Brett Kavanaugh Accuser Will Testify Before Congress On Thursday
Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Donald Trump’s supreme court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were teenagers will testify before Congress on Thursday.
A statement was issued on Sunday by lawyers for the professor at Palo Alto University, who claims Kavanaugh assaulted her at a party in the early 1980s, said an open hearing would take place at 10 am on Thursday.
Kavanaugh, who has strongly denied the allegations, is also expected to appear.
“Despite actual threats to her safety and her life, Dr Ford believes it is important for senators to hear directly from her about the sexual assault committed against her,” the statement said.
Ford’s lawyers have also said that numerous other witnesses to the alleged sexual assault would not be called during the Congress meeting. This included Mark Judge, a high school friend of Kavanaugh who was present in the room at the high school party where the raper is said to have occurred.
