Strikeout: Blasey-Ford’s Fourth and Final Witness Disavows Assault Story, Senate Hearing Set Thursday
OH-for-Four: Leland Ingaham-Keyser, witness number four in Chrstine Blasey-Ford’s sexual assault claim against Brett Kavanaugh denies any knowledge of any party such as the one where Blasey-Ford claims the incident took place. Keyser was a Blasey-Ford classmate at exclusive Holton Arms Academy in Bethesda, Maryland.
While sources say the haggling of final terms and details continues on Capitol Hill, it appears that Christine Blasey-Ford will indeed testify before a Senate Committee, this Thursday, (9/27) presumably relating details of the sexual assault allegations she has leveled against Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. After days of delays and statements batted back and forth through her attorney containing a tone with enough ladled condescension to make Paris Hilton blush, sources say Blasey-Ford has agreed, at least tentatively to testify under oath regarding her claims, that Kavanaugh pulled her into an upstairs bedroom during a small high school party in 1982, pinned her to a bed momentarily and attempted to remove her bikini swimsuit, before letting her leave the room. Blasey-Ford has said regarding the alleged roughness of the incident, “I felt as though they might inadvertently kill me.”
Meantime, Blasey-Ford’s Everest-sized credibility problems continue to mount as one by one, a total of four people she has claimed witnessed or had knowledge of the alleged attack (including Kavanaugh) have denied or repudiated her claims, including one who says she has never met and does not know Kavanaugh and was not at the party where the incident is alleged to have taken place. That person, the fourth and final individual mentioned in Blasey-Ford’s by now infamous letter (in Dianne Feinstein’s possession) is Leland Ingaham-Keyser, a 1984 classmate of Blasey-Ford’s (and former wife of Democrat operative and media personality, Bob Beckel) at exclusive Holton Arms preparatory school in Bethesda, Maryland issued a statement Saturday night denying any knowledge of the incident and stating emphatically that she does not even know Brett Kavanaugh.
“Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford,” Howard J. Walsh, lawyer for Leland-Ingaham-Keyser
“Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford,” lawyer Howard J. Walsh said in a statement sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Three other people mentioned in Blasey-Ford’s letter, PJ Smyth, Mark Judge, and or course, Brett Kavanaugh, have already denied any recollection of attending such a party. Smyth issued a lengthy statement not only disavowing knowledge of the alleged party in question but defending Brett Kavaugh’s character as a young man who treated women with kindness and respect.
Wrote Smyth in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee:
“I understand that I have been identified by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as the person she remembers as ‘P.J.’ who supposedly was present at the party she described in her statements to the Washington Post.”
“I am issuing this statement today to make it clear to all involved that I have no knowledge of the party in question; nor do I have any knowledge of the allegations of improper conduct she has leveled against Brett Kavanaugh.”
“Personally speaking, I have known Brett Kavanaugh since high school and I know him to be a person of great integrity, a great friend, and I have never witnessed any improper conduct by Brett Kavanaugh towards women.
“To safeguard my own privacy and anonymity, I respectfully request that the Committee accept this statement in response to any inquiry the Committee may have.”
One additional classmate who attempted to buttress Blasey-Ford’s claims came out on social media alleging that the incident had been the talk of the school. He quickly retracted the post after it was pointed out that his recounting placed the event in the late fall of 1982, while Blasey-Ford claims it happened mid-summer.
Dr. Blasey-Ford, a Palo Alto University professor of psychology employed by a pharmaceutical company that manufactures abortifacient drugs similar to RU-486, carries a steamer trunk full of blatant political allegiances that intelligent observers say make it patently obvious that he 11th hour allegation against Kavanaugh about an event 36 years ago, only remembered five years ago and well outside the statute of limitations are obvious employ of Kabuki theatre, media circus pantomime meant only to stall and ultimately destroy Kavanaugh’s chances of confirmation by a Republican controlled U.S. Senate.
Blasey-Ford’s agreement to testify was only reached after an hour long negotiation this morning (Sunday 9/23) in which it was still not resolved as to whether GOP lawmakers would agree to employ an outside female lawyer to handling questioning on Thursday, per Blasey-Ford’s demands. Republicans had initially set a deadline of Monday for any additional testimony by Blasey-Ford or anyone else, but later reneged on that stance, (much to the chagrin of seething Republican and Trump populists,) with Senator Chuck Grassley leading the charge to delay a confirmation vote to allow Blasey-Ford to speak, fulfilling the worst opinions of critics who see Blasey’s timing, methodology, avoidance of the intial Kavanaugh Senate Judiciary Committee hearings and the rattletrap interference by Democrat Senator Feinstein as nothing more than an elaborate stall tactic and media circus in an effort to scuttle Kavanaugh’s confirmation altogether before the fall recess, allowing Democrats
Meanwhile, sources indicate Brett Kavanaugh will use a calendar defense, citing personal calendars from the summer of 1982 that make no mention or description of any kind of party in the timeframe delineated by Blasey-Ford.
