Kavanaugh Releases Statement After Accuser Identifies Herself. He Isn’t Backing Down.
Kavanaugh came out with verbal guns blazing Monday.
In the high noon of his Supreme Court nomination, Brett Kavanaugh is standing tall and asking for a showdown.
On Monday, Kavanaugh denied allegations of inappropriate contact with a girl during his high school days and said he will make his case to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Christine Blasey Ford, now a professor at Palo Alto University in California, has said that Kavanaugh and a friend trapped her in a bedroom during a a high school party more than 35 years ago. Kavanaugh, who she said was drunk, got on top of her and tried to take off her clothes, she told The Washington Post.
“This is a completely false allegation,” Kavanaugh said in a statement, according to ABC. “I have never done anything like what the accuser describes — to her or to anyone.
“Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday. I am willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the Committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity,” Kavanaugh’s statement said.
