Including two men who think she may have conflated them with Kavanaugh.

Christine Blasey Ford speaks before the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill September 27, 2018 in Washington, DC.

On Nov. 2, the Senate Judiciary Committee released a 28-page summary of its investigation into the sexual misconduct allegations against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, along with 386 pages of exhibits.

“After an extensive investigation that included the thorough review of all potentially credible evidence submitted and interviews of more than 40 individuals with information relating to the allegations, including classmates and friends of all those involved, Committee investigators found no witness who could provide any verifiable evidence to support any of the allegations brought against Justice Kavanaugh,” the committee concludes in the report. “In other words, following the separate and extensive investigations by both the Committee and the FBI, there was no evidence to substantiate any of the claims of sexual assault made against Justice Kavanaugh.”

The committee goes on to provide summaries of all the key evidence and interviews they conducted into the misconduct claims, including those related to the allegations leveled by Christine Blasey Ford. Along with detailing some of the evidence challenging some of Ford’s claims — including her alleged fear of flying and small spaces, as well as her claim that she had no experience taking or preparing for a polygraph test — the committee explained what potential witnesses told them under oath.

In addition to Ford, Kavanaugh and the three witnesses Ford named — who either denied any knowledge of the alleged incident or directly refuted her claims — the committee spoke with 14 former classmates of Ford and Kavanaugh. “None of them had any knowledge of the conduct alleged against Justice Kavanaugh by Dr. Ford or of the gathering at which she claimed to have been assaulted,” the committee states.

The committee notes that a “large portion of individuals providing testimony in support of Justice Kavanaugh asked that their names be redacted out of fear that their statements might result in personal or professional retribution or personal physical harm – or even risk the safety and well-being of their families and friends.” The committee respected those requests for anonymity and redacted their names from the summary and documents.

Two men, whose names are redacted, said they believed that Ford may have mistaken them for Kavanaugh. Here are the summaries of the two men’s claims:

  • [REDACTED] (Sept. 24, Sept. 25): [REDACTED] stated that after graduating from high school in Hampton, Virginia in 1982, he made several trips to D.C. that summer. During one of the trips, he attended a house party where he kissed and made out with a woman he met who he believes could have been Dr. Ford. [REDACTED] said that based on old photographs of Justice Kavanaugh he has seen on the news, he believes the two of them share a similar appearance.
  • [REDACTED] (Sept. 26): [REDACTED] stated that when he was a 19 year-old college student, he visited D.C. over spring break and kissed a girl he believes was Dr. Ford. He said that the kiss happened in the bedroom of a house which was about a 15-to-20 minute walk from the Van Ness Metro, that Dr. Ford was wearing a swimsuit under her clothing, and that the kissing ended when a friend jumped on them as a joke. [REDACTED] said that the woman initiated the kissing and that he did not force himself on her.

The committee also notes that it attempted to speak with two members of Ford’s immediate family, but they “refused to provide statements or participate in an interview.”

Below is an excerpt of the summary of the interviews related to Ford’s allegations and claims made by Democratic senators during the hearing:

In addition to conducting the hearing, the Committee contacted seventeen individuals with information relevant to Dr. Ford’s allegations. Investigators began with the three individuals Dr. Ford identified as attending the 1982 gathering: Mark Judge, Patrick J. (P.J.) Smyth, and Leland Keyser. On September 18, P.J. Smyth and Mark Judge submitted statements denying that they attended any such gathering. Mr. Judge also attested that he has no memory of the alleged incident and never saw Justice Kavanaugh act in the manner Dr. Ford alleged. On September 22, Leland Keyser, a close friend of Dr. Ford, submitted a statement saying that she did not know Justice Kavanaugh and had no memory of the alleged gathering. In a September 28 e-mail to Committee staff, Ms. Keyser’s attorney reiterated that Ms. Keyser does not know Justice Kavanaugh, has no recollection of being at a gathering with him, and cannot corroborate Dr. Ford’s account because she “has no recollection of the incident in question.” Other individuals contacted by Committee investigators included [REDACTED] and [REDACTED], two men who separately and independently had contacted the Committee claiming that they believed they had an encounter with Dr. Ford around the time of the alleged incident. Although each individual described details that in some respects seemed to fit Dr. Ford’s allegations against Justice Kavanaugh, both men described consensual encounters. The Committee also contacted fourteen former classmates of Justice Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford. None of them had any knowledge of the conduct alleged against Justice Kavanaugh by Dr. Ford or of the gathering at which she claimed to have been assaulted. The Committee also reviewed a letter submitted by 65 women who have known Justice Kavanaugh since high school stating that he has a reputation for treating women with decency and respect.

During the hearing, Judiciary Committee Democrats challenged the meaning Justice Kavanaugh ascribed to his high school yearbook entries. Following the hearing, four former classmates of Justice KavanaughDeLancey Davis, Bernard McCarthy, Jr., Paul Murray, and Matthew Quinn—wrote to the Committee to express support for Justice Kavanaugh’s explanation of the term “Devil’s Triangle.” Two other friends of Justice Kavanaugh, Greg Aceto and Bill Van Pelt, IV, also provided a statement to the Committee indicating that they understood that the Devil’s Triangle drinking game originated at Georgetown Prep. said that students purposely pushed the envelope on captions and yearbook entries. Another Georgetown Prep classmate and friend of Justice Kavanaugh, Donald Urgo, submitted a statement confirming that Justice Kavanaugh’s testimony about the terms “boofed,” “Devil’s Triangle,” and “Renate Alumnius” was “entirely correct and consistent with [his] independent understanding.”

Justice Kavanaugh’s high-school and college drinking habits also received significant attention during the hearing. As a result, several individuals who knew Justice Kavanaugh in high school and college contacted the Committee and the media to say they had never seen Justice Kavanaugh black out or lose control when drinking. These included Michael Fegan, Chris Dudley, Donald Urgo, and [REDACTED]. The Committee also interviewed other classmates at Yale who stated that Justice Kavanaugh drank heavily. However, none of them could independently confirm any alleged sexual misconduct committed by Justice Kavanaugh.
