Dem Senator Wrote FBI on New Kavanaugh Allegations — WashPost

As highlighted by The Daily Wire on Monday, Leland Ingham Keyser, the close friend of Brett Kavanaugh-accuser Christine Blasey Ford named as a witness to the now-Supreme Court justice's alleged attempted rape decades ago, not only denied being at such a gathering described by the accuser - she also did not believe Blasey Ford was the victim, according to reporting from The Federalist's Mollie Hemingway.

The New York Times found itself in hot-water over the weekend after publishing an explosive "bombshell" on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh; posting sections of a new book that contained unfounded allegations of sexual abuse during his time in college. That new allegation was included in an article, excerpting an upcoming book about Kavanaugh classmate Deborah Ramirez, who had claimed the future justice pulled down his trousers and thrust his penis at her at another time at a different Yale party.

The Times later claimed the key detail was not included in the story because it was uncovered during the investigation for the book from which the story was adapted, despite the fact significantly altering the weight of the allegations.

The once universally respected paper of record published a freakish opinion piece on a book by two of its reporters who investigated Kavanaugh's past, in light of the sexual assault allegations levied against him during his intensely contentious confirmation process.

According to the Times, Stier, who runs a nonprofit in Washington, D.C., "notified senators and the F.B.I. about this account, but the F.B.I. did not investigate and Mr. Stier has declined to discuss it publicly".

"The person with the most to lose and the least to gain for telling the truth about Kavanaugh may have been Leland Ingham Keyser, who put her commitment to the truth above her political preferences and even friendships."

Former Texas Representative Beto O'Rourke asserted in a tweeted, "We know he lied under oath".

Their comments followed similar ones from Julian Castro, a former USA housing secretary, on Saturday night. Pogrebin and Kelly also wrote the New York Times story presenting this claim. It wasn't immediately clear how the Justice Department could come to the justice's defence.

Senator Bernie Sanders didn't refer to impeachment by name in a tweet Sunday, but he said he would "support any appropriate constitutional mechanism" to hold Kavanaugh "accountable". In May, he attacked Trump's voters, saying he was "heartbroken" by how stupid they are.
