Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has come out and accused SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, has also named four other boys who were in attendance at the high school pool party where the incident is alleged to have taken place.
However, the second man named by Ford has come out and denied the allegations made by her about the alleged assault.
Ford, a clinical psychology professor at Palo Alto University, claims that 35 years ago, when she was 15 and Kavanaugh was 17, Kavanaugh attempted to force himself on her while another boy, Mark Judge, was in the room. When Judge jumped on the two, apparently “rough-housing,” Ford said she managed to get away.Advertisement - story continues below
Kavanaugh and Judge have both denied the allegation. Now a second potential witness who Ford says was at the party, Patrick J. Smyth, has likewise denied any knowledge of the party or alleged incident.
Smyth, who graduated with Kavanaugh from Georgetown Prep back in 1983, gave his response in a letter sent by his attorney Eric Bruce to the Senate Judiciary Committee obtained by CNN.Trending:
“I understand that I have been identified by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as the person she remembers as ‘PJ’ who supposedly was present at the party she described in her statements to the Washington Post,” Smyth says in the statement. “I am issuing this statement today to make it clear to all involved that I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh.”
Smyth also provided his unequivocal endorsement of Kavanaugh: “Personally speaking, I have known Brett Kavanaugh since high school and I know him to be a person of great integrity, a great friend, and I have never witnessed any improper conduct by Brett Kavanaugh towards women. To safeguard my own privacy and anonymity, I respectfully request that the Committee accept this statement in response to any inquiry the Committee may have.”
This is the second individual to come out and deny Ford’s claims, which means that this whole situation is not looking good for her. Could this possibly be just another attempt by the left to sabotage Trump’s efforts to install conservative judges in the Supreme Court?
It’s possible. However, if this incident isn’t true, Ford is doing severe damage to the witness of women who are victims of sexual assault all across the country. It’s not fair to those who have really experienced this sort of awful treatment to not be taken seriously due to the weaponization of allegations of misconduct.
If Ford is making all of this up, shame on her.
