Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, comes forward and also blames Mark Judge

The woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of forcing himself on her when they were in high school has come forward, just days ahead of the confirmation vote to put Kavanaugh on the high court.

Christine Blasey Ford, a professor at Palo Alto University in California, spoke to the Washington Post in an article published on Sunday. She revealed herself to be the author of a letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) that was eventually sent to the FBI about the alleged incident.

The FBI has found no validity in the accusations and planned no investigation.

Ford had been in contact with the Post for weeks but had declined to go public with her allegations, fearing retaliation and public attacks.

“These are all the ills that I was trying to avoid,” Ford told the Post. “Now I feel like my civic responsibility is outweighing my anguish and my terror about retaliation.”

The Intercept reported on Wednesday that Sen. Feinstein had received a letter from a California constituent about an incident between a woman and Kavanaugh while they were in high school but had not shared the document with other Democrats.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegations against him “categorically and unequivocally,” saying he “did not do this back in high school or at any time.”

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) had his office publish a letter signed by 65 women Kavanaugh knew in high school saying he “treated women with respect.”

Ford alleges that sometime during the early 1980s, she was at a party when Kavanaugh and one of his friends and classmates at Georgetown Preparatory School, Mark Judge, were drunk and corralled her into a bedroom. Per the Post’s account:

While his friend watched, she said, Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed on her back and groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it. When she tried to scream, she said, he put his hand over her mouth.

“I thought he might inadvertently kill me,” said Ford, now a 51-year-old research psychologist in northern California. “He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing.”

Ford said she was able to escape when Kavanaugh’s friend and classmate at Georgetown Preparatory School, Mark Judge, jumped on top of them, sending all three tumbling. She said she ran from the room, briefly locked herself in a bathroom and then fled the house.

    THE PLOT THICKENS…

    According to court documents, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s Mother presided over a foreclosure case involving the parents of the woman who has accused him of sexual assault.
    Judge Martha Kavanaugh, who sat on the Montgomery County Circuit Court bench, issued the order against Ralph and Paula Blasey in 1996, the parents of sexual assault accuser Christine Blasey Ford. Conservative activist Richard Armande Mills tweeted screenshots from the state of Maryland case search site giving details from the case.

    This information was first discovered and discussed with Blasey-Ford’s behavioral psychologist during a 2012 treatment session. At the time of the subject treatment therapy, Blasey-Ford could NOT recall the date, the year, the month, the location of the alleged assault, and maybe most importantly, Blasey-Ford had no recollection of the name (or names) of her alleged abusers.

    If Blasey-Ford’s story is less than true and accurate?… then she may be deserving of the terror or retaliation she fears?!

    What is wrong with whoever you are who run this rag. You should NOT be including the child’s image in that photo. You could easily have cropped the child’s face out. Jerks.

  9. Pablo says:

    Let’s be honest here. Clarence Thomas would never had been confirmed if he was white. He got a pass on his incompetence and behavior. Kavanaugh doesn’t have his skin color to shield him and he will go down quickly even if he’s competent. While things are changing with the me to movement it hasn’t changed enough that Thomas would be held accountable today by the right wing fringe.

    TOTALLY DISGUSTING PLOY BY THE DEMOCRATS TO SMEAR A GOOD MANS NAME AND CHARACTER…..IT IS THESE TYPE OF THINGS THE DEMOCRATS ARE KNOWN FOR….LAST DITCH PERSONAL ATTACKS. SO SAD SHE HAS PUT HER FAMILY THROUGH THIS POLITICAL SMEAR TACTIC…

    • Tom says:

      I’m so glad you were in the room to know what happened. Oh, wait, you weren’t. How about we wait and see how this plays out before making judgments either way?

    • Wesada says:

      Tom is correct. You were not there and your slander of this woman is simply your opinion. It’s amazing how you can “smear” a good woman’s character without a clue as to what really happened. Tom was kind to you. I could have been worse!

    • ACdevil says:

      Glenda, You have either been living in a bubble or inside a closet, This how the political game is played, I am sure you have herd before the Republicans do this before, or you really inside that bubble. Republicans do this more often than Democrats. Bottom line is, is this Judge appointee right to the interest of the republic or to the personal interest of Trump. The main idea and purpose of this judge appointment is to exonerate Trump from the criminal investigation for which more likely is guilty.

      • ” I am sure you have herd before the Republicans do this before, or you really inside that bubble. Republicans do this more often than Democrats. ”

        You need to back this up. That is a bold statement with little to no evidence.

        Clarence Thomas – 1991

        Bork – 1980s

        Where is the GOP doing this to the SCOTUS picks?

        Moreover, your presumptions of Kavanaugh being a pick to give Trump cover are also rooted in conspiracy theory. First, Trump would have to be charged and then second, I’m presuming here, you feel Kavanaugh’s ties to Ken Starr means he’s a biased shill set to pardon Trump – at least be honest about that.
