The Judicial Crisis Network, a conservative group that has supported Brett Kavanaugh‘s nomination to the Supreme Court, issued a statement criticizing the New Yorker magazine for its report Sunday that a second woman has accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.
According to JCN, multiple friends and witnesses have strongly denied claims made by Deborah Ramirez that Kavanaugh sexually taunted her during the time both studied at Yale University.
JCN noted in its response:
- “One of the male classmates who Ramirez said egged on Kavanaugh denied any memory of the party. “I don’t think Brett would flash himself to Debbie, or anyone, for that matter,” he said.
- The other male classmate Ramirez said was involved in the incident commented, “I have zero recollection.”
- Ramirez’s college best friend denies it. “This is a woman I was best friends with. We shared intimate details of our lives. And I was never told this story by her, or by anyone else. It never came up. I didn’t see it; I never heard of it happening.”
Other contemporaries deny it as well:
In a statement, two of those male classmates whom Ramirez alleged were involved in the incident, the wife of a third male student she said was involved, and three other classmates, Dino Ewing, Louisa Garry, and Dan Murphy, disputed Ramirez’s account of events:
“We were the people closest to Brett Kavanaugh during his first year at Yale. He was a roommate to some of us, and we spent a great deal of time with him, including in the dorm where this incident allegedly took place.
“Some of us were also friends with Debbie Ramirez during and after her time at Yale. We can say with confidence that if the incident Debbie alleges ever occurred, we would have seen or heard about it — and we did not. The behavior she describes would be completely out of character for Brett. In addition, some of us knew Debbie long after Yale, and she never described this incident until Brett’s Supreme Court nomination was pending. 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.”
