Inside Edition appears to have tracked down a home closely matching the description of a home in Rockville, Maryland, where Brett Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford 36 years ago.
The possible site of the alleged attack belonged to Kavanaugh’s high school friend, Timmy Gaudette.
According to Inside Edition:
Kavanaugh’s own calendar contains what may be vital clues about the night Dr. Ford says she was attacked at the house. The entry for July 1, 1982, says: “Go to Timmy’s for skis with Judge, Tom, Pj, Bernie, Squi.” “Skis” is believed to refer to brewskis.
The home is a brick, two-story row home that is across the street from a park.
Inside Edition tried to get inside the house, but no one was home. The crew did, however, get access to a neighbor’s home with what’s said to have the same floor plan, which appears to match Dr. Ford’s testimony: a narrow set of stairs, a room to the left and bathroom across the hall.
Here’s how Dr. Ford’s described the home in her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week:
Brett and Mark were visibly drunk. Early in the evening, I went up a narrow set of stairs leading from the living room to a second floor to use the restroom. When I got to the top of the stairs, I was pushed from behind into a bedroom. I couldn’t see who pushed me. Brett and Mark came into the bedroom and locked the door behind them. There was music already playing in the bedroom. It was turned up louder by either Brett or Mark once we were in the room. I was pushed onto the bed and Brett got on top of me. He began running his hands over my body and grinding into me. I yelled, hoping someone downstairs might hear me, and I tried to get away from him, but his weight was heavy. Brett groped me and tried to take off my clothes. He had a hard time because he very inebriated, and because I was wearing a one-piece bathing suit under my clothes. I believed he was going to rape me.
“I tried to yell for help. When I did, Brett put his hand over my mouth to stop me from screaming. This was what terrified me the most, and has had the most lasting impact on my life. It was hard for me to breathe, and I thought that Brett was accidentally going to kill me. Both Brett and Mark were drunkenly laughing during the attack. They seemed to be having a good time. Mark seemed ambivalent, urging Brett on, although at times he told Brett to stop. A couple of times I made eye contact with Mark and thought he might try to help me, but he did not.”
“During this assault, Mark came over and jumped on the bed twice while Brett was on top of me. The last time he did this, we toppled over and Brett was no longer on top of me. I was able to get up and run out of the room. Directly across from the bedroom was a small bathroom. I ran inside the bathroom and locked the door. I waited until I heard Brett and Mark leave the bedroom laughing and loudly walk down the narrow stairs, pin-balling off the walls on the way down.“
Gaudette’s home is roughly 10 miles from the Columbia Country Club in Chevy Chase, Maryland, where Dr. Ford says she spent the day swimming before going to the party where she was allegedly assaulted.
Inside Edition also visited the Safeway Supermarket in Potomac Village, where Dr. Ford said she ran into Mark Judge, who she claimed was the other boy involved in the incident with Kavanaugh, weeks after the assault.
William Fishburne, Kavanaugh’s former Georgetown Prep classmate, spoke to Inside Edition about what the judge and his friends were like.
“They would talk about getting really drunk. Blackout was not a common term but [they would] absolutely talk about drinking a whole lot and getting really drunk,” he said.
“I can remember Brett Kavanaugh talking about being a Supreme Court justice in high school,” Fishburne added.
