"I thought he might inadvertently kill me", says Ford, 51, a professor at Palo Alto University in California. "When she tried to scream, she said, he put his hand over her mouth", according to the Post. Waters appeared on MSNBC's "AM Joy" with Joy Reid and said she was not sure what the value of a confidential letter is.
After the Post's article went up, Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee released a statement again questioning the timing of the accusations and why Sen. Remember that Ford seems to have been telling the same story for six years at least, while Kavanaugh and Judge try to get through a weekend on the same page. The most likely outcome is that Republicans would confirm a second probable perpetrator of sexual assault to the high court. Ford said, adding that she recalled thinking: "I'm not ever telling anyone this. That is what we have to change", Hirono said in a statement Sunday. Judge denied the allegations in an interview with The Weekly Standard, a conservative publication, after The New Yorker detailed them on Friday. The allegation was not raised at any time during the judge's confirmation hearings.
On Sunday, Feinstain said the FBI should investigate now that Ford has spoken to the Post.
On Thursday, Feinstein said she had received "information" regarding Kavanaugh and has passed it on to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
In 1991, Anita Hill testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee claiming Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her when she worked with him at the Education Department and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Sixty-five women who knew him then and subsequently have issued a letter saying he has "always treated women with decency and respect". After knowledge of the allegation was made public, Feinstein then only made a cryptic statement about a matter she turned over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which declined to investigate the matter.
Ford said she told no one about the episode until 2012, when she was in couples therapy with her husband. 'Now I feel like my civic responsibility is outweighing my anguish and terror about retaliation'.
Jones predicted that Kavanaugh's nomination would move forward, unless further information is revealed.
Committee Republicans also released a statement Sunday dismissing the new revelations as "uncorroborated allegations from more than 35 years ago".

The Washington Post reports that Ford has already submitted to a polygraph and passed.
Additional notes show she described a "rape attempt" in her late teens.
The woman, Christine Blasey Ford, spoke to the Post on the record and confirmed details that had previously been reported in other outlets, including The New Yorker.
