Two men have come forward to tell Senate investigators they, not Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, could have been responsible for the encounter Christine Blasey Ford describes when she says she was sexually assaulted at a high school party 36 years ago.
The Judiciary Committee Republican staff did not release any details about the men, but said each had been interviewed, and one had provided a written statement.
Each of the men described “in some detail” their recollection of their encounter with Ms. Blasey Ford, the GOP staff said in a memo late Wednesday, less than 12 hours before Ms. Blasey Ford is slated to testify about her memories of the assault.
Ms. Blasey Ford, in testimony prepared for Thursday, leaves no room for doubt that it was Judge Kavanaugh who she believes assaulted her. She recalls spending her days at the Columbia Country Club, swimming and practicing diving, and one evening in particular when she went to a party in the area and was pulled into a room by two boys — one of who she says was Judge Kavanaugh.
