Prosecutor Rachel Mitchell asked Christine Blasey Ford during a hearing Thursday if she was aware that three people had submitted sworn statements that said they did not have any memory of the party where an alleged sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh occurred.

Ford said she wouldn’t expect that two of those people — her friend Leland Ingham Keyser and a man identified as P.J. — “would remember this evening. It was a very unremarkable party … because nothing remarkable happened to them that evening,” Ford said.

The third person, Mark Judge, a friend of Brett Kavanaugh’s who Ford said was in the room when the alleged assault occurred, is a different story, Ford said. “I would expect that he would remember that this happened.”
