NYT reporter behind Kavanaugh article was 'in his freshman year dorm' at Yale
Washington Examiner ^ | 9-17-2019 | Mike Brest

Posted on 09/17/2019 3:18:55 PM PDT by servo1969

One of the two New York Times reporters behind the much-maligned article detailing a new accusation of sexual misconduct against Brett Kavanaugh acknowledged that she knew the Supreme Court justice in college.

Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly adapted a story from their upcoming book for an article in the New York Times about Kavanaugh. The piece, which was published on Saturday, alleged that one of Kavanaugh's classmates at Yale University said he made inappropriate sexual contact with a female student. However, the article failed to mention that the female student who was the alleged victim has no recollection of the supposed event and declined to be interviewed.

Pogrebin appeared on WMAL's "Mornings on the Mall" to discuss the omitted details Tuesday morning, and she acknowledged that she and Kavanaugh were both in Yale University's class of 1987.

"I was in Brett's class at Yale," she admitted. "It didn't influence it. We weren't friends. I knew him to kind of say hello."

Unbelievable.
No one at the Times thought that was worth mentioning?
Pogrebin (one of the authors of the article!) was classmates with Kavanaugh!
Conflict of Interest? Anyone?
We're they in competing social circles?
Is there possibly a personal vendetta?
IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW WELL THEY KNEW ONE ANOTHER!
This was a glaring omission!

I think Justice Kavanaugh should be made the Chief Justice. Then he could really be a Big Swinging Richard.

Most important point:

” the female student who was the alleged victim has no recollection of the supposed event and declined to be interviewed. “

Then the article should never have been written. Lies and more lies.

OK, off topic but I couldn’t help noticing the authors name,
Mike Brest, and wondering what he had to put up with in school.

It could have been worse I suppose, his name could have been Mike Hunt.

No problem! they have SEVEN other witnesses!

New Kavanaugh book says seven people back up Deborah Ramirez allegation. Who are they?

So she wanted to notice him.

So she was pissed as hell and remembered.

She was contacted by the DNC as she knew women who have might have met Brett.
She has been in on this conspiracy since the beginning.

Knowing Kavanaugh in college does not give this F-dog cover for telling lies.

They lied, they got caught, and again no one is really surprised.

He said, she said.

Lots of claims that die on the vine.

NO way of proving it and how many years after the fact?

Pffftttt.....

Scandalous is being generous. First the victim was drunk and doesn’t remember being “assaulted” at all, then the 7 witnesses turn out to be biased 2nd and 3rd hand accounts at best, now the co-author was present at Yale, and a classmate of Brett? And all of this omitted in the NYT story? What other shoes will drop? The NYT is losing serious credibility here. Not that they had any with me, but they were believed by many...

My brother and I were in the same dorm one year, and we saw each other approximately twice.

He was in college and I was in a dorm high school program.

People don’t connect or know squat simply because they are in the same dorm.

This means nothing.
