Sen. Chris Coons warned fellow Democrats on Sunday that it is “premature” to talk about investigating or impeaching Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

To do so, the Delaware Democrat said, could harm his party's prospects in the November midterm elections.

“That's premature,” Coons, D-Del., said in a response to a question from host Chuck Todd on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “We are frankly just less than a month away from an election. Folks who feel very strongly one way or the other about the issues in front of us should get out and vote and participate.”

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., who is in line to be the chairman of the Judiciary Committee if Democrats take the House, said Friday he would open an investigation into accusations of sexual misconduct and perjury against Kavanaugh if Democrats win the House.

Coons said Sunday that such an effort would further divide the country after a bitter confirmation process.

“There's only ever been one justice that's been impeached,” Coons said, referring to Samuel Chase, who was impeached by the House in 1804 and acquitted by the Senate in 1805. “Talking about it at this point isn't necessarily healing us and moving us forward. The Senate's role in our politics is not to just reflect the country, but to help heal and lead the country and that's the course we should be on.”

Coons is a moderate Senate Democrat who helped convince some Republican colleagues to demand the FBI to investigate sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh before a confirmation vote. The FBI probe found no corroborating evidence, according to an executive summary, but Democrats accused Republicans of limiting its scope.
