Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) told CNN on Tuesday that “it’s deeply disturbing” for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to have “this many allegations” against him, explaining she had filed an impeachment resolution against him in order to “get to the truth.”

“It’s deeply disturbing that someone that serves on the highest court in the land could have this many allegations,” Pressley said.

The freshman lawmaker criticized as “fundamentally flawed” the FBI investigation and Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last September that examined an allegation of sexual assault against Kavanaugh ahead of his confirmation to the high court.

Pressley, a survivor of sexual assault, called on other members of the Democratic caucus to get behind her impeachment push, including Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who had urged the Massachusetts representative to “get real,” CNN reported.
