Christine Blasey Ford: Kavanaugh Accuser Comes Forward

Christine Blasey Ford: Kavanaugh Accuser Comes Forward

In a statement released to USA media, Kavanaugh rejected the woman's claim, made in a letter to the Democrats vetting his nomination, that he tried to force himself on her during a party.

The magazine says the woman sent a letter about the allegation to Democrats.

Ford, now a 51-year-old research psychologist in northern California, told the Post: "I thought he might inadvertently kill me".

Dick Durbin of IL, the No 2 Democrat in the Senate, called on Saturday for the committee vote to be delayed, tweeting: "The American people deserve to know who Judge Kavanaugh is, but Republicans are trying to rush through this nomination while concealing critical parts of the nominee's record".

Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) for holding onto an anonymous letter alleging misconduct by Kavanaugh in high school.

The information came from an individual who wanted to remain anonymous and had declined to press the issue themselves, Feinstein said. "I did not do this back in high school or at any time".

"We are women who have known Brett Kavanaugh for more than 35 years and knew him while he attended high school between 1979 and 1983". When she tried to scream, she said, he put his hand over her mouth.

According to CNN.com, "Kavanaugh physically pushed her into a bedroom, the accuser said".

Allegri should come to Palermo and try to win the Scudetto with us because it's easy to be a phenomenon at Juventus . In January, I think he'll leave for Spain . "When he stays on the bench, it's down to that phenomenon, Allegri".

According to the New Yorker, she claims that "during the party, Kavanaugh held her down and that attempted to force himself on her".

"In particular, he has always treated women with decency and respect", the letter said. "For three months, she said nothing, nothing, zero, nada, zilch".

Though it barely seemed possible, Democrats in Washington have hit a new low with their most-recent antics around Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court.

According to a source cited by the New Yorker, Feinstein learned of the alleged incident in July and while her staff members mentioned it to other Democratic lawmakers, they did not share the letter with them. "I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities".

The support of only two Republicans - Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska - was thought to be in question.

The FBI confirmed that it received the information Wednesday evening and included it in Kavanaugh's background file, which is maintained as part of his nomination. She said a reporter from Buzzfeed approached her outside her college classroom and another reporter was calling her colleagues. "Every Democrat and every Republican voted for him", she said.

Kavanaugh has denied any wrongdoing. The letter was also shared with Feinstein in July.

Hill said in a statement to Politico, "The reluctance of someone to come forward demonstrates that even in the #MeToo era, it remains incredibly hard to report harassment, abuse or assault by people in power".
