The Washington Post reported on Monday that two women who dated Judge Brett Kavanaugh — one in high school, the other in college — have now gone on record defending his character and how he treats women.
“Brett Kavanaugh and I have been good friends since high school,” said Maura Fitzgerald, who dated Kavanaugh in college. “I dated him in college and he was and is nothing like the person who has been described. He always conducted himself honorably with me at all times when we were together. He was always a perfect gentleman, and I vouch for him completely.”
“I’ve been friends with Brett Kavanaugh for over 35 years, and dated him during high school,” said Maura Kane, another woman Kavanaugh dated. “In every situation where we were together he was always respectful, kind and thoughtful. The accusations leveled against him in no way represent the decent young man I knew. We remain good friends and I admire him as a husband, father and professional.”
This latest development comes as Kavanaugh is reportedly set to speak to judiciary committee staffers at 5:30 p.m. EST about the allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford.
The Democratic members of the committee are reportedly not planning on being in attendance to participate.
