Christine Blasey Ford's friend, who was cited as a witness to the alleged sexual assault by Justice Brett Kavanaugh, says she was threatened with a "smear campaign" unless she backed the claims made against the then-Supreme Court nominee, according to reports.

Ford claims her highschool friend Leland Keyser witnessed the alleged assault, yet Keyser argues that the story doesn't "add up" and asserts that she has no recollection of the incident.

Keyser says the alleged assault “didn’t make any sense” and claims she was threatened to support the accusations by Ford's "allies."

Ford says her friend Keyser was at the party with her in 1982 when she alleges Justice Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her.

In a new book, however, titled The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation, authored by New York Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, Keyser is quoted as saying, “I don’t have any confidence in the story.

"Those facts together I don’t recollect, and it just didn’t make any sense.”

“It would be impossible for me to be the only girl at a get-together with three guys, have her leave, and then not figure out how she’s getting home,” Keyser recalled.

“I just really didn’t have confidence in the story.”

On Monday evening, Jan Crawford of CBS News reported Keyser claimed “Ford’s allies pressured her” to support the accusation against Kavanaugh and was threatened with a “smear campaign” if she did not comply:

As Neon Nettle previously reported, several Democrat presidential candidates were calling for Justice Kavanaugh to be impeached after the Times published an article containing more unsupported allegations about Kavanaugh.

The story claims that he had pulled his pants down and thrust his penis at a female student during a party in college.

“I sat through those hearings. Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people,” Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) wrote on Twitter.

“He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice.

"He must be impeached.”

According to Breitbart, however, the Times was forced to correct the story on Monday after it was revealed that the “victim” of Kavanaugh’s alleged vulgar action at college refused to confirm the story.

On Monday evening, President Trump said during a rally in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, that the newspaper will “never recover” from its mistake regarding the allegations against Kavanaugh.

“They’ve taken the old grey lady and broken her down, destroyed her virtue, and ruined her reputation,” the president commented.

"She can never recover and will never return to greatness under current management."
