Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford testifies before Senate hearing

Posted September 28, 2018

The lawyer for Stormy Daniels came forward with a new allegation on Wednesday, tweeting a formal declaration from a woman who is accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of more sexual misconduct in the 1980s, specifically saying he was present during a "gang rape" where she was a victim.

A representative at GoFundMe tells MONEY the Ford family "has been added as the beneficiary to both campaigns and the funds are being transferred directly to them".

"The last thing I want to do is take away from the pain a woman has", Jacobs said. You sowed the wind.

She plans to tell the committee that, one night in the summer of 1982, an inebriated Kavanaugh forced her down on a bed, "groped me and tried to take off my clothes", then clamped his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream before she was able to escape.

The Senate hearing could determine whether Mr Kavanaugh he will be confirmed to the lifetime job after a pitched political battle. She witnessed both of them "drink excessively and "engage in highly inappropriate conduct".

She wrote that she was incapacitated, perhaps drugged with Quaaludes, and was "unable to fight off the boys raping me".

"Ford's testimony puts all the pressure on Kavanaugh", they said.

In recent days, students have demonstrated on campus, papering walls with posters of support for Ford and holding a sit-in protest in the law school hallway over the nomination and the handling of Ford's allegations. He will testify under oath later today.

Avenatti tweeted four pages of a declaration from Julie Swetnick of Washington, D.C., who said she holds four active clearances with the federal government, and who asked for privacy and no followup media interviews.

President Trump: Sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh 'totally political'
Republican leaders and Trump have rejected Democratic demands for the FBI to investigate the allegations. It is unheard of for a Supreme Court nominee to give interviews during the confirmation process.

Kavanaugh denies both of those allegations. The hearing was a rollercoaster of emotion, with Democrats taking every opportunity to praise Ford's courage in coming forward, while Mitchell delivered the tougher questioning, challenging her on a number of issues, including the circumstances surrounding her polygraph test and her fear of flying. She laughed nervously when Senator Grassley, the Republican chair of the committee, replied that no one made his coffee right.

As a Supreme Court nominee, Kavanaugh personifies the prestige of Yale, an institution in which numerous law students have invested their own career aspirations and identity.

The room erupted in applause when Senator Dick Durbin, a Democrat, made a reference to the almost 50 Yale Law professors who have called for the Federal Bureau of Investigation to look into Ford's allegation. "And no, I've never done anything like that".

Kavanaugh told the senators, his voice raised: "I have never done this to her or to anyone". Democrats are likely to grill Kavanaugh on all of their allegations and the corroborations from some of their friends and classmates, as well as his drinking habits in high school and college. This first allegation was held in secret for weeks by a Democratic member of this committee and by staff.
