Ronan Farrow: “New Allegation Of Sexual Misconduct Against Brett Kavanaugh.”

September 23, 2018

When Ronan Farrow reports a story……….wow.

This will add another dimension to the Brett Kavanaugh story which may start to make White House officials ponder an exit strategy.  At some point the narrative is no longer controlled by those seeking to advance the nominee, and instead the public backlash has more consequences than the benefits of pushing forward.   That is a political reality that is now coming close to taking hold.

The woman at the center of the story, Deborah Ramirez, who is fifty-three, attended Yale with Kavanaugh, where she studied sociology and psychology. Later, she spent years working for an organization that supports victims of domestic violence. The New Yorker contacted Ramirez after learning of her possible involvement in an incident involving Kavanaugh. The allegation was conveyed to Democratic senators by a civil-rights lawyer. For Ramirez, the sudden attention has been unwelcome, and prompted difficult choices. 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. In her initial conversations with The New Yorker, she was reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh’s role in the alleged incident with certainty. After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections to say that she remembers Kavanaugh had exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away. Ramirez is now calling for the F.B.I. to investigate Kavanaugh’s role in the incident. “I would think an F.B.I. investigation would be warranted,” she said.

    The New York times has some out saying after a week they could find no one to collaberate her story and she was also unsure it was even him. But yet the New Yorker did not care about those facts which are real unlike what they did
