President Donald Trump in a Sunday morning tweet said “Radical left Democrats” and the “LameStream Media” want to scare Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh into “turning Liberal.”

“Now the Radical Left Democrats and their Partner, the LameStream Media, are after Brett Kavanaugh again, talking loudly of their favorite word, impeachment,” he tweeted. “He is an innocent man who has been treated HORRIBLY. Such lies about him.”

“They want to scare him into turning Liberal!” Trump added.

The president’s tweet came after the New York Times reported that a male former classmate said he witnessed Kavanaugh exposing himself and pressing his genitals against a woman, without her consent.

The New York Times reported Saturday on a new accusation about an alleged episode in Kavanaugh’s freshman year at Yale:

We also uncovered a previously unreported story about Mr. Kavanaugh in his freshman year that echoes Ms. [Deborah] Ramirez’s allegation. A classmate, 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. Mr. Stier, who runs a nonprofit organization in Washington, notified senators and the F.B.I. about this account, but the F.B.I. did not investigate and Mr. Stier has declined to discuss it publicly. (We corroborated the story with two officials who have communicated with Mr. Stier.)

It is not clear where the “two officials” are from, nor what part of the story they “corroborated.”

President Trump in a follow-up tweet early Sunday said Kavanaugh should “start suing people for libel,” suggesting that the Justice Department should “come to his rescue.”

“The lies being told about him are unbelievable. False Accusations without recrimination. When does it stop?” he asked. “They are trying to influence his opinions. Can’t let that happen!”
