Three Different NBC News Stories On Kavanaugh Face Accuracy Issues

05 Octobre, 2018, 07:46 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

First, the network's original story left out part of Kavanaugh's sworn testimony in which he said he had heard Ramirez was "calling around to classmates" to ask if they remembered the details of her allegation. Two other messages show communication between Kavanaugh's team and former classmates ahead of the story, NBC News reported.

According to NBC News, the texts also reveal Kavanaugh and Ramirez were more socially connected than previously understood - and Ramirez was uncomfortable around Kavanaugh when they saw each other at a wedding 10 years after graduation.

A recipient of the text messages said she forwarded them to the FBI because "they merit investigation by the FBI and the Senate".

"I didn't get the sense that this person even knew what the Kavanaugh case was about", said Oh, an emergency room doctor in California. Richard Blumenthal's office late Thursday.

They have seized on his angry performance before senators last week - when he said he was the victim of a "calculated and orchestrated political hit" motivated by Hillary Clinton's loss in the 2016 election - to suggest that he would not be an impartial figure.

And now it has emerged that Mr Kavanaugh and his staff were allegedly sending text messages to silence reports of indecent exposure - before the story had even broken.

"This appears to be another last-ditch effort to derail the nomination with baseless innuendo by Democrats who have already made a decision to vote no", Mr. Hartmann said.

"Ms. Ramirez herself contacted former Yale classmates asking if they recalled the incident and told some of them that she could not be certain Mr. Kavanaugh was the one who exposed himself", said the Times.

Berchem reportedly text Yarasavage that Ramirez had "clung to me" at the wedding to avoid Kavanaugh and his friends.

The allegation in question was an anonymous letter allegedly from a woman who claimed to have heard that Kavanaugh pushed his girlfriend "up against the wall very aggressively and sexually" as they left a bar in 1998.

Berchem also writes that Kavanaugh "and/or" his friends "may have initiated an anticipatory narrative" as early as July to discredit Ramirez - months before Kavanaugh said he first became aware of the accusation.

NBC likewise promoted the story, claiming the texts "appear to contradict some of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee". "Kavanaugh was asked by Sen".

Judge Kavanaugh told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he first heard of the Ramirez claims through the New Yorker piece, which appeared September 23.

Mark Krasberg, who lived in the same dormitory as Kavanaugh at Yale, said he had also been unsuccessful in connecting with the right people at the Federal Bureau of Investigation despite efforts to provide "information which backs up part of Debbie Ramirez's story".

This demonstrates to a near-certainty that Kavanaugh knew about the incident weeks before the story came to light.
