When Christine Ford’s testimony resumed, Rachel Mitchell, the Maricopa County, AZ, prosecutor who is conducting the questioning on behalf of the GOP members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, finally got around to asking about why all the people she says were at the house say that nothing like what Ford describes ever happened. Two of them, Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge, have a reason to deny it. They are both the villains in Ford’s fantasy. The one whose denial can’t be explained is her lifelong friend, the former Mrs. Bob Beckel, Leland Keyser.
Is Ford doesn't think Leland Keyser is credible because of “health issues” then why did she name her? When Keyser disputed the account it seems her health was then called into question?

Dr. Ford accuses her longtime friend and fellow woman Leland Keyser of "having health issues" and therefore can't remember being at the party. Keyser, along with all the other witnesses named by Ford, have no recollection the party occurred.

So Leland, whose testimony is matched by others, must be unable to remember the alleged party because she has "health issues," but Ford, whose testimony is matched by nobody, must be assumed to be telling the truth. Why? https://t.co/Zgoawf07dd

Pretty ironic that the woman who said she can’t remember he own grandmother’s funeral…or much of anything else…is saying someone else has a faulty memory.
This fits in very nicely with what we saw earlier in the day. When confronted is inconsistencies, Ford simply bluffs her way through them and everyone is too scared of touching some kind of emotional third rail to call her out.
