The Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday released Brett Kavanaugh’s calendars from the summer of 1982, which the Supreme Court nominee claims were meticulously kept and show he never attended a party with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who says Kavanaugh attempted to rape him.

The calendars released cover May to August of 1982, and revolve around typical teen events: Beach Week, college interviews, and football camp. He also leaves rampant reminders to “lift,” presumably weights.

While Kavanaugh has said that the calendars prove he did not attend a party where Ford was present they are not necessarily definitive. Some events detailed are laden with question marks (“Nikki comes over????”) and entire dates are left blank. It’s also clear some events were added before they occurred, and some after.

On July 28, 1982, the calendar also included a note, “go to Judge’s,” which is possibly about Mark Judge, the person who was allegedly with Kavanaugh when the assault occurred.

A date for the alleged assault was never given by Ford, she only said that it happened that summer.

One thing that was noted online: Kavanaugh, who claimed he was a choirboy, certainly seemed to party a lot.


He was also grounded repeatedly.

Both Ford and Kavanaugh will testify before the Judiciary Committee tomorrow.

A vote on Kavanaugh by the committee is scheduled for tomorrow.
