The reason Republicans are giving for not subpoenaing Brett Kavanaugh’s high-school buddy and alleged sexual assault accomplice, Mark Judge, is his delicate psyche. According to the letter that Mark Judge sent the committee, the letter in which he said he had never seen the Supreme Court nominee act in the ways that Dr. Ford alleged, that he suffered from anxiety, which is why he didn’t want to testify.
As I stated in my attorney [sic], Barbara Ven Gelder’s September 18, 2018, letter, I did not ask to be involved in this matter nor did anyone ask me to be involved. We have told the Committee that I do not want to comment about these events publicly. As a recovering alcoholic and a cancer survivor, I have struggled with depression and anxiety. As a result, I avoid public speaking. […]
I am knowingly submitting this letter under penalty of felony.
In 1997, Judge wrote a book about his addiction issues and his “reckless youth,” in Wasted: Tales of a Genx Drunk. Here’s the promotional copy.

Because here's proof that the substance of the last letter judge sent is a blatant lie:

Mark Judge is failing his recovery.
