Mark Judge, the man that Christine Blasey Ford said was in the room when Brett Kavanaugh allegedly sexually assaulted her in high school, issued a statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday maintaining that he has "no memory" of the incident and that he does not wish to testify publicly.

Why it matters: Senate Democrats have called on Judge to testify — both Ford and Kavanaugh will be testifying publicly Monday — given Ford identified him as a witness to the alleged sexual misconduct. The letter comes days after Judge denied the incident to The Weekly Standard in an interview. "It's just absolutely nuts. I never saw Brett act that way," he said.
