Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who wrote the letter accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, has gone public with her story in a shocking Washington Post interview.

Ford claims Kavanaugh, 53, viciously attacked her years ago and "I thought he might inadvertently kill me."

"He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing."

Kavanaugh has staunchly denied the allegations.

Ford, a 51-year-old research psychologist who lives in in northern California, was the mystery woman whose anonymous letter Senator Dianne Feinstein decided to give to the FBI — before a vote on deciding on confirmation of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

But now, Ford has decided to reveal her identity.

While admitting that she doesn't recall some key details of the incident, Ford told the newspaper that she believes Kavanaugh allegedly attacked her in the summer of 1982, when she was 15, around the end of her sophomore year at the all-girls Holton-Arms School in Bethesda, Maryland.

Kavanaugh would have been 17 at the end of his junior year at Georgetown Prep.

Students from both schools socialized often, and Ford said she wound up in a house in Montgomery County with no parents present.

Ford claimed that she and other kids drank beer together at the private home and that Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge, had started drinking earlier and were already intoxicated.

Ford said tried to go to the bathroom, when she was allegedly pushed into a bedroom and onto a bed; she was wearing clothes over a one-piece bathing suit.

She contended that Kavanaugh then grinded down on her with his body and drunkenly fumbled with her clothes.

Meanwhile, Judge stood across the room as both he and Kavanaugh were laughing, Ford alleged.

Kavanaugh allegedly put his hand over her mouth when she tried to scream.

Ford claimed Judge jumped on top of them, and she tried to break free.

Because Judge sent them tumbling, she eventually got away, locked herself in the bathroom and listened until she heard the boys "going down the stairs, hitting the walls."

When the coast was clear, Ford claimed, she fled the house.

The woman told The Post that she hasn't spoken with Kavanaugh since that night.

At the time, she didn't confide her story to anyone out of fear, Ford said.

Kavanaugh issued a statement last week, when the anonymous story from Ford became news, which read, "I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time."

Through a White House spokesman, Kavanaugh declined to comment further on Ford's claims after she came out of the shadows today.

His friend Judge has denied Ford's contentions, saying, "It's just absolutely nuts. I never saw Brett act that way."

President Donald Trump is standing by his nominee for the highest court in the land—who is intended to replace retired Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Trump, 72, has bragged about married-with-kids Kavanaugh's "impeccable credentials," and strong leadership skills.
