Senate Judiciary Reportedly Interviewed Man Who Believes He Assaulted Ford, Not Kavanaugh

And the plot thickens.

A letter written by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford caused a political firestorm when she alleged that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party in the early 1980s.

On Thursday night, Politico congressional reporter Burgess Everett shared a nugget from a lengthy investigation summary written by Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee about someone they had interviewed multiple times.

“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,” the summary read.

For those on Twitter who were demanding more information from Everett, he tweeted that it came from the summary that was distributed by the Republicans on the Judiciary Committee.

Fox News’ Ed Henry later reported that the nugget was “buried” on either page four or five of a rough timeline and that the man in question submitted a written statement before the interview Monday and that according the summary he “described his recollection of their interaction in some detail.”

Henry did caution viewers that this person can “turn out to be fake” but also suggested that the committee’s late night release of this information may hint that it may come up during Thursday’s hearing.
