Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) on Tuesday filed legislation calling on the House Judiciary Committee to begin an impeachment inquiry into Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. According to the Congresswoman, she made the move as a means of "supporting survivors."

Pressley said she believes Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez, which is why she filed the resolution.

"I believe Christine Blasey Ford. I believe Deborah Ramirez. It is our responsibility to collectively affirm the dignity and humanity of survivors," the Congresswoman said in a statement. "Sexual predators do not deserve a seat on the nation’s highest court and Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process set a dangerous precedent. We must demand justice for survivors and hold Kavanaugh accountable for his actions."

During an interview with CNN, Pressley referenced a new study that says one in 16 women's first sexual experience is rape as a link to the Kavanaugh case. 

"One of the reasons I ran for Congress is to fight for the healing and the justice of all survivors. One in 16 women – of course we know this is not a genderized crime – and sexual assault is a crime, but a crime disproportionally perpetuated onto women," Pressley said. "And one in 16 women's first sexual experience was rape. This is a public health crisis, an epidemic. I see it also as a social justice issue and it's deeply concerning that someone on the highest court in the land can have this many allegations."
