Trump says Kavanaugh is the one 'actually being assaulted' following new allegation of sexual assault
President Donald Trump again defended Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Monday, assailing a news report over the weekend that has prompted calls for a renewed investigation and even impeachment of the jurist.
"The one who is actually being assaulted is Justice Kavanaugh," Trump tweeted. "Assaulted by lies and Fake News! This is all about the LameStream Media working with their partner, the Dems."
Citing a report on the morning program "Fox & Friends, Trump also tweeted "'The New York Times walks back report on Kavanaugh assault claim.'"
