Bring It On: Conservatives Are Ready and Willing to Re-Fight the Kavanaugh War

The bizarre allegation, which was shopped around during the confirmation brouhaha and evidently went nowhere, comes from a male former Yale student (and Clinton-connected attorney) named Max Stier, who claimed to have recalled “friends” pushing Kavanaugh’s genitalia into a female classmate’s hand at a party.  Once again, the woman in question does not remember this happening.  The accusation is so weak, so thin, so unverifiable that even the ravenous Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats — who shamefully pounced on the ludicrous, discredited ‘serial gang rape’ smear as the occasion to call for Kavanaugh’s withdrawal — did not pursue it at the time.  John McCormack of National Review notes that the lack of corroboration from the supposed “victim” was not originally mentioned in the Times story, which he calls, “one of the worst cases of journalistic malpractice in recent memory” (the Times eventually updated the story to reflect this enormously important fact).  What seems clear is that Mr. Stier’s claims were meant to buttress an allegation from another Yale woman, Deborah Ramirez, whose story was litigated at length in 2018:

The new allegation is supposed to help lend credence to the on-the-record allegation that Kavanaugh’s Yale classmate Deborah Ramirez made in 2018. Pogrebin and Kelly sum up Ramirez’s allegation: “She and some classmates had been drinking heavily when, she says, a freshman named Brett Kavanaugh pulled down his pants and thrust his penis at her, prompting her to swat it away and inadvertently touch it. Some of the onlookers, who had been passing around a fake penis earlier in the evening, laughed.”

Allow me to remind you that all of the people who Ramirez identified as eyewitnesses to this episode say that it did not happen, and that Ramirez herself was not sure if she had the right guy.  She “assessed” her decades-old memory with the assistance of her very liberal legal team, and phoned up old classmates in an attempt to crowd-source a recollection — telling some of them that she wasn’t even sure what truly happened:
