Kavanaugh denies sexual assault allegation

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh denied he sexually assaulted a woman in the 1980s while they were in high school. "I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time," Kavanaugh said in the statement.

The woman claimed in a letter, sent to the Senate Democrats, he tried to force himself on her during a party while they were in high school. Democrats vetting his nomination said they had referred the incident to the FBI.

The allegation came just one week before the Senate Judiciary Committee is to vote on his nomination.
