Judge Brett Kavanaugh and his staff were reportedly sending text messages to former classmates to underplay allegations that he exposed himself during a party at Yale University. One of Kavanaugh’s friends said in a message that she corresponded with “Brett” and “Brett’s guy.” A recipient of the text messages said she forwarded them to the FBI because “they merit investigation by the FBI and the Senate.” She said she conveyed the contents of the messages to the FBI twice, but has not heard back as of Monday morning. The timing of the text messages sent from Kavanaugh and members of his team may renew the inquiry surrounding testimony he gave to the Judiciary Committee last week. Kavanaugh previously testified that he had not discussed or heard of Ramirez’s allegations from The New Yorker. But Kavanaugh later appeared to contradict himself by saying he had heard that one of his accusers was “calling around to classmates trying to see if they remembered it.”

Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, and his staff were reportedly sending text messages to former classmates to underplay allegations that he exposed himself during a party at Yale University.

The text messages, which were obtained by NBC News, were reportedly between Kavanaugh’s friends, Kerry Berchem and Karen Yarasavage. Based on the contents of the messages, Kavanaugh himself may reached out to his classmates to undercut the claims made by former classmate Deborah Ramirez, who told The New Yorker that Kavanaugh had exposed himself in front of others at a dorm-room party during the 1983-84 school year.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
