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.

The dangers of Trump TV: MSNBC host hammers Fox News as ‘genuine public health threat’ amid pandemic

Published

on

Tuesday night, Fox News decided that all anyone needed to do is to pump Americans with a Malaria drug and send them back to work to save President Donald Trump's economy.

Speaking Wednesday night, MSNBC host Chris Hayes bashed the conservative network for downplaying the seriousness of coronavirus, saying that they are "a genuine public health threat."

While Trump has advisers like Dr. Anthony Fauci, he also has the unofficial advisers he sees on Fox News.

They "are coalescing around the idea the whole thing is just overblown and we need to pump everyone full of the malaria drug and get them back to work. This is what you heard if you watch trump tv just last night," Hayes said. He then played clips illustrating exactly that, with hosts ranting and raving about the virus not being as serious as the flu.

‘Don’t let him rewrite history’: GOP ex-congressman slams Trump for painting fewer than 100,000 COVID-19 deaths as a victory

Published

on

At Wednesday's coronavirus task force press conference, President Donald Trump reiterated his claim that if fewer than 100,000 Americans die from COVID-19, it will be a victory for him.

Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) had none of it.

He ignored the warnings. He ignored the scientists & doctors. He refused to prepare. He lied about the virus. This country wasn’t ready. People got sick. People died. People lost their jobs. Because he cared more about himself than the country.

Wisconsin GOP plots to strip Democratic governor of more power — a day after forcing voters to stand outside in a pandemic

Published

on

This week, Republicans in the Wisconsin legislature have faced national fury after their successful lawsuits blocking Democratic Gov. Tony Evers from delaying the election and extending absentee voting.

But just one day after tens of thousands of voters were forced to stand in public lines and risk COVID-19 exposure just to exercise their constitutional right to vote, the Wisconsin GOP found yet another way to weaponize the pandemic for partisan gain.

According to Molly Beck of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Republicans in the legislature have slipped a provision into the state's relief bill authorizing unemployment disbursement under the federal CARES Act, that would allow the state's Finance Committee to make budget cuts without input from Evers — stripping him of power at exactly the moment when the public would be looking to the governor for help.
