[Ed. – Doesn’t that make 98% of the country’s population non-credible? – Matt Walsh]
Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh has issued a new statement denying the allegation that he sexually assaulted a teenage girl when both were in high school. “This is a completely false allegation,” he said right up front. The Supreme Court nominee insisted that he has “never done anything like what the accuser describes.”
His statement is intriguing for what it does and doesn’t say. Absent from the statement are assertions that:
- He didn’t know Ford.
- He didn’t drink to excess in high school.
- He didn’t attend this party or parties such as the one described by Ford.
One potential problem for Kavanaugh, of course, is that if he knew Ford, and was at this or other similar parties and drank to excess in high school, he becomes (aside from self-interest) a non-credible witness. She apparently has a distinct memory; he allegedly was drunk. That’s a problem for him if she comes across as certain, credible and earnest, while he is relying on his memory as a drunk teenager.
