The first of three woman to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct has said the assault “drastically altered” her life.
Prof Christine Blasey Ford’s written testimony describes how the alleged incident between her and the judge has had a “lasting impact” on her.
Prof Ford and Judge Kavanaugh are due to testify before a Senate panel about her allegations on Thursday.
Judge Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied the allegations against him.
“Brett’s assault on me drastically altered my life. For a very long time, I was too afraid and ashamed to tell anyone the details,” she wrote in testimony provided to the Senate Judiciary Committee ahead of tomorrow’s hearing.
“I tried to convince myself that because Brett did not rape me, I should be able to move on and just pretend that it had never happened.”
