If it wasn’t clear already that Christine Blasey Ford’s attorneys are shameless political hacks, their letter this week to the FBI director regarding the agency’s supplemental investigation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh should remove all doubt.

Debra Katz, Lisa Banks, and Michael Bromwich are not interested in the truth. They’re don't seem particularly interested in advocating on the behalf of their client. They’re concerned only with advancing the interests of the Democratic Party, and that means scuttling Kavanaugh’s nomination.

Their letter, which is addressed to FBI Director Christopher Wray, criticizes the bureau for neglecting to interview key "witnesses” who supposedly possess “highly relevant” information regarding Ford’s claim that Kavanaugh tried to rape her when they were both in high school. Because of the FBI overlooked these important players, the lawyers argue, the bureau's now-completed background investigation of Kavanaugh is a sham.

“We were heartened on September 28, 2018, when Senators Flake and Coons announced that the FBI would conduct a supplemental background investigation. All those mentioned above, and more, could easily have been interviewed in the time allotted,” the attorneys complained.

The letter added, “It took tremendous courage for Dr. Ford to come forward. As she testified before the Judiciary Committee, she was eager to talk to the FBI. The ‘investigation’ conducted over the past five days is a stain on the process, on the FBI and on our American ideal of justice.”

The letter goes on to name its supposed key "witnesses," including Ford’s husband, who she says didn’t learn about the alleged attack until 2012, and Jeremiah Hanafin, who oversaw Ford’s Aug. 7, 2018, polygraph test. The letter also names a friend of Ford, Kirsten Leimroth, who didn’t learn of the supposed attack until a whole three months ago. It names another friend, Jim Gensheimer, who also didn’t hear about the attack until roughly three months ago.

The obvious problem here is that none of these “witnesses” can offer contemporaneous corroboration or testimony proving the authenticity of Ford’s allegations.

This is every bit as stupid as when newsrooms used the word “corroborate” to describe four signed declarations from Ford’s husband and three friends claiming they heard her talk about the alleged attack in 2012, 2013, 2016, and 2017. That’s not how “corroborate” works.

I say “every bit as stupid” because two of those friends, Adela Gildo-Mazzon and Keith Koegler, are cited in the very serious attorney letter as being supposedly very serious witnesses the FBI overlooked. Ford’s husband is also mentioned.

Absurdly enough, the letter also includes this complaint: “It has come to our attention that another person who requested anonymity came forward to the FBI with information highly relevant to Judge Kavanaugh’s behavior in high school and was turned away.”

The person they’re talking about is featured briefly in the New Yorker’s shamefully irresponsible reporting on the Kavanaugh allegations. This supposedly very important “witness” submitted a sworn declaration to the FBI alleging some of Kavanaugh’s high school friends “routinely picked on” smaller and unpopular students. The anonymous “witness” concedes he never actually saw Kavanaugh attack anyone, but he tries to get around that by adding Kavanaugh did “nothing to stop the physical and verbal abuse.”

The FBI was right to ignore this clown. After this letter stunt, the FBI would be right to do the same to Ford’s attorneys.
