Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has strongly denied Christine Blasey Ford's accusation that he sexually assaulted her in 1982 when both were teenagers.

'I have never sexually assaulted anyone, not in high school, not in college, not ever,' Kavanaugh told the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday. 'I have never done this to her or to anyone.'

Hours earlier, Ford spoke at the public hearing. She told the senators she was '100 percent' certain that Kavanaugh and a friend of his, Mark Judge, locked her in a bedroom during a party near Washington D.C. She said Kavanaugh forced himself on top of her, groped her, and covered her mouth when she screamed for help.

Kavanaugh told senators he attended no such party. He accused Democrats of attacking him and his nomination for political gain.

Kavanaugh also said he will not be intimidated into withdrawing from the nomination.

Kavanaugh also denied accusations of sexual wrongdoing from several other women who came forward in the past week. He noted that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had found no suggestion of sexual wrongdoing in any of its six investigations of him during his career.

All those investigations were carried out before Ford's accusations were made public.

President Donald Trump chose Kavanaugh in July to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Trump tweeted shortly after the hearing.

"Judge Kavanaugh showed America exactly why I nominated him. His testimony was powerful, honest, and riveting," he wrote.

Christine Blasey Ford is a psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California. Brett Kavanaugh is a federal judge in Washington, D.C. They both attended private high schools in the D.C. area in the 1980s.
