Friend of Dr. Ford Felt Pressure to Revisit Statement

A friend of Christine Blasey Ford told FBI investigators that she felt pressured by Dr. Ford’s allies to revisit her initial statement that she knew nothing about an alleged sexual assault by a teenage Brett Kavanaugh, which she later updated to say that she believed but couldn’t corroborate Dr. Ford’s account, according to people familiar with the matter.

Leland Keyser, who Dr. Ford has said was present at the gathering where she was allegedly assaulted in the 1980s, told investigators that Monica McLean, a retired Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and a friend of Dr. Ford’s, had urged her to clarify her statement, the people said.

Оказывается, с этой стороны тоже бывают "people familiar with the matter". Подозреваю, на этот раз откровения этих people будут встречены с меньшим энтузиазмом, чем в тех случаях, когда они рассказывают репортерам, что Трамп кричит на телевизор.

Monica McLean, подруга доктора Форд, это как раз та дама, которую доктор Форд предположительно тренировала обманывать детектор лжи. После ФБР Monica McLean работала на Прита Бхарару, нью-йоркского прокурора и одного из первых героев резистанса, который заодно близкий соратник Чака Шумера. Такие дела.

Пишут, что Grassley asks Ford's legal team for records of contacts with Feinstein and Hirono 'in light of recently uncovered information'. Никто ему, понятно, ничего не даст, не на тех напал.
