Brett Kavanaugh is grasping at straws thanks to the powerful testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and the many other brave women who have accused Trump’s Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault. Now, all eyes are on Kavanaugh’s high school friend, Mark Judge, for his response to Ford’s allegations, as he is being looked at as a ‘witness’ to Kavanaugh’s partying behavior and the sexual assault. Unfortunately for Kavanaugh, Judge doesn’t want to do much in terms of helping his old buddy.

While Judge did come to Kavanaugh’s defense, stating that he “did not recall the events described by Dr. Ford and never saw Brett act in the manner described”, Judge admitted that he had not been in contact with Kavanaugh for numerous years and wants nothing to do with his high school friend’s controversial nomination. For health reasons, Judge has pleaded for privacy and to be left out of it.

In a letter to the Committee, Judge stated that he has been battling depression and anxiety while healing from alcoholism and cancer.


Judge’s letter also stated:

I did not ask to be involved in this matter, nor did anyone ask me to be involved. We have told the Committee that I do not want to comment about these events publicly.

As a recovering alcoholic and a cancer survivor, I have struggled with depression and anxiety. As a result, I avoid public speaking.”

Judge’s statement stands in stark contrast to what university psychology professor Dr. Ford is claiming, stating that Judge had been a witness to the attack and actually encouraged Kavanaugh. Ford accused both Kavanaugh and Judge of pushing her into a bedroom and locking the door, and said that Kavanaugh ripped her clothes off while both men laughed.

Could Judge just be trying to cover his own a**? With all of this taken into account, Ford still remains more credible even with Judge’s statement about not being familiar with the event Ford has described. Judge’s history of alcoholism and the fact that he has written a book that is called ‘Wasted: Tales of a GenX Drunk’, which talks about his escapades of ‘drinking and smoking and hooking up’ falls right in line with the picture that Ford and Kavanaugh’s many other accusers have been painting of their experiences with Kavanaugh.

In the end, we choose to believe multiple women telling similar credible stories over one “far-removed friend” who wants no part of this.
