A new allegation of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is emerging. The New Yorker reports a woman named Deborah Ramirez claims Kavanaugh exposed himself in front of her at a party when he was a freshman at Yale University. Ramirez says the incident happened at a drunken dorm room party. Kavanaugh said in a statement that the incident did not happen and called the allegation a "smear, plain and simple." A White House statement also called it a "coordinated smear campaign by the Democrats.
Meanwhile, the lawyer for adult film star Stormy Daniels says he's representing a woman who has information about Kavanaugh. Attorney Michael Avenatti tweeted that his client has "credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge." Dr. Christine Blasey Ford claims Judge was in the room when Kavanaugh pinned her down and groped her when they were teens. Avenatti says he'll be demanding to present testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee and added that Kavanaugh's nomination should be withdrawn. Avenatti also made it clear that his client is not a woman who came forward in The New Yorker magazine with a second allegation of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh.

We will be demanding the opportunity to present testimony to the committee and will likewise be demanding that Judge and others be subpoenaed to testify.
