Another witness named by Ford becomes third person to deny being at party

Via The Washington Examiner


A witness, reportedly named by Christine Blasey Ford as one of the people at the high school party where Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulted her, told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Saturday she was not there.

The attorney for Leland Ingham Keyser told the Senate Judiciary Committee that Keyser does not remember being at the party Ford described as the location of the alleged assault.

“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,” Keyser said in the statement. CNN reported Keyser is a lifelong friend of Ford’s.

Keyser, whom the New York Times reported is one of the people Ford named as being in attendance at the party, is the third witness who has denied knowing about the alleged assault. Mark Judge and Patrick Smyth said earlier this week they did not remember the party in question.

Kavanaugh has denied Ford’s allegation.

The news comes after Ford, through her attorneys, tentatively agreed to testify on Thursday, after days of negotiations over the timing and conditions of her

Committee chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, had repeatedly extended deadlines set for Ford’s team on the decision, including three on Friday and one at 2:30 p.m. Saturday. Grassley threatened to proceed with a committee vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination Monday if he did not hear from Ford.

“Five times now we [have] granted extension for Dr Ford to decide if she wants to proceed [with] her desire stated one [week] ago that she wants to tell senate her story,” Grassley tweeted Friday. “Dr Ford if u changed ur mind say so so we can move on I want to hear ur testimony. Come to us or we to u.”

The extended discussions have been labeled a delaying tactic by some Republicans.

Ford’s attorneys and Grassley’s aides will reportedly continue negotiations Sunday on the details of the conditions of Ford’s testimony, per the New York Times.

To even allow this to proceed is crazy. This is teenage stuff from school, the man´s record as an adult is stellar; this is all liberal bullshit to keep a conservative off the court.

Ford’s recent excu … er, reason … for not making it to the Congress on time is a “fear of flying.” One wonders if she might not want to review her Erica Jong on the long road trip from one coast to the other. What is really interesting about all of this is the institution to which she has devoted her academic lie … er, life … is one that SPECIALISES in counseling and psychology. This, I find, is another opportunity to show that her alliances and allegiances have failed her, seemingly without interruption. Not only will some of the… Read more »

It should be very clear to everyone by now that this IS a contrived “farce”. The woman is obviously a freaked out “dupe” and the entire charade is aimed at delaying the vote past the deadline. The Republicans better open their damned eyes and vote the man in. The secondary purpose is to confuse the “feeble minded” in the upcoming elections. Do trust that there are a majority of sensible strong minded voters that see through this carnival and vote in a Red Tsunami that will obliterate the sickly blue wave..

what the Democracts have done and are doing is so amateurish, that one sometimes thinks, that both parties are in on it. In on what? Selling Trump’s integrity to the American People. After all, anyone with a a whit of fairness would feel how shabbily Trump is being treated. In all of this anyone with a feeling of fairness can see he has been wronged as far as WHAT THEY”RE CHARGING HIM WITH. Russia collusion, now his nominee attempted raped of a former school mate without substance. So…… a large swath of voters are on board with backing Trump and… Read more »
