Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is providing calendars he kept in 1982 to the Senate Judiciary Committee to back up his denial of a sexual assault allegation against him, The New York Times is reporting.
Kavanuagh’s team admits the calendars do not disprove the alleged assault took place, but say they also do not corroborate the allegations of his accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. Blasey claims Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and groped her when they were at a party in high school, and that she only escaped when his friend Mark Judge jumped on them.
People on Twitter were quick to drag the nominee and his team for thinking a calendar kept by a 17-year-old Kavanaugh would be a viable defense.
Let me get this straight: we're going to get to see the detailed calendars Kavanaugh that he supposedly kept as a 17 year-old but we're NOT going to see the hundreds of thousands of documents related to what he worked in the Bush White House?#StopKavanaughhttps://t.co/MbKUaHPEh2

MARK JUDGE: Hey Luke's parents are out of town, Dave stole a keg of Rolling Rock and Chip got fireworks so—
BRETT KAVANAUGH [transcribing in his day planner]: “Dave…stole…” a keg of Rolling Rock, was it?

Well, if Kavanaugh didn’t record his sexual assault on his little calendar. CASE CLOSED! https://t.co/Pin3fwUFbe

Too young to be held accountable, old enough to keep a meticulous calendar. Got it. https://t.co/xBoFo9oKVH

Fellow men -
Raise your hand if you both kept a daily calendar when you were a teenager AND still have those calendars handy.
Don’t all raise your hands at once, guys.
Nobody? Just you, Judge Kavanaugh? Got it.

Just got a look at the calendar from 1982 that Brett Kavanaugh will be showing to the Senate Judiciary Committee. Looks pretty rock solid. pic.twitter.com/nLXIAiuxzV

Everybody's making fun of the idea that Kavanaugh as a high school kid would keep keggers on a calendar. But that seems unfair. Obviously his secretary kept the calendar.

The Judiciary Committee has postponed a vote on whether to send Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the full Senate so it can hear from Blasey. The 51-year-old psychologist and professor from California has tentatively agreed to testify before the committee Thursday.
