Brett Kavanaugh Accused of Sexual Misconduct By a Second Woman - Hit & Run

5 2018 Judge Brett Kavanaugh testifies during the second day of his US Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing to be an Associate Justice on the

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh faces a second allegation of sexual misconduct after another woman came forward accusing him of inappropriate sexual behaviour during his college years at Yale University.

A woman named Deborah Ramirez claims that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a party at Yale University in the 1980s when they were both students there.

MARTIN: The New York Times today says they knew about the Ramirez allegation but didn't break the story because there were so many holes in it. In addition, some of us knew Debbie long after Yale, and she never described this incident until Brett's Supreme Court nomination was pending. Those calendars, he says, don't show a party consistent with Ford's description of the gathering in which she says he attacked her, The New York Times reported Sunday.

"I can tell you that some women do not come forward because they fear not being believed, and a lot of other women don't come forward because of other women who make false accusations", Conway said. "This is a smear, plain and simple".

White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec told Fox News: "This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man".

"This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man".

The White House is approaching Ford's potential testimony with trepidation, nervous that an emotional performance might not just damage Kavanaugh's chances but could further energize female voters to turn out against Republicans in November.

In the #MeToo era, when accounts by women of past sexual abuse have brought down a string of previously powerful men, Trump's defiant stand could not be more divisive, appalling many, but likely stirring his Republican base frustrated at what it sees as political correctness run amok.

Accuser of US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to testify next week
Christine Blasey Ford's accusations and the standoff over the terms of her appearance have left Kavanaugh's confirmation in limbo. Ford and deprive her of the ability to make a considered decision that has life-altering implications for her and her family".

"No innuendo has been too low, no insinuation too dirty", Hatch said in a statement, adding that the committee should proceed with its Thursday hearing. This comes days before Kavanaugh is expected to testify in front of a Senate committee to defend himself against an allegation of sexual assault.

It might be hard to remember this as Democrats and the media throw around phrases like "second accuser" and "attempted sexual assault" and "exposing himself" against the Supreme Court nominee. Kavanaugh denies the claim.

Ms Ford's lawyers Debra Katz and Lisa Banks had said that many aspects of Mr Grassley's latest offer were "fundamentally inconsistent" with the committee's promise of a "fair, impartial investigation".

Ramirez admitted to New Yorker reporters Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer that she had been drinking and that she has gaps in her memories.

CNN has not independently confirmed The New Yorker's reporting. Kavanaugh has denied both allegations. Telling other Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee could risk outing Ford, who had asked that her identity be protected.

Ed Whelan, the president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center who made waves late last week after he suggested on Twitter that Ford was confusing Kavanaugh with a similar-looking student who might have sexually assaulted her, canceled his appearance at the event in Iowa, where he was scheduled to deliver the keynote speech.

The committee's Republican leader Chuck Grassley wanted the hearing to take place on Wednesday, but Ford asked that it be held on Thursday at the earliest, as she would be able to call as a witness a man she says was present during the assault, the report said.
