You already know that the NYT had to issue a correction on their Kavanaugh story.
They had neglected to inform their readers that the alleged victim in their story can’t remember any such incident ever happening.
Now, it turns out there is another major conflict in the story.
They claim that seven people can corroborate Deborah Ramirez’s account of her alleged encounter with Kavanaugh. But as it turns out, not one of the seven can actually corroborate her account, 8 if you include Ramirez herself.
You may not remember but during the Kavanaugh hearing, when Ramirez entered the scene, she said herself that she didn’t know for a fact that Kavanaugh did anything.
“At least seven people, including Ms. Ramirez’s mother, heard about the Yale incident long before Mr. Kavanaugh was a federal judge,” they breathlessly report.
“Two of those people were classmates who learned of it just days after the party occurred, suggesting that it was discussed among students at the time.”
This is total and complete bullshit. As you will see below, to begin with, Ms. Ramirez’s mother did not hear about “the Yale incident,” and to say she did is simply false.
Not only was Ramirez drunk that night, for 35 years she couldn’t remember who exposed himself to her. Naturally, that all changed after 1) Kavanaugh was prepared to ascend to the Supreme Court and 2) she spent six days with her attorney, a former Democrat politician, who “helped her” to recall it was Kavanaugh.
What’s more, when the New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow spoke to five of Ramirez’s former classmates, including Ramirez’s best friend at the time, they all said Kavanaugh did no such thing. They all stuck up for Kavanaugh!
The Washington Examiner’s Byron York lays it all out in detail, but here’s the Cliff Notes’ version:
1) Deborah Ramirez’s mother claims her daughter told her three years after the alleged incident that “Something happened at Yale.”
That’s it. Nothing else. Just “Something happened at Yale.”
No name. No specifics. Just “Something happened at Yale.”
The idea that anyone who identifies as a “journalist” would use this as confirmation of anything is nothing less than obscene.
2) Kenneth Apold roomed with Kavanaugh and claims two other people told him what Kavanaugh did to Ramirez. Apold doesn’t remember who those two other students are.
Despite the fact that a number of billion-dollar media corporations are using their limitless resources to destroy Kavanaugh, not one can find these two students … or any witness to the incident.
3) Michael Wetstone, a former Kavanaugh classmate, claims Kenneth Apold told him this secondhand information (that no one can verify) sometime in 1989 or 1990 — which makes Wetstone a third-hand “witness.”
4) Richard Oh, another Kavanaugh classmate, says he overheard a “female student emotionally describing making contact with a fake penis” that ended up being real.
Oh’s story completely contradicts the alleged victim, who says she didn’t tell anyone about this at the time.
5) Someone anonymous says they heard something about the incident in the 1990s. That’s it. No other information is given. Just that they heard something.
6) Chad Ludington vaguely remember hearing about something that happened to Ramirez.
7) James Roche vaguely remembers hearing about something that happened to Ramirez.
Then there were none. I guess some people did something but we don’t know what or by whom.
