One of the women that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford claimed was at the party where she alleges that SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted back in the early 1980s told FBI investigators that the accuser’s “allies” pressured her into changing her story about the events that unfolded that night.
Leland Keyser, Ford’s friend, said that former FBI agent Monica McLean urged her to make alterations to her original statement, which noted that she did not remember any such party taking place or knowing Kavanaugh.
The Journal noted that Keyser’s statement to the FBI offered “a glimpse into how Dr. Ford’s allies were working behind the scenes to lobby old classmates to bolster their versions of the alleged incident.”
A source close to the situation told the Journal that Dr. Ford’s friends “including Ms. McLean, had contacted Ms. Keyser after her initial statement to warn her that her statement was being used by Republicans to rebut the allegation against Judge Kavanaugh.”Trending:
In a statement, David Laufman, McLean’s attorney, denied the allegations, writing: “Any notion or claim that Ms. McLean pressured Leland Keyser to alter Ms. Keyser’s account of what she recalled concerning the alleged incident between Dr. Ford and Brett Kavanaugh is absolutely false.”
The Journal notes that allies of Kavanaugh also reached out to people, including former classmate Karen Yarasavage, who said that she was asked to go on record about the allegation made by Deborah Ramirez.Advertisement - story continues below
Ford’s ex-boyfriend claimed this week in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee that Ford had coached McLean on how to pass a polygraph test so she could get into the FBI. This accusation was serious because, if true, Ford perjured herself under oath when she said that she had “never” given anyone any tips on how to take a polygraph test.

All of this comes hot on the heels of Ford’s story being thoroughly dismantled by prosecutor Rachel Mitchell who questioned her during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, stating it was “even weaker than a he said, she said” case.
It seems pretty safe to say that Ford is about as far from credible as a human being can possibly get and that her story is nothing more than cannon fodder for the left who tried to use her as a means of stopping Kavanaugh from being confirmed.
Well, it looks like that strategy backfired. Big time.
Hopefully, Kavanaugh will be confirmed soon, maybe this weekend, and we’ll finally be able to move on from this fiasco and get back to making America great again.
