New report on 'chatter at school' appears to support allegation against Kavanaugh

The evidence on the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford continues to dribble out. Now there is a letter by a fellow student at the school attended by Ford reporting generally on the drinking culture but more specifically on the “chatter” the morning after the incident reported by Ford. Roll Call: Kavanaugh Accuser’s Schoolmate Says Assault Was Chatter at School Afterward writes AZBlueMeanie at Blog for Arizona.

The essence of the story is this.

Roll Call reports today that Dr. Blasey’s sexual assault was “chatter” among her classmates contemporaneously around the time that it occurred. Someone at that party must have saw something, and the White House by refusing to request the FBI to conduct a follow-up background investigation is actively engaged in a coverup.

Here is more from the Roll Call report: Kavanaugh Accuser’s Schoolmate Says Assault Was Chatter at School Afterward] Cristina King Miranda went to all-girls prep school with Christine Blasey Ford.

“Christine Blasey Ford was a year or so behind me, I remember her,” wrote Cristina King Miranda [on Facebook], who graduated a year ahead of Ford at Holton-Arms School in Bethesda, Maryland. Holton-Arms is an all-girls school whose students frequently socialized with Kavanaugh’s all-male alma mater, Georgetown Prep.

“This incident did happen,” Miranda wrote. “Many of us heard about it in school and Christine’s recollection should be more than enough for us to truly, deeply know that the accusation is true.”

Here’s a tweet with a full copy of the letter.

But the White House, in refusing to order additional investigation by the FBI, and abetted by the recalcitrant Sen. Grassley, is covering up. See this one, also by AZBlueMeanie on the so-called hearing scheduled for Monday, A sham hearing and a denial of due process.

To cut right to it, after reporting from several sources, AZBlueMeanie concludes:

This is what GOP authoritarianism looks like: sham hearings, denial of due process, and right-wing thuggery from Trump’s white nationalist “deplorables.”
