Kavanaugh Updates: Accused of Allowing Gang-Rapes; 2nd Woman With Separate Allegations

President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill, Sept. 6, 2018. |

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is facing a new firestorm of sexual misconduct allegations involving drunken parties and gang-rapes.

Kavanaugh's nomination process has already been rocked by attempted rape accusations by California professor Christine Blasey Ford, which allegedly occurred during a drunken party in the summer of 1982. Kavanaugh has denied Ford's accusations, with both he and Ford set to testify on Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Two separate new accusations emerged late on Sunday and early on Monday, however. Attorney Michael Avenatti has claimed that he has evidence accusing Kavanaugh and a friend of participating in parties that plied women with drugs and alcohol, and then "allowing" other men to gang-rape them.

Separately, a second woman has come forward accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct at Yale at another drunken party, where she claimed that the Supreme Court nominee forced her to touch his genitals.

Kavanaugh has responded to the second accusation, but top Democrats are calling on the nomination process to be postponed.
