Mark Judge has just stated he will not testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Judge is the man who was named as the only witness by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford to what she says is sexual assault and attempted rape by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“I have no memory of this alleged incident,” Judge says in a letter via his attorney, to Chairman Chuck Grassley and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein.
Democrats have been urging Republicans to have Judge testify on Monday.
His letter (a copy below) also says, “I did not ask to be involved in this matter nor did anyone ask me to be involved.” And he adds, “I do not recall the party described in Dr. Ford’s letter.”

But Judge’s denials hold less weight than when they are made under oath – and under threat of the penalty of perjury.
While Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee have scheduled a hearing for Monday, they did so before asking Dr. Blasey Ford. She has yet to agree to appear before the Committee.
Judge appears to have deleted his Twitter account recently.
Republicans admit it: Senate impeachment trial of Trump will be a total sham
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell knows Donald Trump is guilty. He just doesn't care — McConnell plans to cover it up and doesn't even really care how obvious that is.
All that was made clear from an article published late Wednesday in the Washington Post, in which Senate Republicans admitted that the plan is to rubber-stamp their acquittal of Trump, and their lack of desire to even try to dignify this travesty of justice by pretending to hold a real impeachment trial, as the Constitution demands.
Giuliani associates’ company promised to build a bizarre temple over Jerusalem
The Wall Street Journal has uncovered new details about the strange work done by Fraud Guarantee, the company founded by Lev Parnas, the indicted henchman of Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.
Specifically, the Journal was given information from an investor who says he plugged $250,000 into Fraud Guarantee after Parnas told him that he could use his connections with President Donald Trump to help promote his initiative to create peace in the Middle East.
‘Keanu Reeves day’ as Matrix, John Wick sequels set
Keanu Reeves' "renaissance" is about to step up a gear.
May 21, 2021 has been dubbed "Keanu day," with both his hotly anticipated "Matrix" and "John Wick" sequels due to hit theaters simultaneously in the US.
The scheduling appears to be a coincidence, with kung fu-inflected sci-fi flic "The Matrix 4" being distributed by Warner Bros, and hitman thriller "John Wick: Chapter 4" coming from rival studio Lionsgate.
While either date could shift, that has not stopped die-hard fans of the "Point Break" and "Bill and Ted" actor from flocking to social media to share their excitement.
