    A much-discussed article by New York Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, authors of the new book The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation, revives the story of Deborah Ramirez, the woman who, during last year's Supreme Court nomination fight, said that a drunken Kavanaugh thrust his penis at her (she was also drunk) at a party at Yale during the 1983-1984 school year. Pogrebin and Kelly claim that extensive evidence supports the Ramirez allegation. "At least seven people, including Ms. Ramirez's mother, heard about the Yale incident long before Mr. Kavanaugh was a federal judge," they write in...
  • Brett Kavanaugh Fit In With the Privileged Kids. She Did Not

    NYT ^ | Sept. 14, 2019 | Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly
    Deborah Ramirez had the grades to go to Yale in 1983. But she wasn’t prepared for what she’d find there. A top student in southwestern Connecticut, she studied hard but socialized little. She was raised Catholic and had a sheltered upbringing. In the summers, she worked at Carvel dishing ice cream, commuting in the $500 car she’d bought with babysitting earnings. SNIP During the winter of her freshman year, a drunken dormitory party unsettled her deeply. She and some classmates had been drinking heavily when, she says, a freshman named Brett Kavanaugh pulled down his pants and thrust his penis...

    Lots of deserved recollections on the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing over the last few weeks and months. There’s not much need to repeat the main themes of the scientific marvel or adventurous spirit of that glorious enterprise. Some political aspects of Apollo, however, have not received sufficient attention. Specifically, the liberal attitude toward the moon landing is emblematic of how American liberalism had lost confidence in itself and sunk into its guilt phase from which it has never emerged. As befits our woeful woke era, there has been a lot of comment about the lack of “diversity”...
  • New Yorker Reporter Suggests She Ran With Ramirez Accusation to Show ‘If True … There Was a Pattern’

    The Free Beacon ^ | 10/9/2018 | : David Rutz
    New Yorker reporter Jane Mayer suggested in a new interview that she and Ronan Farrow reported on Deborah Ramirez's uncorroborated accusation of misconduct by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh out of eagerness to show a "pattern" of such behavior. The veteran journalist told Elle her recollections of the Clarence Thomas hearings, the treatment of Anita Hill by the Senate, and the public informed her judgment regarding Kavanaugh. "So having watched this before, I knew that key issues would be whether the judge had a pattern of similar behavior, since that helps establish who is telling the truth when there is...

    Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, on Thursday released an executive summary of the FBI’s supplemental investigation into the Brett Kavanaugh allegations. At the Senate Judiciary Committee’s request, the FBI opened a supplemental background investigation into Judge Kavanaugh. It’s his seventh FBI background investigation in 25 years, going back to 1993. The request was for an investigation into current credible allegations against Judge Kavanaugh. In the course of its investigation, the FBI decided to reach out to eleven people, ten of whom agreed to be interviewed. The FBI reached out to all witnesses with potential firsthand knowledge of the...

    Charles Ludington, Lynne Brookes and Elizabeth Swisher attended Yale University from 1983 to 1987 with Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh. We were college classmates and drinking buddies with Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh. In the past week, all three of us decided separately to respond to questions from the media regarding Brett’s honesty, or lack thereof. In each of our cases, it was his public statements during a Fox News TV interview and his sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee that prompted us to speak out. We each asserted that Brett lied to the Senate by stating,...

Again, no evidence he is asking anyone to lie or do anything wrong. Just exonerate him.

    A mutual friend of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Deborah Ramirez, one of his sexual misconduct accusers, has asked the FBI to investigate text messages that Kavanaugh and his allies sent to friends before her story was made public. Kerry Berchem, who was at Yale when Kavanaugh is accused of exposing himself to Ramirez, emailed FBI agent J.C. McDonough asking the agency to review those messages as part of its reopened background investigation of Kavanaugh, NBC News reported Monday. NBC reported that text messages between Berchem and Karen Yarasavage, a friend of Kavanaugh, suggest the high court nominee was...

