Ocasio-Cortez renews impeachment call amid probe involving Trump's Scotland property Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) renewed calls to impeach President Trump Friday shortly after reports emerged of a House investigation into a stop a military crew made at his Turnberry resort in Scotland.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Monday called for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's impeachment following a new allegation of sexual assault against him published in The New York Times.

"This was almost a year ago. It is unsurprising that Kavanaugh, credibly accused of sexual assault, would lie under oath to secure a Supreme Court seat," she tweeted along with a video of her at a rally.

"Because sexual assault isn't a crime of passion - it's about the abuse of power. He must be impeached."

The Times published a book excerpt Saturday reporting that a male former classmate claims to have witnessed Kavanaugh expose himself at a party in college, where friends pushed his genitals against a woman without her consent.

The latest allegation by nonprofit owner Max Stier, which had not previously been made public, was reported to the FBI during Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation process last year but was not investigated by the FBI.

On Monday the Times issued a correction saying that "the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident."

Several prominent Democrats, including some 2020 presidential candidates, have called for Kavanaugh's impeachment from the Supreme Court in light of the new allegation.

His confirmation process last fall was particularly contentious because of multiple sexual misconduct allegations made against him, but he was ultimately confirmed by a 50-48 margin in the Senate.

Kavanaugh has vehemently denied all previous allegations against him, and he declined to answer questions about the new allegations to the Times on Saturday.
