Two Men Interviewed After Claiming It Was Them, Not Brett Kavanaugh, Who Had Encounter With Blasey Ford

During his interview with Fox News on Monday, Brett Kavanaugh said:

“I am not questioning and have not questioned that perhaps Dr. Ford at some point in her life was sexually assaulted by someone at some place,” he added. “But what I know is, I’ve never sexually assaulted anyone.”

Last night it was announced that the Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans had interviewed two men who claimed that it was them, not Brett Kavanaugh, who had been involved in the assault alleged by Christine Blasey Ford:

The committee has interviewed two men who came forward about the disputed assault at a summer house party. Both told the committee they, not Kavanaugh, “had the encounter with Dr. Ford in 1982 that is the basis of his complaint,” the release states.

One of the men was interviewed twice by committee staff. He also submitted two written statements, one on Monday and a second, more in-depth statement on Wednesday.

Committee staff spoke to a second man over the phone Wednesday who also said he believed he, not Kavanaugh, had the disputed encounter with Ford. “He explained his recollection of the details of the encounter” to staff, the release states.

Democrats were not happy with the timing of the two men coming forward:

“Republicans are flailing,” the aide said, according to NBC News. “They are desperately trying to muddy the waters. … Twelve hours before the hearing they suggest two anonymous men claimed to have assaulted her. Democrats were never informed of these assertions in interviews, in violation of Senate rules.”

  1. Oh, so NOW the Democrats want to be involved in the process? Well screw them, they were invited to question, investigate, and share in the process and declined. Well, this is what happens when you decline to be involved in an investigation, [best Willy Wonka voice] you get nothing!
