WASHINGTON — Christine Blasey Ford says she is certain she did not mistakenly identify Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as her attacker at a party when they were both in high school more than 30 years ago.
Twice during the televised hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, Ford asserted that her claim against Kavanaugh was not a case of mistaken identity.
Ford was first responding to questions from Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein about how she could be sure it was Kavanaugh and not someone else who assaulted her in the bedroom of a home in a Maryland suburb of Washington, D.C.
Ford said, “The same way I am sure I am talking to you right now.”
Feinstein said: “So what you are telling us is this could not be a case of mistaken identity.”
Ford’s response: “Absolutely not.”
Later, in response to Sen. Dick Durbin’s question asking what degree of certainty Ford had that it was Kavanaugh, Ford says she is “100 percent” certain that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were high-school teenagers.
