President Trump called out The New York Times on Monday after the newspaper made a major revision to an article about new sexual misconduct allegations against Justice Brett Kavanaugh, saying his Supreme Court pick is the one being "assaulted" by these late-breaking accounts.
Over the weekend, the Times published what was seen as a bombshell report that included a previously unknown allegation against Kavanaugh, only to later update the piece to note friends of the alleged victim said she did not recall the purported sexual assault. In the update, the Times also stated for the first time that the alleged victim refused to be interviewed.
“The one who is actually being assaulted is Justice Kavanaugh - Assaulted by lies and Fake News!” Trump said in a tweet, after quoting a "Fox & Friends" discussion of the Times update. “This is all about the LameStream Media working with their partner, the Dems.”
The original Times piece by Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, adapted from their forthcoming book, asserted that a Kavanaugh classmate, Clinton-connected nonprofit CEO Max Stier, "saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his pants down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student."
