When The New Yorker reported Sunday on Deborah Ramirez's claims of sexual misconduct decades ago by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, it did not confirm her story with other eyewitnesses, according to a report Monday.

The New York Times reported it interviewed "several dozen people over the past week" in a failed attempt to confirm Ramirez's story.

Ramirez, who attended Yale University with Kavanaugh, claims, during a drunken dormitory party in their freshman year, the nominee exposed his penis to her and coerced her to touch it.

Kavanaugh denied the allegation, calling it "a smear, plain and simple."

The Times reports it had interviewed several dozen people over the past week in an attempt to corroborate her story, and found no witnesses with firsthand knowledge.

Ramirez also contacted former Yale classmates asking if they recalled the incident and told some of them she was not sure Kavanaugh was the one who exposed himself, the Times reported.
