She does backtrack but if you read between the fine print:
“That it happened or not, I have no idea,” Cristina King Miranda told NPR’s Nina Totenberg.
“I can’t say that it did or didn’t.”
Miranda’s new statement directly contradicts her Facebook post, in which she wrote,
“The incident DID happen, many of us heard about it in school.”
“In my post, I was empowered and I was sure it probably did [happen],” Miranda told NPR this morning.
“I had no idea that I would now have to go to the specifics and defend it before 50 cable channels and have my face spread all over MSNBC news and Twitter.”
I guess where I'm going with this, is that this lady claims that she heard about it at the time, and now she is being grilled to death about it and does not want the spotlight (I don't think it necessarily means she is lying). If what she claims is true, that many heard about it in school, there should be more character witnesses. I guess where there's smoke, there is fire.
"She later posted on Facebook: "To all media, I will not be doing anymore interviews. No more circus for me. To clarify my post: I do not have first hand knowledge of the incident that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford mentions, and I stand by my support for Christine. That's it. I don't have more to say on the subject. Please don't contact me further."
Her story contradicts what Ford herself said. Ford said it was during the summer....school was out. So....how did this lady hear about it in school exactly?

Since when is grabbing a titty considered rape and why does everyone now equate such as being equal?
The claim is that she was on a bed and he was on top groping her and someone tackled him.
That is not rape and i have seen no reports that she ever told him NO.

The only thing I can add is for those talking about the polygraph. Polygraphs can be easily beaten if under the influence of narcotics. Smoke a joint before the test and pass.

Maybe not rape so much but certainly ''sexual assault''. This IS a crime. Just as a ''pecker grab'' is a ''sexual assault''. For that matter even a ''butt pinch'' by either sex.
