Senate Democrats reportedly investigating second sexual misconduct allegation against Brett Kavanaugh

Deborah Ramirez, 53, told the New Yorker that Kavanaugh exposed himself at a college dorm party when they were both studying at Yale, “thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away.”

“Brett was laughing,” she told the magazine, which posted the story Sunday night. “I can still see his face, and his hips coming forward, like when you pull up your pants.”

Another Yale student, who chose to remain anonymous, said he was “100% sure” that he had heard about Kavanaugh allegedly exposing himself to Ramirez at the time.

Kavanaugh denied Ramirez’s allegations.

“This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen,” he told the New Yorker. “The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple. 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.”

At least two Democratic senators are investigating the allegations, according to the New Yorker, and at least two others know about the claims, as well as some senior Republican staffers.

“This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats designed to tear down a good man,” White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec said in a statement.

“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. The White House stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh.”
