Harris asked House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) in a letter to establish a task force to investigate the allegations and look into whether the then-Supreme Court nominee lied to Congress during his testimony last year. 


The letter comes after Nadler dismissed calls for Kavanaugh’s impeachment, arguing that the panel was too tied up with its investigation into President TrumpDonald John TrumpSenate advances public lands bill in late-night vote Warren, Democrats urge Trump to back down from veto threat over changing Confederate-named bases Esper orders ‘After Action Review’ of National Guard’s role in protests MORE. 

“I understand that the House Judiciary Committee has limited resources and many other responsibilities,” Harris wrote in the letter. “However, in the past, congressional committees have dedicated resources and established structures to pursue serious cases of misconduct—including by creating a task force and retaining outside counsel to help lead impeachment inquiries.” 

The New York Times reported last week that a former Kavanaugh classmate said he saw an incident in which the now-Supreme Court justice exposed himself at a party and that other students pushed Kavanaugh’s genitals into the hand of a female student, apparently without her consent. However, the publication issued a correction on Monday, saying that friends of the woman allegedly involved in the incident say she does not remember it.
