Judiciary Releases Latest Kavanaugh Allegation

Judge Brett Kavanaugh has denied yet another allegation of sexual misconduct, this one an anonymous e-mail received by Democratic Judiciary Committee member Corey Booker (D-N.J.).

That is according to the Senate Judiciary Committee, which released the e-mail as well as Kavanaugh's flat denial that "any such event ever happened."

"We have no reason to assign the letter credibility, and even if we did, we’d have no way to investigate the allegation as it was made anonymously and cannot be corroborated," said Taylor Foy, communications director for the committee.

The newest sexual assault/misconduct allegation--there have been a total of five so far, two anonymous--came on the eve of the committee's hearing (https://www.multichannel.com/news/judiciary-outlines-potentially-historic-kavanaugh-hearing) on the first allegation, by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, featuring testimony of both Ford and Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh has denied all allegations against him.
