On Sunday, it came out that there are two more women besides Dr. Christine Blasey Ford who are accusing SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.The second accuser is Deborah Ramirez, who came forward to Ronan Farrow in a piece in the New Yorker. The third is not yet named, but lawyer Michael Avenatti tweeted that he is now representing a woman who has “credible” information about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his high school friend Mark Judge.
He clarified that his client was not Deborah Ramirez.
Avenatti also revealed via tweet that he sent an email to Mike Davis, Chief Counsel for Nominations on the Senate Judiciary committee, demanding Kavanaugh’s confirmation process be “thorough.”
There’s not much information about the third accuser yet. Deborah Ramirez, the second accuser, who is not represented by Avenatti, told the New Yorker that during a drunken Yale dormitory party, Kavanaugh exposed himself and “thrust his penis in her face.”
She explained the circumstances, saying “We were sitting in a circle. People would pick who drank.” She claimed she was chosen repeatedly, and quickly became drunk. At one point, she remembers watching Kavanaugh, who was standing next to her laughing, pull up his pants. She told Farrow, “I wasn’t going to touch a penis until I was married. I was embarrassed and ashamed and humiliated.” She also remembered a student shouting down the hall, “Brett Kavanaugh just put his penis in Debbie’s face!” She specifically remembered that the person used his full name, and her feelings of mortification at people knowing what he’d done to her.
Ramirez is calling for the FBI to investigate the incident, saying “I would think an F.B.I. investigation would be warranted.”
Regarding Ramirez’s accusations, Kavanaugh made the following statement:
“This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. 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.”
Sen. Mazi Hirono (D-HI) said, “This is another serious, credible, and disturbing allegation against Brett Kavanagh. It should be fully investigated.”
An aide at the office of another senator said, “These allegations seem credible, and we’re taking them very seriously. If established, they’re clearly disqualifying.”
