Accuser Christine Blasey Ford is waging a war on Trump’s SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh with decades-old, unsubstantiated claims of sexual assault in an effort to derail his confirmation to the Supreme Court.
Judge Kavanaugh has categorically denied the allegations and even told Senator Orin Hatch he wasn’t at the party in question.
Others have come out in defense of Kavanaugh such as witness Mark Judge who said in a letter he does not wish to speak publicly on the incident.
Mark Judge said in a letter sent by his legal counsel to Grassley, “I have no memory of this alleged incident..Kavanaugh and I were friends in high school but I do not recall the party described in..Ford’s letter. More to the point, I never saw Brett act in the manner..Ford describes”
Senator Dianne Feinstein circulated Christine Ford’s unredacted letter about the allegations against Kavanaugh to her staff –which of course was subsequently leaked to the media–Chuck Grassley, the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee says he still hasn’t seen the unredacted letter even though he has after repeatedly asked for the document.
Feinstein is withholding evidence from the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Ed Whelan, Justice Scalia’s former law clerk and president of conservative think tank the Ethics and Public Policy Center (EPPC), came out in defense of Brett Kavanaugh and said compelling evidence will come out next week exonerating Kavanaugh.
Ed Whelan: By one week from today, I expect that Judge Kavanaugh will have been clearly vindicated on this matter. Specifically, I expect that compelling evidence will show his categorical denial to be truthful. There will be no cloud over him.
Ed Whelan continued “It’s precisely b/c sexual assault is so terrible that it is deeply unjust when someone is mistakenly (even good-faith mistakenly) accused of having committed it,” he said. “Everyone should rejoice when the mistake is found.”
“And the sooner the mistake is discovered, the better.”
She’s got the wrong guy, said Whelan.
“Senator Feinstein will soon be apologizing to Judge Kavanaugh.”
