The friend of a woman who alleges Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during their time at Yale University said Sunday that she doesn’t feel the claim was investigated as best as it could have been.

Jennifer Klaus, an emergency veterinarian who lives in Brookline, is a friend of Deborah Ramirez, who alleged Kavanaugh exposed his genitals to her at a Yale party in the early 1980s. The two women met at Yale through mutual friends.

“I don’t think this was investigated to the full extent,’’ Klaus said in a phone interview Sunday evening, adding she was not present when the alleged incident occurred, but that she believed Ramirez.
