    FILE - House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., conducts a committee markup titled Resolution for Investigative Procedures, on September 12, 2019.

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., responded to calls for an investigation into Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in light of new sexual misconduct allegations by saying that the panel has "our hands full with impeaching the president," NBC News reported.

    In a radio interview with WNYC on Monday, Nadler was asked if he’d be concerned with Democrats thinking he’s not taking the Kavanaugh allegations seriously enough. He said his committee has too much on its plate.

    "We have our hands full with impeaching the president right now and that’s going to take up our limited resources and time for a while," Nadler said.

    Over the weekend, a pair of New York Times reporters in an opinion-section article previewing their upcoming book on Kavanaugh's confirmation said they found new corroboration for accusations that Kavanaugh exposed himself to Deborah Ramirez, a classmate at Yale. NBC News has not verified that reporting.
