READ: Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s prepared remarks for Thursday hearing

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday released the full text of the prepared testimony of Christine Blasey Ford, the first of three women accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

{mosads}Ford and Kavanaugh are slated to speak before the panel Thursday. 

Ford alleges that Kavanaugh attempted to remove her clothing and stifled her screams during a high school party in the early 1980s. Kavanaugh has fiercely denied her allegations.

Two other women, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick, have also accused Kavanaugh in recent days of sexual misconduct in the 1980s. Kavanaugh also has denied those claims.
