The woman that Christine Ford suggests is her good friend still refused to back her story when interviewed by the FBI over the weekend. She says she doesn’t know Kavanaugh and has never seen him at a party where she and Ford were attending:
WASHINGTON TIMES – Leland Keyser, the high school friend Christine Blasey Ford counted on to corroborate her sexual assault charges, has told the FBI she has no knowledge of the supposed 1982 party or the accused, Brett Kavanaugh.
Howard J. Walsh III, her attorney, told The Washington Times that she met with the FBI on Saturday.
Asked if she had repeated the same two statements she provided the Senate Judiciary Committee, the lawyer answered, “yes.”
Before the FBI interview, Mr. Walsh submitted two statements to the Senate committee, both saying the same thing.
“Simply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford,” Mr. Walsh said.
After Mr. Trump ordered an FBI investigation last Friday, Mr. Walsh submitted a reaffirming statement to the committee.
“Ms. Keyser asked that I communicate to the Committee her willingness to cooperate fully with the FBI’s supplemental investigation of Dr. Christine Ford’s allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh,” Mr. Walsh said. “However, as my client has already made clear, she does not know Judge Kavanaugh and has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.”
All told, she has now provided the same account three times.
Not only does she refuse to corroborate Ford’s story, she was very much willing to tell this to the FBI.
Tony Shaffer, who you may have seen on Fox News, tweeted out that Keyser’s lawyer is a “straight shooter” and that he believes this is very damaging to Ford’s testimony:
I personally know the attorney who represents Ms Keyser – and he is a straight shooter. This is very damaging to Ms Ford's account – her own best friend of that early 80s period doesn't know Kavanaugh and has no knowledge of any "party" as Ford claimed:https://t.co/s76HONroLH

Of course he’s right. This is HUGE. But the biased MSM still refuses to give it much play, if any, as Scarborough suggested this morning.
