New allegations surface against Brett Kavanaugh from Yale student who says he thrust his genitals in her face

Published

on

Senate Democrats are investigating accusations by former Yale University student Deborah Ramirez who claims to have had her own “drunken party” incident with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

According to New Yorker reporter Ronan Farrow, Kavanaugh’s freshman year at Yale is now being investigated by at least two Democratic senators. Meanwhile, Republican legislators are pressing for Kavanaugh to be quickly confirmed.

Ramirez was resistant to speak publicly because she was drinking at the same time and she has gaps in her memory similar to the ones Kavanaugh buddy Mark Judge describes. After talking it through and describing the incident, she knows with certainty that Kavanaugh exposed himself during a dormitory party. She said that he “thrust his penis” into her face, and “caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away.”

Ramirez studied sociology and psychology while at Yale and later worked for an organization that helps survivors of domestic violence.

“I would think an F.B.I. investigation would be warranted,” she told Farrow.

“This is another serious, credible, and disturbing allegation against Brett Kavanagh. It should be fully investigated,” said Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI).

“These allegations seem credible, and we’re taking them very seriously. If established, they’re clearly disqualifying,” said an aide of another Senate office.

Kavanaugh continues to refute all incidents being reported.

“This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen,” he said in a statement. “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.”

Ramirez said that it happened at a party in Lawrence Hall with a small group of students playing a drinking game.

“We were sitting in a circle,” she said. “People would pick who drank.” Ramirez was chosen repeatedly, she said, and quickly became inebriated. At one point, she said, a male student pointed a gag plastic penis in her direction. Later, she said, she was on the floor, foggy and slurring her words as that male student and another stood nearby.”

She also identified the other male students watching the game. She said that a third student exposed himself to her.

“I remember a penis being in front of my face,” she said. “I knew that’s not what I wanted, even in that state of mind.”

She said she remembers responding “That’s not a real penis,” which caused the other students to laugh at her confusion and taunt her. She was told she should kiss it.

“I wasn’t going to touch a penis until I was married,” she told Farrow. “I was embarrassed and ashamed and humiliated.”

Kavanaugh was standing next to her laughing, she said she watched him pull up his pants.

“Brett was laughing,” she said. “I can still see his face, and his hips coming forward, like when you pull up your pants.”

She remembered another student shouting down the hall “Brett Kavanaugh just put his penis in Debbie’s face!”

She recalled it was his full name and how mortified she felt that people knew.

GOP leader McCarthy swats aside Fiona Hill’s national security testimony debunking his Ukraine conspiracy theory

Published

on

On Thursday, during one of the final scheduled impeachment hearings this week, National Security Council official Fiona Hill demolished President Donald Trump's conspiracy theory that Ukraine, rather than Russia, meddled in the 2016 election, calling it a "fictional narrative" and noting that it originated with the Kremlin itself.

But in conversation with reporters, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) flatly disbelieved Hill's testimony, and insisted he still held onto the theory.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told me that he was not going to lose any GOP votes during impeachment.

Published

MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace on Thursday highlighted one of the key moments from the impeachment inquiry testimony from Dr. Fiona Hill.

"Often when women show anger, it’s not fully appreciated. It’s often, you know, pushed onto emotional issues perhaps, or deflected on other people," Hill testified.

Here's Fiona Hill on why she thinks Sondland misunderstood her anger — and how women's anger is often viewed, more generally: "It's not fully appreciated. It's often pushed off onto emotional issues." pic.twitter.com/AsMR3A9InI

Mulvaney lawyer denies Mick was ‘so heavily involved’ — despite his White House briefing room confession

Published

on

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney was referenced multiple times during Dr. Fiona Hill's testimony Thursday, but Mulvaney's lawyer said he doesn't understand why.

"We have no idea why Ms. Hill believes Mr. Mulvaney was so heavily involved, especially in light of Ambassador Sondland’s contrary testimony," said Fox News reporter Chad Pergram, quoting a statement from Robert Driscoll.

As former federal prosecutor Joyce Vance pointed out, Hill recalled during her testimony how angry she was about Sondland not briefing her. She said that after hearing his testimony Wednesday and learning he was briefing Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, Mulvaney and President Donald Trump. She then decided he was correct-they had separate missions and Sondland was on a domestic political errand.
