Two weeks ago, Senator Kamala Harris received a hand-written letter from an anonymous Oceanside woman stating that Kavanaugh and another man had raped her after a party. And last week, on the night before the grueling Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Judge Brett Kavanaugh was privately questioned by legislative staffers on the anonymous letter.
The letter was two-and-a-half pages long, and they spent just over twenty minutes interviewing Kavanaugh about it on Wednesday night.
"The whole thing is ridiculous," Kavanaugh said during the questioning. "Nothing ever -- anything like that, nothing. I mean that. The whole thing's just a crock, farce, wrong, didn't happen, not anything close!"
The anonymous accuser claimed that Kavanaugh continued groping her after she had begged him to stop, and that his friend covered her mouth to prevent her from screaming. She's now a teacher, and didn't want to publicly come forward in fear of negative impact on her family.
"Just because something happens a long time ago, because a rape victim doesn't want to personally come forward, does not mean something can't be true,” the woman wrote in the letter.
At the end of Kavanaugh's questioning, staffers informed him that the interview was "not part of the FBI background investigation because we received these allegations outside of the FBI background investigation."
