So far, Christine Ford, the California professor who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of groping her 37 years ago, has been less than forthcoming with anything that approaches a verifiable detail of her experience. She doesn’t know what year it happened. She doesn’t know what month it happened. She doesn’t know where the house was or whose parents it belonged to. She doesn’t know how she got home. Those are huge, gaping holes in any account of anything and yet, Ford’s supporters shamelessly contend that this is a natural reaction to this simulacrum of a trauma. One bit of information she has provided, oddly enough, are the names of the other three teens in the house at the time.
Two of them are male. Mark Judge and Patrick Smyth have both provided letters, via their attorneys, to the Senate Judiciary Committee denying any knowledge of any party such as the one Ford describes.
There is a third witness, the young woman that accompanied her to the alleged party and who the young Christine Blasey abandoned in a house filled with drunk males who, according to Ford, had rape on their minds. Now the young woman has been located. And she has provided a statement, by way of her attorney:
CNN has learned that the committee has reached out to a longtime friend of Ford named Leland Ingham Keyser.
On Saturday night, her lawyer, Howard Walsh, released a statement to CNN and the Senate Judiciary Committee..
“Simply put,” Walsh said, “Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.”
The lawyer acknowledged to CNN that Keyser is a lifelong friend of Ford’s.
Keyser is the latest person alleged to be at the party to say she has no recollection of it.
“I understand that you have been identified as an individual who was in attendance at a party that occurred circa 1982 described in a recent Washington Post article,” a committee staffer wrote Keyser earlier this week.
So now we have three witnesses, plus Brett Kavanaugh, agreeing that this party never happened, much less the incident. And all have done so under penalty of prosecution for providing a false statement to Congress. This means the only person not on the record is Christine Ford.
Well, this is interesting.

What makes this so sweet is that Ms. Keyser seems to have once been Mrs. Bob Beckel.
Interesting that she was formerly married to liberal former FOX personality Bob Beckel…https://t.co/rhRrT9DY1I

It seems that Ford can add one additional symptom to her unique variety of sexual trauma…no one else remembers anything about the event either.
