Christine Ford’s Questionable Accusation vs. Keith Ellison’s Accuser’s Verified Accusation


Where is the investigation of the accusations against Rep Keith Ellison? He is accused of Domestic Violence against his former girlfriend Karen Monahan. She has doctor reports and police reports which is far more evidence than that provided by Dr. Ford. Dr. Ford doesn’t remember anything about the incident except who was there. When can we expect the investigation of Ellison to start?

The woman who accused Democratic Minnesota Representative Keith Ellison of domestic abuse last month has reiterated her allegations that the Congressman physically and emotionally abused her during their relationship.

Karen Monahan, the woman who claims that Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison (MN) abused her while the two were in a relationship, released what appears to be medical records on Wednesday that show she told her physician in 2017 that Ellison had physically and emotionally abused her and that she was afraid to speak up because she feared retribution.

Monahan released a photo of her medical report from 11/28/2017 on a Twitter account identified by numerous media outlets as being her account.

“She states that she was in a very stressful environment for years, emotional and physical abuse by a partner with whom she is now separated,” the report states. “She identifies the individual she was involved with as Congressman Ellison, and she is worried about retribution if she identifies him publicly.”

The Free Beacon notes that Monahan claims that Ellison abused her as recently as 2016 and that “she agreed to sit down with investigators to discuss Ellison’s abuse, but he declined a meeting with her.”

Karen Monahan tweeted Monday that the Democrats had not stood by her since she accused Ellison, who is running for Minnesota attorney general, of the abuse.

“I’ve been smeared, threatened, isolated from my own party. I provided medical records from 2017, stating on two different Dr. Visits, I told them about the abuse and who did it. My therapist released records stating I have been dealing and healing from the abuse,” she wrote on social media. “Four people, including my supervisor at the time, stated that I came to them after and shared the exact story I shared publicly, I shared multiple text between me and Keith, where I discuss the abuse with him and much more. As I said before, I knew I wouldn’t be believed.”

Meanwhile, Christine Blasey Ford sent a letter dated July 30, 2018, to Dianne Feinstein stating that in the early 1980s, she was at a “gathering” at a home in suburban Maryland with four others.  Brett Kavanaugh and Mark Judge, both drunk, forced her into a room and locked the door, and Kavanaugh then got on top of her.  Judge also “periodically” jumped on top of both.  Kavanaugh put a hand over her mouth and she believed he would “inadvertently” kill her.  At one point, Judge jumped on both again, and she took this “opportune” moment to run outside and go home.


Ford reported this incident to her “local government representative” on July 6, 2018.

She then wrote to Feinstein to provide “relevant information regarding the current nominee” to the Supreme Court. Here is the actual letter Ford wrote to Feinstein:

July 30 2018  CONFIDENTIAL

Senator Dianne Feinstein

Dear Senator Feinstein;

I am writing with information relevant in evaluating the current nominee to the Supreme Court. As a constituent, I expect that you will maintain this as confidential until we have further opportunity to speak.  Brett Kavanaugh physically and sexually assaulted me during high school in the early 1980’s.  He conducted these acts with the assistance of REDACTED.  Both were one to two years older than me and students at a local private school.

The assault occurred in a suburban Maryland area home at a gathering that included me and four others.  Kavanaugh physically pushed me into a bedroom as I was headed for a bathroom up a short stair well [sic] from the living room.  They locked the door and played loud music precluding any successful attempt to yell for help.  Kavanaugh was on top of me while laughing with REDACTED, who periodically jumped onto Kavanaugh.  They both laughed as Kavanaugh tried to disrobe me in their highly inebriated state.  With Kavanaugh’s hand over my mouth I feared he may inadvertently kill me.  From across the room a very drunken  REDACTED said mixed words to Kavanaugh ranging from “go for it” to “stop.”

At one point when REDACTED jumped onto the bed the weight on me was substantial.  The pile toppled, and the two scrapped with each other.  After a few attempts to get away, I was able to take this opportune moment to get up and run across to a hallway bathroom.  I locked the bathroom door behind me.  Both loudly stumbled down the stair well at which point other persons at the house were talking with them.  I exited the bathroom, ran outside of the house and went home.  I have not knowingly seen Kavanaugh since the assault.  I did see REDACTED once at the REDACTED where he was extremely uncomfortable seeing me.

