Trumps Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh accused of ‘sexual assault

Woman Accusing Kavanaugh of Sexual Misconduct Comes Forward Trumps Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh accused of ‘sexual assault

"These are all the ills that I was trying to avoid", she said. In her letter, she said she wanted her allegation to be kept confidential, but she said she has made a decision to finally speak publicly amid heightened media scrutiny, diminishing privacy, and falsehoods about her story.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said Sunday he was working on setting up bipartisan calls to keep Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation on track. She told The Post that she ran from the room, briefly locked herself in a bathroom and then fled the house.

The allegations against Kavanaugh are reminiscent of accusations of indecency and abuse by Clarence Thomas that emerged when he was nominated for the Supreme Court. And of course, the White House has responded by sending out letters from women who knew Kavanaugh in high school. Her Holton-Arms friends mostly hung out with boys from the Landon School, she said, but for a period of several months socialized regularly with students from Georgetown Prep. "Senator Feinstein should publicly release the letter she received back in July so that everyone can know what she's known for weeks".

"I think it derailed me substantially for four or five years", Ford said, adding that she faced social and academic struggles and had trouble having healthy relationships with men.

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acting as a responsible force in American political life, Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court would be withdrawn by the White House as quickly as possible.

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". They both laughed as Kavanaugh tried to disrobe me in their highly inebriated state. She says Kavanaugh groped her over her clothes, grinded his body against hers and tried to take off her one-piece swimsuit and the outfit she wore over it. Kavanaugh covered her mouth with his hand when she tried to scream, she says, and escaped when Judge jumped on them.

"Christine Blasey Ford courageously stepped forward to tell her story - it is a credible and serious allegation". If Ranking Member Feinstein and other Committee Democrats took this claim seriously, they should have brought it to the full Committee's attention much earlier. "A vote on Kavanaugh's nomination must be delayed until there is a thorough investigation", Sen.

Last week, Kavanaugh, the Republican president's second nominee for a lifetime appointment to the nation's highest court, said he "categorically and unequivocally" denied the allegations.

Mr Kavanaugh's nomination has sharply divided an already closely split Senate, with most Democrats opposing him and most Republicans supporting him.

Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell said he would like to have Mr Kavanaugh confirmed by 1 October, the start of the Supreme Court's new term. Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, who honored Ford's request for confidentiality but referred the matter to Federal Bureau of Investigation.

No one was told of the incident until 2012, when Ford and her husband went to couples therapy.

California professor Christine Blasey Ford tells the newspaper that Kavanaugh and a friend corralled her in a bedroom during a gathering at a house in Maryland in the early 1980s. It's a true "she said, he said" - or, rather, "they said", since two people deny this incident ever happened.