Kavanaugh, including a second woman who alleges that the Supreme Court nominee sexually assaulted her, according to people familiar with the unfolding investigation. The bureau has reached out to Deborah Ramirez, a Yale University classmate of Kavanaugh’s who alleges that he shoved his genitals in her face at a party where she had been drinking and become disoriented. It was not clear that agents had yet interviewed Ramirez. But the FBI is moving quickly to contact people as part of the new background...
  • Wonder Why Ramirez Needed 6 Days to 'Assess Her Memories'? Yale's Sexual Climate Holds the Answers

    Townhall ^ | 09/27/2018 | Ashley Herzog
    Deborah Ramirez was sexually assaulted at Yale. That part, she’s sure of—she was on the floor, drunk and incapacitated, when a man exposed himself. As she struggled to get up, he thrust his genitals in her face, causing her to touch his penis. Bystanders allegedly taunted her to “kiss it.” Then, it gets murky. Ramirez spent six days “assessing her memories” to determine whether the penis in question belonged to Brett Kavanaugh. She wasn’t sure. Apparently, it could have been anyone’s. Many people wondered why Ramirez needed six days to “assess her memories” about such a bizarre and offensive incident....

    Shortened title. Full title: These Emails Show Kavanaugh Accuser’s Attorney Lied To Anderson Cooper About Senate Republicans’ ‘Game-Playing’ On Sunday, The New Yorker published Deborah Ramirez’s uncorroborated claim that while both were freshmen at Yale University, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a binge-drinking party. Since The New Yorker ran the article, it has been taking heat for running it given that Ramirez admits she was intoxicated at the time some 35 years ago, and only “[a]fter six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney” did she decide Kavanaugh had been the...

    Deborah Ramirez, a Yale University classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, is refusing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee about her decades-old accusation against Kavanaugh, a GOP lawmaker said Tuesday. Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., who sits on the committee, said a lawyer for Ramirez told committee staff she would not speak to them about her allegation that Kavanaugh flashed his naked groin in her face during an alcohol-laden party their freshman year. Ramirez made the accusation in a blockbuster Sunday night New Yorker story. “Our counsel repeatedly tried to reach him,” Kennedy said of Ramirez's lawyer. “They finally...

    **SNIP** While most Democrats are taking Ramirez’s allegation seriously — if not to the extent they're publicly backed Ford — they’re stopping far short of giving the same treatment to a third, unknown woman tied to the nominee and represented by celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti. Avenatti has tweeted that his client is a “woman with credible information” concerning “the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs” by Kavanaugh and his longtime friend Mark Judge, whom Ford has identified as the third person in the room during her alleged assault. But Democratic senators are treading lightly on the claims from Avenatti, who also...

    Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California again demanded Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s hearing to the Supreme Court be delayed, hours after Christine Blasey Ford agreed to testify about her sexual misconduct accusations against Kavanaugh. “I am writing to request an immediate postponement of any further proceedings related to the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh,” Feinstein said in a statement late Sunday evening. Feinstein’s letter was in response to a second woman, Deborah Ramirez, who came forward accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct decades ago. The California senator’s demand came hours after Ford agreed to testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee following...

    In his careful reading of the available reports of the accusation made by Deborah Ramirez against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra found ten serious problems for those who want to believe it. Here they are: 1. The New Yorker could not find a single witness who could put Kavanaugh at the alleged party. 2. The New York Times could not find a single person who could corroborate Ramirez's claims. 3. The man accused of egging on Kavanaugh denied Ramirez's allegations and vouched for Kavanaugh's character. 4. A third person that Ramirez claimed was at the party says...

    I’ve been saying all week that you could expect another late hit on Brett Kavanaugh over the weekend, and right on schedule, we have the New Yorker story, which, as Paul and Scott have already noted, is pretty thin gruel. But it was absolutely necessary for the left to come up with a story like this, for several reasons. First, one thing that is true in virtually all cases of sexual predation (think Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein) is that there is a pattern of behavior, and usually several other women stepping forward. This trait was conspicuously absent until now....
