Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh says he has further evidence he never sexually assaulted someone, and that the charges against him are politically motivated.
And he’s bringing it to the Senate.
In her original accusation, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford claims Kavanaugh tried to violently rape her during a high school party involving herself and four others.
Over the weekend, a woman identified by Ford as someone with knowledge of the alleged assault came forward and denied any memory of the incident.
Leland Ingham Keyser’s lawyer wrote a letter that, under oath, his client “does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.”
Keyser is a longtime friend of Ford. Her letter means that every one of Ford’s named witnesses of the party — male and female — have denied any memory that the event took place.
Ford’s lawyer, Deborah Katz, dismissed Keyser’s claims as “unsurprising” because nothing happened to Keyser at the alleged party. Additionally, said Katz, Ford never mentioned the alleged violent attack to her friends.
Kavanaugh himself has a plan. He kept a detailed calendar of his actitives throughout the summer of 1982, the year of the alleged incident. On the calendar he lists vacations, beach trips, party’s with friends — but there is no mention of the alleged party with the people Ford said were present.
“The calendar pages from June, July and August 1982, which were examined by The New York Times, show that Judge Kavanaugh was out of town much of the summer at the beach or away with his parents,” The New York Times reported. “When he was at home, the calendars list his basketball games, movie outings, football workouts and college interviews. A few parties are mentioned but include names of friends other than those identified by Dr. [Ford].”
By itself, the calendar isn’t proof of Kavanaugh’s innocence. But it’s existence — and the detailed notes on it — does support his story.
When combined with the fact that every single reported eyewitness — including Ford’s close personal friend — deny any memory of the incident, it significantly weakens the accusations.
