WJ: A Maryland police chief on Monday denied media accounts that his department is looking into 35-year-old allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
The Sentinel, a newspaper based in Montgomery County, Maryland, on Monday reported on Monday that “investigators” were “aware of a potential second sexual assault complaint” against Kavanaugh.
Christine Blasey Ford has accused Kavanaugh of acting in a sexually inappropriate manner towards her during a party in the 1980s, when both were in high schools located in Montgomery County. Kavanaugh has denied the incident ever happened.
The report quoted Police Chief J. Thomas Manger as saying, “We are prepared to investigate if the victim wants to report to us, and we can determine it occurred in the county.”
However, after the initial report came out, Manger had different words to say.
“I have spoken with my chief of detectives, and neither of us have any knowledge of anyone coming forward to us to report any allegations involving Judge Kavanaugh,” he said, according to the Washington Examiner. MORE
