Blasey Ford’s “Witness” Says She Was Threatened When She Wouldn’t Back Her Story

Leland Keyser was Christine Blasey’s good friend. Blasey named her as one of the witnesses at the fictitious party in Maryland. Wapo, in September of 2018, wrote that Keyser “believed Ford’s assertions.”

That was a lie.

Keyser said she didn’t “have any confidence in the story.”


In her own book, “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court,” Hemingway details the pressure applied on Keyser to get her to back up Ford’s tale. The new book does so, too, saying Ford’s friends “had grown frustrated with Keyser. Her comments about the alleged Kavanaugh incident had been too limited, some of them felt, and did not help their friend’s case. Surely, given what a close friend Keyser had been, she could say more to substantiate Ford’s testimony and general veracity, even if she could not corroborate Ford’s more specific memories.”

The pressure grew intense. “I was told behind the scenes that certain things could be spread about me if I didn’t comply,” Keyser told the authors.

As previously reported in “Justice on Trial,” Keyser continues to think about the story in which she was supposed to have played a part. She has both “logistical and character-driven” problems with it. Focusing on one of the angles that many women had trouble believing, she says, “It would be impossible for me to be the only girl at a get-together with three guys, have her leave, and then not figure out how she’s going to get home.”

The authors previously note that Blasey Ford suggested that Keyser might have driven her home, which they do not note is a change from her claim that she does not know how she got home. Keyser also reflects that the get-togethers of their youth were not like the one Ford described. She adds, “I just really didn’t have confidence in the story.” -‘The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation,’ by Robin Pogebrin and Kate Kelly

  1. You’ve got your Islamic radicals and you’ve got your democrat socialist radicals.
    At least with the Islamic radicals their intentions are quite clear – although Odumbo and even dumber John Kerry would never call them out by name.

  2. Twitchy has a great thread on why all of this is coming up now – basically that there are some very damaging cases coming up at SCOTUS this term that they expect to lose, not to mention the RBG concern, and the left wants to attack the credibility of the court.
    Note that the tweets are posted on behalf of the actual author, who was banned from Twitter.

  3. I thought Diane Feinstein’s office did something nefarious in and around all this Kavanaugh stuff, too. Whatever happened to that? Am I misremembering?

  4. Until our great and powerful legal system starts to work on ending these “the girl who cried wolf” types, plan on hearing a continuous never ending political stream of make believe tales.

  5. I thinking she was never really your friend as far as the way a friend would treat you, unless you like being dropped on your head.

  6. When it came to lying to America and to Congress, Ballsy Ford persisted.

    When it came to Keyser lying for her, she resisted.

    Her commie cohorts still insisted.

    That’s alot of risk for an asterisk.

    The liberal enemedia acts with a reckless and malicious abandon that they claimed bloggers in their pajamas had. They assume with blind faith that their colleagues actually research and factcheck a piece before its published.

    But we’re in an age of Too Good To Check propagandizing.

  7. she cant say who threatened her or when it happened or what was specifically said and where she was when the threat was made. she’s not sure how she got to where her life was threatened, nor does she know how she got home. she had friends with her when said threats were made but she can’t recall who they were exactly. however, if she can raise another million on go fund me she may come up with inside info on area 51, which ironically enough she cant give definitive dates, names, location or time she was there being raped by R2D2 & Han Solo.

    the only way this stops are for charges to be filed and the full weight of the DOJ comes crashing down on those that lie.

  8. That is witness tampering, a real felony.
    There should be an investigation, although probably there won’t be at this stage, but witness tampering is a serious crime and in this case, it would have impact on the Supreme Court of the United States for years to come.
    This is a much bigger story than the story Blasey Ford told.
    I think Blasey Ford’s story was pretty much lifted out of Mark Judge’s book, “Wasted: Tales of a GenX Drunk”. It was in the public domain and was available for review. People say that the book validated Blasey Ford’s testimony, however if the testimony is essentially a book report, a story to fit the book, then it undermines the testimony. Anyone could have read the book, then given the testimony.

  9. ANYONE who brings a false accusation to any one to be confirmed by congress should spend an automatic 5 year sentence in prison! That was my wife’s idea…I preferred the DEATH PENALTY buy she thought it was a little too harsh….BULLSHI!

  10. Abigail, Feinstein sat on the accusation until the last possible minute. I think she had it six weeks before she released it and all hell broke loose. She knew it wouldn’t stand scrutiny.
