Brett Kavanaugh's Accuser: What We Know About Christine Blasey Ford

Kavanaugh accuser said to be willing to testify before US Senate committee

Donald Trump will attack the California professor now accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault rather than reconsider the Kavanuagh nomination, sources tell 'Politico'.

For the last few days, the political world was shaken by Ford's claim that Kavanaugh got drunk and tried to rape her while they were both in high school.

Kavanaugh's accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, made her name and her accusations public in an interview with The Washington Post Sunday. "He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing".

In an updated statement, Kavanaugh said at the White House on Monday, "This is a completely false allegation". In the letter, Ford said she had received medical treatment after the assault, adding that "it is upsetting to discuss sexual assault and its repercussions, yet I felt guilty and compelled as a citizens about the idea of not saying anything".

Demand Justice, one of the leading anti-Kavanaugh groups on the left, told ABC News Monday that they are planning a $700,000 television and digital advertising blitz in four states, Alaska, Colorado, Maine and Nevada, that will focus on Dr. Ford's allegations.

"This woman should not be insulted and she should not be ignored", Conway told Fox News. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of SC, said they wanted to hear more from Ford.

She also denied that Dr Ford, a Democrat, is politically motivated. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations. "For the entire time we have known Brett Kavanaugh, he has behaved honorably and treated women with respect", they wrote.

Mr Kavanaugh's nomination has sharply divided an already closely split Senate, with most Democrats opposing him and most Republicans supporting him. Dianne Feinstein orchestrated the leak and subsequent release of Ford's letter, not merely to sink Kavanaugh and level accusations in a way that would make it hard for the judge to defend himself, but also to try and delay Republican efforts to confirm any nominee until after the midterms.

Ford's lawyer, Debra Katz, said that her client was willing to testify before the committee.

No matter what happens, Democratic strategists say the latest allegations against Kavanaugh will serve as another boost to female turnout, in an election year where Democratic women were already set to boost their ranks. "I did not do this back in high school or at any time", Kavanaugh said when the allegation first came to light last week. She says the woman considers Kavanaugh's actions "attempted rape".

"They should be examined thoroughly and fairly by the Judiciary Committee without any artificial timeline". Katz said, "I would say no one in their right mind regardless of their motive would want to inject themselves into this process and face the kind of annihilation that she will be subjected to by those who want this nominee to go through".

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the committee's top Democrat, said staff phone calls with Kavanaugh and his accuser are not sufficient.

Democrats are desperate to block Kavanaugh's appointment because they believe he could help overturn Roe vs Wade, the landmark ruling that protects legal access to abortion, as well as protections for racial minorities, unions and the environment. She recalls him being extremely intoxicated and pinning her down on a bed, grinding against her, attempting to take off her clothes, and covering her mouth so she couldn't scream. But the president says Kavanaugh's nomination is "on track". The two both testified publicly before Congress, and Thomas was eventually confirmed in the closest Supreme Court confirmation vote in more than a century.
