New Accusation from Kavanaugh's College Years Emerges

Brett Kavanaugh

Trump, at the United Nations in NY, declared that Kavanaugh is "outstanding", and added, "I am with him all the way".

In a New Yorker report from Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer, Ramirez recounts an incident that she says occurred during the 1983-84 academic year, when both she and Kavanaugh were at Yale University.

Professor Christine Blasey Ford, who last week came forward as the woman alleging Mr Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in 1982, has agreed to testify about the allegation at a Senate committee hearing on Thursday.

Democrats again called for the FBI to investigate Ford's claims, a request that was unlikely to be met as President Donald Trump and Senate Republicans have said it's unnecessary. She accused him of attacking her and trying to remove her clothing while he was drunk at a party when he was 17 years old and she was 15.

Both Prof Ford and Mr Kavanaugh and his wife have reportedly received violent threats since the allegations came to light.

Ramirez said that what has stayed with her most forcefully is the memory of laughter at her expense from Kavanaugh and the other students.

The tentative accord could bring to a close days of high-stakes brinkmanship that have roiled Washington ahead of midterm elections and threated to jeopardize Kavanaugh's confirmation to the court. This claim is denied by all who were said to be present and is wholly inconsistent with what many women and men who knew Judge Kavanaugh at the time in college say.

Blasey alleged Kavanaugh pinned her down and groped her when they were teenagers at a small party in suburban Maryland in the early 1980s. "I don't think it was just 'Brett.' And I remember hearing and being mortified that this was out there".

Kavanaugh denied the accusation in a statement to The New Yorker yesterday that read: "This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen".

Trump Dismisses Allegations Against Brett Kavanaugh as 'Highly Unsubstantiated,' 'Totally Political'
A search on OpenSecrets.org reveals Keyser's only political donation has been to former Democratic senator Byron Dorgan. This is a smear, plain and simple", he said in a statement issued by the White House Sunday night.

The second claim against Kavanaugh dates to his first year at Yale University.

"This is a smear, plain and simple", Kavanaugh said.

Farrow, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting on sexual assault allegations agains Harvey Weinstein, told CNN there were several reasons he believed Ramirez.

President Donald Trump was told about the new sexual misconduct allegations about Brett Kavanaugh in the New Yorker hours before the explosive publication Sunday, according to a White House official. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the matter.

"I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name - and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building - against these last-minute allegations", he said in a statement released by the White House.

Conway's rhetoric echoes Hillary Clinton's 1998 description of allegations that her husband, President Bill Clinton, had had affairs. "They were always, like, "Debbie's here!,' and then they'd get into their 'Lord of the Flies" thing", she told the New Yorker.

The agreement and the latest accusation set the stage for a dramatic showdown as Kavanaugh and Ford each tell their side of the story.

Kavanaugh's nomination was already in a perilous state ahead of a hearing planned for Thursday on an allegation by California professor Christine Blasey Ford that he sexually assaulted her at a high school party three decades ago. Ramirez is cited by the New Yorker as saying Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a drunken dormitory party.

A second allegation of sexual misconduct has emerged against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a development that has further imperiled his nomination to the Supreme Court. They could also use Republican staff attorneys on the committee. When she protested the alleged assault, Ford said, he covered her mouth.
