Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday to try to reconstruct three-decade-old events. Some questions for Kavanaugh, Ford — and the committee:
You said on Fox News that there was never a time that you drank so much that you couldn’t remember what happened the night before. But in testimony to us here today, you have admitted to excessive drinking. Be specific about how much you drank in high school and college, and how impaired your judgment may have been.
Did you aid your friend Ed Whelan in implicating another classmate as Ford’s possible assaulter? Did you know anything whatsoever about that theory at any point before Whelan went public on Twitter?
Two other women have since come forward with claims of sexual misconduct. Is this a vast conspiracy?
How do you explain the fact that three men and one woman, a longtime friend of yours, have no recollection of the party you describe?
In your letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, you said four people were at the party besides you. You and your attorney later said four boys and two girls were there. Explains the discrepancy.
For Republicans on the Committee:
Kavanaugh friend Mark Judge was allegedly in the room with him; he also appears on Kavanaugh’s calendar and in the sworn statement of another accuser. Why was he not called to testify under oath?
In light of multiple allegations, why not re-open an FBI background check?
