Questions raised as fourth named witness to alleged Kavanaugh assault denies knowledge of party

On Saturday, news broke that Leland Keyser, a woman Christine Blasey Ford claimed was at the party where Judge Brett Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her, says she “does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present.”

The Washington Post said it had cited an email her lawyer sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The Post report further said: “In a brief interview at her home in Silver Spring, Keyser said that she did not recall the party, but that she was close friends with Ford and that she believes Ford’s allegation.”

But, Twitchy reported, that’s not what her attorney’s statement said.  At all.

What this means is that all four of the named “witnesses” to Ford’s alleged assault have now gone on record as denying the incident and the party where it allegedly took place.

Keyser, by the way, was married to Bob Beckel for about 10 years and is reportedly a “lifelong friend” of Ford’s.

Kimberley Strassel, a columnist for the Wall Street Journal, also noted:

Powerful, indeed.

Strassel also posted an 11-part thread about the alleged incident and the Post’s reporting of it:


Strassel is absolutely correct.  There’s a whole lot of explaining that needs to take place.

This whole incident is looking like an attempt to smear and frame Judge Kavanaugh by leftists with an axe to grind.  There needs to be an investigation and heads should roll if that turns out to be the case.
