Anita Hill Speaks Out On Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Brett Kavanaugh


Ford said that Kavanaugh covered her mouth his his hand when she attempted to scream.

"I thought he might inadvertently kill me", said Ford, now a 51-year-old research psychologist in northern California.

Christine Ford, a California-based professor, revealed her identity in a Washington Post report on Sunday, following her letter to Sen. In her letter, she said she wanted her allegation to be kept confidential, but she said she has made a decision to finally speak publicly amid heightened media scrutiny, diminishing privacy, and falsehoods about her story.

Feinstein called on the FBI to investigate Ford's story "before the Senate moves forward on this nominee".

During the encounter, Ford alleges that Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed on her back and groped her over her clothes while grinding his body against hers, according to the Post.

The White House said Monday that the Senate Judiciary Committee is leaning toward inviting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's accuser to testify before the panel, as the woman's attorney said she would be willing to appear. Sheldon Whitehouse called for "a pause, at a minimum", on Kavanaugh's nomination and time for the Federal Bureau of Investigation "to take proper witness statements".

"Throughout his confirmation process, Judge Kavanaugh has had 65 meetings with senators-including with Senator Feinstein-sat through over 30 hours of testimony, addressed over 2,000 questions in a public setting and additional questions in a confidential session". Democrats have called for the vote to be delayed and two Republicans on the panel - Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of SC - have said Ford's testimony should be heard.

While Senate Democrats are again calling on Kavanaugh's vote to be delayed, the White House is also standing behind Kavanaugh, whom President Donald Trump tapped in July to replace the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

"She's not taking a position on that", Katz said. "Every Democrat and every Republican voted for him", she said.

A vote that would send Kavanaugh's nomination to the wider Senate is scheduled for Thursday. The White House countered that Feinstein was waging an "11th hour attempt to delay [Kavanaugh's] confirmation". Ford says four boys were at the party, but only two boys were in the room at the time. The allegations, which Kavanaugh vehemently denies, refer to when he was a student at Georgetown Preparatory School in North Bethesda, Maryland, in the 1980s. Judge denied the allegations in an interview with The Weekly Standard, a conservative publication, after The New Yorker detailed them on Friday.

The Post interview marks the first time that Ford has allowed her name to be disclosed since her accusations against Kavanaugh became public last week.

"For me, we can't vote until we hear more", Flake told the Washington Post.

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa is working to set up bipartisan staff conversations with Kavanaugh and Ford before Thursday's committee vote on the nomination, Grassley spokesman Taylor Foy said in an e-mail Sunday evening.

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". She said she believed the attack occurred in 1982.
