Second allegations against Kavanaugh aren’t credible either

On Monday, people across the USA walked out of schools and workplaces in solidarity with the women who have accused Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Monday sent the top senators on the Judiciary Committee a letter in which he declared, "I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from the process".

Feinstein also asked Grassley to have the FBI investigate both allegations. "I have faith in God and I have faith in the fairness of the American people", Kavanaugh said.

"These are smears, pure and simple".

Hollywood celebrities and politicians wore black as a show of solidarity with Kavanaugh's accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.

McConnell says "Democrats won't let a complete lack of evidence get between them and a good smear".

"There's a chance that this could be one of the single most unfair, unjust things to happen to a candidate, but I am with Judge Kavanaugh", Trump said. Kavanaugh, 53, is now a judge on the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals. A very similar and consistent characterization of Brett Kavanaugh from those who knew him in high school and refuted Ford's now-questionable claims.

Schuette has aligned himself with Trump and has received the president's endorsement.

The Kavanaugh controversy is unfolding just weeks before November 6 congressional elections in which Democrats are trying to take control of Congress from Republicans, against a backdrop of the #MeToo movement fighting sexual harassment and assault.

Ramirez was reluctant at first to speak publicly "partly because her memories contained gaps because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged incident", The New Yorker reported.

Beyond this, the Times reports that Kavanaugh does not plan on questioning Ford's credibility or her account that she was assaulted, but will maintain he was not the one who committed the alleged assault. "But she should come forward".

The New Yorker identifies the woman as 53-year-old Deborah Ramirez.

"I was never at any such party", Kavanaugh said.

"I don't think Brett would flash himself to Debbie, or anyone, for that matter", he said. "We were sitting in a circle", she said. We know that Ford's assertion that she sought medical treatment for the alleged incident is a crock.

Those classmates also said that behavior like that Ramirez describes would have been very out-of-character for Kavanaugh.

"I have never sexually assaulted anyone, not in high school, not ever". All Davis had to go on at this point was The New Yorker article.

The New Yorker piece says Senate Democrats have been looking into the allegations. Rather than bringing last night's allegations to the attention of committee investigators, they back-channeled them to the media and then denied any involvement.

Republicans mounted a combative, coordinated drive Monday to salvage Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination as they fought to keep a second woman's allegation of long-ago sexual misconduct from derailing his confirmation. "Neither she nor her legal representative have contacted the chairman's office", the statement reads.

A White House official seized on the article's mention that at least four Democratic senators received information about the allegation. There is power in our solidarity, and in letting the Senate Republicans know we aren't going to stand for their disrespectful disregard for survivors of sexual harassment and assault. More recently, another woman, Deborah Ramirez, has come forward with accusations against him of misconduct at a party while the two were freshman at Yale.

"We reached out to former Boulder District Attorney Stan Garnett, who then met with Ms. Ramirez to work through how to analyze and present her allegations", Beckham said.
