It might be hard to remember this as Democrats and the media throw around phrases like "second accuser" and "attempted sexual assault" and "exposing himself" against the Supreme Court nominee.
" The New Yorker has not confirmed with other eyewitnesses that Kavanaugh was present at the party", the New Yorker reports. Avenatti tweeted Sunday that he is representing a woman with "credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge", a friend of Kavanaugh's. So, Ramirez went from uncertain, to confident in order to support Ford's claim. She allegedly pushed the person away, touching his penis in the process - something she wasn't planning on doing until she was married.
In New York, people dressed in black began to gather in Washington Square Park as the walkout began at 1 p.m. "I was embarrassed and ashamed and humiliated".
"Somebody yelled down the hall, 'Brett Kavanaugh just put his penis in Debbie's face, '" she said. "It was his full name", she alleged. - President Donald Trump's newest Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is expected to face punishing questioning from Democrats this week over his endorsement of presidential immunity and his opposition to abortion. "I also ask that the newest allegations of sexual misconduct be referred to the FBI for investigation, and that you join our request for the White House to direct the FBI to investigate the allegations of Christine Blasey Ford as well as these new claims". "The White House stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh". "The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so". "These are smears, pure and simple. I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name - and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime - against these last-minute allegations".
White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec spoke along similar lines.
"He's now calling this a smear campaign", she said on "CBS This Morning".
The New Yorker on Sunday published an accusation from a second woman, who said Kavanaugh exposed himself and forced her to touch his genitals while both were at Yale.
Earlier on Saturday, a senior official at the White House said Ms Ford's requests amounted to "a clever way to push off the vote Monday without committing to appear Wednesday".
"A classmate of Ramirez's, who declined to be identified because of the partisan battle over Kavanaugh's nomination, said that another student told him about the incident either on the night of the party or in the next day or two".
"She was at first hesitant to speak publicly, partly because her memories contained gaps because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged incident".
One classmate who Ramirez said egged on Kavanaugh denied any memory of the party, according to the magazine. She was "reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh's role in the alleged incident with certainty", according to The New Yorker.
The New Yorker says the claim dates back to the 1983-84 academic school year, when he exposed himself to a woman named Deborah Ramirez at a dorm room party.
Ford and Kavanaugh have agreed to testify, although Sen.
Ed Whelan, the president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center who made waves late last week after he suggested on Twitter that Ford was confusing Kavanaugh with a similar-looking student who might have sexually assaulted her, canceled his appearance at the event in Iowa, where he was scheduled to deliver the keynote speech.
