.@AndrewRestuccia and I called many of Kavanaugh’s 65 female HS acquittances who signed a letter supporting him. After his accuser came out on Sunday, only TWO said they still stood by him. More than two dozen didn’t respond, and two declined to comment. https://t.co/Q7ux6pmzrf

Not a good sign for ole Brett.

Kavanaugh’s defenders included four of the 65 high-school acquaintances who signed an open letter last week vouching for his character after the allegations were first reported.
“I stand by the letter I signed. I do not know this woman,” said Stephanie Conway McGill by email on Sunday, referring to Ford. McCaleb added, “I absolutely stand by the letter we signed.”
“I 100 percent stand behind my letter,” Julie DeVol, another of the women who signed the letter, told POLITICO Monday.
“The Brett Kavanaugh I know is a good and decent person, and I have never seen him treat women with anything but respect,” Virginia Hume wrote on Twitter Monday.
More than two dozen of the women who signed onto the letter did not immediately respond when contacted by POLITICO on Sunday about whether they still stood behind their defense of Kavanaugh. Two of the women who signed the letter declined to comment.
So wait, now only two of the 65 women that Brett Kavanaugh did not attempt to rape are still convinced that he is not actually capable of attempting rape?
I wonder if those two will still be as sure once they hear Christine Margaret Blasey testify?
Earlier today Donald Trump finally weighed in and surprising resisted attacking Kavanaugh’s accuser.
I’m not sure how long Trump can hold out but for right now he is keeping his powder dry.
