Brett Kavanaugh: New Sexual Assault Allegation Against Supreme Court Nominee Surfaces

Second woman makes allegation against Kavanaugh
And just seven weeks from an election in which Democrats are hoping to capture control of the House and maybe the Senate, her emergence has also drawn intensified attention to the #MeToo movement's focus on sexual abuse.
It had seemed assured before Ms Ford, a 51-year-old California college professor, went public a week ago with her allegation that Mr Kavanaugh assaulted her at a party when they were in high school.
The New Yorker reported Sunday that during the 1983-84 academic year, Kavanaugh's first year at Yale University, a female classmate said he exposed himself at a dormitory party.
Keyser is the latest person alleged to be at the party to say she has no recollection of it. This is a smear, plain and simple.
"I am with Judge Kavanaugh, and I look forward to a vote", Trump said.
"This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats created to tear down a good man", White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec said. "The White House stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh".
Mark Judge said, "I have no memory of the alleged incident".
Pence also says that he and President Donald Trump are confident that Republicans will handle that process "with the utmost respect for all concerned".
The New York Times and Washington Post have stories. The magazine said numerous people they contacted did not respond to interview requests, others declined to comment or said they did not attend or remember the party.
Keyser is a former golf coach at Georgetown University and the ex-wife of Bob Beckel, a political pundit and former Democratic operative, according to the Weekly Standard. "I don't think Brett would flash himself to Debbie, or anyone, for that matter", he said. "Editors from the New Yorker contacted some of us because we are the people who would know the truth, and we told them that we never saw or heard about this". Kavanaugh has denied doing this and said he wants to appear before the committee as soon as possible to clear his name.
Michael Avenetti, a U.S. lawyer known for representing adult film actress Stormy Daniels in her cases against President Trump, has alleged on Twitter that he is representing a third woman with "credible information" regarding Judge Kavanaugh and the alleged witness to Prof Ford's assault, Mark Judge.
Additional reporting from Newsy affiliate CNN. Some of us were also friends with Debbie Ramirez during and after her time at Yale.
In a statement, the White House claimed that neither Kavanaugh nor anyone within the administration shared the accuser's name with Whelan.
If the answer to any one of the above is no, and Kavanaugh is confirmed despite credible evidence that he shouldn't be, then millions of women don't even need to ask who owns their bodies. "Despite actual threats to her safety and her life, Dr. Ford believes it is important for senators to hear directly from her about the sexual assault committed against her", her attorneys said in a statement to the Times. "Neither she nor her legal representative have contacted the chairman's office". Feinstein has said she did so because she was respecting Blasey's wish to remain anonymous.
Blasey and Kavanaugh are scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about Blasey's accusations on Thursday.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Grassley wrangled with Ford's lawyers for the last week over the exact terms of her appearance. It sent out a long list of talking points highlighting weaknesses in the story of Deborah Ramirez, the woman who recounted her story to the magazine.
