The story of an unwanted sexual encounter decades ago in which the accuser was hazy on all details except that the identity of the 17-year-old who forced himself on her has been unraveling now for weeks. On Saturday we learned that another woman who had claimed Brett Kavanaugh raped her admitted to having invented her sordid tale “to get attention.” Two weeks before that, accuser Julie Swetnick and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, were referred for criminal investigation by Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley based on new evidence suggesting that Swetnick had been lying.

Now a new loose thread has emerged that may undo Christine Blasey Ford’s account once and for all. Fox News reports that a 414-page document, authored by the Republican majority and released over the weekend, includes a summary of a statement made by a man who believes he may have been involved in an encounter with Ford around the time of her claim of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh.

The man who claims he may have had the encounter with Ford was one of 40 people committee investigators interviewed as part of its probe into the sexual allegations against Kavanaugh, which was done alongside the FBI background check that was compiled in a matter of days.

Ford testified she was 100 percent positive Kavanaugh assaulted her, rejecting the notion of a case of mistaken identity.

But the report gave details from the purported witness claiming exactly that scenario. The man told the investigators that when he was a 19-year-old college student, he had visited Washington over spring break and kissed a girl he believes was Kavanaugh’s accuser.

“He said that the kiss happened in the bedroom of a house which was about a 15-to-20 minute walk from the Van Ness Metro [in Northwest D.C.], that Dr. Ford was wearing a swimsuit under her clothing, and that the kissing ended when a friend jumped on them as a joke,” the report said.

Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, who made then-Judge Kavanaugh’s life a living hell that has endured even after his swearing in as a Supreme Court justice — he and his family continue to receive death threats — knew some of the information about this unnamed witness during the hearings but chose to remain tight-lipped about it.
