Boulder Woman Seeking FBI Investigation on Brett Kavanaugh Accusations

September 25, 2018

The Boulder woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct is in contact with the Senate Judiciary Committee and is seeking an FBI investigation, according to her attorney.

Deborah Ramirez’s attorney John Clune on Tuesday morning released a statement on Twitter.

“We are in contact with the Senate Judiciary Committee to determine the best process to provide senators with additional information,” Clune wrote. “We remain adamant that an FBI investigation, where all witnesses are questioned under threat of perjury, is the only way to get the truth. Our client remains willing to cooperate with such an inquiry.”

Clune, an experienced Title IX litigator with the Boulder firm Hutchinson Black and Cook, confirmed with the Daily Camera he is now representing Ramirez.

Ramirez, 53, told The New Yorker that Kavanaugh exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party, thrust his penis in her face, and caused her to touch it without her consent as she pushed him away.

A south Boulder resident, Ramirez works for Boulder County’s Department of Housing and Human Services and is also a board member for Safehouse Progressive Alliance for Nonviolence in Boulder.

Ramirez is the second woman to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct. Christine Blasey Ford said Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her as a teenager, and the Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a hearing Thursday.
