Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said Monday that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh denies attending an early 1980s party at the center of a sexual assault allegation against him, reports The Hill.
Hatch told reporters that Kavanaugh denied being at the party during a phone call the two men had on Monday afternoon. Hatch added that he believed Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, is “mixed up.”
“The judge who I know very very well is an honest man, said this didn’t happen,” Hatch said, adding that there is “some question” about if Ford was “mixed up.”
A reporter asked if the judge could have been so drunk that he didn’t remember.
“He said that’s not true. …He said this did not happen and he’s naturally very upset about it,” Hatch told reporters.
Hatch said he thought she “was mistaken” and he is getting lambasted for saying that. Jennifer Rubin, the fake WaPo Republican, said he should be “muzzled”. Progressive Zelina Maxwell said, “he’s not firing on all cylinders” since she’s an ageist. Singer-songwriter Ricky Davila called Hatch a “skeleton” and Kavanaugh “corrupt”. And the list goes on. It’s only about hate. No one listens or tries to understand.
The fact is the accuser can’t remember when or where the party was. It’s very possible she is “mistaken”.
It’s absurd to come up with an accusation 36 years after the fact, have no specific information, and then claim trauma.

TWO EX-GIRLFRIENDS STAND UP FOR HIM
Two women who dated the judge, one in high school, and one in college said he is nothing like the person the accuser described. Both said he is kind, thoughtful, and a gentleman.
Now there are statements from two of Kavanaugh’s ex-girlfriends. Both were on the group letter last week in support of him. pic.twitter.com/RSz2VwucwS

CANDACE OWENS EXPRESSED THE VIEWS OF MANY
Brett Kavanaugh should be confirmed IMMEDIATELY.
It is time for Americans to send a STRONG message to the anarchist Democrats that we will no longer tolerate their disgusting, corrupt, low-bar antics.
The #MeTooWitchhunt needs to come to an END once and for all.

MITCH MCCONNELL ASKED THE LOGICAL QUESTIONS
.@SenateMajLdr: “[Democrats] did not raise it in the closed session, the proper forum where such an allegation could have been addressed with discretion and sensitivity. They did not raise it in the 1,000+ follow up questions that senators sent to Judge Kavanaugh in writing.” pic.twitter.com/G5yFk5x6wQ

In a humorous note, in order to compete with Judge Kavanaugh’s 65 women supporters, a letter was sent to the accuser’s school alumni and 200 women signed it. But most don’t even know who she is. Julia Louis-Dreyfus said she signed it because she graduated in ’79.
On the other hand, hundreds of women have come forward on Brett Kavanaugh’s behalf and they are women who knew him. Kellyanne Conway writes on Twitter, “Hundreds of women have come forward to speak about Judge Kavanaugh’s character and integrity: those who knew him in high school, college, law school, the Bush White House, his law clerks, moms of girls he coaches in youth basketball. This matters.”
As for the rest of the Democrats in Congress, they won’t meet with Judge Kavanaugh to hear his side. They are demanding an FBI probe.
UPDATE MONDAY EVENING: THE HEARING HAS BEEN DELAYED AND BOTH JUDGE KAVANAUGH AND CHRISTINE BLASEY WILL APPEAR BEFORE THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE ON MONDAY.
