Kavanaugh Accuser Comes Forward: ‘I Thought He Might Inadvertently Kill Me’


The woman who wrote the letter alleging that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school came forward on Sunday, detailing the incident to The Washington Post and providing contemporaneous notes and the results of a polygraph test in an effort to back her claims.

“I thought he might inadvertently kill me,” 51-year-old Christine Blasey Ford said in describing an alleged encounter she laid out in letter to Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) in late July. The contents of the letter had remained secret until Sunday.

Ford alleges that Kavanaugh and a friend were “stumbling drunk” inside a Maryland home when the pair took her into a bedroom. Ford said Kavanaugh pinned her down and began groping her and, as the Post describes it, “grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it.” Kavanaugh put his hand over her mouth when she screamed, Ford says.
