Embattled SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh, following a 48-hour media frenzy over accusations from a woman who’s accused him of sexually assaulting her at a party more than 35 years ago, has doubled down on his denial that he ever assaulted her – or anyone.
Kavanaugh on Monday responded to the latest round of assault allegations, made by California psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford, claiming that the incident Ford has described simply “never happened.”
"This is a completely false allegation. 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,” Kavanaugh said in a new statement.
“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,” he added.

Ford’s attorney, Debra Katz, has said her client is also willing to testify that she was assaulted by Kavanaugh and his friend, fellow Georgetown Prep alum Mark Judge, at a party back in the early ‘80s after they’d all been drinking, claiming Kavanaugh forced her into a room and tried to rape her before she was finally able to escape. Ford came forward publicly over the weekend after first anonymously penning a letter detailing her allegations and turning it over to California Rep. Anna Eshoo and Sen. Dianne Feinstein back in July.
