Numerous Democratic presidential candidates are calling for new investigations into Brett Kavanaugh and a past FBI probe into his behavior as another sexual misconduct accusation has been levied against the Supreme Court justice. The new allegation surfaced on Saturday (September 14) as part of a New York Times article.

Max Stier, a college classmate of Kavanaugh’s, told the New York Times he saw Kavanaugh drunk with his pants down at a Yale University party in the early 1980s where his friends pushed his penis into the hands of a female student.

The allegation is similar to the one levied against Kavanaugh last year by Deborah Ramirez, another former classmate. Stier reportedly informed senators and the FBI of the incident during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings last year, but it was never investigated by the bureau.

The newest allegations also follow the 2018 Christine Blasey Ford hearings during which she publicly accused Kavanaugh of pinning her to a bed and trying to take her clothes off during a high school party.

Democrats running for president quickly reacted to the revelation, calling for a new investigation and for Kavanaugh’s impeachment.
