Read Christine Blasey Ford's Prepared Testimony To The Senate Judiciary Committee

Blasey, the first woman to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, says the incident is "seared into my memory."

The testimony Christine Blasey Ford is prepared to give to the Senate Judiciary Committee on her sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was released Wednesday. 

Blasey has accused Kavanaugh of pinning her down, groping her and attempting to remove her clothing at a party in the early 1980s, when they were both in high school. 

“The details about that night that bring me here today are ones I will never forget,” Blasey’s statement reads. “They have been seared into my memory and have haunted me episodically as an adult.” 

Blasey and Kavanaugh are both scheduled to give their accounts to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.

Two other women, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick, have come forward this week with sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh from the 1980s. 

Kavanaugh has denied all the accusations.
