Sarah Sanders: New York Times Reporter Wrote ‘Ridiculous’ Ice-Throwing Story

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is going on offense against the story in the New York Times that Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh threw ice during a bar fight.

The Washington Times reports:

The White House is questioning the motivation of The New York Times reporter who uncovered Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh’s “ice throwing” incident from 1985.

The newspaper detailed how Judge Kavanaugh as a 21-year-old junior at Yale University was questioned by police about an altercation in a bar, including allegations that he threw ice “for some reason.”

The report fueled new calls to expand a reopened FBI background check of Judge Kavanaugh to include his drinking habits.

“Democrats desperately attack Judge Kavanaugh for throwing ice during college. What motivated New York Times reporter to write this ridiculous story? Throwing ice 33 years ago, or her opinion of Judge Kavanaugh in July?” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted Monday night.

She included a link to tweet by the reporter, Emily Bazelon.
