One issue that appeared to have been resolved in Sunday's hourlong phone call between Judiciary staff and Ford's lawyers was the committee's refusal to subpoena Mark Judge, the other person Ford alleges was in the room when the assault occurred. And yes, people might have had too many beers on occasion and people generally in high school - I think all of us have probably done things we look back on in high school and regret or cringe a bit, but that's not what we're talking about.
