In written testimony delivered to the Senate Judiciary Committee, a third named witness has rejected allegations made by Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser.

Under 18 U.S.C § 1001, letters to the Judiciary Committee are subject to criminal penalty if false.
Ms. Keyer, whom CNN confirms is “a lifelong friend of Ford’s,” is the third named witness to deny any knowledge of the allegations. The other two, Mark Judge and Patrick Smyth, issued written statements to that effect earlier in the week. Thus far, nobody has backed up the account advanced by Kavanaugh’s accuser, while Kavanaugh and three other named witnesses have rejected it outright.
Dr. Ford is set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
