In a new twist, Committee staff has reportedly interviewed two men who say that they were actually the two teens who may as assaulted Christine Blasey Ford in 1982 and not Judge Brett Kavanaugh. It is not clear what further information will be released on this latest disclosure but it raises an obviously serious matter for both sides. I remain leery of this lat minute leak and the lack of details — unfortunately a common element in this ongoing controversy.
The report says that a man gave details about the assault and that a second man corroborated the account. Those details could be inserted into questions for Ford today and, if she confirms them, could be used to reaffirm the accounts of these men.
Ford maintains that she may not remember details but does remember Kavanaugh. Moreover, the lack of details here is unfair to Ford. If there are two such witnesses, either they are credible or they are not. The burden is on the Committee to come forward with information on whether they believe that this is credible and not just leak the incomplete story.
