Brett Kavanaugh accuser speaks about alleged sexual misconduct

Woman Accusing Kavanaugh of Sexual Misconduct Comes Forward

Christine Blasey Ford, 51, said that in the early 1980s when she and Brett Kavanaugh were both at high school they attended a house party in Maryland, where she claims that the future judge pinned her down on a bed, groped her and tried to remove her clothes.

However, if Ms. Ford wishes to provide information to the Committee, I would gladly listen to what she has to say and compare that against all the other information we have received about Judge Kavanaugh.

Responding to the latest developments in the Kavanaugh nomination, Foy had said, "It's disturbing that these uncorroborated allegations from more than 35 years ago, during high school, would surface on the eve of a committee vote". Kavanaugh, the Republican president's second nominee for a lifetime appointment to the nation's highest court, has denied the allegations.

Grassley ripped ranking committee Democrat Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) for sitting on the story-she was first made aware of the charge in a letter from Ford in July-and said if Democrats took it seriously, it should have been brought to his attention "much earlier".

As Democrats, led by Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY, called for a delay in the vote, two committee Republicans - all 11 on the GOP side are men - Sens. She passed a polygraph test about the allegations at the advice of her lawyer in August.

Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill were blindsided by The Post's report, having believed that the woman would probably remain anonymous.

Democrats surely were hoping the letter would prompt a federal inquiry and stall Kavanaugh's confirmation until after the midterm elections, when they hope to take over the Senate.

Ford said the schoolmate jumped on top of them, which somehow allowed her to escape.

If the Republican Party cared even slightly about its standing with American women, let alone acting as a responsible force in American political life, Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court would be withdrawn by the White House as quickly as possible. 'He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing'.




But now Ford's decision to put her name behind the accusations - made after weeks of reluctance - will nearly certainly intensify the push by Democrats to delay Kavanaugh's Senate confirmation vote.

The White House's response to the allegation raises the cultural stakes of the fight. "Why suffer through the annihilation if it's not going to matter?" she said.

Earlier this week Mr Kavanaugh strenuously denied the accusations.

Part of the notes say that Ford told the therapist four boys were involved in the alleged attack, according to the Post, but Ford said this was written in error. "I thought he might inadvertently kill me."-Professor Ford about -Kavanaugh assault". She said she often spent time in the summer at the Columbia Country Club pool in Chevy Chase, where in those pre-cellphone days, teenagers learned about gatherings via word of mouth.

According to the Post, Ford told her husband and a therapist about the assault years before Kavanaugh was close to a Supreme Court nomination.

Senator Bob Corker, Republican of Tennessee, who isn't a member of the panel but whose vote is critical to confirmation, also doesn't want the committee to vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation until Ford's allegations can be heard, said his spokeswoman, Micah Johnson.

Katz said on Monday that her client considers Kavanaugh's alleged actions an attempted rape.

"It has always been Mrs. Ford's decision whether to come forward publicly". Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly or Heidi Heitkamp, all of whom announced support for Trump appointee Justice Neil Gorsuch after his confirmation hearing.

Ford told the Post she chose to come forward after watching portions of her story come out without her permission.
