Let’s imagine one of your best friends is wrongly accused of sexual assault on national television. Would you interrupt your beach vacation to testify in his defense?

You submit a written testimony under penalty of perjury first. None of the “witnesses” from the accusers side are willing to do so and some have gone on record to refute unequivocally their involvement or knowledge of Brett. Next Q...zzzz

Ok, maybe that’s what you do — mail it in via your lawyer. I’d show up and tell the world the accusation is false. But maybe I’m just a better friend than others

Oh, you mean another situation where an attorney made a statement on someone’s behalf. If only there were a way to clarify the situation?

Oliver Wyman OP at that BBQ you went to were there only four or five people? And three left the room and only two came back? The entire description of the event was odd. Not many people, don’t know if I arrived to an empty house or arrived after the other four people. No music or anything downstairs. They were just sitting quietly I guess, no bathroom downstairs. Half the party goes upstairs and turns the music up and the other two or three people just continue to sit quietly downstairs...

OP: How about when one of your best friends is accusing someone of sexual assault, names you as a witness, and you deny it?

Who are you talking about exactly?

There is only one person I could be talking about...

OP: A statement where if they lied is a federal offense...

Sure, a statement where she said she believed Dr. Ford. I don’t remember everyone I was at a party at in high school either

OP: A statement where she said she was never at that party and never met Kavanaugh...

A statement where she said she didn’t remember those things — but didn’t categorically state it was impossible. Like I said, I don’t remember all the people at parties I attended. If asked, I might say the same thing — I don’t remember meeting him or being at a party with him, but I believe my friend’s account

OP: Why say anything if you don’t remember? Why go above and beyond to say you never met the accused?

Good question, would be great to ask! Perhaps because you truly don’t remember meeting him... I was at a BBQ two weekends ago and don’t remember the names of several folks there already. In 20 years, I won’t even remember it having happened

Again, but why say any of that? Why put out any statement?

Because someone called and asked

Republicans 100% don’t want Judge to testify lol.

OP: And?? She could have easily ignored or declined to comment, or only say they don’t remember the party?

Yeah, my lawyer might have put it differently than I would have. Good point. We should ask her and every witness directly.

I’m really exhausted and feel that taking time off to recover might be treated like a failure to deliver :( and while I’ve been working way too hard, seems like I’ve not been able to network well to apply to newer roles. Any of you here that took time off from work to just recover and prepare for your exit? Tips please!
