Brett Kavanaugh Accuser Opens Up About the Alleged Sexual Assault

President Donald Trump's pick for the US Supreme Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh faces a dramatic opening day to his Senate hearing interrupted by opposition Democrats demanding a delay over withheld documents

Ford, now a 51-year-old research psychologist in California, told the Washington Post that in July she sent a letter to Democratic Representative Anna Eshoo about the incident but requested confidentiality at the time.

The Post reports Ford first contacted the paper in early July, several weeks before she wrote a confidential letter to Sen. The notes also say four boys attacked her - but Ford insists this was the therapist's mistake.

In the interview, Ford said that the lasting trauma from the attack had "derailed me substantially for four or five years", and had caused anxiety for years after that.

In a statement released to U.S. media, Kavanaugh rejected the woman's claim, made in a letter to the Democrats vetting his nomination, that he tried to force himself on her during a party.

But Kavanaugh and Judge have kind of locked themselves into the defense that she's categorically lying.

Ford's husband, Russell Ford, also told the newspaper that his wife described during therapy being trapped in a room with two drunken boys and that one of them had pinned her to a bed, molested her and tried to prevent from screaming.

Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the allegation, saying in a statement: "I did not do this back in high school or at any time". Kavanaugh was born in 1965, so he would have been a teenager at the time. "It's just absolutely nuts. I have seen firsthand what happens when such a process is weaponized against an accuser, and no one should have to endure that again".

That's their story now.

"Upon receipt of the information on the night of September 12, we included it as part of Judge Kavanaugh's background file, as per the standard process". "That was true when he was in high school, and it has remained true to this day", they said.

"Sexual assault, in high school, from an anonymous source?"

"Now, they're coming at him with this accusation from someone anonymous that he was at a party, which I find hard to believe", Maher quipped.

"No way, not even a hint of it", the lawyer said according to the site.

But that's not what they said.

Feinstein told Kavanaugh on September 5, "I'm sorry for the circumstances, but we'll get through it".

If true, Ford is not describing a "boyish prank". A Democratic aide and another person familiar with the letter confirmed Friday to The Associated Press that the allegation is sexual in nature.

"Throughout 25 years of public service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has thoroughly and repeatedly vetted Judge Kavanaugh, dating back to 1993, for some of the most highly sensitive roles".

When they change their story, to SUDDENLY RECALL more about the incident, yet still try to paint Ford as untruthful, remember where they started, remember that delta. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), specifically asked Kavanaugh about whether he had ever engaged in sexual misconduct ― although she limited her question to when he was a "legal adult", which would not have applied to the situation with Ford.
