Kavanaugh accuser won’t testify Monday but open to doing so later next week

Whelan’s advised “Kavanaugh’s confirmation effort…is close friends with both Kavanaugh and Leonard Leo (Federalist Society)…who has been helping to spearhead the nomination.

Kavanaugh and his allies have been privately discussing a defense…would raise doubts that the attacker wasKavanaugh”(WaPo)

“Amid the maneuvering, the nomination was roiled further late Thursday by incendiary tweets from a prominent Kavanaugh friend and supporter who publicly identified another high school classmate of Kavanaugh’s as Ford’s possible attacker.

Ed Whelan, a former clerk to the late justice Antonin Scalia and president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, pointed to floor plans, online photographs and other information to suggest a location for the house party in suburban Maryland that Ford described. He also named and posted photographs of the classmate he suggested could be responsible.”
