CBS Reports "The Real Bombshell" in the NYT Smear: That Blasey-Ford and Her Friends/Co-Conspirators Threatened to Smear Leland Keyser If She Didn't Back Up The Lie



And Blasey-Ford actually did smear Keyser at the hearings, if you remember.

This was outrageous.

[Kavanaugh] pointed to Keyser's statements that she didnít remember the event. "All four people allegedly at the event, including Dr. Fordís longtime friend, Ms. Keyser, have said they recall no such event, "Kavanaugh said. "Her longtime friend, Ms. Keyser, said under penalty of felony that she does not know me and does not believe she ever saw me at a party ever."

During her testimony, Ford downplayed the fact that Keyser didnít have any recollection of the incident. [Girlish Baby-Talk Voice ON] "Leland has significant health challenges, and I'm happy that sheís focusing on herself and getting the health treatment that she needs," Ford said. "I don't expect that P.J. and Leland would remember this evening."

This line of attack had been pre-schemed with the Beach Friends. In fact, one of the Beach Friends suggested straight-up extorting Keyser.

"Keyser later said she felt pressure by both [Ford classmate Lucy] Gonella and Ford's friend Monica McLean to change her story," Pogrebin and Kelly wrote.

"I was told behind the scenes that certain things could spread about me if I didn't comply," Keyser told the authors.

A group text recounted in the book between Fordís friends following the hearing included discussions on how to convince Keyser to modify her story....


Another friend, a man whoíd gone to Holton's brother school, suggested making Keyser's "addictive tendencies" -- the authors describe in the book her struggles with alcohol and drugs ó widely known. "Perhaps it makes sense to let everyone in the public know what her condition is," the man texted.
