tweet that said Kavanaugh’s comments were a “dog whistle for going after birth control.”
