Second woman makes allegation against Kavanaugh

Second woman makes allegation against Kavanaugh

A second woman has come forward alleging sexual misconduct by embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, days before his scheduled testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee in response to a previous allegation of sexual assault.

At least four Democratic senators have received information about Ms Ramirez's allegation, the magazine said, of whom at least two have begun investigating it.

Trump, at the United Nations for his second General Assembly meeting, called the allegations unfair and unsubstantiated, made by accusers who come "out of the woodwork".

Additionally, we can't look past the far left-wing groups and agitators that are behind the smear campaign against Brett Kavanaugh.

"I am with him all the way".

Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee were notified of Ramirez's claims, and Ramirez and Democrats are now calling for an FBI investigation.

What we've been waiting for: In gross but less than shocking news, a second sexual assault allegation against Brett Kavanaugh has surfaced. She added that she recalled Kavanaugh next to her, pulling up his trousers.

According to The New York Times, the federal judge has calendars from the summer of 1982 he plans to share with senators showing he was out of town most of that time with no indication of the party of concern.

That's been followed by a new claim against Kavanaugh by another woman.

The classmate independently recalled numerous same details Ramirez told The New Yorker about the incident.

On Sunday, the New Yorker reported that Deborah Ramirez, a classmate of Kavanaugh's at Yale University, said he exposed himself at a party when they were both first-year students.

"This is a smear, plain and simple", Kavanaugh said in a statement issued through the White House.

On Sunday, Senator Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the judiciary committee, urged the panel to halt proceedings in light of the latest allegation. Republican senators had said it would be inappropriate for a witness to dictate who would be called. Taylor Foy, a Judiciary spokesman, complained that Democrats "actively withheld information" from the Republicans.

The New Yorker said it contacted Ramirez after learning of a possible incident with Kavanaugh.

Avenatti said he would provide additional evidence in the coming days.

The Washington Post reports Saturday that Christine Blasey Ford told them that Leland Keyser was at that high school party.

The Associated Press tried reaching Ms Ramirez at her home in Boulder, Colorado.

The high-stakes public hearing on Thursday will be to air out her decades-old sexual assault claim against Kavanaugh.

The Times had interviewed several dozen people over the past week in an attempt to corroborate her story, and could find no one with firsthand knowledge. Deborah Ramirez, a classmate from Yale, says that at a dorm party when both were freshmen Kavanaugh pulled down his trousers and pushed his penis in her face when she was drunk.

Kavanaugh's nomination hangs precariously.

The tentative deal capped a day of frenetic developments, with time running out for Trump to get his hand-picked conservative judge confirmed - thereby tilting the Supreme Court firmly to the right for years to come - before November elections when Republicans risk losing control of Congress. In other words, Kavanaugh is the scapegoat for all pro-life white men. All three told investigators that they had no recollection of the evening in question, the committee said.

"She added afterward, she remembered hearing a person shout from down a hallway, "'Brett Kavanaugh just put his penis in Debbie's face'".

Kavanaugh was questioned by committee staff last week.

The South Carolina Republican had earlier told Fox News Sunday that "I hope she comes".

"Let's all remember that Dr. Ford is not on trial, rather Judge Kavanaugh is seeking a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court", said Sen.

Both spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to discuss private conversations. Meanwhile, Republicans viewed Ford's requests as a way to delay voting on President Donald Trump's nominee.

"You chose to sit on the allegations until a politically opportune moment", a furious Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) scolded Feinstein in a letter dated September 19.
