In a Monday conversation with Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh denied having attended the house party where he is alleged to have assaulted Christine Blasey Ford, leading Hatch to suggest that Ford must be “mixed up,”
..Believing that her identity would eventually leak, Ford then came forward as the letter’s author in a Sunday Washington Post article.
.. “I have never done anything like what the accuser describes — to her or to anyone,” Kavanaugh said in the statement. “Because this never happened, I had no idea who was making this accusation until she identified herself yesterday. I am willing to talk to the Senate Judiciary Committee in any way the committee deems appropriate to refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity.”
.. Hatch told CNN that he believes Kavanaugh’s denials and, when asked if he believed the accuser, suggested she may have mistaken him for someone else.
