      The president of the United States has encouraged his most recent Supreme Court appointee to start suing people for libel.

      Donald Trump tweeted this advice today after a new book by two New York Times reporters, Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, revealed a new claim of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh.

      In The Education of Brett Kavanaugh, the coauthors reported that at least seven people heard former Yale undergraduate student Deborah Ramirez's account of alleged sexual assault.

      It's created a ruckus over social media, with Trump weighing in on the side of Kavanaugh.

      "The lies being told about him are unbelievable," Trump declared. "False Accusations without recrimination. When does it stop?

      "They are trying to influence his opinions," Trump continued. "Can't let that happen!"

      Others, however, are making scathing comments about the thoroughness of the FBI investigation.

      Republican senators relied on this probe when they confirmed Kavanaugh's appointment to the U.S. Supreme Court.
