Unhinged Sen. Merkley Calls on DOJ to Press Perjury Charges Against Justice Brett Kavanaugh (Audio)

Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) joined several far left leaders who believe the solution to Republican dominance is more unhinged behavior and antics.

Merkley, a far left senator from Oregon, filed a restraining order against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month to stop the senate vote on Brett Kavanaugh.

Now Merkley wants the Department of Justice to press perjury charges against Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
This is the modern day Democrat Party at work.

 

Merkeley made the comments during a conversation with “Deconstructed Live.”

The comments were posted at The Intercept.

Mehdi Hassan: Jeff Merkley, it’s less likely that Democrats are going to win the Senate, but even if you do, you’re not going to have the two-thirds super majority that you need to impeach a Supreme Court justice. So, what do Democrats do in the face of the most right-wing reactionary and tainted Supreme Court in modern American history, just roll over? What’s the solution? Ro mentions reforming. Are you on that train?

Sen. Jeff Merkley: Well, let’s start with the proposition that the Justice Department could obviously under a different leader than President Trump, proceed to pursue felony charges against Brett Kavanaugh for perjury before the US Senate.

Mehdi Hassan: And would you be pushing for that from the Senate?

Sen. Jeff Merkley: Absolutely and we really have to wrestle with the court because, here is the situation – the court is no longer a panel of wise, individuals weighing the provisions of the constitution against each other. It is now the most powerful legislative body and it is a legislative body controlled by and for the powerful rather than by and for the people. And if we don’t take on the issues of gerrymandering, if we don’t take on the issues of voter suppression, dark money in campaigns, then we’re going to lose forever more to the one percent and the court’s right at the heart of all those key issues.
