Woman who accused Trump's Supreme Court pick of sex assault says she'll testify after an FBI probe
A woman who has accused President Donald Trump‘s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, of sexual assault decades ago wants her allegations to be investigated by the FBI before she appears at a U.S. Senate hearing, one of her lawyers said on Tuesday.
Christine Blasey Ford, a university professor in California, has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in 1982 when they were both high school students, allegations Kavanaugh has called “completely false.”
