Skip to comments.THE NEW YORK TIMES WAS UNABLE TO CORROBORATE SECOND KAVANAUGH ACCUSER’S STORY
Posted on 09/24/2018 11:38:15 AM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
The New York Times reported on Sunday that it was unable to corroborate the claims of a second accuser who says Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh exposed himself to her in college.
Deborah Ramirez alleges that Kavanaugh thrust his penis into her face while she was drunk at a Yale University dormitory party. The New Yorker ran with Ramirez’s allegation on Sunday despite being unable to produce any firsthand witnesses or confirm that Kavanaugh was at the party where the incident was said to have occurred.
The New York Times noted several paragraphs deep in a report that it chose not to report on Ramirez’s allegation because of a lack of corroborating evidence.
“The Times had interviewed several dozen people over the past week in an attempt to corroborate her story, and could find no one with firsthand knowledge,” the NYT’s Sheryl Gay Stolberg and Nicholas Fandos reported. “Ms. Ramirez herself contacted former Yale classmates asking if they recalled the incident and told some of them that she could not be certain Mr. Kavanaugh was the one who exposed himself.”
The Times interviewed dozens to corroborate 2nd allegation against Kavanaugh and could find no one with firsthand knowledge. Ramirez told ex-classmates she couldn’t be certain Kavanaugh was the one who exposed himself. @SherylNYT @npfandos https://t.co/lGVc4hJzEU

NYT also noted, “The New Yorker did not confirm with other eyewitnesses that Judge Kavanaugh was at the party.”
In an interview with CBS’ “This Morning” on Monday, Jane Mayer, a co-author on The New Yorker piece, admitted that they had no firsthand witnesses who could confirm Ramirez’s account.

the NYT didn’t run that story because even they knew it was crap. that really is saying something.
Still waiting on the fbi to concur.
We can corroborate that she worked for George Soros.
Even the Slimes knew this was BS..heck even Gloria Allred has stayed away from this insanity..even SHE has her standards
That never stopped them before.........................
Uh, they didn’t corroborate the first story either.
guilt by accusation. guilty until proven guiltier. this is medieval justice. the only thing they haven’t done yet is burn him at the stake for witchcraft.
That makes 2 in a row
Trust the NY Times to do the wrong thing.
Why would she lie?!
Funny isn’t it that Gloria stayed away from Stormy and now these politically challenged bimbo’s.
Ramirez can’t lie. She is a woman accusing a conservative male. That means that even her lies are true.
Corroboration? Lol. This is like witchcraft. Make an accusation the disproof which lies on the accused. It’s what we’ve degenerated to.
Underage teens rolling around on the bed and floor,. College kids horsing around, and somebody whips it out.
These sorts of things are being discussed as important Supreme Court nomination issues???
Even if this crap is true, and I don’t believe any of it, but even if we placate the liberals and say, for sake of argument, that these events happened, do these sorts of matters disqualify someone from being a federal judge decades later????
The accuser was probably so wasted that she couldn’t tell a gong from a dong.
There! Positive proof she is telling the truth!/s
Farrow sucks an egg.
