Christine Ford is apparently in hiding, and so far at least unwilling to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about wild accusations of attempted rape she has made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh unless there is a full FBI investigation first.

Meanwhile, the man Ford says witnessed the attack says he doesn't know what she is talking about and doesn't want to get involved. Fox News reports that Mark Judge, the man Ford says prevented Kavanaugh from raping her some 36 years ago, said in a letter to Committee Chair Charles Grassley:

"I did not ask to be involved in this matter nor did anyone ask me to be involved. The only reason I am involved is because Dr. Christine Blasey Ford remembers me as the other person in the room during the alleged assault."

"In fact, I have no memory of the alleged incident. Brett Kavanaugh and I were friends in high school but I do not recall the party described in Dr. Ford's letter. More to the point, I never saw Brett act in the manner Dr. Ford describes."

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California), who brought the Ford accusations to light, has a lot of explaining to do, since she was informed of the situation in July but only chose to disclose what she knew late last week. Feinstein tells Fox News she can't even say that Ford is telling the truth. "I can't say everything's truthful. I don't know," she said.

The Democrats, led by Feinstein, are so desperate to derail Kavanaugh's confirmation that they will try anything, even if what is left of their credibility is lost in the process.

Let's have a vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation before the wheels come completely off of this circus train.
