Alleged Kavanaugh Accomplice Makes Testimony Announcement That Has People Enraged

President Donald Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s path to the bench has long been derailed at this point. A California professor named Christine Blasey Ford has brought forth her story of facing an attempted rape at Kavanaugh’s hands a number of years ago, and members of the U.S. Senate are still facing the question of how to deal with this issue. Now, as they prepare for a hearing set for Monday to hear out competing sides on the issue, one of those whose name has been thrown in the mix, Mark Judge, has asserted that he wants no part in the deliberations.

He revealed in a letter sent this week to the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) that he will not be appearing at any hearing set to handle concerns about Ford’s story.

He explained:

‘I have no memory of this alleged incident… More to the point, I never saw Brett act in the manner Dr. Ford describes. I have no more information to provide the Committee and I do not wish to speak publicly regarding the incidents described in Dr. Ford’s letter.’

Senate Democrats had previously sought Judge’s testimony after Ford asserted that he’d been in the room at the time of Kavanaugh’s high school attempt to rape her. Ironically, Judge has written a book in which he’s revealed that he and a friend with the last name O’Kavanaugh had drinking problems — and Ford says the two of them were drunk at the time of the incident — but again, he’s insisted he won’t be testifying.

For the record, Senate Republicans pressed on with their planned hearing without confirming that Ford even wanted to testify herself, making their efforts seem to be a show.

Senate Democrats had previously sought Judge’s testimony as part of their broader push to hold Kavanaugh accountable for what he did all those years ago. They’ve been somewhat successful in those efforts so far, because the Senate Judiciary Committee’s vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation has been officially postponed at this point. With criticism from Republican Senators piling up — and the GOP only having a slim majority in the body to begin with — the delay eventually became pretty much inevitable.

In the meantime, flimsy Republican defenses are continuing to themselves pile up. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, for instance, derided the idea of incidents from 35 years ago coming back to haunt someone, although 35 years ago, he was 50. In other words, he was just spouting something off and definitely didn’t think that one through.

A supporter of Kavanaugh insisted on national television that maybe the attempted rape Ford has described was just “horseplay” — because of course they did.

Meanwhile, the nation’s sexual predator turned commander-in-chief Donald Trump has himself whined about the situation.

During a joint press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda, Trump told reporters:

‘I feel so badly for him that he’s going through this. This is not a man that deserves this.’

At least he didn’t dredge up the “she’s too ugly to be assaulted” “defense” that he’s used against some of the accusations he himself has faced.
