who is Kathy Charlton

Ever since Brett Kavanaugh’s hearings regarding his alleged sexual assault and misconduct while in high school, both sides of the political spectrum have made attempts to voice their opinions regarding his character. While most Republicans thought the allegations made by Christine Blasey Ford held no merit, Democrats pushed back and thanked her for her testimony.

Though Kavanaugh was pushed through to the Supreme Court, despite the “limited scope” FBI investigation, we can’t ignore the fact that there are two (possibly three) other women who came forward and accused him of sexual misconduct. One of those women, Deborah Ramirez, accused Kavanaugh of exposing his penis to her and making her touch it at a party in the 1980s.

And though the accusations themselves are interesting, Ramirez named a witness in her interview with the FBI, a friend named Kathy Charlton. But who is Kathy Charlton and what role exactly does she play in all of this?

According to Charlton, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh’s, a few days before Ramirez’s story was published, she received scathing text messages from a mutual friend. In the texts, the unnamed friend sent a text that said, “Don't F****** TELL PEOPLE BRETT GOT IN TOUCH WITH ME!!! I TOLD YOU AT THE TIME THAT WAS IN CONFIDENCE!!!'” and was upset that Charlton had spoken to the press regarding a call between the friend and Kavanaugh.

Charlton also alleges Kavanaugh reached out to the friend and instructed him to report “no bad” in regards to his character, even before the allegations went public.

But are these texts enough to “prove” that he’s guilty? Well, not exactly, seeing as how Kavanaugh is already confirmed and the Senate doesn’t seem interested in investigating any further. In a statement to the FBI, Charlton wrote, “From the content and all capital letters of the text, (the alleged witness) seemed to feel that there was a great deal at stake for Brett if Brett's fears of exposure ever became public.”

If that sounds suspicious, you aren’t alone. Because another one of Kavanaugh’s Yale classmates, Kerry Berchem, who knew both Ramirez and the Judge, support Charlton’s allegations that the text messages are real, and claims she was also in possession of them.

So, if these texts are true, it would “contradict sworn testimony Kavanaugh gave to Senators when he said the first time he heard of the allegations was when they appeared in print.”

As these allegations continue to unfold, it’s unclear what will happen, seeing as how not many people seem interested in getting to the truth and are more concerned with elections next month.
