Brett Kavanaugh's accuser comes out of the shadows

Republicans pressing ahead with Kavanaugh nomination despite allegation

From there, she claims she was pushed into a bedroom and on top of a bed, where she said Kavanaugh attacked her, groping her and trying to pull off her clothes and a one-piece bathing suit, all while holding his hand over her mouth so she couldn't scream.

In her Sunday op-ed, Feinstein accuses Kavanaugh of being overly ideological and references the sexual misconduct allegation. The White House on Sunday did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

"I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court". Kavanaugh was born in 1965, so he would have been a teenager at the time.

Speaking on CNN a few hours before the Post published its article, Democratic Sen.

The Senate Judiciary Committee's top Democrat, Sen. They have given no indications the allegation will alter their plans. The nomination process, he said, had become "an intergalactic freakshow". Feinstein declined to comment beyond the statement.

"It raises a lot of questions about Democrats' tactics and motives", said Taylor Foy, the spokesman.

The Senate's female Republican senators, nearly all of whom McConnell and Trump must keep in the "yes" column, could decide whether the allegations are tested.

Senate Republicans on Friday released a letter from 65 women who knew Kavanaugh during his high school years vouching for his character.

Ford's decision to come forward throws Kavanaugh's confirmation into question.

The support of only two Republicans - Susan Collins of ME and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska - was thought to be in question.

The paper said Christine Blasey Ford, a professor in California, reached out to the Post in July as Kavanaugh's name appeared on short lists to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, but she opted not to speak with the Post on the record for weeks. She didn't say anything in the confirmation hearing, she didn't say anything in our confidential session with Judge Kavanaugh when the senators and nominee met privately.

Ford said she didn't tell anyone about the incident until 2012 when she was in couples therapy with her husband.

From Kavanaugh: "I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation", Kavanaugh said in a statement issued by the White House. The woman making the allegation attended a nearby school.

He said she used Kavanaugh's last name and voiced concern that he - then a federal judge - might one day be nominated to the Supreme Court. The notes say four boys were involved, a discrepancy Ford says was an error on the therapist's part. Judge stood across the room and both of the boys were laughing "maniacally", Ford said.

Reporters, Ford said, had begun to make contact with her after the anonymous description emerged. It was originally sent to Rep. Anna Eshoo, who represents California's 14th district, according to several media reports.

Ford told the Post she changed her mind about coming forward after watching portions of her story come out without her permission.
