Maryland authorities ‘looking at’ new sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh

On Monday, the Montgomery County Sentinel reported that local investigators are aware of a potential second sexual assault complaint against Judge Brett Kavanaugh and are “looking at” the allegations which supposedly took place during his senior year in high school.

It’s not known if the woman involved is the same one mentioned by Michael Avenatti, the attorney known as the “creepy porn lawyer” for his association with Stormy Daniels.

“We are prepared to investigate if the victim wants to report to us, and we can determine it occurred in the county,” said Montgomery County Police Chief Tom Manger.

According to The Sentinel:

One issue police will have to determine is whether the alleged assault described by Ford occurred in Chevy Chase, Maryland or in Washington D.C. “If it is in D.C. we would not have jurisdiction,” Manger said.

Police investigators, speaking on background, said Ford’s accusations – occurring approximately 36 years ago presented other difficulties to investigators. “There is no forensic evidence, there is a question of where it occurred and when and who was around. But we will do what we can if we are called upon to do it.”

Manger agreed and said that any investigation would have to respect the victim. “Some sexual assault victims do not want police involvement. We respect that. Typically, if we are aware of a case and the victim does not want to involve us, the hospital will collect the physical evidence and turn it over to us for safekeeping in case the victim ever changes their mind about prosecution.”

The Sentinel said investigators they spoke to were “particularly interested in the semi-autobiographical books written by Judge about his time at Georgetown Prep and Kavanaugh’s involvement in some of the events described in the book” even though they were originally believed to be exaggerated.

Judge — along with the others named by Ford — denied the allegations.

A somewhat contradictory report, published by the Washington Examiner, says local police aren’t looking into the allegations after all.

“I have spoken with my chief of detectives, and neither of us have any knowledge of anyone coming forward to us to report any allegations involving Judge Kavanaugh,” said police Chief J. Thomas Manger in an email.

According to the Examiner:

The Montgomery County Sentinel reported Monday that “Montgomery County investigators” were “looking at” a ” potential second sexual assault complaint” dating from Kavanaugh’s senior year the Georgetown Prep high school “after an anonymous witness came forward this weekend.”

The local publication did not identify the “investigators” as police, but ordinarily police would investigate an alleged crime before a decision on whether to prosecute.

The Montgomery County Sentinel reported that the allegation “would potentially bring the number to four women accusing Kavanaugh of wrongdoing.”

So, which report is more accurate?

If all this sounds familiar, it should.  It’s very similar to the strategy used to defeat Judge Roy Moore, who ran for the U.S. Senate.
