SCOTUS Nominee Uses Virgin Defense Against Sexual Assault Allegations Roman White September 25, 2018 Politics In an attempt to clear his name of any wrongdoing, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee conducted an interview with Fox News on Monday as he battles allegations of sexual misconduct during his teenage years. Brett Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual misconduct by two women, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, and Deborah Ramirez, the former of whom went to high school with Kavanaugh and the latter who attended Yale University with the nominee. Kavanaugh defended himself against the accusations telling Fox News’ Martha MacCallum that he “did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school and for many years after.” .@marthamaccallum joined #TheFive to discuss her exclusive interview with Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his wife, airing tonight at 7p ET on Fox News Channel. https://t.co/QFmLfIwW4R pic.twitter.com/QzymMZa2KV — Fox News (@FoxNews) September 24, 2018 Dr. Blasey Ford was the first to come forward against the U.S. District Court Judge claiming that a drunken Kavanaugh climbed on top of Blasey Ford and attempted to rape her. Blasey Ford’s accounts have been corroborated by therapist notes from 2012. Following these allegations, Congress agreed to push back the vote that would have most likely confirmed Kavanaugh’s seat at the Supreme Court to sit down with with the accused and the accuser in a public hearing that is scheduled for Thursday. On Sunday, The New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow reported that Deborah Ramirez had her own experience with Kavanaugh who allegedly flashed Ramirez his genitals during a party. Ramirez admits that her memory from the day is hazy, but was sure that Kavanaugh was the one who flashed his genitalia in her face. Kavanaugh has denied both allegations. Many congressional Republicans have already pledged their support of Kavanaugh regardless of what happens. Kavanaugh accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as well as some congressional Democrats have called for an FBI investigation into the claims. Should Kavanaugh get confirmed into the Supreme Court, his conservative viewpoints will shift the median ideology of the line Supreme Court to the right. Kavanaugh would also be Trump’s second Supreme Court appointee after previously appointing Justice Neil Gorsuch to the court.
