Late on Wednesday evening, Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans announced that they have been speaking with two men who they believe had some kind of encounter with Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford in which they forced themselves on her. Blasey-Ford claimed that the two men who forced themselves on her were Brett Kavanaugh and Mark Judge, however the two men being interviewed are not Brett Kavanaugh and Mark Judge.
The Committee also released an investigative summary on the Supreme Court nominee late on Wednesday. The summary cites a 6th accuser who anonymously signed her letter as “Jane Doe.” She claims that Kavanaugh “raped her in the back seat of a car.”
A second man who has taken responsibility as the man who forced himself on Blasey-Ford is set to be interviewed by the Committee for a second time.
Politico reporter Burgess Everett wrote on Twitter, “Judiciary is also talking to someone who thinks he forced himself on Dr. Ford not Judge Kavanaugh.”

“For people asking for more info, this is from A long investigation summary from Judiciary Republicans distributed tonight. These interviews happened this week, according to the committee,” Burgess Everett reported.
The Senate Judiciary Committee talked to another man who gave them a written statement in which he claimed responsibility for the crime.

Christine Blasey Ford accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his childhood friend Mark Judge of sexually assaulting her more than three decades ago. Blasey-Ford is unable to provide specific details of the crime such as where it happened, when it happened, and all of the witnesses she named have claimed her story to be false. While we cannot say for sure that this is a delay tactic by the Democrats, it certainly seems to be.
Kavanaugh will be testifying shortly, and will likely be successful in clearing his name.
It is important to note that in his prepared testimony Kavanaugh stated that his accuser certainly may have been assaulted, but he was not the one who committed the crime. The testimony was released on Wednesday, the day before his scheduled hearing. We will continue to provide updates on Kavanaugh’s hearing and any new details as they become available.
What say you?
