Allegations derail Kavanaugh confirmation, add possible hearing
By Sergio Bustos | USA TODAY
Allegations of sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh leveled by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford threaten to end his nomination for the Supreme Court.
Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum interviewed U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his wife, Ashley Estes Kavanaugh, Monday for her show, “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”
Two women have publicly come forward to accuse Kavanaugh of alleged past incidents of sexual misconduct since his initial confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month.
Kavanaugh is scheduled to appear before the committee on Thursday to defend himself against an allegation of sexual assault against him by Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey Ford.
Late Sunday, a second woman – Deborah Ramirez, a Yale University classmate of Kavanaugh’s – came forward with claims that he exposed himself to her and shoved his penis in her face at a dorm room party in their freshman year at the Ivy League school. She said they were playing a drinking game at the time and admits there are gaps in her memory of that night.
