As Accusations Mount, Three More Yalies Retract Support From Kavanaugh

Both stories have been heavily disputed by numerous witnesses, and Kavanaugh has flatly denied both allegations. She was first contacted by the New Yorker last Monday and retained me to represent her Tuesday.

The New Yorker has been preparing the article, which went live at 7:49 p.m. Sunday, for several weeks, during which time Senate Democrats leaped at the opportunity to call for Kavanaugh's withdrawal.

In a statement Roche said that although he was not at the part, where Kavanaugh's accuser alleges the incident took place however he said that his friend Ramirez "stood out as being exceptionally honest and gentle" while he said Kavanaugh was a "notably heavy drinker" during his college years.

[A] small group of students made a decision to play a drinking game together. Another displays the same four hashtags with the text, "We Demand Better" displayed above the Yale Law School logo. "As the #MeToo movement gains momentum, people who are not victims or perpetrators but may know of sexual misconduct have been increasingly criticized for complicity". Kavanaugh also has denied those accusations. "So certainly since 2016 things have changed", she says. A fellow Yale University student later accused him of exposing himself to her while they were in college together. "I remember a penis being in front of my face", she said. As we got to know one another, I discovered that Debbie was very anxious about fitting in. I have shared this information with a small number of reporters who reached out to me directly because Debbie has a right to be heard and I believe her.

Students had been told the school must remain nonpartisan, she said, "but sexual violence is not a partisan issue".

" The New Yorker has not confirmed with other eyewitnesses that Kavanaugh was present at the party", the New Yorker reports.

Yale Law School graduates Kent Sinclair, Douglas Rutzen and Mark Osler, all of whom previously signed a letter attesting to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's virtue, are now pushing for an investigation into the accusations against him, according to a Tuesday Washington Post report.

She wrote that, "Kavanaugh's fate as a Supreme Court nominee may well turn on the questions raised in today's campus sexual-assault debates".

The three joined Yale law professor Akhil Amar, who once taught Kavanaugh and who also publicly endorsed his qualifications for the Supreme Court, in their collective assertion that there should be an investigation. While Ford and Ramirez deserve Federal Bureau of Investigation validation, Kavanaugh might deserve Federal Bureau of Investigation exoneration. It's 35 years old. "I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter", he said. This is a smear, plain and simple. The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out.
