Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh, Supreme Court nominee, stands accused of a crime, and it will take a public outcry to ensure these allegations are investigated before the Senate votes on his confirmation.
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford accuses Kavanaugh of pinning her to a bed and drunkenly assaulting her while another boy, Mark Judge, watched. The event took place when they were in high school. She spoke publicly about the encounter to The Washington Post.
We, the undersigned, demand that the U.S. Senate delay the vote to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh until its members have conducted a proper investigation into these allegations.
Blasey described Judge Kavanaugh attempting to remove her clothes and covering her mouth when she tried to scream. “I thought he might inadvertently kill me,” Blasey said in the interview.
Early in the summer, when it became clear that Kavanaugh would be included on Trump's short list of candidates that might be nominated for the Supreme Court, Blasey sent a letter to her congresswoman, Anna G. Eshoo, and reached out to The Washington Post tip line. Later in July, she sent a letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein.
For several weeks, Blasey chose not to speak publicly in order to protect her family and her own privacy. Knowing she would be attacked, she completed and passed a lie detector test, administered by an ex-FBI agent, and gave the results to The Washington Post.
Supreme Court Justices are appointed for life. If the vote to confirm Kavanaugh goes ahead without an investigation, these allegations could hang over the court for more than 40 years.
Now that the Senate Judiciary Committee has voted to move Kavanaugh’s nomination to the floor, we need to pressure our senators to call for an FBI investigation. Sign now to call for a formal investigation into Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations against Kavanaugh.
