ABC News: “A California psychology professor who claims Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault her when they were in high school identified herself in a story published Sunday in the Washington Post, saying, ‘I thought he might inadvertently kill me.’

Christine Blasey Ford, 51, told the newspaper she decided to speak out after the contents of a letter she sent to California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, was leaked, prompting Kavanaugh to issue a blanket denial of the allegations.”

“Ford said she was at a teen house party in Montgomery County, Maryland [in 1982], when Kavanaugh and one of his male classmates — both ‘stumbling drunk’ — cornered her in a bedroom and Kavanaugh pinned her on her back on a bed, the paper reported.

She said Kavanaugh’s friend watched as Kavanaugh groped her over her clothes and attempted to remove her clothes and the one-piece bathing suit she was wearing underneath, according to the story.”

“Ford told the Post that when she tried to scream, Kavanaugh put his hand over her mouth.”

“Ford said she never told anyone about being allegedly attacked by Kavanaugh until 2012 when she and her husband, Russell Ford, sought couples therapy, the Post reported.”

“The therapist’s notes, according to the Post, say that Ford reported she was attacked by students of an elite boys school who went on to become ‘highly respected and high-ranking members of society in Washington.'”

“In a statement on Sunday, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-New York, said Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and an Iowa Republican, should postpone the vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation until Ford’s allegations can be thoroughly investigated.”
