A Rhode Island man who called Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse‘s office and accused Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting his friend as admitted that he “made a mistake.” This was a major allegation for the Left, and was used as part of their “case” to thwart Kavanaugh’s nomination.
As noted by The Daily Caller, a man named “Jeffrey Catalan” revealed on Twitter late on Wednesday that he was the “witness” who called Whitehouse’s office and claimed that Kavanaugh and Mark Judge, a high school friend of Kavanaugh, assaulted his friend while intoxicated.
On Tuesday, a committee investigator asked Kavanaugh about the allegation during a phone interview, and the Judge strongly denied it.
Soon after the Senate Judiciary Committee launched an investigation into his allegations, they immediately began to unravel.
Catalan’s name was redacted in the Committee’s transcripts, but he appears to have outed himself on Twitter. A cursory overview of his supposed Twitter account shows he loathes President Donald Trump and wanted the Pentagon to save the nation from “the parasite that occupies the White House.”
Here’s a screenshot of the Committee transcript:
On Wednesday night, it appears Catalan revealed via Twitter that he was the source for the claim and admitted to making a mistake with his allegations.
Below is a screenshot of his tweet.
So, the man called a Democratic Senator and alleged that Kavanaugh and Judge drunkenly assaulted one of his friends. Soon after the Committee reached out and investigated his claim, he immediately recanted and admitted to, essentially, lying.
Catalan’s utter fake news is just one of many shoddy allegations that has been brought forward against Kavanaugh in recent weeks.
The saga began a few weeks ago when the public learned about Christine Blasey Ford, who alleges Kavanaugh groped her at a high school party around 1982. She bizarrely said she believed he could have “inadvertently killed” her, but no witnesses corroborate the tale.
A second accuser, Deborah Ramirez, claims Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party in 1983. A third accuser, Julie Swetnick, came forward on Wednesday and accused Kavanaugh of taking part in “gang rapes” at parties in the early 1980s.
Two others have since come forward with allegations in the form of anonymous letters. One of which was from Catalan, who suspiciously made an anonymous allegation, provided no evidence, or proof to substantiate the claim.
Kavanaugh strongly denies the allegations, but more importantly, there are major holes in the allegations from all five accusers. Aside from Catalan admitting he “made a mistake” and that his allegations weren’t true, none of the other three women, who have been identified, can offer evidence to support their claims.
Ford has no evidence or witnesses; Ramirez admitted to being drunk at the party and having “significant gaps in her memory” about what may have happened; and Swetnick claims Kavanaugh was part of a “gang rap” cartel, where 16-year-old boys were drugging and raping women at at least 10 parties.
She said Kavanaugh was “present” at the gathering, not that he ever actually was involved in what she alleges.
There’s literally no evidence at all to support claims from any of the thee five people outside of “he said, she said” allegations.
