Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh's sexual misconduct scandal just got a lot messier.

This Sunday, after he was accused of sexual assault by another woman, the judge denied the claims, calling them insulting and completely untrue.

RadarOnline.com readers know the woman, Deborah Ramirez, 53, who went to Yale University with Kavanaugh, 53, accused him of having "thrust his penis in her face and caused her to touch it without her consent" during a dorm party in the 1980s.

"I was embarrassed and ashamed and humiliated," she recalled.

Ramirez told The New Yorker that she decided to not come forward until now, because she had been drinking the night of the bash and suffered "gaps in her memory" in regard to that night.

After the magazine published Ramirez's claims, Kavanaugh shared a statement denying the claims.

"This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen," he said. "The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple."

Kavanaugh added that he was looking forward to proving his innocence when testifying to the Senate Judiciary Committee this week.

"I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name — and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building — against these last-minute allegations," he said.

Though the case is being thoroughly investigated, President Donald Trump's feelings about the judge have not changed, and he still fully supports him and his nomination.

"This claim is denied by all who were said to be present and is wholly inconsistent with what many women and men who knew Judge Kavanaugh at the time in college say," said White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec.

"The White House stands firmly behind Judge Kavanaugh."
