Impeaching Kavanaugh rouses progressive Democrats after confirmation

Many Trump allies now take it for granted that Democrats will try to bring down not only Kavanaugh but the president if a blue wave materializes in November.

“This is absolutely a scrimmage for impeachment,” said Michael Caputo, a former Trump campaign adviser. “I believe they will try to impeach Brett Kavanaugh, I believe they will try to impeach President Trump.”

But many liberals think impeaching Kavanaugh, or even talking about it, is not only bad politics, but dangerous for democracy.

“That is not happening anytime soon,” said Jim Manley, a former aide to Harry Reid, the former Democratic Senate leader. “I really wish folks would stop this talk of impeaching Kavanaugh and keep the focus on where it belongs” — the midterm elections.
