Weeks after Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation — and the sexual assault allegations against him — captured the country’s attention, the Senate Judiciary Committee has released a massive report on those accusations that’s largely flown under the radar in the run-up to the midterms.
But the 414-page document, authored by the Republican majority and released over the weekend, contains a number of key revelations.
Among them: the report summarizes a statement from a man who believes he may have been involved in an encounter with Christine Blasey Ford around the time of her claim of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh. Some of this emerged during the Supreme Court confirmation process, but the report provides more details.
Ford was the key witness against Kavanaugh. In detail, she said Kavanaugh tried to remove her clothing during a high school party, but had trouble because she was wearing a bathing suit underneath them. She said she ran off when Kavanaugh friend Mark Judge jumped on top of them and they fell off the bed. Kavanaugh denied the accusation and, on Oct. 6, the Senate confirmed him to the Supreme Court.
