Believe all women, we’re told. Especially the ones who seem like tragic little damsels speaking before a congressional hearing about the alleged sexual deviancy of a Supreme Court nominee. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford had little to no evidence she was attacked by Brett Kavanaugh, who likes beers. But one thing she did have going for her was the support of her high school friend and supposed party-attendee, Leland. Except as it turns out… not so much. From The Washington Examiner:
“I don’t have any confidence in the story,” Keyser told New York Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly in their new book, The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation, a copy of which was obtained by the Washington Examiner… “Those facts together I don’t recollect, and it just didn’t make any sense,” Keyser told the authors.
Well gosh. The supposed confidante of Ford and her story says the tale is tall. Perhaps we should reconsider the entire summer of 2018, explaining it in history books as the Democrats’ solution to judges who can’t be intimidated into carrying out their baby-killing bidding.
Intimidating isn’t a word I’m using lightly. You may wonder why Leland Keyser is changing her tune now. Skip further down the Washington Examiner’s article and you’ll find this little nugget:
It was later reported that Keyser told the FBI she’d felt pressure to change her story to be more supportive of Ford. “Keyser later said she felt pressure by both [Ford classmate Lucy] Gonella and Ford’s friend Monica McLean to change her story,” Pogrebin and Kelly wrote. “I was told behind the scenes that certain things could spread about me if I didn’t comply,” Keyser told the authors.
Blackmail? I’d feign shock but my shock face is still feigning from last summer when Christy Ford couldn’t remember how she got to the party or how she got home from the party where He Who Likes Beers allegedly attacked her. Kind of seems like an event as traumatic as being almost raped might register a few more ticks in the old noggin. Also seems like Christy would’ve told her friends what had happened, as the stereotype “Girls tell each other everything” is largely true.
Yet Leland Keyser didn’t buy it a year ago, but went along with it to spare herself blackmail. Allegedly. Now Justice Kavanaugh is sitting on the SCOTUS bench, she’s giving her real thoughts on Christine Blasey-Ford’s supposed night out in some kind of neighborhood, but don’t ask for the street.
The timing of all this is rather suspect:
Hmmm. Am I being paranoid, or does it seem like these recent attacks on Kavanaugh coincide with Ginsberg's fading health?
