    Really? Hirono: Kavanaugh Doesn’t Get Presumption of Innocence Because of His ‘Ideological Agenda’

    By Cameron Cawthorne - Washington Free Beacon




    Sen. Mazie Hirono (D., Hawaii) appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday, where she appeared to insinuate that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh does not get the presumption of innocence because of his "ideological agenda," citing his views on abortion.

    Christine Blasey Ford, a professor of psychology at Palo Alto University in California, has accused Kavanaugh of drunkenly pinning her to a bed, groping her, and trying to stifle her screams at a high school party in the early 1980's. Kavanaugh denied the allegations, as has his former classmate Mark Judge, who Ford claims was also in the room at the time of the alleged incident. Two other people that Ford alleges were at the party in question, have also denied any knowledge of the party or sexual assault.

    Tapper said that four witnesses have denied knowledge of the sexual assault allegation waged against Kavanaugh before asking Hirono whether Kavanaugh should get the presumption of innocence as any other American.

    "I put his denial in the context of everything that I know about him in terms of how he approaches his cases. As I said, his credibility is already very questionable in my mind and in the minds of a lot of my fellow Judiciary Committee members, the Democrats," Hirono said. "When I say that he is very outcome driven, he has an ideological agenda, very outcome driven, and I could sit here and talk to you about some of the cases that exemplifies his ability to be fair."

    She went on to talk about abortion and how she believes that Kavanaugh is against women having the right to reproductive choice.

    "This is a person who is going to be sitting on our Supreme Court making decisions that will impact women’s reproductive choice. He very much is against women’s reproductive choice," Hirono said.

    "There are so many indications of his own lack of credibility," she added.

    Tapper then pressed her to clarify whether she doesn't think he has credibility because he wouldn't give an opinion on the Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade.

    "This is why it is so important that there at least be an investigation, so that there's some effort at collaboration," Hirono said. "We think that there was a lot of drinking going on and as far as his friend, Mark Judge, not even testifying. That is astounding to me."

    Later in the interview, Tapper asked Hirono about the sexual assault allegations against Democratic National Committee co-chair Keith Ellison, prompting her to say that she makes "no excuses" for people who engage in this behavior. She then said that there needs to be an investigation into the allegations against him before quickly pivoting back to the Kavanaugh allegation. Ellison has denied the allegations.

    Dr. Ford's lawyers told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Saturday that she is accepting a request to speak before the committee next week. A person briefed on the call said that Ford's lawyers and a bipartisan group of committee staff agreed to a Thursday hearing.

    Obvious 10 Serious Problems With New Accusations Against Kavanaugh

    By Ryan Saavedra - The Daily Wire




    The New Yorker published new accusations on Sunday from a second woman who alleges that Judge Brett Kavanaugh acted sexually inappropriate towards her at a party during their college years.

    Deborah Ramirez, 53, alleges that while she was at a Yale party, intoxicated to the point that she was on the ground in a "foggy" state "slurring" her words, Kavanaugh pulled his pants down and exposed himself to her.

    The New Yorker report and a subsequent report from The New York Times both raise multiple red flags about the credibility of the allegations. Here are 10 key points compiled from both reports that raise serious questions about the claims:

    1. The New Yorker could not find a single witness who could put Kavanaugh at the alleged party.

    Buried more than 1,000 words into the report, Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer wrote:

    The New Yorker has not confirmed with other eyewitnesses that Kavanaugh was present at the party. The magazine contacted several dozen classmates of Ramirez and Kavanaugh regarding the incident. Many did not respond to interview requests; others declined to comment, or said they did not attend or remember the party.

    2. The New York Times could not find a single person who could corroborate Ramirez's claims.

    The New York Times likewise could not find a single witness to backup her allegations:

    The Times had interviewed several dozen people over the past week in an attempt to corroborate her story, and could find no one with firsthand knowledge.

    3. The man accused of egging on Kavanaugh denied Ramirez's allegations and vouched for Kavanaugh's character.

    Buried more than 1,400 words into the New Yorker story, Farrow and Mayer provide a quote from one of the men named by Ramirez:

    One of the male classmates who Ramirez said egged on Kavanaugh denied any memory of the party. "I don’t think Brett would flash himself to Debbie, or anyone, for that matter," he said. Asked why he thought Ramirez was making the allegation, he responded, "I have no idea." The other male classmate who Ramirez said was involved in the incident commented, "I have zero recollection."

    4. A third person that Ramirez claimed was at the party says she was not there for the alleged incident.

    The classmate, who was not named, said that "she was not present at the incident."

    5. Ramirez contacted her former classmates, asking about the incident, and admitted she was not sure that Kavanaugh was the male who exposed himself.

    The Times' report states:

    Ms. Ramirez herself contacted former Yale classmates asking if they recalled the incident and told some of them that she could not be certain Mr. Kavanaugh was the one who exposed himself.

    6. A woman who claims she was "best friends" with Ramirez says Ramirez never mentioned the story and initially said her friend's accusations against Kavanaugh might be "politically motivated."

    Buried nearly 1,700 words into the New Yorker piece, the report states:

    The former friend who was married to the male classmate alleged to be involved, and who signed the statement, said of Ramirez, “This is a woman I was best friends with. We shared intimate details of our lives. And I was never told this story by her, or by anyone else. It never came up. I didn’t see it; I never heard of it happening.” She said she hadn’t spoken with Ramirez for about ten years, but that the two women had been close all through college, and Kavanaugh had remained part of what she called their “larger social circle.” In an initial conversation with The New Yorker, she suggested that Ramirez may have been politically motivated. Later, she said that she did not know if this was the case.

