WASHINGTON (1010 WINS) -- A fourth woman is accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, NBC News reported Wednesday night.

According to its report, citing unnamed sources and a letter it obtained, the Senate Judiciary Committee is inquiring about the woman's allegations: Republican Senate investigators asked Kavanaugh about the new complaint during a phone call Tuesday. Kavanaugh denied the allegation.

NBC reports, "According to an anonymous complaint sent to Republican Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado, Kavanaugh physically assaulted a woman he socialized with in the Washington, D.C., area in 1998 while he was inebriated."

The sender of the complaint wrote in the letter, "When they left the bar (under the influence of alcohol) they were all shocked when Brett Kavanaugh, shoved her friend up against the wall very aggressively and sexually."

The new accusation comes on the eve of Kavanaugh's hearing Thursday.
