Woman comes forward to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct

SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh denies allegations of high school misconduct levied by unnamed woman

The woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct when they were teenagers has come forward to The Washington Post.

Christine Blasey Ford told The Washington Post that she didn't want to be thrust into the spotlight and endure all that goes with that (the disbelief and personal attacks).

Watching Kavanaugh move toward a likely confirmation, she made a decision to end her effort to come forward, according to the New Yorker. She said Kavanaugh pinned her to the bed and groped her, trying to remove her clothing and a one-piece bathing suit underneath.

At one point, she said, [Kavanaugh's friend Mike] Judge jumped on top of them, and she tried unsuccessfully to wriggle free.

Ford said she told no one about the incident until 2012, when she discussed it during a couples therapy session. "I never saw Brett act that way", Judge said to the Weekly Standard, addressing allegations that at the time stemmed from reports citing an unnamed woman. "I did not do this back in high school or at any time", he said.

The now-53-year-old Kavanaugh denies the allegation.

The Telegraph contacted the White House for comment on Ms Ford's claims, but had no response at the time of going to press.

"The questions that we will ask and seek answers to next week are, 'Why sit on it for weeks?' We understand that the person who wrote the letter is not willing to come forward".

Questions swirled on Thursday when Feinstein declined to explain what information she was provided about Kavanaugh that she made a decision to share with authorities. "Sixty-five senators met individually with Judge Kavanaugh during a almost two-month period before the hearing began, yet Feinstein didn't share this with her colleagues ahead of many of those discussions".

In 1991, Anita Hill testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee claiming Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her when she worked with him at the Education Department and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The Senate judiciary committee is due to vote on Kavanaugh's nomination on Thursday, paving the way for a full Senate vote later in the month which would require a simple majority to secure his place on the supreme court bench.

As it stands now, this is simply an attempt to smear a man who had an impeccable reputation in high school. Ford said, adding that she recalled thinking: "I'm not ever telling anyone this". Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Ford's account has also been detailed in a confidential letter that Sen.

Kavanaugh has denied all accusations. Feinstein says she didn't mention it sooner out of concern for the accuser's privacy and because the events were too far in the past.Under pressure from colleagues, however, she turned it over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. In defense, Kavanaugh and Judge have offered only a blanket denial.
