Deborah Ramirez told The New Yorker that Kavanaugh thrust his penis in her face at a dorm party at Yale University in the early 1980s.
President Donald Trump on Tuesday continued to downplay the sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, questioning the credibility of one accuser because “she admits she was drunk” at the time of the alleged assault.
“The second accuser has nothing,” Trump told reporters of Deborah Ramirez, who told The New Yorker in an interview published Sunday that she believes Kavanaugh thrust his penis in her face when they were freshmen at Yale University in the early 1980s. “She was totally messed up. She admits she was drunk.”
“Oh gee, let’s not make him a Supreme Court justice because of this,” the president added in a sarcastic tone, according to The New York Times.
In the category of: Cosby’s new role – prisoner.
Bill Cosby was sentenced to three to 10 years in state prison on Tuesday for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand.
Cosby, 81, faced a maximum of 10 years in prison after prosecutors and defense attorneys agreed to merge the three counts of his conviction into one for sentencing purposes.
The DA tweeted:
Once a groundbreaking actor known as “America’s Dad,” Cosby was accused by dozens of women of drugging and sexually assaulting them over his decades as a powerful media figure.
Cosby was convicted in April of three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and assaulting Constand at his home in 2004, in the first high-profile celebrity criminal trial of the #MeToo era.
