(CNBC) -- Senator Kamala Harris on Sunday called for the impeachment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh after an article in the New York Times surfaced a previously unreported allegation of sexual misconduct against the justice when he was a undergraduate at Yale University.
“I sat through those hearings. Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people,” Harris wrote. “He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. He must be impeached.”
On Saturday, former Obama housing secretary and presidential candidate Julían Castro also called for impeachment.
