One of Brett Kavanaugh’s Yale classmates has revealed a new text message showing that the Supreme Court nominee attempted to tamper with a potential witness to one of the sexual assaults he allegedly committed.
NBC News reported that in the days leading up to the second sexual assault allegation published in The New Yorker, Kavanaugh’s classmate Kathy Charlton learned from another of his acquaintances that the nominee called him and asked him to tell press “no bad” if they inquired about the incident.
On September 21, two days before The New Yorker went live with the allegations made by accuser Deborah Ramirez, that same acquaintance texted Charlton in all-caps about the admission.
“Don’t F****** TELL PEOPLE BRETT GOT IN TOUCH WITH ME!!!” the acquaintance — whose identity was not revealed, but was confirmed by, NBC — reportedly texted her. “I TOLD YOU AT THE TIME THAT WAS IN CONFIDENCE!!!”
NBC also confirmed that the man who sent Charlton that message was also named by Ramirez as a potential witness to the incident decades prior when Kavanaugh allegedly thrust his penis onto her face.
“From the content and all capital letters of the text (the alleged witness) seemed to feel that there was a great deal at stake for Brett if Brett’s fears of exposure ever became public,” Charlton wrote in a letter to the FBI that was later shared on October 4 with Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA).
