Kavanaugh accuser willing to testify, her lawyer says

Kavanaugh Denies Allegation Of Sexual Misconduct During High School

After sexual assault allegations against the Supreme Court nominee are made by California professor Christine Ford, Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano explains what's next.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Christine Blasey Ford said that as a high school student in suburban Maryland decades earlier, a "stumbling drunk" Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, groped her and attempted to remove her clothing.

"I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation", Kavanaugh said. The two were classmates at prestigious Georgetown Preparatory School.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer has already said that to push through a vote on Thursday would be an "insult" to American women.

"For me, we can't vote until we hear more", Flake told the Washington Post.

Grassley's office says it will proceed with the planned Judiciary committee vote on Kavanaugh's nomination next week. Feinstein said she notified federal investigators about the letter, and the FBI confirmed it has included the information in the letter in Kavanaugh's background file, which all senators can read. Kavanaugh would also probably be asked to appear before senators.

US President Donald Trump is hoping to establish a conservative majority on the Supreme Court with appointment of Brett Kavanaugh. Female voters preferred Democratic candidates over Republican ones by 54 per cent to 33 per cent, while 62 per cent of women disapproved of Trump's job performance, according to an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll in July.

Kavanaugh covered her mouth with his hand when she tried to yell, Ford alleged, and she was able to break free when Judge jumped on top of them, "toppling" them over, the Post reported.




"In weighing her privacy and the consequences to herself and her family, she has demonstrated her willingness to risk these factors to present the truth", Eshoo said. Brett Kavanaugh physically and sexually assaulted me during high school in the early 1980's.

She said: "He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing".

In spite of passing a lie detector test, she decided in August not to step out publicly, citing the effect stepping forward would have on her and her family. Kavanaugh would have been 17 at the end of his junior year at Georgetown Prep. His friend, Mark Judge, has said he has no memory of it.

Ford said she does not remember how the gathering came together the night of the incident. She recalled both her own and Justice Antonin Scalia's "truly bipartisan" hearings. However, the paper reports, she declined to comment on the record at that time.

Ford also told the Post the event likely contributed to the now-51-year-old's anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.

She said she recalls a small family room where she and a handful of others drank beer together that night. "She is a credible person". And she was outed after she had made the decision not to come forward'. She said if anyone was going to tell her story, she wanted to be the one to tell it. She engaged Debra Katz, a Washington lawyer known for her work on sexual harassment cases.

"Let me be very clear on behalf of the president with whom I've spoken at length about this", Conway said. Clinton eventually settled the lawsuit with Jones for $850,000.
