In a letter from the pen of his lawyer, Eric, Bruce, and Senate judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and sen Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., Patrick Smyth said that he has no knowledge of the party in question, nor any knowledge of the “allegations of impropriety” , Ford against Kavanaugh.
“I understand that I have, were from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as the person that she remembers, as ‘PJ’, who allegedly was present at the party, which they described in their statements to the Washington Post,” Smyth, graduated in the same year, as Kavanaugh from Georgetown Prep in North Bethesda, Maryland, said in the letter, which was obtained by CNN. “I am issuing this statement today to Kavanaugh clear for all involved that I has leveled no knowledge of the party in question, nor do I have knowledge of the allegations of inappropriate behaviour by you against the Board.”

Smyth is spoken of in the cited letter: “Personally, I’ve known Brett Kavanaugh since high school and I know that he was a man of great integrity, a great friend, and I never any improper behavior of Brett Kavanaugh is experienced against women.”
A spokesman for Grassley confirmed to Fox News that lawmakers had received the letter, but would not on their content.
Ford, a research psychologist at the Palo Alto University in California, came forward over the weekend claiming that Kavanaugh pinned her on a bed and tried to adjust their clothing during a high school party in Maryland in the 1980s. Kavanaugh denies the allegations, the Statute of limitations under Maryland law.
The accusations thrown, the once formulaic Supreme Court confirmation process into a tailspin, as lawmakers on both sides of the aisle trying to figure out how to move forward to pick up with the hearings for President trump.
Lawyers for Ford to say that before she testifies on Capitol Hill, you want to investigate the FBI, your accusations. But Grassley says the FBI’s investigation would have no impact on Ford’s statement as “there is no reason for further delay.” Other Republicans are suggesting that Ford only have this one opportunity to testify.
A former classmate of Ford also came forward to say on Wednesday that she remembers hearing about the alleged attack, but added that they acknowledge no first-hand information on the allegations.
The post write in a Facebook, which has since been deleted), Cristina Miranda King wrote that “This incident is happening. … Many of us heard about it in school and Christine’s memory should be more than enough for us to really know deeply that the allegation is true.”
The account attracted widespread skepticism, especially because Ford had said that the alleged incident occurred in the summer when school was out of session.
On Twitter, the king added, that they had removed the statement from Facebook, because “it fulfills its purpose and I’m now dealing with a series of requests for interviews.”
King’s Twitter account has since been deleted.
