Harvard University's Undergraduate Council today joined students of Harvard Law School in calling for a "full and fair investigation" of sexual misconduct allegations against Brett Kavanaugh one day after the embattled U.S. Supreme Court nominee informed the Ivy League school he won't be back to teach his January course.

"We believe that Judge Kavanaugh's appointment as an HLS lecturer sends a message to law students, and in particular female students, that powerful men are above the law", it says.

President Donald Trump nominated Kavanaugh in July to fill the seat left by retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, and his confirmation to the nation's highest court seemed inevitable until three women came forward to allege that he sexually assaulted them or others in the 1980s. "HLS would be tarnished to have him on campus in any position of authority". Bustle has reached out to both Harvard Law School and the White House.


Kavanaugh's angry performance during his testimony, however, "cut against those recommendations".

A Harvard Law School spokeswoman confirmed Kavanaugh's decision to The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Hundreds of Harvard Law alumni signed a letter urging the university to remove Kavanaugh as a lecturer at the school, though the letter had not been submitted to administrators by the time of Claypoole's email, local media reported. A quick search no longer lists Kavanaugh among the listed faculty, though Kavanaugh's original page can still be seen on the Internet Archive. Jeff Flake, and gave the Federal Bureau of Investigation a week to investigate the sexual misconduct allegations. It was not immediately clear if Kavanaugh dropped out due to anticipation that he would be serving on the Supreme Court.
