The author of a slanderous political hit piece on Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh admitted in an interview Monday morning that the subject of his piece made allegations against the Judge only after Democrats sought her out.
“She came forward because Senate Democrats came looking for this claim. She did not flag this. This came to the attention of people on the hill independently, and it has co cornered her into an awkward position,” said Ronan Farrow in an interview with ABC. “She said, point-blank, I don’t want to ruin anyone’s life, but she feels this is a serious claim. She considers her own memories credible and she felt it was important to tell her own story before others did for her.”
The second Kavanaugh accuser, also making 11th-hour allegations at a very convenient time for the #StopKavanaugh crowd, claims that the Judge drunkenly exposed himself to her at a Yale party 30 years ago. It took her six days of coaching from an attorney to feel ” confident enough of her recollections” to accuse Kavanaugh, though there are admittedly “gaps” in her memory due to excessive drinking.
“The New Yorker has not confirmed with other eyewitnesses that Kavanaugh was present at the party,” Farrow’s article said.
In other words, there is absolutely no way to prove the allegations, and once again the Judge is presumed guilty and forced to refute baseless allegations.
“This is a woman I was best friends with,” said the former friend of the alleged victim. “We shared intimate details of our lives. And I was never told this story by her, or by anyone else. It never came up. I didn’t see it; I never heard of it happening,.”
The GOP is set to hold a hearing with Christine Ford Blasey, the first accuser, on Thursday as Kavanaugh’s confirmation hangs in the balance.
