The FBI just launched investigation into a Kavanaugh sexual assault claim that Senate Republicans refused to probe

The FBI’s investigation into the multiple allegations of sexual assault and misconduct by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has already entered uncomfortable territory for the cranky snotling who abased himself so disgracefully during Thursday’s greasy horror show of a Senate hearing.


The Washington Post reports that the Bureau has reached out to Deborah Ramirez, his second accuser and that she has agreed to cooperate with the investigation.

“She has agreed to cooperate with their investigation. Out of respect for the integrity of the process, we will have no further comment at this time” said her attorney, John Clune, in a statement.

Ramirez, who attended Yale University with Brett Kavanaugh, says that he “exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away.”

She remembers Kavanaugh standing to her right and laughing, pulling up his pants. “Brett was laughing,” she said. “I can still see his face, and his hips coming forward, like when you pull up your pants.”

She recalled another male student shouting about the incident. “Somebody yelled down the hall, ‘Brett Kavanaugh just put his penis in Debbie’s face,’ ” she said. “It was his full name. I don’t think it was just ‘Brett.’ And I remember hearing and being mortified that this was out there.”

The New Yorker reports that Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee actively rebuffed Ramirez’s efforts to get a chance to tell her story to the committee.

The Ramirez accusations went largely unmentioned during Thursday’s hearing, as were the accusations of Kavanaugh’s possible involvement in gang-rape brought by bulldog lawyer Michael Avenatti and his client Julie Swetnick.

The allegations of gang-rape echo stories told by Kavanaugh’s friend Mark Judge’s ex-girlfriend, who said that Judge had told her stories of participating in group sex with drunk, potentially incapacitated girls.

While only Mark Judge was in the room with Kavanaugh for the fateful night in 1982 when he allegedly assaulted Christine Blasey Ford, there’s a host of other witnesses to his college behavior who have already come forward to say that he’s lying about his drinking and his party days.

Seeing as he swore under oath that he’s never blacked out from drinking before, he might be facing some serious perjury charges along with his sex assault case, as Senator Bernie Sanders believes he will. 

No matter what, this investigation is not going to go well for the would-be judge. The American people have a very good idea of what kind of a man Brett Kavanaugh really is, and all we need is confirmation from law enforcement to sink his nomination for good.
