"This is a completely false allegation. I have never done anything like what the accuser describes — to her or to anyone."
"Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday."
"I am willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the Committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity."
