Thus far, SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh is holding his ground against Democrat activist and Palo Alto professor Christine Blasey Ford, who has come forward with “attempted rape” accusations from more than 35 years ago. Ford has since raised the stakes, saying she is willing to testify about the incident from high school. Kavanaugh, too, has said he is willing to testify under oath about the accusation, releasing the following statement: “This is a completely false allegation. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes-to her or to anyone. Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday.” One might wonder if this is simply a warmed over version of the Anita Hill “scandal,” which threatened to derail the confirmation of Justice Clarence Thomas nearly 30 years ago. Despite “hope and change,” some things never change.
Here’s more from The Daily Wire…
The woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of having attempted to force himself on her at a party when they were both in high school says she is willing to testify about the alleged sexual assault. Kavanaugh has responded in a statement Monday by saying he is also willing to testify under oath.
On Monday, the lawyer representing California professor Christine Blasey Ford says she is willing to testify publicly before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the “attempted rape” she says happened over three decades ago that was brought to light by Democrats in the eleventh hour of the confirmation process:

Kavanaugh adamantly denies the allegation, as does the other man named by Ford, Mark Judge.
“I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time,” Kavanaugh said when the allegation first came to light last week.
