Ka­vanaugh to give Se­nate cal­en­dars from 1982 that back up his de­nial

Austin American-Statesman - - FROM PAGE ONE - Peter Baker

Judge Brett Ka­vanaugh has cal­en­dars from the sum­mer of 1982 that he plans to hand over to the Se­nate Ju­di­ciary Com­mit­tee that do not show a party con­sis­tent with the de­scrip­tion of his ac­cuser, Chris- tine Blasey Ford, ac­cord­ing to some­one work­ing for his con­fir­ma­tion.

The cal­en­dars do not dis­prove Blasey’s al­lega- tions, Ka­vanaugh’s team ac­knowl­edged. He could have at­tended a party that he did not list. But his team

will ar­gue to the se­na­tors that the cal­en­dars pro­vide no cor­rob­o­ra­tion for her ac­count of a small gath­er­ing at a house where he al­legedly pinned her to a bed and tried to re­move her cloth­ing.

The cal­en­dars show, ac­cord­ing to the per­son work­ing for his con­fir­ma­tion, that he was out of town much of the sum­mer at the beach or away with his par

ents. When he was at home, the cal­en­dars list his bas­ket­ball games, movie out­ings, foot­ball work­outs and col­lege in­ter­views.

A few par­ties are men­tioned but in­clude names of friends other than those iden­ti­fied by Blasey.
