The latest accusations against Justice Brett Kavanaugh presented another unity moment for conservatives who may disagree about supporting President Donald Trump, but managed to unite in 2018 when Kavanaugh was accused of sexual misconduct as a young man.
Fighting back against the Kavanaugh smears is the only thing that united conservatives in years. Yes, by all means open that can of worms back up folks. Real winning strategy for 2020.

In a New York Times story published Saturday, reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly claimed to have contacted seven people who can corroborate 2018 Kavanaugh accuser Deborah Ramirez’s story. The Times story also includes a new accusation by Max Stier, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh’s who recounts friends pushing “his penis into the hand of a female student.” The alleged victim, Tracy Harmon Joyce, reportedly doesn’t remember the incident, according to several of her friends, and thus far has refused to talk about the accusation.

As they did in 2018, conservatives were quick to take to Twitter to defend Kavanaugh on Sunday:
If they want to re-litigate Kavanaugh, bring ???? it ???? on ????

• Liberal activist A says that Kavanaugh assulted lady B back when he was in college.
• The @nytimes contacts lady B.
• Lady B tells @nytimes she has no idea what liberal activist A is talking about.
• @nytimes publishes story without comments from Lady B.

From the article: “The authors omit the fact that the alleged victim has no memory of the alleged incident.” https://t.co/GGmvmU7ZLW

The Times is too lazy to come up with a new hoax to attack Kavanaugh, so they are just dusting this old one off and acting like it’s new https://t.co/bgTdoASIAb

Why is it that Beto’s past history of burglary and drunk driving is off limits to talk about when he runs for the Presidency yet the Democrats spent 2 months talking about a manufactured lie of something that didn’t happen in high school when Kavanaugh was up for confirmation?

The latest NYT smear against Kavanaugh comes third-hand from a…Clinton defense attorney. But that’s not all. The alleged victim has zero recollection of the Clinton attorney’s story. https://t.co/nU5CmAsLvL

NY Times breaks wind, not news w/ new Kavanaugh story- sources are “someone who knew someone who heard something from someone they didn’t know 30 yrs ago might have been someone who thinks they saw something but were too drunk to remember who, when, how, where, what or why.”

The efforts to perform do-overs on Russia-Trump and evil teen Kavanaugh are going to fall on apathetic/deaf ears on everyone but those in the bubble.
