Brett Kavanaugh responds after 2nd woman accuses him of sexual misconduct

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh now faces allegations of sexual misconduct from a second woman, who claims he exposed himself to her at a Yale party in a new report from the New Yorker magazine. During the incident at the "drunken dormitory party", which happened during their freshman year, the future judge also allegedly forced her to touch his penis without her consent, the New Yorker revealed.

In an email to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Saturday, Leland Ingham Keyser, a former classmate at the Holton-Arms all-girls school, said she doesn't know Kavanugh or remember being at the party with him. She tells the New Yorker she recalls other students telling her to kiss it. Ramirez says she pushed the person away, touching the penis in the process, and then saw Kavanaugh standing next to her, pulling his trousers up and laughing.

The newest allegation published Sunday night comes as another Kavanaugh accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, is expected to testify Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee. And for people to come out of the woodwork from 36 years ago and 30 years ago and never mentioned it. However, he has already suggested Ford's claims are false, tweeting that if they did happen, she would have "immediately" gone to the police. "I am with him all the way", Trump said after arriving in NY to attend the U.N. General Assembly, calling the allegations against his nominee for a lifetime post on the top USA court politically motivated.

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer representing porn actress Stormy Daniels in her legal fight with Mr Trump, claimed to represent a woman with information about high school-era parties attended by Mr Kavanaugh and urged the Senate to investigate.

The committee said it would not negotiate on other points, though, including Ms Ford's desire for additional witnesses and a request to testify after, not before, Mr Kavanaugh. "When you're dealing with trauma, alcohol, many years in between, I would say the more cautious witnesses I have dealt with in cases like this, very frequently say 'I want to take time to decide'".

Farrow told ABC on Monday there are "several people in this story who back Ms. Ramirez".

Deborah Ramirez described the alleged incident after being contacted by The New Yorker magazine.

What we've been waiting for: In gross but less than shocking news, a second sexual assault allegation against Brett Kavanaugh has surfaced.

The White House remained firmly behind Kavanaugh Monday and planned an aggressive defense, said a White House official not authorized to speak publicly, who stressed the lack of corroborating evidence.

Top Democrats are asking President Donald Trump again to direct the FBI to investigate Christine Blasey Ford's claim that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when both were teenagers.

Trump also echoed an earlier slam he made against Christine Blasey Ford, suggesting her allegation was suspicious because she did not report it at the time. Democrats have called for a delay on his confirmation vote to the Supreme Court pending an FBI investigation, something Republicans deem unnecessary.

In a statement, the Supreme Court nominee strongly refuted the allegation. The White House is standing by Kavanaugh, as well.
