Troubling developments in the case for Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination. In an open letter posted to Medium.com, some 600 former Yale students (dating from the 80’s until 2018) publicly backed his latest accuser Deborah Ramirez. While the letter doesn’t quite go into all of the nitty details, it does, go into depth about how the environment at Yale over the years has been “toxifying”.
“We are coming forward as women of Yale because we have a shared experience of the environment that shaped not only Judge Kavanaugh’s life and career, but our own,” the open letter states.
“We ask that she be afforded respect and security to protect her privacy, quality of life, and emotional stability,” the letter says.
It has now emerged that it was not actually Ramirez who first came forward with her account of Kavanaugh’s lewd behavior. According to Vox, her Yale classmates were actually the ones who came forward in July in a flurry of controversial e-mails.
