John Clune, Ramirez’s attorney, said investigators want to interview her and that she has agreed to cooperate.
President Donald Trump granted the probe Friday after senate leaders called on the delay of a final vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination. Senators asked Trump to allow for a one-week investigation into the “current credible allegations.”
Trump ultimately bowed to Democrats’ demands after Republicans did not have enough votes.
Ramirez has accused Kavanaugh of exposing his genitals to her at a house party in the 80s while they were both students at Yale University.
First reported by the New Yorker, Ramirez was playing a drinking game at a house party and was drunk. That’s when a fellow student pointed a plastic penis at her, prompting Kavanaugh to put his penis in front of her face, causing her to accidentally touch it as she pushed him away.
Ramirez is one of three women accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.
