(National Sentinel)Â Set-up: The confluence of politics and hatred for POTUS Donald Trump continues to manifest itself in many ways, up to and including the suborning of perjury by a former FBI agent, apparently.
The Wall Street Journal reported Friday that a long-time friend of Christine Blasey Ford, the first woman to accuse Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual abuseÂ dating back 35-plus years, was pressured into changing her initial statement to the Feds and the Senate Judiciary Committee about not remembering the incident:
A friend of Christine Blasey FordÂ told FBI investigatorsÂ that she felt pressured by Dr. Fordâ€™s allies to revisit her initial statement that she knew nothing about an alleged sexual assault by a teenage Brett Kavanaugh, which she later updated to say that she believed but couldnâ€™t corroborate Dr. Fordâ€™s account, according to people familiar with the matter.
This is a paragraph of content.
Leland Keyser, who Dr. Ford has said was present at the gathering where she was allegedly assaulted in the 1980s, told investigators that Monica McLean, a retired Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and a friend of Dr. Fordâ€™s, had urged her to clarify her statement, the people said.
The statement to the FBI offers a glimpse into how Dr. Fordâ€™s allies were working behind the scenes to lobby old classmates to bolster their versions of the alleged incident, as were Judge Kavanaughâ€™s.
McLeanâ€™s lawyer, David Laufman, said in a statement: â€œAny notion or claim that Ms. McLean pressured Leland Keyser to alter Ms. Keyserâ€™s account of what she recalled concerning the alleged incident between Dr. Ford and Brett Kavanaugh is absolutely false.â€
Really? Then why does she have a lawyer, Mr.Â Laufman? In fact, why is the first thing everyone involved in accusing Judge Kavanaugh of something is to lawyer up?
Kavanaugh, in a Wall Street Journal op-ed Thursday, said he had been â€œsubjected to wrongful and sometimes vicious allegationsâ€ and that his youth had been â€œridiculously distorted.â€
And let’s also remember the FBI has revisitedÂ all of this — including text messages between McLean and Keyser — andÂ found no corroborating evidence to support the allegations against Kavanaugh.
There is no reason not to confirm him. The allegations are Democrat-driven and anyone with a functional brain stem knows that.
