A second supposed witness to the alleged assault by Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh is contradicting the claims of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
Ford has alleged that Kavanaugh groped her and tried to rape her at a party in the early 1980s. Her allegation says several individuals that could support her claims, but so far, two of those supposed people have disputed the claim.
Both individuals say there was no party like the one Dr. Ford described, and no situation in which Kavanaugh assaulted her, as she alleges.
Although he was not named specifically in Ford’s statement, media reports say one of the supposed witnesses was Patrick J. Smyth, a classmate with Kavanaugh in the early 1980s. He makes it clear, in a letter released by his lawyer, that he had no recollection of a party like the one Ford described. He also insists he never saw Kavanaugh act inappropriately towards any female during his time with him.
That denial comes as supposed witness Mark Judge, who Ford alleges was in the room when the assault happened, denied any such incident took place.
Smyth’s letter comes on the heels of a statement from Mark Judge — who was allegedly in the room with Kavanaugh and Ford at the time — that also denied such a party ever occurred.
“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, CNN reported. “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.”
The letter continued, “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 toward 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.”
So far three of the four individuals who allegedly attended the party, Kavanaugh included, have denied it ever happened.
With Ford now refusing to testify before Congress before an FBI investigation is completed, the confirmation process may go on without any resolution on the allegations.
