WATCH Brett Kavanaugh's accuser comes forward 0 Shares Email A California psychology professor who claims Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh attempted to sexually assault her when they were in high school identified herself in a story published Sunday in the Washington Post, saying, "I thought he might inadvertently kill me.
Dianne Feinstein, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, was leaked, prompting Kavanaugh to issue a blanket denial of the allegations. Ford, a psychology professor at Palo Alto University who teaches in consortium with Stanford University, said she was also spurred to speak out due to inaccuracies about her story that she has heard repeated, according to the report.
Ford's letter to Feinstein was first reported on Friday by the New Yorker magazinebut the article did not reveal her identity. Ford said the incident occurred in the s when the year-old Kavanaugh was a student at Georgetown Preparatory School in North Bethesda, Maryland, and she was a year-old sophomore at Holton-Arms School, an all-girls school in Bethesda, Maryland.
She told the Post she believes the incident occurred in when Kavanaugh would have been a year-old junior at Georgetown Prep. Ford said she was at a teen house party in Montgomery County, Maryland, when Kavanaugh and one of his male classmates -- both "stumbling drunk" -- cornered her in a bedroom and Kavanaugh pinned her on her back on a bed, the paper reported.
She said Kavanaugh's friend watched as Kavanaugh groped her over her clothes and attempted to remove her clothes and the one-piece bathing suit she was wearing underneath, according to the story.
Ford told the Post that when she tried to scream, Kavanaugh put his hand over her mouth.

She said she managed to escape when Kavanaugh's friend, whom she identified as conservative writer Mark Judge, jumped on top of them on the bed and sent all three of them tumbling, according to the Post.
She told the paper she ran to a bathroom and locked herself inside before fleeing the house. When the allegations first surfaced last week, Kavanaugh issued a statement, saying, "I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time.
Judge also denied the incident ever occurred. ABC News could not immediately reach Ford to comment on the allegations. President Donald Trump announced on July 9 that he was nominating Kavanaugh to fill the seat on the high court vacated by retiring justice Anthony Kennedy.
Kavanaugh's Senate Confirmation hearing began on Sept. A vote by the Senate on whether to confirm Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court has yet to be scheduled. A simple majority of 51 votes is all that is needed to confirm Kavanaugh. Vice President Mike Pence can cast a tie-breaking vote. Ford said she never told anyone about being allegedly attacked by Kavanaugh until when she and her husband, Russell Ford, sought couples therapy, the Post reported.
She said in the story that she struggled, both academically and socially, and for a long time failed to have healthy relationships with men. Ford also shared with the newspaper notes a therapist took during the couples therapy she and her husband underwent. The therapist's notes, according to the Post, say that Ford reported she was attacked by students of an elite boys school who went on to become "highly respected and high-ranking members of society in Washington.
Brett Kavanaugh says a 'good judge' must be an 'umpire' in first day of confirmation hearing "My biggest fear was, do I look like someone just attacked me? She said that at the time, she recalled thinking, "I'm not ever telling anyone this.
