Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said through a spokesperson on Sunday that the board will “attempt to evaluate” the most recent allegation of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual assault and of exposing himself to two former classmates, Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez, whose claims were published by The New Yorker over the weekend.
"Yet again, Senate Democrats actively withheld information from the rest of the committee only to drop information at politically opportune moments," Grassley’s spokesperson said in a statement, according to The Hill.
The senator also accused Democrats of withholding the allegation made by Ford.
The spokesperson added that Democrats seem “more interested in a political takedown” than “pursuing allegations through a bipartisan and professional” probe.
“Of course, we will attempt to evaluate these new claims," the statement read.
"The committee’s majority staff learned the allegations made by Deborah Ramirez about Judge Kavanaugh from this evening’s New Yorker report," it continued. "Neither she nor her legal representative have contacted the chairman’s office. The article reports that Democratic staff were aware of these allegations, but they never informed Republican staff."
