In an email Sunday afternoon to THE WEEKLY STANDARD, Judge responded to the Washington Post report: “Now that the anonymous person has been identified and has spoken to the press, I repeat my earlier statement that I have no recollection of any of the events described in today’s Post article or attributed to her letter. Since I have nothing more to say I will not comment further on this matter. I hope you will respect my position and my privacy.”

In response to an earlier New Yorker story alleging that Kavanaugh as minor had “attempted to force himself” on an unnamed female high school student in Judge’s presence, Judge told TWS on Friday: “It’s just absolutely nuts. I never saw Brett act that way.”
