Attorney For Deborah Ramirez: FBI Failed To Contact Witnesses


Brett Kavanaugh's freshman year roommate at Yale, James Roche, published an op-ed in Slate on Wednesday night that argues that Kavanaugh explicitly lied and obscured the truth about both his college drinking habits and the slang terms used in his yearbook entry during his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last Thursday.

Other than Ramirez, at least two other women have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct: Christine Blasey Ford, a California professor who claims the judge sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers; and Julie Swetnick, who has accused Kavanaugh of being present during a "gang rape" in the early 1980s.

Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the misconduct allegations against him.

Roche said he saw Kavanaugh return to their dorm suite drunk on multiple occasions, saying he would be "incoherent, stumbling".

Roche writes he does not know if Kavanaugh attacked Ford in high school or exposed himself to Ramirez in college, "But I can say that he lied under oath".

Though he said he has no personal knowledge of the alleged incident and never heard Ramirez speak of it, he told the New Yorker that he could not "imagine her making this up" and that Kavanaugh was "frequently, incoherently drunk" in college.

"The FBI didn't find Debbie's story because they were not looking for it", Roche wrote.

Have scientists found a moon around a planet outside the solar system?
While it definitely looks likely that the newfound moon is there, researchers will still need to do a bit more work to confirm it. Current theories cannot therefore explain how a Neptune-sized moon could have formed in orbit around a Jupiter-sized planet.

It appears he will not be given the opportunity, however.

Ramirez accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself to her at a gathering in college, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed her about her account last week, according to a letter from the attorney representing Ramirez, William Pittard.

According to a statement issued by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, the committee received a report about the FBI's investigation at 2:30 a.m. on Thursday.

Meanwhile, a one-time classmate of the Supreme Court nominee said Monday that Kavanaugh was a habitual heavy drinker-challenging the judge's Senate testimony. For we each believe that telling the truth, no matter how hard, is a moral obligation for our nation's leaders.

"We were in a room together - our beds were 10 feet apart for a couple of months", Roche told CNN.

"An FBI supplemental background investigation that did not include an interview of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford - nor the witnesses who corroborate her testimony - can not be called an investigation", the lawyers said.

The protest began at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday at the Barrett Prettyman Courthouse - where Kavanaugh now sits as a judge - and will culminate at the Supreme Court. Thirty-one Yale law professors canceled classes to facilitate student protests against Judge Kavanaugh, both in New Haven and on Capitol Hill. "And what struck me and made me more interested in speaking out about it is not only did I know that he wasn't telling, you know, the truth, I knew that he knew that he wasn't telling the truth". And, as I've said, we interviewed him and I said to him 'Are you sure that it was Brett Kavanaugh?' He said 'I am 100 percent sure'.
