Last Monday, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford came forward with allegations that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her during a high school party in the early 1980’s. Records also came forth on Wednesday showing that she passed a polygraph test regarding those accusations.
Since Ford, two additional victims- Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick – have come forward with allegations against Judge Kavanaugh. However, on Thursday, it was confirmed that the Senate is now investigating a fourth allegation that Kavanaugh physically assaulted a woman in a bar.
According to NBC News:
‘Republican Senate investigators asked Kavanaugh about the new complaint, NBC News has learned, during a phone call on Tuesday between Kavanaugh and committee staff. Sources told NBC News that Kavanaugh denied the allegation in the letter during the call and a spokesman for the committee declined to comment.’
The sender of the complaint, writes about a complaint that her daughter alleges took place in 1998, saying:
‘When they left the bar (under the influence of alcohol) they were all shocked when Brett Kavanaugh, shoved her friend up against the wall very aggressively and sexually.‘There were at least four witnesses including my daughter.’
‘In a letter to the committee, Ford says that she thought she would be killed and that he had attempted to rape her. She has also said that Mark Judge was a witness and participant in the alleged assault. Kavanaugh has said it is possible he may have met her but he denied the accusation.’
‘There are certain areas that I’ve been interested in. He could be perjuring himself because of his response to my question about whether he had ever (engaged in sexual misconduct) as an adult. He could have perjured himself.’
