Top Democrats are preparing to impeach Brett Kavanaugh if the appeals court judge is confirmed to the United States Supreme Court, Axios reports.
The push for impeachment of the jurist is expected to be a 2020 campaign issue.
"The impeachment talk reflects the conclusion of Democrats and Republicans close to the Senate Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh's confirmation is more likely than not — and certainly more likely than it was 24 hours ago," according to Axios co-founder Mike Allen.
"Democrats tonight are depleted, raw, furious, and churning," explained an advisor to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's camp.
The "only question is who calls for it first," according to a Democratic strategist.
"What ugly times. We may be doomed," worried a GOP insider.
"If Kavanaugh is confirmed, Democrats could be expected to question the legitimacy of his swing Supreme Court vote. Congress degraded itself yesterday. And the Trump White House of course has serious credibility issues," Allen concluded.
