President Donald Trump evoked the name of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh Saturday as he continues to defend himself against an effort by Democrats to impeach and remove him from office.
"After watching the disgraceful way that a wonderful man, @BrettKavanaugh, was treated by the Democrats, and now seeing first hand how these same Radical Left, Do Nothing Dems are treating the whole Impeachment Hoax, I understand why so many Dems are voting Republican!" Trump tweeted.
Kavanaugh endured a challenging fight in 2018 to get confirmed to the court amid decades-old allegations of sexual misconduct. No firm evidence was presented that proved the accusations and he was confirmed to the court in a close Senate vote of 50-48.
The House will take up two articles of impeachment against Trump in the coming week in the face of allegations that he used his office for political gain by trying to force Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, one of Trump's Democratic rivals in the 2020 election.
