During and interview with Republican investigators earlier this week, Brett Kavanaugh was questioned about allegations privately levied against him by a fourth woman, NBC was first to report.

According to a transcript of Kavanaugh’s interview with Judiciary panel staff on Tuesday, Kavanaugh denied the allegation that he pushed a woman up “against the wall very aggressively and sexually” in 1998 when he was leaving a bar and called it “ridiculous.”

The accusation was apparently made by an anonymous woman in a letter to Sen. Cory Gardner’s office (R-CO) last weekend. The writer was recalling an incident in which she allegedly witnessed Kavanaugh shoving another woman, according to the transcript.

Kavanaugh was also questioned about two other anonymous allegations of sexual misconduct during the interview with Republican Judiciary Committee staff, which he denied.
