Rather than posting about the various bits of information that are popping up this week one by one, here are several that I have run across in the past couple of days. According to reports, the FBI investigation will be concluded today or tomorrow. Thank God.
On Tuesday an ex-boyfriend of Blasey Ford, in a letter, directly contradicted her testimony under oath last week that she had never helped anyone prepare for a polygraph examination.
In addition, the “boyfriend” mentions Ford’s “life-long best friend” Monica McLean as the person Ms Blasey-Ford coached in preparation for a polygraph exam, using her background in psychology. According to news outlets, this was while McLean was interviewing for jobs with the FBI and the US Attorney’s Office. McLean worked for the DOJ/FBI for 24 years, leaving in 2016. For some of that time, she was based in California, where Dr. Ford lives. McLean now works for an independent consultant, and is based in Washington DC. She apparently lives in Rehoboth Beach, DE – the place that Dr. Ford testified she was visiting while she was writing her letter to Senator Feinstein. Is McLean her “beach friends”?Snippet(s) Two:
Yesterday, a letter was sent to the judiciary committee about Julie Swetnick by a man who dated her long ago. Note that he is a Democrat, and that this website is indeed that of the Judiciary Committee. Complete letter can be found here:
Mr. Ketterer explains how he met Julie Swetnick, describes how he dated her for a time, and why he terminated their relationship – namely her sexual preferences and how she liked to have sex with several men at the same time. He says he had not engaged in sex with Swetnick, but was definitely worried about AIDS after she disclosed her sexual history.
In 1996 Mr. Ketterer ran for Congress as a Democrat in the state of Maryland, and attempted to contact Swetnick for help in political campaign. He talked with her father, who advised him that he wouldn’t want her working on his campaign, as she had psychological problems.
Another of Ms Swetnick’s former boyfriends said that she threatened him and his family. Richard Vinneccy said:
“Right after I broke up with her, she basically called me many times and at one point she basically said, ‘You will never, ever see your unborn child alive,'” Vinneccy told Fox News host Laura Ingraham on “The Ingraham Angle.” Vinneccy recalled that Swetnick told him at the time, ‘I’m just going to go over there and kill you guys.'”Snippet(s) Three:
Several (and probably more) additional allegations have been made against Judge Kavanaugh. An anonymous letter was sent to Senator Kamala Harris from a woman who purportedly lives in Oceanside, CA. Judge Kavanaugh was questioned about the alleged incident, and denied it outright. Here is the transcript of the interview:
The interview first addresses the Swetnick story, then the anonymous letter mentioned here. The letter writer alleges that she was forcibly raped by Brett Kavanaugh and a friend of his (several times each) in a car while they were driving her home from a party. She also claims forced oral sex by Kavanaugh.
The transcript of the interview also says that there had been six allegations IN ADDITION to the one by Dr. Ford, against Judge Kavanaugh.
One allegation was made by a Colorado woman. She said that she saw Judge Kavanaugh physically assault a woman in 1998 in Washington, DC while intoxicated.
Another allegation, since recanted by the accuser, a Rhode Island resident allegedly told Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted a woman the resident described as a “close acquaintance” in August 1985. That alleged incident also occurred while Kavanaugh was intoxicated, the report said.
