He also told the New York Times that Kavanaugh was a "brilliant student" who loved sports and was not "into anything insane or illegal". "Now I feel like my civic responsibility is outweighing my anguish and terror about retaliation", she stated.

Kavanaugh issued another denial Monday and said he has never done anything like the allegation. According to Kavanaugh and Judge, Ford's story is categorically and unequivocally false. "I did not do this back in high school or at any time", he said when the story first broke.

Kavanaugh was a key part of an independent counsel's team that investigated Democratic President Bill Clinton in the 1990s, including his sexual relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer called for the vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation to be delayed due to Ford's accusation. Ford named two other teenagers who she said were at the party. "Along with another male, Kavanaugh locked the door from the inside and played loud music that the accuser said precluded successful attempts to yell for help". Kavanaugh was on top of me while laughing with REDACTED, who periodically jumped onto Kavanaugh. She said that each person had one beer but that Kavanaugh and Judge had started drinking earlier and were heavily intoxicated.

"It is upsetting to discuss sexual assault and its repercussions, yet I felt guilty and compelled as a citizen about the idea of not saying anything", she writes.

But as the details began to leak, Ford found that her identity was being made public and her story was being called into question.

Katz said that her client is willing to go through with testimony despite the violent and threatening reactions she has already received after she went public on Sunday. "In fact, she was quite reluctant to come forward".

She said that Kavanaugh, while in high school, pinned her down, tried to remove her bathing suit and put his hand over her mouth when she attempted to scream. "I thought he might inadvertently kill me."-Professor Ford about -Kavanaugh assault".

"My biggest fear was, do I look like someone just attacked me?" she said.

The Post said Ford also had contacted the paper through a tip line in early June when it had become clear that Kavanaugh was on the short list for the Supreme Court nomination.

She appears as a co-author for research papers on subjects such as stress among parents of children having a neurogenetic disorder called fragile X syndrome, how gender affects the relationship between childhood mistreatment and depression as an adult, and the prevalence of anxiety disorders among sexual minorities.

Kavanaugh covered her mouth with his hand when she tried to scream, she says. 'He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing'. On Sunday, Christine Blasey Ford stepped forward and said she is now willing to go public with her accusations .

"We also must respect and listen to Dr. Ford, who is now a target of personal attacks because she had the courage to come forward", the Illinois Democrat said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Judge provided an interview Friday to the the Weekly Standard, before Ford's name was known. "I have seen firsthand what happens when such a process is weaponized against an accuser, and no one should have to endure that again". Democrats need to flip at least two Republicans to block Kavanaugh.

That panel has a vote now set for Thursday afternoon on the Kavanaugh nomination. A Republican source tells CNN that the vote is still scheduled to occur.

If Kavanaugh's nomination fails, Trump would get to select a replacement, but that nominee likely would not be confirmed by the Senate before the election.

"I have never done anything like what the accuser describes - to her or to anyone", Kavanaugh said.

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

Republican panel member Jeff Flake has urged the committee to delay its vote until it hears from Ford.

"It raises a lot of questions about Democrats' tactics and motives", said Taylor Foy, the spokesman for Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) in late July through her Congresswoman Anna Eshoo's office, with the understanding that her story would remain confidential.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley plans to speak with Kavanaugh and Ford before the committee's scheduled vote, according to a panel spokesman.
