BOMBSHELL: Two Men Tell Judiciary Committee They Did It, Not Kavanaugh
See below for updates to this story.
On the eve the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing examining the stories of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, two men have reportedly come forward claiming that they, not Judge Kavanaugh, were the ones who had the encounter in question with Ford.
Burgess Everett, a reporter for Politico, broke the news on Twitter. "[Senate Judiciary] Committee staff have a second interview with a man who believes he, not Judge Kavanaugh, had the encounter with Dr. Ford in the summer of 1982 that is the basis of her allegation," Everett wrote. "He described his recollection of their interaction in some detail."
"For people asking for more info," Burgess added in a second tweet, "this is from a long investigation summary from Judiciary Republicans distributed tonight. These interviews happened this week, according to the committee."
Another Politico reporter added additional information about a second man. Elana Schor wrote on Twitter:
Senate Judiciary Rs release a Kavanaugh investigative summary that includes:
-an anonymous claim of rape fwded by Harris’ office
-two intvs & a written statement from a man “who believes he, not” Kav, assaulted Ford in 1982
-phone intvu w/a 2nd man who believes same as above
If one of the confessions turn out to be true, the man could be in serious legal jeopardy as there is no statute of limitations for rape in Maryland, where the alleged attack occurred.
