Brett Kavanaugh Accuser Opens Up About the Alleged Sexual Assault

In a lengthy interview-article with the Post, Christine Blasey Ford described the 1980s incident, which she says took place at a home in suburban Montgomery County, Maryland.

While his friend watched, Ford recounts to The Post, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed on her back and groped her over her clothes, grinding against and attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it. Ford says that she even tried to scream for help during the ordeal, but Kavanaugh quickly covered her mouth with his hand. She says both Kavanaugh and Judge were "stumbling drunk", and Judge eventually jumped on top of both of them, allowing her to struggle free and lock herself in the bathroom until the boys left.

Allegations that Trump's SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh attempted to rape a woman when he was in high school emerged this past week.

Federal Bureau of Investigation request: Diane Feinstein has referred a letter she has received to the Justice Department. Ford made a decision to reveal her identity after news of her letter to Feinstein leaked.

The woman who wrote the letter reportedly wishes to remain anonymous and does not want to press charges or move forward with the complaint. Judge's denial relies on his assertion that he "never saw Brett act that way".

HIRONO: Judge Kavanaugh, Chief Justice John Roberts has recognized that, quote, "The judicial branch is not immune", end quote, from the widespread problem of sexual harassment and assault and has taken steps to address this issue.

Now Kavanaugh's accuser has chose to no longer remain anonymous. The FBI said last week that it was made aware of the allegation on September 12 and included the material "as part of Judge Kavanaugh's file, as per the standard process". Feinstein declined to comment beyond the statement. The Post reviewed her therapist's notes from the time, and they describe her attacker as someone "from an elitist boys' school" who is now among "highly respected and high-ranking members of society in Washington". She said she just wanted to send her allegation to her member of Congress and sit back. The Senate Judiciary Committee has set its vote on his nomination for this coming Thursday. Feinstein has had the letter since July and did not discuss the matter with fellow Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which oversees Supreme Court nominations.

He told The New Yorker: 'I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. President Donald Trump nominated him in July to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the U.S. Supreme Court.

The woman sent the letter about the allegation to Democratic Congresswoman Anna Eshoo of Palo Alto, and the letter was sent to the office of Sen.

The Senate's female Republican senators, nearly all of whom McConnell and Trump must keep in the "yes" column, could decide whether the allegations are tested.

"But at this point, it's an anonymous letter, you're not going to be able to really test it unless somebody comes forward with more information", Jones said on CNN's "State of the Union".

Ford said she believes the incident is responsible for her anxiety and the post-traumatic stress disorder.
