Kirsters Baish| Ever since former high school classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Christine Blasey Ford, made allegations of sexual assault against him that date back more than three decades, her story has been taking one hit after another in the validity department. It just took its’ biggest hit yet. When Blasey-Ford suddenly offered up another name of someone who she stated was at the party in question, the “witness” decided to set the record straight, and it’s not looking good for Blasey-Ford.
In her letter, Kavanaugh’s accuser claims that he made an unwanted advance at her more than three decades ago while the two were at a party. At the time of the alleged crime, Kavanaugh would have been 17 and Blasey-Ford 15. She went on to claim that Kavanaugh’s advances were thwarted when Mark Judge (a high school friend of Kavanaugh’s) began roughhousing with the two of them. She stated that she was then able to free herself and go to the bathroom. She is unable to say exactly when the party was or where. She has changed details in her story numerous times, including things like how many people were at the party and how many people were in the room when the alleged attack took place.
Brett Kavanaugh and Mark Judge have both denied the allegations. Judge called the story “absolutely nuts.” Kavanaugh stated that he is willing and ready to talk to the Committee in order to defend himself at any point that they decide to call on him.
A vote had been scheduled for Thursday, but the Committee delated it in order to hear Kavanaugh’s testimony as well as Blasey-Ford’s testimony this coming Monday. Kavanaugh accepted, but Blasey-Ford refused to testify.
Another man has come forward named Patrick J. Smyth. Smyth believes that Ford also named him as a witness. What he had to say ruins her entire story.
Smyth said he doesn’t recall such a party ever even happening.
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.
“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.”
On top of that, he said he never saw Brett Kavanaugh display any sort of behavior even remotely similar to the accusations against him.
“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.”
The original letter didn’t mention “PJ” by name, however the WaPo did mention two other people as witnesses other than Kavanaugh and Judge. It is likely that Smyth is one of the two.
The Committee offered Kavanaugh’s accuser the opportunity to have a closed-door testimony, they offered for her to speak to staffers, they offered an open-court testimony. She refused all of it. Instead, she demanded a “full FBI investigation” into the allegations. Then, her lawyer falsely claimed that she was being forced to testify publicly.
