Brett Kavanaugh, Supreme Court Justice nominee, was accused of sexual assault by psychologist Christine Blaisy Ford over an incident that allegedly happened 36 years ago.

“What I know is the truth, and the truth is I never sexually assaulted anyone,” Kavanaugh said in a Fox News interview.

Ford claims that when she was 15 years old, 17-year-old Kavanaugh and Mark Judge, a friend of Kavanaugh’s, forced themselves onto her and tried to undress her at a summer party. Witnesses at the party testified this did not happen. Their reasoning was the event occurred so long ago, and the accuser did not remember all the details.

Ford’s attorneys have submitted contradictory documents to the Senate Judiciary Committee, including declarations from four people confirming her sexual assault by Kavanaugh. The confirmations submitted are from Ford’s husband and three of Ford’s friends.

On Sept. 23, new allegations against Kavanaugh came out. Attorney Michael Avenatti said he had knowledge that Kavanaugh and Judge targeted women with drugs to “allow a train of men to subsequently rape them.”

Republican party members questioned the validity of the accusations presented. They believed the accusations were seen as a political move by liberals. Democratic leaders claimed that bringing these charges to the table was not politically motivated, but were presented to ensure the validity of the Supreme Court.

Kavanaugh, a graduate of Yale Law School, helped impeach former President Bill Clinton and was also an aide to former President George W. Bush. He is beloved by many conservative groups for his decisions in court and was chosen as a nominee by President Donald Trump.

Ford is currently a professor of research design and clinical philosophy at Palo Alto University, and a research psychologist at Stanford School of Medicine. She grew up in Potomac, Md. which is the town over from where Kavanaugh was raised.

Kavanaugh has since been confirmed as a Supreme Court Justice in a 50-48 Senate vote.
