Scott Wartman Cincinnati Enquirer Published 8:16 AM EST Nov 16, 2018 Rep. Steve Chabot, fresh off a tough re-election campaign, now has a new battle. At stake is the top Republican spot on the powerful House Judiciary Committee, a key committee where any investigations or impeachment of President Donald Trump would begin.

By Amanda Terkel At least five Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee are willing to investigate Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Reps. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) and Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) told HuffPost they are now joining the colleagues in pushing for a probe. “Someone committed perjury under oath in the Senate Judiciary Committee and I think it was Judge Kavanaugh and therefore he should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and should not serve as a judge on any court,” said Gutiérrez in a comment to HuffPost Friday. Gutiérrez is retiring at the end of his term so will not be present for the next Congress. They join Reps. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) and Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), who is the ranking member of the committee. Any credible investigation of the accusations against Kavanaugh must … [Read more...] about House Judiciary Committee Democrats Ready To Investigate Brett Kavanaugh
