The article goes on to state the following:
The New Yorker reported Friday that the incident occurred in the early 1980s, when Kavanaugh was a student at Georgetown Preparatory School, an all-boys school in Bethesda, Md. The woman, meanwhile, went to a local high school.
The woman said in a letter sent to Democratic lawmakers this summer that during a party, Kavanaugh held her down and tried to force himself on her, according to The New Yorker.
Kavanaugh and his classmate, who were drinking, increased the volume of the music that was playing to hide her protests, the letter reportedly says. Kavanaugh allegedly used his hand to cover the woman’s mouth, before she was able to escape.
“I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation,” Kavanaugh said in a statement. “I did not do this back in high school or at any time.”
The classmate of Kavanaugh’s who was allegedly involved in the encounter said, “I have no recollection of that,” according to The New Yorker.
The encounter was detailed in a letter the unidentified woman sent to Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., after President Trump nominated Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office also received the letter and the woman reached out to the California Democrat’s office. After communicating with Eshoo’s and Feinstein’s office, the woman reportedly chose not to speak out about the incident.
