On Sunday, journalist Ronan Farrow published a piece for The New Yorker that reported on the 2nd woman to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual impropriety. Deborah Ramirez, who attended Yale at the same time as Kavanaugh, claims that the judge acted inappropriately toward her at a party.
According to Ramirez, she became inebriated at the party and was sitting around with some of her fellow students. She alleges that at one point, while she was drunk on the floor, Kavanaugh put his genitals close to her face. She claims that she inadvertently touched his penis as she pushed him away.
Similar to Christine Ford, Kavanaugh’s first accuser, Ramirez’s story has some serious credibility issues. Try not to be too surprised.
deborah Ramirez’s Story Lacks Credibility
There are many flaws in Ramirez’s assertions. For starters, she admitted that her memory is hazy because she drank heavily. She stated that she remembered Kavanaugh’s actions after “assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney.” Obviously, this statement already casts doubt on her story.
Another point of contention is the fact that while Ramirez named some of the people who were in the group, none of them corroborated her story. In fact, two of the individuals who were present insist that the incident never occurred. Moreover, the wife of one of the students involved was a close friend of the accuser said:
“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.”
Lastly, Ramirez unintentionally tells us what her true motivations are for coming forward with this story just as Kavanaugh was about to be confirmed. In her interview with The New Yorker, she said: “What does it mean, that this person has a role in defining women’s rights in our future?”
Ramirez parroted the exact argument the left has been given for stopping Kavanaugh’s appointment to the Supreme Court. Moreover, she gave her story to Democratic lawmakers through her civil rights attorney instead of going to the Senate Judiciary committee.
Like Ford, Ramirez could have come forward at any point during the judge’s career. Indeed, Ramirez could have brought these allegations when Kavanaugh was first announced as the nominee. But she didn’t. Her actions reek of political motivation.
Even The Media Doubts Her Claims
It is surprising that even the media does not seem to believe Ramirez’s claims. Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow — who penned the piece for The New Yorker, were questioned about the content of the article. On NBC’s Today show, host Savannah Guthrie pointed out that The New York Times was not able to find any witnesses who could verify Ramirez’s story. Newsbusters reported on the various journalists who had questions about Ramirez’s accusations.
“Now, reading the tea leaves of your own story, it doesn’t seem to me that The New Yorker found anyone with firsthand knowledge either. Is there corroboration?” Guthrie asked. Mayer admitted that there was nobody who could corroborate Ramirez’s claims.
On ABC’s Good Morning America, host George Stephanopoulos grilled Farrow on the assertions made in the article. He also confirmed that there were no eyewitnesses. Oddly enough, Farrow argued that Ramirez taking six days to remember the incident was somehow proof that she is telling the truth:
“And I think the fact that she took several days to consider and really carefully make sure that she had an evidentiary basis for this, and other people were backing her account who had heard at the time, had been told, speaks well of her level of caution. This is not the behavior of someone who is fabricating something.”
Other journalists on the cable news circuit also challenged the accuser’s claims. When the left-wing establishment media is questioning the story of a Democrat who is smearing a conservative, you know there’s something off about the story, right?
The Left’s Last-Ditch Effort Is Doomed
Ramirez’s accusations may seem more compelling than Ford’s at first glance, but after looking deeper, it is not difficult to see that her story does not stand up to scrutiny. However, it is not surprising that the left would promote unsubstantiated allegations to prevent a conservative justice from being confirmed. After all, the Supreme Court is one of their primary governmental vehicles by which they push their agenda on the American people.
The left is willing to pull out all the stops to get their way — even if it means smearing a man who does not deserve it. It’s unlikely that the left will be able to derail Kavanaugh’s appointment with these accusations, and it appears that they know it. But it looks like he is not out of the woods yet. Creepy Porn Lawyer Michael Avenatti recently claimed that he has evidence that Kavanaugh ran a “gang rape” ring with his friend Mark Judge. Today, he stated that a 3rd accuser would come forward with allegations against the judge that are “100 percent credible.”
Will Avenatti’s accuser be the nail in the coffin? Probably not. But either way, it appears we will have at least another week of wall-to-wall Kavanaugh coverage.
