In a book titled The Education of Brett Kavanaugh, Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly uncovered a new allegation of sexual assault against the Supreme Court justice, citing a male classmate who alleged he witnessed the assault at a college party. The book also dives deeper into accuser Deborah Ramirez’s experiences.
Two @nytimes reporters, @rpogrebin and @katekelly, spent months independently reporting out Deborah Ramirez’s allegation against Brett Kavanaugh and found it credible—and documented another serious claim of misconduct with an eyewitness.
Per @rpogrebin and @katekelly, Deborah Ramirez’s allegation against Brett Kavanaugh had further corroboration than was previously known—and a male Yale classmate saw Kavanaugh push his penis into the hand of another female student at different dorm party.
“During his Senate testimony, Mr. Kavanaugh said that if the incident Ms. Ramirez described had occurred, it would have been ‘the talk of campus.’ Our reporting suggests that it was.”
The new allegation led some to question the FBI’s investigation into then-nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Incomprehensible and utterly depressing — though it’s worth noting that the insufficiency of the investigation became clear fairly quickly at the time, even to those of us who initially, and naively, trusted it would be thorough.
