Mostly everyone agrees that every person who claims to be a victim of rape or sexual assault has a right to be heard and taken seriously. However, despite centuries of societal consensus in America, there has been recent controversy over whether sexual misconduct allegations should be blindly believed. It is my personal view that due process should exist both in a judiciary setting and as a principle, meaning the accused should be presumed innocent until proven guilty.
Although I have skepticism of Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations against Supreme Court justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh, I am not necessarily accusing her of lying. I am simply pointing to the lack of corroborating evidence and gaps in memory. Should an unsubstantiated allegation of any kind be enough to ruin someone’s opportunity for career advancement or their reputation? While I argue no, many Democratic Senators and leftist commentators appear to disagree.
Think for one minute, if Brett Kavanaugh was your brother, son, father, husband, boyfriend, friend, etc., would you want unsubstantiated allegations of sexual misconduct to ruin his career and reputation?
Below, I provide certain problems in the sexual misconduct allegations against Brett Kavanaugh.
Christine Blasey Ford:
- First, Brett Kavanaugh has undergone six FBI investigations. If the sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh are true, which would suggest that he is a serial sexual predator, why haven’t they been brought forward throughout any time of his judicial career?
- At the time of the alleged incident, Ford was 15 years old, meaning she was not old enough to drive herself to or home from the party. Conveniently, Ford does not remember how she came to or left the gathering.
- Also, according to the Ford’s therapist’s notes, there were four boys in the room at the time of her alleged sexual assault. However, now she claims only Mark Judge and Kavanaugh were in the room. She also never mentioned Kavanaugh’s name to her therapist.
- In addition, it is interesting how Ford’s parents and two siblings have been silent about the case and are absent from a letter of support sent by her relatives, most of whom are on her husband’s side of the family.
- Kavanaugh has calendars from the summer of 1982, the year in which the sexual assault allegedly took place. His calendars suggest that he was largely out-of-town throughout that summer.
- According to the Washington Post, Ford claims that she was upset President Trump won the 2016 election because Kavanaugh was listed as a Supreme Court pick. However, Kavanaugh was not added to President Trump’s list of possibilities until November 2017, one year later.
- In addition, Fox News reports that two men have come forward claiming that Ford is mistaking Mark Judge and Brett Kavanaugh for them. Judiciary Committee Republicans have announced that they have interviewed a man who believes that he, not Kavanaugh, had the incident with Christine Blasey Ford.
- Next, Julie Swetnick claims to be a victim of gang rape in which Brett Kavanaugh conspired. Again, there are not any witnesses publicly corroborating this allegation.
- Many people have questioned why Swetnick was attending high school parties with minors while she was a grown adult. Kavanaugh denies ever meeting Swetnick, who she claims met him in the early 1980s by his friend, Mark Judge.
- Also, why did Avenatti, Swetnick’s attorney, refuse to allow the New York Times to interview her?
- Additionally, there have not been any witnesses to corroborate Ramirez’s story, who alleges that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a college party, according to the New York Times.
- In fact, a former best friend of Ramirez claims to have no knowledge of the incident and believes it is very possible that her allegations are politically motivated, stating…
“This is a woman I was best friends with. We shared intimate details of our lives. And I was never told this story by her, or by anyone else. It never came up. I didn’t see it; I never heard of it happening.”
- Also, Ramirez contacted several of her classmates about the incident, admitting that she is unsure regarding whether Kavanaugh was the man who exposed himself to her.
- She also admits that there are gaps in her memory from that night due to the amount of alcohol she consumed.
Lastly, many supporters of Ford and other women who have made allegations against Kavanaugh have argued that they do not have any motivation to lie. However, that is just objectively not true. Both Ford and Ramirez are registered Democrats and are active in leftist causes. Overall, Kavanaugh’s fate should not be dependent on whether any of the allegations are perceived to be mostly credible, but whether there is substantial and corroborating evidence that undoubtedly ties Kavanaugh to any of the allegations.
