President Donald Trump is calling for the resignation of all journalists at The New York Times involved in the Brett Kavanaugh “SMEAR” story, claiming the reporting has ruined the “Old Grey Lady’s” reputation.

The Times over the weekend published a story of a new allegation of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh from his time as a student at Yale.

The claim hinged on the recollection of a Yale classmate who the news outlet reported contacted the FBI and lawmakers during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing. The essay was based on a forthcoming book written by two Times reporters.

But in the book, "The Education of Brett Kavanaugh," the woman declined to be interviewed. Moreover, her friends said she did not recall the incident.

“I call for the Resignation of everybody at The New York Times involved in the Kavanaugh SMEAR story, and while you’re at it, the Russian Witch Hunt Hoax, which is just as phony! They’ve taken the Old Grey Lady and broken her down, destroyed her virtue and ruined her reputation,” Trump tweeted.

“She can never recover, and will never return to Greatness, under current Management. The Times is DEAD, long live The New York Times!” he added.

The Times issued an editors’ note on Sunday that reads: “An earlier version of this article, which was adapted from a forthcoming book, did not include one element of the book's account regarding an assertion by a Yale classmate that friends of Brett Kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party. The book reports that the female student declined to be interviewed and friends say that she does not recall the incident. That information has been added to the article.”
