Kavanaugh Accuser’s Classmate Backs Off Claim She Heard About Alleged Assault

9:14 AM 09/20/2018

Media and Breaking News Edito

A classmate of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford is backing off of claims that she knew anything about an alleged sexual assault committed by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Cristina King Miranda, who attended high school with Ford, wrote on Facebook this week that she heard school rumors about an incident involving Kavanaugh and Ford back in the 1980s. Miranda later deleted the post and said she did not want to talk to the media about her claims.

However, Miranda spoke to NPR on Thursday and clarified that she has no information about an alleged assault.

“That it happened or not, I have no idea,” Cristina King Miranda told NPR’s Nina Totenberg. “I can’t say that it did or didn’t.”

Miranda’s new statement directly contradicts her Facebook post, in which she wrote, “The incident DID happen, many of us heard about it in school.”

“In my post, I was empowered and I was sure it probably did [happen],” Miranda told NPR this morning. “I had no idea that I would now have to go to the specifics and defend it before 50 cable channels and have my face spread all over MSNBC news and Twitter.”

Miranda said the Senate Judiciary Committee reached out to her after her post but that she would not testify if asked.

Dr. Ford previously said she had not told anyone about the incident until a therapist meeting in 2012. Ford also said the incident happened during the summer, contradicting Miranda’s assertion that she heard rumors about it in school.

Great, now Facebook rumors make headlines.

This is more than annoying to say the least.

WTF?

"I am absolutely, positively certain that no doubt it did happen … probably."

The Christina King crap went all over the place until someone noticed that she supposedly heard all about the alleged 1982 incident in high school, while Christine Blasey Ford allegedly never talked about the allegedly traumatic event until 2012. And then King took the letter down and walked all that crap back.

And the Fake News covered it up for all these decades!

I don't believe her now.

High schoolers of any generation certainly cannot be trusted to keep any secrets whatsoever. They say what they think, however subjectively based, and others believe not only what is said but what is NOT said, but inferred, however inaccurately.

By her account, there would have been at least 3 people who knew about it, so even if she said nothing, there would have been 2 others that could have spread the word.

And people of any age are apt to believe rumors by default. Psychology being what it is, King may have heard in high school she could have believed to be true ever since, until being challenged to testify about it before 300 million people and realizing all she "knew" was purely second hand, at best, and more likely a wild high school rumor. Though certainly other high schoolers there could have attested to the fact it was a rumor.

Memories have a way of mutating over time. Our capability to create false memories have been well demonstrated and people have gone to jail and maybe even executed because of them even without any malice on the part of witnesses.

My best guess given Kavanough has otherwise impeccable references spanning his entire life: Something of this sort really did happen to Ford, but whatever it was did not involve Kavanaugh. She's confusing him with someone else.

Second best guess: She's one of millions of hysterical Trump haters that's been paid or volunteering to lie about it, and a failure to remember the place and time (rather strange for someone who claimed the incident damaged here psychologically for many years afterwards) is a convenient way to avoid being proven a fraud.

My best guess is Blasey Ford was blind stupid drunk and has never known what happened.

Her story that she does not know what year it happened or where, nor how she got there or got home, is not credible. Getting drunk at a party to the point of not knowing how one got home does not erase memory of how one, while sober (presumably) went to a location, or where that location was. Of course, she could have got smashed before she got there. None of that would comport with her memory of having one, and only one, beer.

Second best guess is that the story is just a load of crap.

By her account, there would have been at least 3 people who knew about it, so even if she said nothing, there would have been 2 others that could have spread the word.

By Ford's account, there would have been TWO people with first hand knowledge of the alleged incident (Kavanaugh/Judge), both of whom deny they were ever at any such party. And Ford's by account, there would be FIVE who knew the location of the party, with THREE identified (Kavanaugh/Judge/Smyth), all three of whom deny any and all knowledge of such a party.

If the story went viral at the school 35 years ago, there should be loads of people able to substantiate that. The rumor mill probably included most of the student body.

Ford's recall is limited to being pushed into the bedroom, Kavanaugh holding her down, Judge jumping on the pile twice, and her escape to the hallway bathroom while Kavanaugh and Judge played grab ass, after Judge's second jump on the pile. And after they went back downstairs, she went down, left the house, and went home. That would suggest Ford's home was within walking distance of the party location.

That Feinstein has, so far, refused to provide an unredacted copy of the Ford letter to committee chairman Grassley raises serious questions about what is being withheld and why.

Not that it matters I tend to disagree. The two separate high schools were gender unique but still separate. Some in each school would know some or possibly many of the others in the other. But all in each wouldn't know all in the other school.

I attended a similar type high school, all boys.

What I stated and you accurately quoted and responded to:

If the story went viral, by definition it went viral, i.e., gained wide distribution.

Alleged former students have claimed that the story was widely discussed by the girls school student body rumor mill.

It would not matter if all students of one school know all or any students of the other school. Any alleged story of the event in the girls school is highly unlikely to resemble any alleged story in the boys school (or boys locker room in a co-ed school).

Okay, got it. Since she said nothing about it until her counseling in 2012 then it is a moot point.

I was a boarder and we had day students. I was the outsider (hours from home) who got accepted by my charming personality...eventually.

She's confusing him with someone else.

There is a rumor floating around that she accused Gorsuch of the same thing but it was never used, no letter has been found. Have not been able to confirm (although a few articles have been written saying that it didn't happen, NY Times seems to be the primary one) so for now that's still a rumor.
