Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is providing calendars he kept in 1982 to the Senate Judiciary Committee to back up his denial of a sexual assault allegation against him, The New York Times is reporting.
Kavanuagh’s team admits the calendars do not disprove the alleged assault took place, but say they also do not corroborate the allegations of his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. Blasey claims Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and groped her when they were at a party in high school, and that she only escaped when his friend Mark Judge jumped on them.
People on Twitter were quick to drag the nominee and his team for thinking a calendar kept by a 17-year-old Kavanaugh would be a viable defense.
The Judiciary Committee has postponed a vote on whether to send Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the full Senate so it can hear from Blasey. The 51-year-old psychologist and professor from California has tentatively agreed to testify before the committee Thursday.
