There is now a fourth allegation, and it involves physical assault.
NBC News reports that the Senate Judiciary Committee is inquiring about at least one additional allegation of misconduct against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Republican Senate investigators are reported to have asked Kavanaugh about the new complaint during a phone call Tuesday with Kavanaugh and Republican staff. On that call, Kavanaugh denied the allegation in the letter, and a spokesman for the committee would not comment to reporters.
According to an anonymous complaint sent to Republican Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado, Kavanaugh physically assaulted a woman he socialized with in the Washington, D.C., area in 1998 while he was inebriated.
The sender of the complaint described an evening involving her own daughter, Kavanaugh and several friends in 1998.
“When they left the bar (under the influence of alcohol) they were all shocked when Brett Kavanaugh, shoved her friend up against the wall very aggressively and sexually.”
“There were at least four witnesses including my daughter.” The writer of the letter provided no names but said the alleged victim was still traumatized and had decided to remain anonymous herself.
A Democratic source said the minority wasn’t satisfied by the Republicans’ questions about the incident during the call, calling them cursory, and believed it should be investigated more deeply.
NBC News reached out to the White House for comment, and received none.
When the first claim of sexual assault against Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee came out, many of us said there would likely be more than one Kavanaugh victim. There are.
As Ted Lieu says,
All the allegations have a similar pattern: Kavanaugh becomes a monster when he gets drunk. This kind of abusive and criminal behavior doesn't just happen once.
