Kavanaugh Accuser Willing To Testify. Kavanaugh: I'm Willing To Testify, Too

Kavanaugh Accuser Willing To Testify. Kavanaugh: I'm Willing To Testify, Too

On Sunday, Christine Blasey Ford, a professor in California, came forward as the woman behind the letter accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault at age 17.

"I thought he might inadvertently kill me", Ford told the Washington Post.

Ford told the Post that Kavanaugh "was trying to attack me and remove my clothing" at a teenagers' party one summer in the early 1980s.

"I know that in the coming days, her story will be scrutinized, and she will be accused of lying", Burgess said.

Kavanaugh says in the statement he "had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself".

After initially guarding her anonymity, Ford "decided to take control of this and tell this in her own voice" after the allegations were leaked, her lawyer said. She said managed to escape when Kavanaugh's friend, Mark Judge, jumped on top of them.

New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, the chamber's top Democrat, called for Grassley to postpone the vote "until, at a very minimum, these serious and credible allegations are thoroughly investigated".

NARAL Pro-Choice America, another major organization on the left fighting against Kavanaugh's nomination, released two new online ads Monday targeting Heller and Maine Sen.

A potential "no" vote from Flake would complicate the judge's prospects.

Ford made a decision to go public after reporters began contacting her last week.

Democrats immediately called for a delay in a key committee vote set for this week and at least one Republican panel member said he was willing to hear from the woman, but that the confirmation process must not be derailed.

The committee's chairman, Iowa Sen. Ford does not remember the date or location of the party on question, however, and says that she first spoke about it in couples' therapy with her husband in 2012.

Feinstein issued a statement on Sunday afternoon in support of Ford and calling for the FBI to investigate the matter before the Senate advances Kavanaugh's nomination.

Tennessee's Bob Corker also said the vote should be delayed until Mrs Ford is heard, while Lisa Murkowski told CNN a delay was something "they might have to consider".

Those looking to how the public received Hill's accusations against Thomas in hopes that Kavanaugh will still prevail may see a good sign in that the percentage of Americans supporting his nomination did not drop after Hill's allegations and testimony.

The committee is due to vote on Thursday on whether his nomination should go forward to a full vote in the Senate. Therefore, if Conway is firmly on the side of Kavanaugh being trustworthy - a tough sell, given he has been repeatedly accused of perjuring himself in Senate hearings - it is hard to argue she's willing to really listen to Ford's side of the story.

The note has boxes to check for "yes" or "no" and seems to compare Mr Kavanaugh's accuser to a school yard crush.

Kavanaugh has "categorically and unequivocally" denied the allegation, and continued to do so following publication of Ford's detailed account of the incident. He told the Weekly Standard on Sunday that he has "no recollection" of it.

The Judicial Crisis Network, a conservative group that backs Trump's judicial picks, plans to launch a $1.5 million ad campaign backing Kavanaugh, a spokeswoman said.

"Unfortunately, committee Republicans have only known this person's identity from news reports for less than 24 hours and known about her allegations for less than a week", Grassley said.

"This is about turnout", Mary Anne Marsh, a Democratic strategist from MA, said in a phone interview with Mic of the allegations' impact on the November vote.
