Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual assault

Brett Kavanaugh, a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, was accused of sexual assault in 2018.

Brett Kavanaugh, a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, was accused of sexual assault in 2018.Brett Kavanaugh was a nominee for Supreme Court judge proposed by President Donald Trump in 2018 when he was accused of rape charges and sexual misconduct.

Christine Blasey Ford, a 51-year-old research psychologist, accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in the 1980s, when they were both high school students in suburban Maryland. Deborah Ramirez also accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in the 1983-1984 academic year at Yale University.

According to a report by the New York Times, Kavanaugh’s former classmate Max Stier states that he saw Kavanaugh with his pants down in a dormitory. Kavanaugh's friends then pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.

Another woman named Julie Swetnick said Kavanaugh lined up with other boys, including his close friend Mark Judge, waiting to assault girls at many parties—and that she once was a victim herself. Swetnick alleged that Kavanaugh and others spiked girls' drinks at parties to make it easier for them to gang-rape.

However, all the allegations have been indignantly denied by Kavanaugh.
