U.S. Rep. Joe Neguse, awash with power after being elected to fill Gov. Jared Polis’s congressional seat, was captured on video bragging about his new committee assignment on Judiciary and plans to go after a sitting Supreme Court judge.

While other committees now chaired by Democrats are using their newfound power to help Americans STRIKE go after President Trump, like U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette, Neguse let it slip his panel is targeting Justice Brett Kavanaugh with accusations of perjury from his confirmation hearing.

The conservative activist group America Rising captured the comments during a meeting with constituents:

“There’s no question [Kavanaugh] committed perjury during the confirmation hearings and so forth,” Neguse said, responding to a question about the possibility of impeaching Kavanaugh. “I think the Judiciary Committee is likely to take that up.”

Did Kavanaugh lie about secret code words in his high school yearbook? How many beers he drank at a party? The part where he said he was glad to be appearing in front of the Judiciary Committee’s partisan firing squad?

This tactic is nothing more than a witch hunt to try and impeach a sitting Supreme Court justice for the simple crime of being nominated by Donald Trump.

We would hope the freshman Neguse would be showing some common sense out there during his first few weeks in Washington, D.C.

But, instead of working to reopen the government, Democrats and Neguse are trying their best to bring government and our judicial system to its knees.
