According to Time Magazine in August 2019, Christine accused Brett of sexual assault back in September 2018. It has been claimed that Brett pinned her down and had attempted to rape her in 1980 while they were in high school.
However, after the allegations, her peaceful life turned into hell. She would have to find a place to hide from the bad environment she was going through. Her mails used to be full of hate and threats. She was even threatened to death, as reported by The Guardian. Recently, Arizona sex-crimes prosecutor questioned her about the assault case.
With all these information and data gathered from the reputed leaders and Christine’s close ones, the book "Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court" has been published.
