Brett and Ashley Kavanaugh went on Fox News yesterday for an exclusive interview, in which Judge Kavanaugh denied two two sexual misconduct allegations leveled against him by former classmates.

And Deborah Ramirez, the second accuser that has come forward in recent days, is asking for an FBI investigation into the incident she detailed to the New Yorker.
