US: Blasey-Ford’s testimony not helped by Leland Keyser still insisting she never met Brett Kavanaugh, …….


Democrat initiated farce from beginning to end…


Leland Keyser’s New Letter Tells Us Nothing New

It doesn’t matter one iota what Keyser thinks about her friend’s veracity, any more than it does for the 65 character witnesses for Kavanaugh. What does matter is her insistence that she did not meet Brett Kavanaugh, which clearly contradicts Blasey-Ford’s testimony. Period.


Late last night, an attorney for Leland Keyser sent a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual-assault allegation against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. In the letter, he reiterated Keyser’s initial statement, made under penalty of felony, in which she said she has never met Kavanaugh and has no recollection that the party Ford describes ever occurred.

This new letter, however, has been cast as Keyser walking back her initial refutation of Ford’s story. In fact, the letter itself states, “Ms. Keyser does not refute Dr. Ford’s account, and she has already told the press that she believes Dr. Ford’s account.”


CNN, as just one example, quickly glommed onto this line, reporting that Keyser “does not refute the veracity of the allegation.” But this assertion, whether in Keyser’s letter or in the breathless media coverage of it, makes no sense whatsoever.


Keyser has now twice stated that she never attended the party Ford describes. Whether or not she believes her friend is irrelevant; her testimony directly contradicts Ford’s claim.
