“To the day I die I will believe that he did not do this.” – TOM KANE

Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s high school classmate was interviewed by CNN’s John Berman and stood his ground in a riveting interview.  Tom Kane came off as honest and forthright when he talked about just how close the high school classmates were. He made the point that if any of the assaults happened, the circle of friends and community would know:

“In our circle those days, I pretty much knew what those five or six guys were doing at every moment and there was no memory of this. It didn’t happen. Plus, our network, our community, the Catholic school kids, we would have known. These things stick.”

“Somebody would have told me. John, what did you do yesterday? ‘Oh, we got all banged up during the day and a couple of Holton girls came over and one of them ran out.’ I would remember that, okay?”

“The women we hung out with in those days were not to be trifled with them. You don’t trifle with them now.  You didn’t trifle with them then. If you upset one of them, you upset them all and you’re done.”


Berman asked Kane about the testimony from Ford and Kavanaugh:

“I rode the roller coaster like everybody else. Chrissy Blasey was riveting. Clearly, something bad happened to her. I don’t believe that Ms. Mitchell’s cross really gave us any clear answers.”

“And then enter my friend Brett Kavanaugh and he brought the energy we needed. To my mind, he put down every charge one by one. The who, what, when, where, why was clearly addressed and it reinforced what I already knew…that he’s just not capable of doing this.”
