Trump Demands Bill Barr, DOJ Defend Kavanaugh For Baseless Attacks

3441

U.S. President Donald Trump rejected Democrats’ calls for impeaching Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Sunday after a new report that alleged sexual misconduct, encouraging Kavanaugh to sue for libel and suggesting the Justice Department could “rescue” him.

At least three Democratic presidential candidates called for Kavanaugh’s impeachment after the New York Times report.

The Times essay, drawn from an upcoming book written by the newspaper’s reporters, discussed a previously unreported account of Kavanaugh’s behavior as a freshman at Yale University that echoed allegations against him by former classmate Deborah Ramirez.

The new account from former classmate Max Stier describes Kavanaugh pushing his private parts into the hand of a female student at a party, according to the Times piece.

The report said the classmate notified U.S. senators and the FBI about the incident, but the FBI did not investigate. The FBI did not respond to a request for comment on the report.

“Brett Kavanaugh should start suing people for libel, or the Justice Department should come to his rescue,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

It was unclear what action the Republican president was advocating the Justice Department take.

Kavanaugh did not comment to the Times on Stier’s allegation. The Supreme Court press officers did not immediately return a request for comment.

Kavanaugh, a conservative appointed by Trump, was confirmed by the U.S. Senate in October after he denied accusations of sexual assault from three women.

After acrimonious hearings, the Senate confirmed his appointment to the high court by 50-48 vote, one of the tightest margins ever for a justice.

Trump did not mention the Times article but blamed “radical left Democrats” and the “LameStream Media” for going after Kavanaugh.

In a series of Twitter posts, he accused Democrats of threatening impeachment to influence Kavanaugh’s opinions on court cases.

“They want to scare him into turning Liberal!” he wrote.

Three Democrats running to replace Trump in 2020 called for Kavanaugh’s impeachment on Sunday.

“I sat through those hearings. Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people,” Senator Kamala Harris wrote on Twitter. “He must be impeached.”

“Confirmation is not exoneration, and these newest revelations are disturbing. Like the man who appointed him, Kavanaugh should be impeached,” Senator Elizabeth Warren said in another Twitter post.

Julian Castro, housing secretary under President Barack Obama, said the new allegation should be investigated.

“What’s become clear is that he should be impeached,” Castro told MSNBC. “Based on this new information, that’s certainly what it appears like – that he lied under oath.”

  1. The Judge doesn’t need defending. It is obvious what the idiots on the left are resorting to….and if there was any doubt…all you have to do is look at the 3 imbeciles quoted…Harris, Warren, and Castro. All three pathetic idiots.

    • HE SHOULD SUE HARRIS, WARREN AND CASTRO FOR THEIR LIES THAT WOULD STOP SOME OF THIS SHIT AND SHOW EVERYONE OF THEM THEY ARE LYING DEMOCRATS ALL LIE SOMEONE NEEDS TO STOP ALL THIS LYING

      • He should SUE the ones ACCUSING!! THAT would PUT A STOP TO IT!!! He is INNOCENT until PROVEN guilty!!! It is about TIME we started FORCING THE LIBS to DO JUST THAT in their ACCUSATIONS!!!

  2. Seems as though from what I read today the NY Times – has once again been caught with its pants down!
    Only the canary seems not to mind having a copy in the bottom of his cage – but really have to find something else he will do his business on

  3. exactly and Klamydia Harris of all people should talk. How do all these people’s followers even believe any of this Crap out of these people? Stupid stupid stupid All three of these liars are straight criminals and pedophiles so they shouldn’t even Be allowed to run for president anyway. Corruption simply CANNOT BECOME THE NORM IN AMERICAN POLITICS damn too late to be saying that huh?

  4. Accusations being spread by Hillary and Obama lawyer and DNC donor. NYT has to print a retraction that the supposed victim cannot remember any incident like this ever occurring.

    For this reason, libel and slander laws were made. Good lawyer put this leftist Demonrat lawyer bankrupt and reveal him to be a liar.

    • Time to take a .22 pistol and pop a cap in the back of sorass’ fucked up melon. Then cage all of his family and ship them to the middle east.524N

  5. The origination of that accusation against Justice Kavanaugh was a guy named Max Stier. Stier is a hard core leftist who, while at Yale, was on Bill Clinton’s re-election campaign during the Clinton impeachment hearings. Brett Kavanaugh was on Special Prosecutor Kenneth Starr’s impeachment staff. This was “pay back” by Max Stier for Clinton’s impeachment. Max Stier is a man without integrity.

  6. So where was this so called victim when they were having the nationally televised case? The slime was literally oozing out of the woodwork back then. But this victim decided to sit quietly until now? Apparently, the Democrats have found yet another low to add too their accomplishments.

  7. The Democrats are unfit to run anything. They are irrelevant and should be voted out of office in a huge Red Tsunami Wave come November 3, 2020. Why are we paying their salaries for attempting to sink the USA?

  8. The reason the democrats are pushing for Brett Kavanagh’s impeachment is because

    that’s a their acknowledging step in their direction of successfully impeaching President TRUMP

    they’ll do whatever/anything for some success in discrediting him however possible

    and the Republican Party had better not ever give in to the damned democrats political pressures on anything

    🎆❤👍TRUMPence👍❤🎆 successfully US Reelected assuredly
    Amen & Amen!!!

  9. They left a bit OUT of their false story.

    Max Stier was on Bill Clinton’s re-election campaign while his impeachment hearings were going on.

    At the SAME time, Brett Kavanaugh was on Special Prosecutor Kenneth Starr’s committee to impeach Bill Clinton for LYING to a federal judge. Bill Clinton DID win re-election but he WAS impeached for perjury. He lost his law license and SHOHLD have gone to jail.

    Max Stier’s “story” was payback to Brett Kavanaugh. There is NO credible evidence this event ever took
    place. Max Stier is a partisan leftist. Kavanaugh SHOULD sue him.

  10. this castro has the kind of detestable face
    he and his twin…his mother is born a communist and raised them
    as communist…he will not go far///people are beginning to hate
    or dislike him he disrespected biden badly..we all know biden
    is demented and will not be pres. but neither will the rest of that binch

  11. As our parents told us growing up “Don’t lie, one lie just leads to another!” Well that’s exactly what has happen to MSM! They need to keep it going to cover their previous lies. Compare it to a pyramid scheme. You need to keep lying to keep the scam going!

  12. If Democrats really believe all this harassment is helping their cause they are going to be sadly disappointed when they lose another election by a landslide. I can’t imagine any reasonable person thinking that they would want a President as unhinged as all of these Democratic Presidential Candidates. They have all been recorded on video as hypocrites who say one thing and then another depending on which way the political wind is blowing. They lie, they cheat, they contrive, and promise things the Country will never be able to afford without destroying the quality of life we are all used to in this Country, forgive college loans, give free health care to immigrants, put everyone on medicare, go green to the point we destroy our economy, undo the tax breaks that have put people to work and taken people off of welfare because they now have dignity saving jobs. These people really need psychological help as well as the people who believe all that BS.
