Democrats are still furious at Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and will never get over the fact that he defeated an all-out smear campaign from radical liberals and now sits on the highest court in the land.
While the Left did their best to ruin his career with baseless allegations, a new book reveals that Kavanaugh’s team had some shocking allegations about Christine Blasey Ford that they decided not to use at the time.
Ford was brought out of nowhere last October by liberals and testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her almost four decades ago.
An excerpt from the book, “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court,” which was obtained by The Daily Caller, details how Ford was not as innocent as she claimed to be.
Authors Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino say anonymous peers accused Ford of having a drinking problem, getting intoxicated, and accosting boys on a regular basis when she, Kavanaugh, and others attended the Holton-Arms School in 1982.
The allegations are significant because Ford accused Kavanaugh of groping her during a 1982 house party in Maryland when they were high school students.
But other peers apparently say she is lying and has a much darker past than many realized.
“Female classmates and friends at area schools recalled a heavy drinker who was much more aggressive with boys than they were,” Hemingway and Severino write of Ford.
“‘If she only had one beer’ on the night of the alleged assault, a high school friend said, ‘then it must have been early in the evening.’ Her contemporaries all reported the same nickname for Ford, a riff on her maiden name and a sexual act,” they added.
“They also debated whether her behavior in high school could be attributed to the trauma of a sexual assault,” the authors added. “If it could, one of them said, then the assault must have happened in seventh grade.”
Another excerpt in the book also details how First Lady Melania Trump told President Donald Trump last year that she did not believe Ford’s allegations against Kavanaugh.
The first lady thought Ford was lying when she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last October.
“You know that woman is lying, don’t you?” Melania Trump told President Trump.
The book uses the first lady as an example of how “millions of other women and men” didn’t believe Ford and her shoddy allegations.
“Her credibility, if anything, was viewed as stronger because of her lapses in memory and because the odder parts to the story, such as her description of how she came to tell her husband about the assault,” the authors regarding how Blasey Ford’s testimony was perceived. “Despite the holes in her story, the media clung to these details.”
Ford alleged that Kavanaugh groped her at a high school pool party around 1982.
When grilled and pressed for any evidence to support her claims, Ford couldn’t find anyone or anything to substantiate her shoddy allegations.
After delaying his confirmation hearing a week to appease Democratic lawmakers, the FBI conducted a supplemental background check at the time and found that there was no support for the allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh.
The U.S. Senate confirmed Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court by a vote tally of 50-48.
Kavanaugh was able to survive an all-out smear campaign and has a lifetime appointment on the nation’s highest court.