I have received medical treatment regarding the assault.  On July 6 I notified my local government representative to ask them [sic] how to proceed with sharing this information.  It is upsetting to discuss sexual assault and its repercussions, yet I felt guilty and compelled as a citizen about the idea of not saying anything.

I am available to speak further should you wish to discuss.  I am currently REDACTED and will be in REDACTED.

In confidence, REDACTED.

Ford did not report this until 2012, when she was in couples’ therapy, where she reported it to her therapist.  The therapist notes do not include Kavanaugh’s name, which Ford blames on the therapist.  Her husband, Russell Ford, said he remembered his wife specifically using Kavanaugh’s name during the 2012 therapy session and that they were concerned that Kavanaugh would be nominated to the Supreme Court. Why were they so concerned he would even be named to the supreme court? How would they even know he would be named?

In an article at American Thinker they listed seven reasons why Ford’s testimony is not credible.

First, why, if this happened, didn’t this 15-year-old girl immediately tell her parents that she was attacked and then report to the police?  The police could then have questioned everyone at the “gathering.”  She says she thought Kavanaugh would inadvertently kill her, yet she does not report this to her parents and the police?  This isn’t credible.  According to the Washington Post, her explanation is as follows:

My biggest fear was, do I look like someone just attacked me?  I’m not ever telling anyone this.  This is nothing, it didn’t happen, and he didn’t rape me.

Her parents would not believe her because she didn’t look as though someone had attacked her?  What parents will not believe their 15-year-old daughter who runs home to tell them drunken boys tried to rape her?

Second, Kavanaugh has been investigated by the FBI for appointments to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, White House counsel, and other federal jobs.  Why didn’t Ford call the FBI all those times so the FBI could investigate Kavanaugh?

Third, Mark Judge has denied the accusation.

Fourth, according to her husband, the motivation for telling the therapist in 2012 was that Kavanaugh might be appointed to the Supreme Court.  This shows political motivation: she does not want Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court, although she did not care that he was on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.

Fifth, why write to a “local government representative” on July 6, 2018, and then Feinstein on July 30, 2018, instead of contacting the police?  The “local” Democrat and Feinstein should have immediately referred this to the FBI for as information relevant to his background check and she should have filed a police report.  Feinstein should have immediately shared the letter with the entire Judiciary Committee so members could question Kavanaugh.  Instead, Feinstein played a political game to wait for an ambush.

Sixth, note the odd language in the letter.  She was at a “gathering,” not a party.  She contacted her “local Democratic representative” to find out how to proceed.  She is a college professor, yet she acts as though she doesn’t know to call the police.  She says she received “medical treatment” “for the assault,” but aside from one couples therapy session in 2012, there is no mention of any other treatment.

Seventh, Ford said there were four boys at the “gathering.”  Her attorney, Debra Katz, now says there was a girl present.

Ford’s letter of July 30 and her therapy notes of 2012 show her motivation and provide much material for a vigorous cross-examination if this were a case handled by real attorneys.

The latest is that Ford wants the FBI to investigate before she testifies, but the alleged crime is a local one that the FBI does not have jurisdiction over.  The bottom line is that Ford and the Dems and the media want to delay the vote and hope Kavanaugh withdraws. Ford and the Dems and the media know that her story will not hold up.

Senator Lindsey Graham also spoke out, saying the Democrat tactics were “not about finding the truth, but delaying the process till after the midterm elections.”

The Dems and the media said Bill Clinton’s sexual misconduct, including the rape of Juanita Broaddrick, was irrelevant to Clinton serving as president.  They also said Teddy Kennedy’s driving his car into the pond drunk at Chappaquiddick, leaving Mary Jo Kopechne to die, while he swam away and waited twelve hours to report to the police, was irrelevant to him serving as a senator and running for the presidency.

First of all, why is a “credible” Doctor seeing a Psycho Dr. for Meds? Besides the fact that all Statute of Limitations ran out 28 years ago. She just wants the vote to be delayed until after the election in the hope that there will be a blue wave in the Senate and the Dems will have the majority.

This is all selective moral outrage. All these people who oppose Trump suddenly believe this woman just because she is a Dem and opposes Kavanaugh. Never mind that she doesn’t remember the exact date or where the party was or how she got there or how she got home or how many people were actually there.

