"What we saw instead was a process that failed to properly acknowledge and believe the survivors of sexual assault and misconduct," she wrote. "That process ultimately failed people across the country, especially women."

The public call for action comes 10 days after Harris addressed a formal letter requesting the inquiry to House Judiciary Committee chairman Jerrold Nadler. The request, she wrote, should focus on "how and why" last year's FBI investigation was "limited in scope"; FBI interviews during the supplemental background investigation; how honest Kavanaugh was throughout his Senate confirmation process; and any information that potential witnesses to the alleged sexual assaults could provide.

Harris' criticism of Kavanaugh comes after The New York Times published an op-ed on Sept. 14 about Deborah Ramirez, who also accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct last year, and an unnamed woman who also allegedly was assaulted by Kavanaugh. The opinion piece came under fire after releasing a correction the following day stating the female student in question declined to be interviewed and her friends stated she does not remember the incident.

Despite the controversial story, other Democratic presidential contenders, including Elizabeth Warren, Julián Castro, Corey Booker, Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg, have also called for Kavanaugh's impeachment.
