Trump publicly doubts second Kavanaugh accuser

President Trump publicly cast doubt on the allegations of Deborah Ramirez, the second woman to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, while speaking to reporters at the United Nations General Assembly.

"The second accuser has nothing. She thinks maybe it could have been him, maybe not. She admits that she was drunk. She admits that there are time lapses...She said well it might not be him, and there were gaps, and she was totally inebriated and all messed up. She doesn’t know it was him but it might have been him and ‘Oh gee let’s not make him a Supreme Court judge because of that.’...This is a con game being played by the Democrats."
