A second accuser says Kavanaugh exposed himself at a drunken party at Yale University.
Roche, who declined media interviews, said he he did not witness the 1983 act in question: When Debbie Ramiez said Kavanaugh was standing next to her, laughing, pulling up his trousers, after putting his penis in her face, the New Yorker reported on Sunday. This is a smear, plain and simple.
Kent Sinclair, Douglas Rutzen and Mark Osler, were among almost 25 of Kavanaugh's law school classmates who signed a letter August 27 to the Senate Judiciary Committee, praising Kavanaugh's former judiciary accomplishments in support of his confirmation to the nation's highest court.
She came forward a week after Christine Blasey Ford, a California psychologist, accused Kavanaugh of groping her, trying to undress her and covering her mouth with his hand when they were in high school.
Meanwhile, in New Haven, students dressed in black filled YLS's halls, where an organizers told protestors that as a community, they were there to "discuss the very real threat that Brett Kavanaugh poses to this country" and "to show that we take allegations of sexual assault and harassment seriously".

McIlroy and Woods, who shared the first round lead, could not maintain their torrid pace. Another birdie at the first hole, his 10th, took Woods to seven under.
"A classmate of Ramirez's, who declined to be identified because of the partisan battle over Kavanaugh's nomination, said that another student told him about the incident either on the night of the party or in the next day or two. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so", Kavanaugh said in a statement to the magazine.
"I would think an FBI investigation would be warranted", Ramirez is quoted as saying in The New Yorker. Another swath of students traveled to Washington D.C.to protest there.
Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) reportedly said on Monday evening that Ramirez's "counsel has not been terribly cooperative other than to say to read the New Yorker". Both stories have been heavily disputed by numerous witnesses, and Kavanaugh has flatly denied both allegations. In one case, a former student told the Guardian, a prospective clerk was introduced to Kavanaugh at a party that Chua hosted at her home - and was later told that the judge wanted her to apply for the post.
Yale Law School did not respond to a request for interview.
The New Yorker has been preparing the article, which went live at 7:49 p.m. Sunday, for several weeks, during which time Senate Democrats leaped at the opportunity to call for Kavanaugh's withdrawal. About a dozen Mainers were cited by Capitol Police for blocking the hallway, she said.
