Third accuser says Kavanaugh had role in sexual assaults

Christine Blasey Ford says she is certain she did not mistakenly identify Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as her attacker at a party when they were both in high school more than 30 years ago.

On the topic of why she has chosen to come forward, she will say in her statement, which can be read here.

As Ford sat quietly at a table, Grassley argued that the allegations should not have surfaced toward the end of the confirmation process, especially after she had sent a confidential letter.

He has denied the allegations by Ford and two other women who have also made accusations against him since the nomination was announced.

"I don't want to be in a position where people say, "No, thanks. This is a shameful way to treat our witness, who insisted on confidentiality, and Judge Kavanaugh, who has had to address these allegations in the midst of a media circus".

"Sen. Feinstein, D-Ca, just told me "I have no way of knowing" if Dr. Ford is actually going to show up to Kavanaugh hearing Thursday - if outside counsel is asking the questions", Fox News Correspondent Peter Doocy tweeted Tuesday afternoon.

Trump said he would watch Thursday's potentially explosive Senate hearing and that he could still change his mind about his nominee once he hears what Ford has to say.

"When I got to the small gathering, people were drinking beer in a small living room on the first floor of the house", said Ford. He has said, "I've never sexually assaulted anyone in high school or otherwise". "My responsibility is to tell the truth", she added, adding that she was "terrified" to testify but that she considered it her "civic duty" to relate the details of the incident. "The questioning round will follow the same format that senators will follow during the round with Ford". Why would two separate men come forward and take responsibility for such behavior?

She also said she witnessed efforts by Mr Kavanaugh and others "to cause girls to become inebriated and disoriented so they could then be "gang-raped" in a side room or a bedroom by a "train" of numerous boys", adding that she remembers boys including Mr Kavanaugh getting in lines to take part in these rapes. She accused Kavanaugh of forcing her onto a bed, attempting to undress her, and groping her in front of one of his friends at a high school party in Maryland in 1982.

The 2018 Democratic nominee for governor, Christine Hallquist, called for an FBI investigation and said Senate Republicans were acting in a partisan way.

Kavanaugh has said he categorically denies ever sexually assaulting anyone. It's a job interview of Brett Kavanaugh, ' she said.

Trump told reporters on Wednesday he believed the accusations against Kavanaugh were false, likening them to the sexual assault allegations made against him by as many as 17 women. Her examiner, Jeremiah Hanafin, concluded that both answers were "not indicative of deception", according to US TODAY.

In another declaration, Rebecca White, a neighbor and friend of more than six years, said Ford revealed the alleged assault against her in 2017.

Two additional women have come forward with accusations against Kavanaugh, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick.

"During my time at the school, girls at Holton-Arms frequently met and became friendly with boys from all-boys schools in the area, including Landon School, Georgetown Prep, Gonzaga High School, country clubs, and other places where kids and their families socialized", said Ford.
