Donald Trump has once again come to the defense of Brett Kavanaugh. Trump’s latest support comes on Sunday after new allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced against the Supreme Court Justice.
This time around Trump went as far as to state that the Justice Department should “come to his rescue.”
“Now the Radical Left Democrats and their Partner, the LameStream Media, are after Brett Kavanaugh again, talking loudly of their favorite word, impeachment,” Trump ranted on Twitter. “ He is an innocent man who has been treated HORRIBLY. Such lies about him. They want to scare him into turning Liberal! ”
Trump later raised the idea that Kavanaugh “should start suing people for liable, or the Justice Department should come to his rescue .”
“The lies being told about him are unbelievable. False Accusations without recrimination,” the president continued. “When does it stop? They are trying to influence his opinions. Can’t let that happen! ”
The latest accusation against Kavanaugh was revealed by The New York Times on Saturday.
According to The Times, Max Stier, a former classmate at Yale University, has told officials at the FBI, as well as some senators that he allegedly witnessed Kavanaugh with his pants down at a party and his friends, pushed his penis into the hands of a female student.
The alleged incident is said to have happened back when Kavanaugh was a freshman. The FBI did not investigate the claims. Stier has not otherwise discussed it publicly, but two officials who have communicated with him corroborated the story to the Times.
Stier’s account echoes that of Deborah Ramirez, who had previously accused Kavanaugh of thrusting his penis into her face at a drunken party, prompting her to swat it away and accidentally touch it in the process.
During his confirmation process, Kavanaugh denied the allegation, saying it would have been the “talk of campus” if it were true. The Times, however, noted that “least seven people” heard about the incident long before Kavanaugh was a federal judge.
Kavanaugh was confirmed in a 50-48 Senate vote last October. Before he was confirmed he went through a contentious hearing when Christine Blassey Ford accused him of sexual misconduct during a high school party they attended in the 1980s.
Kavanaugh denied Ford’s accusations and declined to address the new allegations with the Times.
