Republicans are complaining about the timing of the release of the news that Trump’s SCOTUS nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, was being accused of sexual assault, but they’ve never explained the timing of those 65 letters they received from women who say Kavanaugh was a perfect gentleman in school even though they didn’t attend the school he did (it’s an all-boys school) within just a few short hours of Ronan Farrow’s expose being published.

As it turns out, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has friends of her own from her high school days who she did actually go to school with, and all of them are vouching for her character. 24 women from the┬áHolton-Arms School, along with many more colleagues and friends during Dr. Blasey’s years there wrote letters to Congress.

According to CNN:

‘The letter says the women are writing to attest to the “honesty, integrity, and intelligence” of Ford, who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her decades ago, and to support Ford “bringing this matter forward.”
‘The women write that her decision to share her experience now is “not a partisan act” but an “act of civic duty.”‘

The strategy of using letters from women who Kavanaugh did not allegedly attempt to rape in high school was always a bad one, but it seems to have begun blowing up in the GOP’s faces.

Additionally, the only witness to the alleged incident, Kavanaugh’s friend Mark Judge, who is accused of watching the attack and turning up music to cover Dr. Blasey’s screams, announced on Tuesday that he is declining to testify on Kavanaugh’s behalf, saying “I have no more information to offer the committee and I do not wish to speak publicly regarding the incidents.”

For his part, Kavanaugh has offered a full-throated denial of the claims.
