'Salacious and Outrageous': Ingraham Calls Out New Yorker's Reporting on 2nd Kavanaugh Accusation
In her Angle commentary Monday night, Laura Ingraham criticized The New Yorker for its reporting on a sexual misconduct accusation against Brett Kavanaugh.
Debbie Ramirez has asked for an FBI investigation into Kavanaugh, alleging that he exposed himself to her at a college party in the 1980s.
The accusation is the second against the Supreme Court nominee, as a hearing between Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford is set for Thursday.
"Whatever the Democrats are investigating, it lacks a witness," Ingraham said, adding that The New Yorker piece noted that no one actually witnessed the alleged assault Ramirez is claiming occurred.
Ingraham mocked The New Yorker's "great reporting" that a classmate of Ramirez's heard about the alleged incident from someone else.
Ingraham emphasized that The New York Times investigated Ramirez's claim, but did not report it because it could not be corroborated.
She added that Senate Democrats wanted to delay the hearing between Kavanaugh and Ford because they wanted to the media to report on a new claim.
"They needed their pals in the media to have additional time to jump on what they were investigating and find someone, anyone, who knew Kavanaugh and could level a salacious, outrageous charge against him," she said.

She said that the "Democrat jackals" on the Senate Judiciary Committee are "circling" and questioning Kavanaugh's credibility amid the accusations against him.
"This is about denying Donald Trump a fifth vote on the Supreme Court," she said.
