Freshman Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) criticized Democrats’ renewed calls to impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and subsequently sabotage the federal judiciary.
“You know, they want to impeach Justice Kavanaugh, they want to pack the Supreme Court, I mean, talk about destroying any institution that they can’t control — it is really unbelievable,” Hawley said during an interview with Hill.TV on Monday. “This is a Democratic Party that increasingly is at war with the American Constitution.”
