Over the weekend, the New York Times mentioned a previously unreported allegation about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s conduct while a student at Yale University. But there were some big problems with the accusation.
First, the person alleging a different lewd incident involving Kavanaugh did not speak to the New York Times. The reporters in the story, who are also set to release a book on Kavanaugh, only spoke to people who say they are familiar with the accusation.
Even more shocking, the Times initially failed to report that the alleged victim in this story has no recollection of the incident in question. The Times finally added that piece of information after being called out by Mollie Hemingway, a senior editor at The Federalist.
Hemingway and Judicial Crisis Network Chief Counsel Carrie Severino are the authors of the #1 bestseller “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court.”
In this interview with Greg Corombos, Hemingway and Severino discuss this latest attempt to accuse Justice Kavanaugh and why they are not at all surprised at this new effort to sully his reputation.
They also discuss the long-term goals of Democrats with respect to the Supreme Court and the federal judiciary, and they reveal the immense political pressure applied to one of Christine Blasey Ford’s high school friends last year to verify Ford’s initial accusation against Kavanaugh – even though she knew nothing about it.
