Deborah Ramirez, the second person to accuse Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, said in a statement on Saturday ahead of his confirmation vote that senators are "deliberately ignoring his behavior," The Hill reports.

"As I watch many of the Senators speak and vote on the floor of the Senate I feel like I'm right back at Yale where half the room is laughing and looking the other way. Only this time, instead of drunk college kids, it is US Senators who are deliberately ignoring his behavior. This is how victims are isolated and silenced."
