Montgomery County police have interviewed a woman who could potentially be Brett Kavanaugh's fourth accuser.

Police in Montgomery County, Maryland are looking into a possible fourth woman with sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, according to the Montgomery County Sentinel.

> Investigators in Montgomery County confirmed Monday they’re aware of a potential second sexual assault complaint in the county against former Georgetown Prep student and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.


> While investigators weren’t specific and spoke on background, they said they are looking at allegations against Kavanaugh during his senior year in high school after an anonymous witness came forward this weekend.

The woman’s accusations potentially would be the fourth against Kavanaugh, after Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and an as yet unnamed woman reportedly represented by attorney Michael Avenatti.

Authorities in Maryland said it is unclear whether the woman they have interviewed could be the same individual Avenatti mentioned in an email to the Senate Judiciary Committee:

> In an email to Mike Davis, the chief counsel for nominations for the Senate Judiciary Committee, Avenatti said he had evidence that at house parties in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh and his friend [Mark] Judge and others plied women with alcohol and drugs, “In order to allow a ‘train’ of men to subsequently gang rape them.”

Montgomery County Police Chief Tom Manger told the Sentinel the department is “prepared to investigate if the victim wants to report to us, and we can determine it occurred in the county.”

> One issue police will have to determine is whether the alleged assault described by Ford occurred in Chevy Chase, Maryland or in Washington D.C. “If it is in D.C. we would not have jurisdiction,” Manger said.

To date, both Kavanaugh and Judge have denied all allegations against them.
