Oops! Ronan Farrow accidentally threw Senate Dems under the bus on second accuser. Big time.

Journalist Ronan Farrow claimed congressional Democrats went looking for a second accuser to come forward against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and said they’ve put the woman in an awkward position and have forced her to publicly come forward.

“[Deborah Ramirez] came forward because Senate Democrats began looking at this claim,” Farrow said on “Good Morning America” Monday.

“She did not flag this for those Democrats. This came to the attention of people on the Hill independently and it’s really cornered her into an awkward position,” he said. “She said, point-blank, I don’t want to ruin anyone’s life, but she feels this is a serious claim. She considers her own memories credible and she felt it was important that she tell her story before others did without her consent.”

Host George Stephanopoulos asked Farrow if the timing of his latest pieceabout Kavanaugh’s college days was responsible journalism this close to accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s hearing and Farrow defended his work and said he takes it “extremely seriously.”

“I just want to stress very clearly — we take reporting of this type extremely seriously,” Farrow said. “The evidentiary basis for this, the number of witnesses who were told at the time is strong. It’s in excess of what we typically see.”

“The deal with sexual assault claims is very often that there aren’t multiple people willing to say they witnessed it in the room. And the individuals who were most primary to this are people she alleged were egging Brett Kavanaugh on,” he added.
