The legal team of Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford claims they have four individuals who can corroborate her claims that the SCOTUS nominee sexually assaulted her at a party in 1982.
However, that’s not entirely accurate. In fact, the claim is downright misleading.
USA Today published the report just before midnight on Tuesday which quickly spread on Twitter, with many on the political left automatically making the assumption that this was the end for Kavanaugh.

Ford’s lawyers sent “sworn and signed declarations from four people” to the Senate Judiciary Committee, which they claim corroborate Ford’s claim that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her.
All four people who can “corroborate” her claims were told in the years after her 2012 therapy sessions — where she never used Kavanaugh’s name — about the alleged incident from over 35 years ago.
One of the people listed is her husband, the other three are close friends of hers. USA Today reports:
In her declaration, Adela Gildo-Mazzon said Ford told her about the alleged assault during a June 2013 meal at a restaurant in Mountain View, California, and contacted Ford’s attorneys on Sept. 16 to tell them Ford had confided in her five years ago.
In another declaration, Keith Koegler said Ford revealed the alleged assault to him in 2016, when the two parents were watching their children play in a public place and discussing the “light” sentencing of Stanford University student Brock Turner.
In another declaration, Rebecca White, a neighbor and friend of more than six years, said Ford revealed the alleged assault against her in 2017.
In his declaration, Ford’s husband said he learned of his wife’s experience with sexual assault “around the time we got married” but that she didn’t share details until a couple’s therapy session in 2012.
There are still several issues with Ford’s allegations that none of these statements fixes, which casts a considerable amount of doubt on her allegations against Kavanaugh.
For one, she’s not sure of the location of the party where she says the incident occurred and is also unsure of the actual year it took place, saying she “thinks” it’s 1982. However, Kavanaugh has calendars from that year, which calls her memory into question even more.
There are no contemporaneous witnesses to back up her story, as Ford told no one of the incident when it occurred.
Back in 2012, Ford stated that four boys were in the room when the assault happened. She’s since changed her story, stating only two boys were present in the room, and that there were three boys and one girl at the party. She also never mentioned Kavanaugh’s name to her therapist.
None of her immediate family members are backing up her story, including her mother, father, and two siblings.
And to top it all off, Ford spoke with the Washington Post and said that one of the reasons she was upset when Trump won the 2016 election was because Kavanaugh was mentioned as a SCOTUS pick. However, Kavanaugh wasn’t even added to the list of possibles until November of 2017, which was a full year later.
No matter how you cut the cheese, there’s just something fishy about Ford’s allegations. In fact, it smells like political opportunism.
