As Twitchy told you earlier, a woman named Cristina King Miranda claimed in a tweet (which she subsequently deleted) that she knew both Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford and remembers people talking about the alleged incident in school “for days” — despite Ford saying that she never told anyone about the incident when it happened:

Miranda later said that she wasn’t sure she was “interested in pursuing” the matter any further. And then — and then — she offered up this attempt to “clarify”:
