Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh faces another sexual misconduct allegation

Trump rebuffs Kavanaugh impeachment calls after new sexual misconduct report Cruz: At the Next Democratic Debate, They'll All Be Saying Impeach Kavanaugh
Patty Aguilar | 17 September, 2019, 13:01

United States President Donald Trump rejected Democrats' calls for impeaching Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Sunday after a new report involving sexual misconduct allegations, encouraging the latter to sue for libel and suggesting the Justice Department could "rescue" him.

The first Democratic presidential contender who called for Kavanaugh's impeachment was Julián Castro.

Trump complained in the wake of a New York Times article.

It's also important to note that the same New York Times report pointed to a previously reported story involving another one of Kavanaugh's former Yale classmates who says he saw Kavanaugh "with his trousers down at a different drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student". She and some classmates had been drinking heavily when, she says, a freshman named Brett Kavanaugh pulled down his trousers and thrust his penis at her, prompting her to swat it away and inadvertently touch it.

Given all of this, several prominent Democrats, including some presidential hopefuls, are publicly raising the specter of re-examining the Supreme Court justice's record and possibly impeaching Kavanaugh.

"These reporters published a story that didn't include information that even they had in their own book", Hemingway, who is also a senior editor at TheFederalist.com, told Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow. The two agents who interviewed Ramirez told her they found her "credible", the excerpt said.

While Christine Blasey Ford's allegations and Senate testimony were the subject of intense scrutiny, the story surrounding Deborah Ramirez also generated headlines last September.

The reporting also revealed that classmate Max Stier, who now runs a nonprofit in Washington, told senators and the Federal Bureau of Investigation about another incident at an alcohol-fueled party. Despite 7 attempts by staff, Ms. Ramirez' lawyers declined to provide documentary evidence referenced in the article/witness accounts to support the claims.

She testified that when they were teenagers, he pinned her to a bed, groped her and tried to remove her clothes while covering her mouth.

"These newest revelations are disturbing", Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said the judge's Senate confirmation process lacked "a thorough examination of the allegations against him".

The Times' correction came after the far-left newspaper was ridiculed all day online by officials as high as the president who urged Kavanaugh to sue the paper. "Brett Kavanaugh lied to the US Senate and most importantly to the American people", wrote Senator Kamala Harris, a Judiciary Committee member. "He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice". Bernie Sanders of Vermont also called for his impeachment. It noted that Attorney General Bill Barr is scheduled to present the Attorney General's Award for Distinguished Service - one of the Justice Department's most prestigious honors - to the lawyers who worked to support Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination past year.

"He is an innocent man who has been treated HORRIBLY", he wrote. Such lies about him. Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied the allegation.

The new allegation of unwanted sexual contact revealed Saturday was detailed in a lengthy NYT article about Ramirez which adds weight to her allegation. Kavanaugh's reference to his opponents being motivated by "revenge on behalf of the Clintons" met with befuddlement by liberal media, despite the surprisingly large number of Clinton-affiliated attorneys who kept popping up during his confirmation hearings.
