For some time, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford stood alone in accusing President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee of sexual misconduct. However there was a second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, whose story of a drunk Brett Kavanaugh exposing himself to her while both were students at Yale would come out in The New Yorker.

When asked under oath about Ramirez, Kavanaugh stated he knew nothing about the second accusation until The New Yorker article came out on September 23. But according to texts between two of his friends from Yale—Kerry Berchem and Karen Yarasavage—Kavanaugh and his team reached out to friends who knew both the nominee and Ramirez to try to refute the allegations before the article's publication.

Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, maintained he could prove his innocence regarding allegations of sexual assault against him by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford with the calendars he kept as a young man.

Kavanaugh claimed he and his friends never partied during the week in the summer of 1982 since they all worked. However, his calendars showed a different story.

Thursday, many in the United States watched the highly anticipated testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford before the Senate Judiciary Committee during the confirmation hearing for President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee. Dr. Ford alleged Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when she was 15 years old.
