So, in case you’ve been living under a freaking rock lately, President Donald Trump’s top pick for SCOTUS is going up against a smear job.
An anonymous letter accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct has not only recently been leaked to some official channels but as it turns out, two high ranking officials have been in possession of it for months… namely Democratic Rep. Anna Eshoo of California. Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California
Eventually, Feinstein forwarded this “anonymous letter” to the FBI though it did not result in a criminal inquiry. The FBI did, however, provide the information to the White House for placement in Kavanaugh’s background check file, USA Today reported.
“I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation,” Kavanaugh said of the allegations. “I did not do this back in high school or at any time.” And since then, many people from his past has come out to defend him including one who is supposedly named in the letter itself…
As reported by The Daily Caller:
A former classmate of Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s is vehemently denying allegations that the Supreme Court nominee attempted to force himself onto a young woman during a party in high school.
Mark Judge, who attended Maryland’s Georgetown Preparatory School with Kavanaugh in the 1980s, told The Weekly Standard on Friday that the assault allegations were “just absolutely nuts.”
“I never saw Brett act that way,” Judge said.
Details of the alleged assault were first reported Friday morning by the New Yorker, which published the account of an unnamed woman who said Kavanaugh and a male classmate accosted her at a party. The woman alleged that Kavanaugh held her down and covered her mouth while the classmate turned up music in the room to conceal the sound of her protests.
The New Yorker story did not identify the classmate by name, but Judge confirmed to The Weekly Standard that he was the Kavanaugh associate the accuser named. Judge said he had no idea he was named in the allegation until the New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow interviewed him about it.
“[Ronan Farrow] said: As you know, you’re named in the letter. And I did not know,” he told the Weekly Standard.
