Trump attacks the New York Times over Kavanaugh editorial

Supreme court nominee Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Judiciary Committee on Sept. 4 2018 Supreme court nominee Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Judiciary Committee on Sept. 4 2018

The New York Times reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had knowledge of the additional allegation but did not investigate it thoroughly, Harris wrote in the letter to Nadler.

During those last 60 years, the paper has become more openly liberal. "Nearly all of the stories the New York Times has done are inaccurate and wrong", Trump wrote in a tweet Monday.

The plague of smears against Justice Kavanaugh can then be understood as the first step in the Left's post-Ginsberg strategy: Unleash this plague to intimidate Justice Brett Kavanaugh and delegitimize any decision the Supreme Court renders in its aftermath, perhaps even setting up a constitutional crisis if Democrat-controlled states, such as New York, California, New Jersey, etc. refuse to abide by the Court's decision on the Second Amendment or abortion. Cory Booker, former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke - immediately called for Kavanaugh's impeachment following the Sunday Times article that mentions another graphic sexual misconduct allegation against the justice from his college days. "A classmate, Max Stier, saw Mr. Kavanaugh with his trousers down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student".

But there was a problem.

Mollie Hemingway, a senior editor at The Federalist, got an advance copy of the book. Kavanaugh denied that the incident happened. "Seems, I don't know, significant".

The story gets very ugly from here.

"In the editing process, I think there was some debate about naming her because the Times has a history of not necessarily naming a victim, and so, in the course of that reporting, I think a judgment was made to omit her name and that sentence also included the fact that she didn't remember it", Pogrebin explained. The female victim declined to be interviewed by the book's authors, and her friends told the authors she does not recall the incident. "That information has been added to the article", the note said. Trump immediately spun the Times' editorial error into proof that you can't trust the media, including its allegations against him.

New York prosecutors subpoena Trump tax returns World News
Vance's office declined to comment Monday on the tax return subpoenas, which were first reported by the New York Times . The U.S. attorney's office in NY informed a court last month that it was finished investigating the payments.

This has some major consequences: this sets the precedent that both the 9th Circuit and the US Supreme Court, will stop activist judges from exceeding their authority by using nationwide injunctions to derail national executive branch policy. They fail to share with readers in the story the fact that Stier was a member of Bill Clinton's legal team at the same time that Kavanaugh was working for independent counsel Kenneth Starr on the other side of the Monica Lewinsky investigation.

This wasn't an accident. The article was later edited to include the line "the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say she does not recall the episode", Kelly said. They knew that they were lying by omission and they did it anyway.

Now here's Carrie Severino, the other author of the book "Justice On Trial", talking about the chain, how this piece of intelligence actually becomes a story, [and] how the sources pass it along.

"The New York Times is now blaming an editor for the frightful mistake they made in trying to destroy or influence Justice Brett Kavanaugh".

Keyser's statement is significant, not only because it alleges witness tampering, but because all of the people that Ford identified as being at the party where she was allegedly assaulted have said they do not remember the party having even occurred. And yet they let the story run, saying nothing to anyone until they were found out.

Here's the bottom line: The New York Times deliberately withheld information that shot holes in their salacious story.
