A Yale classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh tells The New Yorker's Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer that he's been trying to contact the FBI to corroborate accuser Deborah Ramirez's accusations -- but he can't get anyone to hear him out.
Specifically, the classmate says that he remembers hearing a story about Kavanaugh shoving his genitals in Ramirez's face during a party in which both of them had been drinking.
The classmate's attempts to talk with the FBI about this, however, have been one dead end after another.
"He had hoped to convey this to the FBI, but, when he reached out to a Bureau official in Washington DC, he was told to contact the F.B.I. field office nearest his home," Farrow and Mayer report. "When he tried that, he was referred to a recording. After several attempts to reach a live person at the field office, he finally reached an official who he said had no idea what he was talking about. At this point, he went back to the official at the FBI's DC headquarters, who then referred him, too, to an 800-number tip line."
The classmate said he was extremely frustrated by this because he thought that the FBI was actually looking for evidence.
"I thought it was going to be an investigation, but instead it seems it’s just an alibi for Republicans to vote for Kavanaugh," he said.
