I have no idea who is telling the truth in the drama created in the she says he says event that occurred over thirty years ago. In fact I’m hardly following this mess but I do know this.
How in the hell can the FBI investigate an event that happened thirty years ago when both were in high school, one 15 and the other 17 that took place over the course of a few minutes in a bedroom? That is if any of this did take place in a bedroom behind closed doors.
Or maybe they are both telling the truth and are both being honest according to how they each remember the incident.
What I Believe
The best article I have read that is sorta-kinda non objective was written by Bret Stephens of the NewYork Times. I said sorta-kinda because of the picture over his article.
I do know this. Brett Kavanaugh has not been accused by any other women since the 30 years of the alleged incident of inappropriate conduct.
I also know the names of the four people Ford has provided does not corroborate her statements. They are not saying it didn’t happen but they also say they have no recollection of anything like what she said taking place.
There are other discrepancies such at whose house this took place at and the time frame. Now this is not to say her version of events didn’t happen the way she said they did.
The problem is what if Brett Kavanaugh did do these things and the only sole evidence was from one person? Something like this would never hold up in court.
How Can Brett Kavanaugh Defend Himself?
Now imagine if he really is innocent. How can he defend himself from something like this when it’s impossible to prove his version? What bothers me is when a woman makes a claim such as this it’s considered gospel and if the accused tries to defend himself he is in a no win situation.
Anything he says will be considered an attack on the accuser, the victim.
When a situation such as this happens, we have two distinct thought processes divided by gender. Women and men can’t think rational and feel mistrust towards each other.
Trump of course isn’t helping. He is a buffoon and hasn’t helped the situation with his crude talk.
Two last thoughts which may have some relevance.
The Women’s March
When Brett Kavanaugh was announced as a supreme court nominee The Women’s March group put out a statement condemning the nomination only problem is they sent out the statement with XX instead of Brett Kavanaugh.
This group accidentally sent out the template they had made out before they knew who was going to be nominated. The Women’s March group had already opposed whoever Trump decided to nominate beforehand.
Groups that engage in this type of behavior would believe any accusation against Kavanaugh no matter the circumstances.
The last thought is this last minute accusation against Kavanaugh mirrors what the democrats claim the FBI did against Hillary in regards to her emails right before the election.
Who is telling the truth? No idea but there is no way a persons career should be destroyed with absolutely no evidence except for one persons word.
With out evidence the accused has to be given the benefit of the doubt. That’s just how justice system works. It’s just that simple. Updated post on why Kavanaugh prevailed.