    7. Ramirez, just like Christine Blasey Ford, is a registered Democrat and is dedicated to leftist causes.

    Farrow and Mayer note more than 1,800 words into their report that "Ramirez is a registered Democrat," noting that she "works toward human rights, social justice, and social change."

    8. Ramirez wasn't even sure her memory was correct — until she spent six days going over it with her Democrat lawyer.

    "In her initial conversations with The New Yorker, she was reluctant to characterize Kavanaugh’s role in the alleged incident with certainty," the outlet reports. "After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney, Ramirez said that she felt confident enough of her recollections to say that she remembers Kavanaugh..."

    The New Yorker waits for more than 2,100 words to inform readers that Ramirez's lawyer is "Stanley Garnett, a former Democratic district attorney in Boulder..."

    9. Ramirez admits there are holes in her memory due to how much she drank at the party.

    "She was at first hesitant to speak publicly, partly because her memories contained gaps because she had been drinking at the time of the alleged incident," the New Yorker report states in the second paragraph.

    Ramirez said that at the party, where students were playing a drinking game, she "quickly became inebriated" because of the large amounts of alcohol she was consuming, adding that she became so intoxicated that she "was on the floor, foggy and slurring her words."

    10. People who knew Ramirez after her time at Yale say that she never once mentioned the incident — until Kavanaugh's nomination was pending.

    More than 1,500 words into the article, the New Yorker report states:

    In a statement, two of those male classmates who Ramirez alleged were involved in the incident, the wife of a third male student she said was involved, and three other classmates, Dino Ewing, Louisa Garry, and Dan Murphy, disputed Ramirez’s account of events: “We were the people closest to Brett Kavanaugh during his first year at Yale. He was a roommate to some of us, and we spent a great deal of time with him, including in the dorm where this incident allegedly took place. Some of us were also friends with Debbie Ramirez during and after her time at Yale. We can say with confidence that if the incident Debbie alleges ever occurred, we would have seen or heard about it—and we did not. The behavior she describes would be completely out of character for Brett. In addition, some of us knew Debbie long after Yale, and she never described this incident until Brett’s Supreme Court nomination was pending. Editors from the New Yorker contacted some of us because we are the people who would know the truth, and we told them that we never saw or heard about this.

    Come to think of it, I was at this party once and this slightly older dude flopped out his penis and started harrassing women. Looks like the guy in that picture!

    Really? Lawyer Claims Kavanaugh Targeted Women ‘To Allow a Train of Men To Gang Rape Them’

    Breaking911.com




    President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is facing new allegations of sexual misconduct.

    This after a woman claiming to be his former classmate at Yale has come forward—paired with Stormy Daniels’ lawyer alleging evidence of a ‘gang-rape’ group involving the judge.

    The accuser is 53-year-old Deborah Ramirez, she claims the ‘drunken incident’ occurred during the 1983-84 school year.

    She shared her story to the New Yorker, alleging ‘Kavanaugh had 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.’

    Ramirez admitted in the article her memory ‘contained gaps’ and she was reluctant to come forward but did so after speaking with her attorney. She then participated in a photo shoot for the magazine.

    Judge Kavanaugh disputes the claims as a ‘smear’: “This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple. I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name–and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building–against these last-minute allegations.”

    White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec said: “This 35-year-old, uncorroborated claim is the latest in a coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats designed to tear down a good man. This claim is denied by all who were said to be present and is wholly inconsistent with what many women and men who knew Judge Kavanaugh at the time in college say. The White House stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh.”

    Around the same time the New Yorker published the latest accusation, aspiring Democrat politician and the lawyer who represents porn actress Stormy Daniels claimed he has ‘credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge.’

    Michael Avenatti later said the unidentified woman was not Deborah Ramirez.

    Avenatti then revealed an email sent to Mike Davis, the Chief Counsel for Nominations for U.S. Senate Committee. In the email, Avenatti claimed he has ‘evidence’ Judge Kavanaugh and his college friend Mark Judge targeted women for ‘gang rapes.’

    Avenatti wrote, in part, “We are aware of significant evidence of multiple parties in the D.C. area in the early 1980s during which Brett Kavanaugh […] and others would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs in order to allow a ‘train’ of men to subsequently gang-rape them.”



    Brett Kavanaugh ‘must also be asked about this entry in his yearbook: “FFFFFFFourth of July.” We believe that this stands for: Find them, French them, Feel them, Finger them, F*ck them, Forget them. As well as the term “Devil’s Triangle,” Avenatti continued.

    Kavanaugh’s first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, is scheduled to testify before the senate on Thursday.

    During the confirmation process for the supreme court, Ford came forward and, through interviews to the press and statements by her attorney, alleged that in the early 1980s Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her.

    Specifically, Ford stated that in the early 1980s, when she and Kavanaugh were teenagers, Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge, corralled her in a bedroom at a house party in Maryland. According to Ford, Kavanaugh pinned her to the bed, groped her, ground against her, tried to pull off her clothes, and covered her mouth with his hand when she tried to scream. Ford said that she was afraid Kavanaugh “might inadvertently kill [her]” during the attack.

    Kavanaugh disputed these claims as well.
