Kavanaugh sexual assault accuser reveals identity and details allegations

Kavanaugh sexual assault accuser reveals identity and details allegations”

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), who chairs the Judiciary Committee, is reportedly trying to set up a phone call with the committee members, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his sexual assault accuser.

"I thought he might inadvertently kill me", she told the paper.

Ford, now 51 and a clinical psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California, says she was able to get away after Kavanaugh's friend jumped on top of them and everyone tumbled. "I think the Senate is headed toward a reasonable approach, allowing this woman to be heard in sworn testimony, allowing Judge Kavanaugh to be heard in sworn testimony", Conway said.

On Thursday California Democratic Sen.

"Katz said Ford originally had "a great deal of ambivalence" about coming forward and had chose to keep her allegations confidential, but "that decision was essentially taken away from her as those allegations were leaked" and members of the press began approaching her. Katz said Ford stood by her story, and that now she had come forward, they expected serious opposition".

Kavanaugh's confirmation vote before the committee is scheduled for Thursday at this point.

"It raises a lot of questions about Democrats' tactics and motives to bring this to the rest of the committee's attention only now rather than during these many steps along the way", Grassley's statement reads. There is a way back to the better times of which Ginsburg spoke, though it will require great courage and character - to confirm the highly qualified Kavanaugh with a bipartisan vote. Kavanaugh would also probably be asked to appear before senators.

Mr Kavanaugh issued his denial last week.

In considering their options Sunday, Republicans largely settled on the view that Ford's story alone was not enough to delay Kavanaugh's confirmation. Democrats need to flip at least two Republicans to block Kavanaugh.

Ford says she didn't reveal what happened until 20-12 during couples therapy with her husband. "Every Democrat and every Republican voted for him", she said. Both are under enormous pressure from outside groups who want them to oppose Kavanaugh on grounds that as a justice he could vote to undercut the Roe v. Wade ruling legalizing abortion in the U.S.

"Brett Kavanaugh attempted rape NOonKAVANAUGH", Rosie O'Donnell tweeted.

She said if anyone was going to tell her story, she wanted to be the one to tell it. The test concluded she was being truthful when she said a statement summarizing her allegations was accurate. Kavanaugh would have been 17 at the end of his junior year at Georgetown Prep. 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. Ford said there were four boys at the party but only two in the room.

Ford is a registered Democrat with a record of contributing to Democratic politicians.

"It has always been Mrs. Ford's decision whether to come forward publicly", the senator said.

Katz attacked Paula Jones repeatedly in 1998 when she claimed Bill Clinton had sexually harassed her when he was the governor of Arkansas. Clinton eventually settled the lawsuit with Jones for $850,000. On the advice of Katz, who believed Ford would be attacked as a liar if she came forward, Ford took a polygraph test administered by a former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent in early August.
