In what could be the most explosive evidence to date in the Ford/Kavanaugh saga is that Senate staffers spoke to two men who believe it was they and not Kavanaugh who sexually assaulted Christine Ford. One of the men was able to give a complete and detailed description of his encounter with Ford. The names of the two men are currently being withheld but they could be required to testify in the future but have already filed affidavits on their stories. Staffers were required to offer a timeline of their activities and in that timeline was the account of staffers interviewing the two men.
Documents released by majority members of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday evening threw a new wrinkle into the accusations against Kavanaugh, the night before he and Ford are scheduled to testify about the situation.
Republican members of the committee released a summary timeline of staff activities related to the numerous sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh. The timeline includes several bullet points that indicate two men have said Kavanaugh did not sexually assault Christine Blasey Ford at a 1982 party — because they did it.
Daily Mail political editor David Martosko posted screenshots from the timeline on Twitter, highlighting these key items.
Whoa. Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans say they have spoken to two men who think they, not Kavanaugh, had the 1982 encounter that formed the basis for her sexual abuse claim. (These tables are from a timeline the committee majority published 15 minutes ago.) pic.twitter.com/tjz3CSQUUL

Here is the timeline of the staffer’s encounter with the two men:
- Committee staff have first interview with a man who believes he, not Judge Kavanaugh, had the encounter with Dr. Ford in 1982 that is the basis of his complaint. He submitted a written statement earlier in the day.
From Sept. 25:
- Committee staff have a second interview with a man who believes he, not Judge Kavanaugh, had the encounter with Dr. Ford in the summer of 1982 that is the basis of her allegation. He described his recollection of their interaction in some detail.
And from Sept. 26:
- Committee staff receive a more in-depth written statement from the man interviewed twice previously who believes he, not Judge Kavanaugh, had the encounter in question with Dr. Ford.
- Committee investigative staff spoke via phone with another man who believes he, not Judge Kavanaugh, had the encounter with Dr. Ford in 1982 that is the basis of her allegation. He explained his recollection of the details of the encounter.
This is a real game changer.
