NBC is reporting that the Senate Judiciary Committee inquired about yet another accusation of misconduct against Judge Brett Kavanaugh earlier today:
Republican Senate investigators asked Kavanaugh about the new complaint, NBC News has learned, during a phone call on Tuesday between Kavanaugh and committee staff. Sources told NBC News that Kavanaugh denied the allegation in the letter during the call and a spokesman for the committee declined to comment.
A Republican aide on the committee said the conversation took place shortly after noon. While Republican staff posed questions to Kavanaugh, their Democratic counterparts were also on the call but did not ask any questions.
According to an anonymous complaint sent to Republican Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado, Kavanaugh physically assaulted a woman he socialized with in the Washington, D.C., area in 1998 while he was inebriated.
The sender of the complaint described an evening involving her own daughter, Kavanaugh and several friends in 1998.
“When they left the bar (under the influence of alcohol) they were all shocked when Brett Kavanaugh, shoved her friend up against the wall very aggressively and sexually.”
“There were at least four witnesses including my daughter.” The writer of the letter provided no names but said the alleged victim was still traumatized and had decided to remain anonymous herself.
Let’s get this straight: on the eve of Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee an anonymous letter about an anonymous victim that was “assaulted” by Brett Kavanaugh is delivered to a Republican Senator. An anonymous victim, by the way, who was so traumatized that she refuses to come forward 20 years later?
Expect the accusations to come fast and furious now. The Democrats are getting desperate.
