Washington Post tror sig veta vilket datum Kavanaughs övergrepp ska ha skett

Washington Post har granskat Kavanaughs kalender från 1982 och jämfört med Mark Judge uppgifter i en fiktiv bok (som innehåller en karaktär med namnet Bart O’Kavanaugh). Båda dessa var enligt Dr Christine Blasey Ford på festen (och i rummet) där övergreppet ska ha skett.

Football camp started Aug. 22, 1982. Judge worked for a grocery store for several weeks before that camp, meaning that he probably worked there for a period in late July to mid-August.

Ford said she saw him working at a store between six and eight weeks after the alleged incident. The end of that period — obviously just an estimated window — could overlap with any point of Judge’s tenure at the store. The alleged incident could have been six weeks before Aug. 22, for example, or it could have been eight weeks before the end of July.

That window, it’s worth noting, could include July 1, a day on which Kavanaugh’s calendar lists, “Go to Timmy’s for Skis w/ Judge, Tom, PJ, Bernie, Squi.” What “skis” refers to isn’t clear, but it might be a reference to “brewskis,” a then-popular slang term for beer. “Judge” refers to Mark Judge; “PJ” to Patrick Smyth, who Ford on Thursday again indicated was also at the gathering where she alleges she was assaulted.

Under torsdagens förhör i senaten uppgav Kavanaugh att han inte varit där under helgerna den sommaren och därför kan han inte ha gjort det. Den 1 juli var en torsdag.
