Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court has been further jeopardized amid new accusations of sexual misconduct from Deborah Ramirez. Ramirez has accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct at a party his freshman year at Yale, claiming that he exposed himself to her while she was intoxicated.  

Since coming forward with her story in the New Yorker, Ramirez has undergone intense scrutiny, with major publications such as the New York Times reporting that they were unable to find a single witness to corroborate her claims after interviewing “several dozen” individuals.

Ramirez’s accusation comes on top of a prior sexual assault accusation brought forth by Christine Blasey Ford, who is set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday. Ford alleges that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school house party in the early 1980s.

These recent developments have caused everyone in Washington to dig in their heels. Kellyanne Conway recently made the morning rounds defending Kavanaugh, saying that this all was beginning to feel like a “vast left-wing conspiracy.” Judge Kavanaugh has sent a letter to the Senate, which reads, “I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process. The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out.”

With Democrats still sticking to the script of “delay a vote and investigate,” Republicans wanting to push forward on a vote as soon as possible, and Blasey Ford set to testify this week, many pundits and analysts in the Twittersphere are wildly speculating on whether Kavanaugh will make it out of this with a seat on the highest court on the land.

Amid recent accusations, and the handling of this situation by Democrats and Republicans, do you think Brett Kavanaugh should be confirmed? Let us know in the poll below!
