Sen. Dianne Feinstein is calling for the “immediate postponement” of any consideration of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination after a second woman came forward accusing him of sexually assaulting her decades ago. Deborah Ramirez, 53, said that when she and Kavanaugh were students at Yale in the early 80s, she remembers that he “exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away,” according to a report by the New Yorker. Kavanaugh denied the allegation, calling it a last-minute smear.
Just as Ramirez's story dropped Sunday night, Michael Avenatti, a well-known Democratic lawyer, also tweeted that he is representing "a woman with credible information" about Kavanaugh and his high school friend Mark Judge, who Christine Blasey Ford said was in the room with her and Kavanaugh during the alleged assault. Avenatti posted that he has "significant evidence" that Kavanaugh and Judge "would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs."
Kavanaugh's confirmation now seems to be in serious doubt. While the White House defended Kavanaugh against the New Yorker report, Senate Republicans were laying low following the new claim of misconduct. Key Senate Republicans who are undecided on the nomination were mum Sunday night, as were GOP members on the Senate Judiciary Committee, who just finished wrapping up an agreement with Ford to testify later this week. 👆Link in bio for the latest updates. 📸 AP Photo. #brettkavanaugh #stopkavanaugh #democrats #diannefeinstein #scotus #sexualassault #women #staywoke #america
