Senate probing new allegation of misconduct against Kavanaugh - Supreme Court Nominee has been asked privately about an accusation of physical assault, sources tell NBC News.

Quote:
The Senate Judiciary Committee is inquiring about at least one additional allegation of misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, according to a letter obtained by NBC News and multiple people familiar with the process.

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 saAccording 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.

To be fair, should be "alleged victim". However:

We are not "ruining his life" by telling him he can't do this free of consequences. He already ruined plenty of lives including his own. He asked for a public office ergo he asked for EXACTLY THIS.

He has got to be reconsidering that corner office at Pepperdine or Stanford right about now.

This. I'm letting the URL show because the article's title is important. Edit in: well, crapola, the full URL shows in draft but not in display. OK, the title is: The Men Who Hurt Their Careers By Hurting Women... Aren't The Victims.

I am steeling myself against the barrage of victim blaming which has already started.

No-one can possibly know the utter horror of gang-rape unless they have been through it, (I have) and the lifetime of trying to get well and recover from the depths of despair. There is almost no chance of reporting it at the time - (of course there may be people who have been able to, I haven't heard of any) - but I think I was almost in my fifties before I even began to be able to recover. I in no way led a 'normal' life after that event, and spent a great deal of time deep in alcoholism and drug addiction. (I stopped drinking and drugging 29 years ago).

I think the woman who has put herself forward is incredibly brave - and my concern is that she will be torn to pieces by the people with the republican agenda. I hope with all my heart that she has guardian angels (people or spiritual) that will be with her and support her.

I don't usually speak up about such matters but my time on WP although short has been a time of finding refuge and finding my Aspie self.

Oh dear God, I'm so sorry. But glad that you found a way through and found your way here.

Solidarity and tears for you my sweet friend. You know I faced similar and it is a long journey but we can walk it together.
Bless you and everyone affected in this tragedy.

@feeli0:

Wishing you a warm hug, or a warm blanket (weighted or not as you like), a cozy chair, a mug of coffee, tea, or cocoa.

And all the butterflies imaginable.

He raped me in a past life. Should I come forward? :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

I hope you #metoo feminazis are happy. All this false accusing is gonna backfire on you. Your movement is beginning to lose credibility. If you think guilty until proven innocent makes sense then move to China or Iran.

That sure explains why women are picking up steam and kicking men’s asses at the polls. The men during the age of the Suffrage movement viewed those women in a vilifying light as well, those women were ripped on and spit out at the time before they won what they were after and history tells a very different story about them now. It’s history - it’s change - it’s progress, I get it - some are unnerved by it, always are - but history keeps going forward no matter who is in the white house (even if in some cases, like today it’s in spite of them).

Personally, I’m confident enough that strong women don’t intimidate me - if anything it makes me like them more.

So if your not part of the #metoo movement you're not a strong woman? :?

I prefer strong woman. I hate damsels and other subjugative woman. I'm half Italian and my grandmother and great-aunts were in charge of their households back in the day.

Never stated the first. But the term “feminazi” says all that it needs to say. That term is thrown around at women fighting for anything and I’ve often found similarities among men who connect the two.
