"Maybe she did not understand what she should do with confidential information, and while I'm not absolutely criticizing her on that, if I'd had that information, I think that I would have treated it differently", Waters said. In her interview with The Post, Ford offered further detail, saying that one summer in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh and a friend, both "stumbling drunk", led her into a bedroom at a home in Montgomery County, Maryland, where teenagers had gathered. She said Kavanaugh pinned her to the bed and groped her, trying to remove her clothing and a one-piece bathing suit underneath.
"We are women who have known Brett Kavanaugh for more than 35 years and knew him while he attended high school between 1979 and 1983", wrote the women, who said a lot of them had attended all-girl high schools in the area.
Ford says she didn't reveal what happened until 2012 during couples therapy with her husband.
"From the outset, I have believed these allegations were extremely serious and bear heavily on Judge Kavanaugh's character", Feinstein said.

She had no problem compartmentalizing Williams' presence during the match itself, as evidenced by her stunning 6-2, 6-4 win. Ramos didn't argue and the score was now 1-1 in the second set, with Osaka starting the next game 15-0 up.
Kavanaugh has denied the allegations.
The woman sent the letter about the allegation to Democratic Congresswoman Anna Eshoo of Palo Alto, and the letter was sent to the office of Sen. There would simply not be time for Trump to pick another nominee, and the Judiciary Committee to vet that person and hold another week-long confirmation hearing before any floor vote to confirm the replacement pick before Election Day.
The allegation came just one week before the Senate Judiciary Committee is to vote on his nomination.
"Throughout 25 years of public service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has thoroughly and repeatedly vetted Judge Kavanaugh, dating back to 1993, for some of the most highly sensitive roles".
