MSNBC political analyst Jonathan Alter accused President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of leaking to the press during Ken Starr’s 1990s investigation into former President Clinton on Monday.

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell asked Alter about whether the absences of Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) at Trump’s nomination of Kavanaugh was a sign of hope for people trying to block the nomination.

“Well, I think they’re taking a wait and see attitude,” Alter said.

Alter then said that Americans don’t know what Kavanaugh did while he served in former President George W. Bush’s administration or what he did when he was on Stars staff.

“I covered some of that at the time 20 years ago, and what I heard at the time, don’t have proof of this, is that Brett Kavanaugh was leaking,” Alter said. “Unlike Bob Mueller, Ken Starr’s staff routinely leaked details of that investigation.”

O’Donnell tried to quickly change the subject but Alter doubled down on his allegations of leaking.