Yes, Keith Ellison’s accuser has a right to be outraged. She was beaten and reported her situation right away with a doctor’s note and nothing happened. This wasn’t thirty four years ago, but just in 2016. It just goes to prove that if a dem abuses a woman like Clinton did with Juanita Broderick, Kathleen Willey or Paula Jones they let it go, but if a Republican is accused of abusing a woman without any proof they are automatically guilty.

Now Ed Whelan, Justice Scalia’s former law clerk and president of conservative think tank the Ethics and Public Policy Center (EPPC), came out in defense of Brett Kavanaugh and said compelling evidence will come out next week exonerating Kavanaugh.

The “Maryland suburban home”–the scene of the alleged sexual assault described by Christine Ford to WaPo as being ‘not too far from the Columbia Country Club’ may have belonged to Kavanaugh’s friend named Chris Garrett, says Ed Whelan.

Follow this thread by Whelan…

Dr. Ford may well have been the victim of a severe sexual assault by someone 36 years ago. Her allegations are so vague as to such basic matters as when and where that it is impossible for Judge Kavanaugh to *prove* his innocence

According to Ford’s letter, the assault occurred “in a suburban Maryland area home at a gathering that included me and four others.” Her WaPo account adds that the house was “not far from” the Columbia Country Club.

The “four others” that she and her lawyer have identified are Kavanaugh, Mark Judge, P.J. Smyth, and a female classmate of Ford’s. None of the four lived in the vicinity of the Columbia Country Club.

Kavanaugh’s home was 3.6 miles away; Smyth’s 4.3 miles; Judge’s 10 miles; and the female classmate’s 7 miles.

There is a house that is barely a half-mile from the Columbia Country Club. Street address: 3714 Thornapple Street, Chevy Chase.

The floor plan corresponds closely to Ford’s description of the house where the gathering took place

Who lived in this house? Chris Garrett, a Georgetown Prep classmate, friend, and football teammate of Brett Kavanaugh’s.

Folks who knew both Kavanaugh and Garrett in high school have commented on how much they resembled each other in appearance.


 Ed Whelan went on to say, “If you’re at a gathering of “four others” in someone’s home, you’d ordinarily think that the four others include the host who lives in the home. And that host would be the person least likely to act like a guest and most likely to use private areas of the house.”

Whelan admits he did not have proof for his claims but they were only his assumptions.

Feinstein is refusing to give Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley the unredacted letter Christine Ford sent Senate Democrats in July further fueling suspicions there is exculpatory evidence in the letter.

  1. I am writing in response to your comment “First, why, if this happened, didn’t this 15-year-old girl immediately tell her parents that she was attacked and then report to the police? The police could then have questioned everyone at the “gathering.”

    Your comment of skepticism, although it may make sense to you, is just not true. Many teenagers back when this incident was alleged to have occured, would not tell their parents or anyone. Here is why – back in the day, rape was a term you applied to a stranger who broke into your house, tied you up, held a gun to your head and assaulted you. When I was a teenager, if a girl was assaulted or raped by someone she knew, she would not call it rape. She would likely be very ashamed and blame herself. She might even suppress it and consider that it never really happened.

    Please believe me. I know of what I speak. Once again, only commenting on this one point.

    1. While I don’t have first-hand experience from either perspective, I understand Lydia’s point. There are many cases where a woman, having been attacked, would rather not come forward.

      There is a different evil in Ms. Ford’s approach to this, however. If the reason she has not filed a police report, even to this day, is that she was ashamed, or otherwise didn’t wish it public – why publish a letter to a public figure? Why demand an investigation, but fail to do the one thing that would guarantee to trigger it?

      I cannot imagine that a person, so weighed-down with shame, would take so public an approach while not doing the one thing that might bring justice if the claim were true.

      1. Yes, Lydia does have a very valid point….but it doesn’t cancel the ‘motive’ that moved this good doctor, known activist (pink hat and all)….I suspect that in 2013 during her couple counseling that ‘some form of medication’ was assigned ??? The other reason would be $$$$$$$$$
        Now it seems that her lawyer and newly acquired X-McCabe atty are doing all the talking….and it’s delay at any cost….They don’t give a hoot about Kauvanaugh, it’s the President they want
