A high school classmate who claims to remember an “incident” involving Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford said on Wednesday that she may not come forward because she has been overwhelmed by media requests.

On Tuesday, a woman named Christina King said on Twitter that she was a former classmate of Kavanaugh’s and had signed a letter in support of Ford, who has claimed she was sexually assaulted in high school.

The conservative website Hot Air noted later on Tuesday that Miranda’s tweet had been deleted.

Twitchy, another conservative website, accused King of “throwing a hand grenade in to the Kavanaugh debate.”

King explained on Twitter that she had decided not to speak out after being besieged by media requests.

Published

Attorney General Bill Barr’s attempt last month to push U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman out of his position at the Southern District of New York blew up in his face. While Berman was ousted, Barr didn’t get the replacement he wanted, and House Democrats are now investigating.

But last Friday night, Barr successfully pulled off a similar maneuver in the Eastern District of New York. Richard Donoghue no longer leads that office, as he has taken the position of principal associate deputy attorney general at Main Justice. Seth DuCharme, who had been principal associate deputy attorney general and worked under Barr, will now serve as the acting U.S. attorney for EDNY.
