Brett Kavanaugh’s attorney, Beth Wilkinson, dropped a shocker Wednesday morning during an interview on CBS News, saying lawyers for accuser Christine Blaney Ford have not turned over the results of her lie detector test or her therapist’s notes to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
CBS anchor Nora O’Donnell asked if the evidence was mounting against Kavanaugh after citing sworn affidavits turned over to the committee by Ford’s lawyers from her husband and three family friends who claim Ford told them she was assaulted by a federal judge — Kavanaugh was named by her husband and the coach of their son’s baseball team.
“No, I wouldn’t say that,” Wilkinson replied. “As you know those are statements that were made relatively recently and sadly this is an allegation from almost 36 years ago. And there was at the time no report which is understandable.”
According to the affidavits, Ford mentioned the incident in 2012, 2013, 2016 and 2017, according to the Associated Press.
“[T]he first time these allegations came to light as far as we know from reading the reports in the media, Dr. Ford told her therapist and told her husband,” the attorney said.
“They announced that there were notes and there was a lie detector test,” Wilkinson continued. “But as I understand it they did not turn any of those over to the Senate committee even though they were requested. So, the information that would have shown what she said the very first time when she revealed these allegations have not been turned over to the Senate.”
As seen on Twitter, it was telling that O’Donnell spoke about “evidence mounting” against Kavanaugh, given the affidavits are a recent development and four people Ford placed at the high school party where the alleged sexually assault took place have refuted her claim.
How about that question, is the evidence mounting? Unreal.

Here’s a sampling of other reactions from skeptical social media users who’ve grown weary of the cutthroat gamesmanship on display in the Democrat Party’s desperate attempt to prevent Kavanaugh from being seated on the high court:
Not surprised that the Democrats have been able to dig up a few diehard supporters who are willing to perjure themselves “for the cause”, especially since people frequently commit perjury before Congress without consequences anyway.

I think that’s the reason they add the four new witnesses to the story because they can’t prove the notes and the therapist, or they want to alter the story ? This accusation is so doubtful. Confirm Kavanaugh now.

Because @TheDemocrats are just delaying.

Why provide anything but a vague recount that no one corroborate! @SenFeinstein @SenateDems would rather shout and point fingers, than provide facts! Sorry to be callous but really! This whole process has been a huge embarrassment!
