Political analyst Brit Hume defended Justice Brett Kavanaugh after a so-called “new allegation” of sexual misconduct surfaced against the Supreme Court Justice.

Hume called it “beyond disgusting” after The New York Times published an article over the weekend trying to “revive” an alleged incident during Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation process.

The New York Times reported a story about the account of a male Yale classmate of Brett Kavanaugh named Max Stier, who alleges that Kavanaugh, at the urging of some friends, performed an obscene act while mistreating a woman at a party.

The story, when it was published online Saturday, created a bizarre turn of events for the Times when it tweeted about the story, then retracted the tweet, only to retract the retraction and then offer an apology.

The update included the significant detail that several friends of the alleged victim, Harmon Joyce, said she did not recall the purported sexual assault in question at all. The Times also stated for the first time that the alleged victim refused to be interviewed, and has made no other comment about the episode, as reported by Fox News.

Brit Hume, however, took to Twitter on Sunday where he posted an article from Spectator entitled, “A fresh assassination of Brett Kavanaugh’s character” written by Roger Kimball. (Continued Below)

Along with the article he posted on Twitter, Brit Hume wrote, “This smear was disgusting the first time around. This attempt to revive it is beyond disgusting and speaks to the dishonesty of leading organs of the mainstream media. They are corrupt.”

Further, President Trump weighed in on Monday after Democratic presidential candidates Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Beto O’Rourke, Cory Booker, and Julian Castro, declared that Kavanaugh “must be impeached,” citing the allegation.

The President wrote on Twitter, “‘The New York Times walks back report on Kavanaugh assault claim.’ @foxandfriends The one who is actually being assaulted is Justice Kavanaugh – Assaulted by lies and Fake News! This is all about the LameStream Media working with their partner, the Dems.'” (Continued Below)

The President continued on Twitter and quoted former secret service agent Dan Bongino: “What’s happening to Justice Kavanaugh is a disgrace. This guy is not a good man, he is a great man. He has to go to his church with his family while these terrible reports are being written about him, a disgrace!” Dan Bongino @foxandfriends”

“Just Out: “Kavanaugh accuser doesn’t recall incident.” @foxandfriends DO YOU BELIEVE WHAT THESE HORRIBLE PEOPLE WILL DO OR SAY. They are looking to destroy, and influence his opinions – but played the game badly.”  The Commander in Chief added. “They should be sued!”

On Sunday, the President also suggested that Kavanaugh “should start suing people for liable, or the Justice Department should come to his rescue​.”

“Brett Kavanaugh should start suing people for libel, or the Justice Department should come to his rescue,” President Trump said, “The lies being told about him are unbelievable. False Accusations without recrimination. When does it stop? They are trying to influence his opinions. Can’t let that happen!”
