Sunday, the woman accusing Trump’s SCOTUS pick (Brett Kavanaugh) of sexually assaulting her in high school came forward and is now speaking out publicly, sparking even more controversy for our so-called “president” and his nominee.

Christine Blasey Ford, who is now a professor at Palo Alto University in California, said she feared for her life during Kavanaugh’s attack.

‘I thought he might inadvertently kill me. He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing.’

According to the Daily News:

‘Ford, now 51, said she decided to break her silence after a version of her story went public without her consent. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations, which broke last week after a confidential letter describing the attack was sent to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), who referred the matter to the FBI.’

After Ford’s interview with the Washington Post GOP Senator Jeff Flake was quick to oppose a vote for Kavanaugh, saying that it was imperative that the committee hear testimony from Professor Ford and said:

‘If they push forward without any attempt with hearing what she’s had to say, I’m not comfortable voting yes. We need to hear from her. And I don’t think I’m alone in this.’

And he’s right. He’s definitely not alone in this, as fellow GOP Senator Bob Corker has also spoken out against a quick vote, putting Kavanaugh’s confirmation in jeopardy. When asked if he thought the committee vote should be delayed, Corker said:

‘I think that would be best for all involved, including the nominee. If she does want to be heard, she should do so promptly.’

In addition to Senators Flake and Corker, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) also stated that though he’s skeptical of the timing of the accusations, he too believes that Professor Ford should be heard out before Kavanaugh is confirmed. Graham said:

‘If [Christine Blasey] Ford wishes to provide information to the committee, I would gladly listen to what she has to say and compare that against all other information we have received about Judge Kavanaugh.’

Senator Graham added:

‘If the committee is to hear from Ms. Ford, it should be done immediately so the process can continue as scheduled.’

As more and more Senators come forward in support of hearing what Professor Ford has to say, the more it’s looking like Trump and his SCOTUS pick are not going to like the outcome of this confirmation vote. At this point, we can only hope that the voting committee will somehow grow a conscience and keep Brett Kavanaugh out of the Supreme Court.
