This afternoon, MSNBC reported that a new accuser has emerged alleging that President Trump’s supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh committed an act of sexual misconduct.  According to the report, a mother anonymously sent a letter to Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) relating an incident at a bar in 1998 in which a drunken Kavanaugh pushed her daughter’s friend up against a wall in a sexually intimidating manner.  The report also indicated that the Senate Judiciary Committee is now investigating the matter.

The date of the alleged incident, in 1998, is many years after the time period of the other incidents alleged by Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick, when Kavanaugh worked for Independent Counsel Ken Starr on the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky affair.
