When the confirmation hearings began for Brett Kavanaugh, Democrats tried to do everything they could to stop the process. Now, before the vote an sexual assault allegation with mysterious timing pops up.
Christine Blasey Ford spoke to The Washington Post about being sexually assaulted by Kavanaugh in the early 1980’s. She said, “”groped her over her clothes, grinding his body against hers and clumsily attempting to pull off her one-piece bathing suit and the clothing she wore over it.”
Kavanaugh denies all the allegations and he has gone through multiple FBI background checks they didn’t raise any red flags.
The timing of the story has to be questioned. After all, this alleged event happened over 35-years ago and Ford is just coming out now, days before the vote on Kavanaugh.
Taylor Foy, Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley’s spokesman, said, “It raises a lot of questions about Democrats’ tactics and motives to bring this to the rest of the committee’s attention only now rather than during these many steps along the way.”
Kelly Anne Conway spoke out about the accusations as well.

The Senate needs to clear this up quickly. Debra Katz, Ford’s attorney, said that her client is willing to testify before Congress.
