Kavanaugh Accuser Names Four People to Corroborate Claims. Just One Small Problem.

Published

on

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.

While Dems Focus On Impeachment, Trump Flips Another Circuit Court to Conservative Majority

This is what matters. Trump continues to reshape the judiciary.

When it’s all said and done and the public hearings are over, the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives will most likely vote in favor of impeaching President Trump. They won’t have any proof he did anything wrong. But that’s not the point. As noted by freshman know-nothing AOC, impeachment is about preventing Trump from winning election next year. The thing is, the Senate is controlled by Republicans. Meaning, there will be a trial and yada yada before POTUS is eventually cleared. What you’re seeing today is just the start of a long process that will go nowhere, eventually leading to a Trump victory in November 2020. Until then, 45 still has to do the work of the people. While the left does everything possible to remove him from office, Trump is continuing to reshape the federal judiciary. From Washington Examiner: With the confirmation of White House attorney Steven Menashi to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, another federal appeals court has a majority of Republican-appointed judges. Menashi, whose nomination was vehemently opposed by Democrats and civil rights groups, was confirmed by the Senate, 51-41. Republican Maine Sen. Susan Collins joined Democrats in opposing the 40-year-old’s nomination. The 2nd Circuit now has seven judges tapped by Republican presidents and six named by Democrats. CONTINUED: The 2nd Circuit is the second federal appeals court Trump has remade to have a majority of judges appointed by GOP presidents. In March, the president flipped the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals with the confirmation of Paul Matey. Trump is also close to shifting the balance of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to majority Republican-appointed judges, with the Senate expected to vote on the nominations of Robert Luck and Barbara Lagoa in the coming days. He has also brought the 9th U.S. Circuit…

MSNBC Host Suggests Republicans ‘Responsible’ for Deaths of Recent School Shooting

They just keep saying the silliest things…

A recent school shooting in Santa Clarita, California left two teenage girls dead. The 16-year-old shooter, Nathaniel Tennosuke Berhow, then turned the gun on himself. On Friday night, Berhow died from his injury. This quote from MSNBC’s Katy Tur is rich considering Democrats literally support killing babies, but what can you do? To suggest that Republicans are guilty of school shootings and killing kids holds no water whatsoever and liberals know it. They just don’t care. Nothing about what Democrats stand for makes sense, though. Even worse is that while Tur is speaking about the Santa Clarita incident, she fails to mention that Berhow used a handgun and that 16-year-olds can’t legally own guns. Funny how Tur doesn’t bring up that point. What law would’ve prevented the shooting, Katy? Check this out, via Daily Wire: MSNBC news anchor Katy Tur pressed a guest during her show on Thursday about whether Republican lawmakers should be held responsible for gun deaths amid news of a school shooting that was happening at the time in Santa Clarita, California. “You were just speaking about senators not showing the courage to put their seats at risk to pass common-sense gun reform, background checks, etc.,” Tur asked Ret. Special Agent Jim Cavanaugh with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. “Would you go so far as to hold them responsible for the deaths that are continuing, the lives that are continuing to be lost with gun violence?” Cavanaugh responded, “I clearly do. All leaders have a responsibility to act responsibly to help the citizens and it is not responsible to block a debate or to block a vote and that is what’s happening. That is totally irresponsible, that’s not leadership, it shows no leadership integrity, it is done to protect their seats. They don’t want…
