Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, on Monday said the Yale classmate who said he witnessed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's friends push Kavanaugh's penis into the hand of a female student at a party in the 1980s never contacted the Senate panel during Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing, The Washington Times reports.

"That person, Mr. Stier, didn't reach out or provide information to the committee majority," Grassley, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said during a Senate floor speech. "My office never received anything from Mr. Stier or his unnamed friends."

"Had my staff received substantive allegations or had he approached me or my staff, we would have attempted to take a statement and interview him," he said

The New York Times over the weekend published a story of an allegation of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh from his time as a student at Yale.

The claim hinged on the recollection of a Yale classmate who the news outlet reported contacted the FBI and lawmakers during Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing. The essay was based on a forthcoming book written by two Times reporters.

Grassley, who oversaw Kavanaugh’s confirmation process, said his staff spoke with 45 individuals and took 25 written statements.

"In the end, there was no credible evidence to support any of the allegations," Grassley said.
