Brett Kavanaugh: Trump doubts 'drunk' sex assault accuser
US President Donald Trump has cast doubt on a woman who accuses his Supreme Court nominee of misconduct as she was intoxicated and "messed up".
"The second accuser has nothing," Mr Trump told reporters at the UN. "She admits that she was drunk."
On Sunday, a former Yale classmate said Brett Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party in the 1980s.
Judge Kavanaugh and another accuser from his high school years this week testify before a US Senate panel.
The Senate Judiciary Committee has announced it will meet on whether to move forward with Judge Kavanaugh's nomination on Friday, a day after the panel hears from the Supreme Court pick and his first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford.
"The second accuser doesn't even know, she thinks maybe it could have been him, maybe not," Mr Trump said during a meeting at the UN in New York with the Colombia president on Tuesday.
"This is a person and this is a series of statements that's going to take one of the most talented, one of the greatest intellects from a judicial standpoint in our country, going to keep him off the United States Supreme Court."
On Sunday, Deborah Ramirez, a Yale university classmate of Judge Kavanaugh, that he had once exposed himself to her at a dormitory party.
Ms Ramirez, 53, said she ended up touching his genitals while attempting to push him away.
The article said Ms Ramirez acknowledges gaps in her memory caused by alcohol that night.
