“Last year the Kavanaugh nomination was rammed through the Senate without a thorough examination of the allegations against him,” Warren tweeted Sunday.

The Times reported that one of Kavanaugh's former male classmates witnessed him allegedly press his genitals against a woman without her consent. The allegation had not yet been investigated by the FBI, according to the Times. 

Kavanaugh has denied all of the allegations he has faced, calling them politically motivated. He also declined to answer questions about the new allegations to the Times.

“Now the Radical Left Democrats and their Partner, the LameStream Media, are after Brett Kavanaugh again, talking loudly of their favorite word, impeachment. He is an innocent man who has been treated HORRIBLY,” he tweeted. “Such lies about him. They want to scare him into turning Liberal!”
