You won’t believe who tried to ruin Brett Kavanaugh’s life with this sex scandal charge
The New York Times tried to take down Brett Kavanaugh with a new charge of sexual misconduct.
Democrats immediately seized on the story to demand Congress impeach Justice Kavanaugh.
And you won’t believe who tried to ruin Brett Kavanaugh’s life with this sex scandal charge.
Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly’s explosive New York Times essay claimed that at a college party Brett Kavanaugh pulled down his pants and two friends pushed his penis into a female student’s hands.
What the editors clipped out of the story was that the female student had no recollection of this incident.
But what was more disturbing was who was behind this charge.
Pogrebin and Kelly used former Kavanaugh classmate Max Stier as their source for this claim.
And Stier has a long partisan history of working against Brett Kavanaugh that should have made them skeptical of his allegation.
Stier, 53, served on the team defending Clinton, while Kavanaugh served on Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr’s team that was investigating Clinton. As Yale Daily News put it:
In 1994, Kavanaugh joined the legal team, led by Kenneth Starr, that was looking into President Bill Clinton’s real estate dealings as part of the Whitewater investigation. Later that decade, Kavanaugh co-wrote the Starr Report, which established broad grounds for Clinton’s impeachment.
Those proceedings pitted Kavanaugh against a former Yale classmate, Max Stier ’87, a fellow member of Stiles College who was one of several attorneys representing Clinton during the investigation.
The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway noted in a piece that during those proceedings Stier had “worked closely with David Kendall,” who would later defend Hillary Clinton against allegations of illegally handling classified information.
In addition to defending the Clintons during Whitewater, Stier also married U.S. Attorney Florence Yu Pan.
Pan was a Democrat donor who was nominated for a federal judgeship under Barack Obama.
The Republican Senate blocked the appointment.
Pogrebin and Kelly concealing Stier’s long history of Democrat Party activism and legal work was another example of the type of journalistic malpractice that has come to define The New York Times and the rest of the Fake News Media during Donald Trump’s time in office.
