All three men alleged to be at the high school party in the sexual assault allegations made against Brett Kavanaugh have now denied being there.
Another former classmate of the US Supreme Court nominee has denied attending the party where Christine Blasey Ford alleges a drunken Kavanaugh groped her.
In a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee, fellow Georgetown Prep student Patrick J. Smyth, denied attending the party described by Ford in her claim that the Supreme Court nominee sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers more than three decades ago.
Smyth graduated with Kavanaugh in 1983 from the all-boys school in North Bethesda, Maryland.
“I understand that I have been identified by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as the person she remembers as ‘PJ’ who supposedly was present at the party she described in her statements to the Washington Post,” Smyth said in the statement penned by Eric Bruce, who is representing him, to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the committee, according to CNN.
“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,” he said.
“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,” he added.
Mark Judge, another of Kavanaugh’s classmates whom Ford has said was at that house party in the 1980s has denied the incident happened. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations against him and even being at the party.
Smyth’s letter is expected to be sent to Grassley and Feinstein on Wednesday, according to CNN.
Despite Ford’s attorney Lisa Banks telling CNN her client is ready to testify before Congress about the allegations, the liberal California professor is now calling for a full FBI investigation before she will appear before the Senate Judicualry Committee.
