Christine Blasey Ford Sexual assault claim against Brett Kavanaugh
In July 2018, after Judge Brett Kavanaugh was reported to be on the shortlist to become an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, Ford sent a confidential letter to her House Representative Anna Eshoo, who forwarded it to Senator Dianne Feinstein, alleging Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her when both were in high school. In August she took a lie detector test with a former FBI agent, who concluded she was truthful. The FBI included a redacted version of her letter in the background material provided to the White House and Senate for Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination.
On September 16, 2018, after the accusations were made public and reporters started to track down her identity, Ford went public. According to her, the sexual assault took place in the summer of 1982 when she was 15, and he was 17. She told The Washington Post that, with another boy watching, Kavanaugh, intoxicated, held her down on a bed with his body, covering her mouth when she tried to scream and trying to pull her clothes off; she recounted escaping when the second boy jumped on them both, and they all fell. To corroborate her account, Ford provided The Post with session notes from her therapist written in 2012. The notes do not name Kavanaugh but record her claim of being attacked by students “from an elitist boys’ school” who went on to become “highly respected and high-ranking members of society in Washington.” Ford’s husband recalled that she had used Kavanaugh’s last name in her 2012 description of the incident.
Ford alleges that the incident occurred when Kavanaugh and a friend brought her up to a bedroom while they were all at a party. She says that he pinned her to the bed and groped her while trying to take her clothes off, and when she tried to yell he put a hand over her mouth.
Ford said to The Washington Post, “I thought he might inadvertently kill me. He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing.”
Ford managed to escape when Kavanaugh’s friend, Mark Judge, jumped on top of them. She locked herself in a bathroom and then ran out of the house.
She said of the event to The Washington Post, “My biggest fear was, do I look like someone just attacked me? [I thought], I’m not ever telling anyone this. This is nothing, it didn’t happen, and he didn’t rape me.”
