Garrett could be a key figure in the FBI’s investigations into the allegations against Kavanaugh. Last week, he was mentioned several times in testimonies by Kavanaugh and his accuser, California professor Christine Blasey Ford.
According to Kavanaugh's calendar, which was submitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee, Garrett is listed as attending a July 1, 1982 party in the Maryland suburbs outside of Washington, D.C., along with Mark Judge, Patrick Smyth, Tim Gaudette, Tom Kaine and Bernie McCarthy. In her testimony, Ford alleged that Kavanaugh sexually and physically assaulted her at a party in the Maryland suburbs in the summer of 1982 at a small gathering that Judge and Smyth attended. Kavanaugh has denied those allegations.
CNN reported that the FBI is focusing on that July 1, 1982 party and the friends who attended it. The Washington Post reported that the party is the focus of lawmakers' concerns.
Ford said that she "went out with" Garrett and he introduced her to Kavanaugh. Garrett attended Georgetown Prep with Kavanaugh and was also on the football team with him, according to the Washington Post. He is noted on Kavanaugh's calendar many times, often under the alias of "Squi."
According to the calendar, Kavanaugh and Garrett spent a lot of time together in 1982. They went to Washington Bullets and Baltimore Orioles games together, played basketball, went to Garrett's beach house in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, saw Rocky III and went to St. Michael's together, a small town on Maryland's Eastern Shore.
Garrett, along with other alumni of Georgetown Prep, signed a July 9 letter of support for Kavanaugh. He lists that he is also a debate coach at Atlanta Academy and lives in Avondale Estates.
According to online property records, Garrett has lived in DeKalb County since 2000.
Atlanta Academy is a private school on Holcomb Woods Parkway in Roswell. Costs to attend the school range from $10,000 to $23,000 per student, per year. In 2017, it was named as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.
In a Sept. 26 letter to U.S. senators Charles Grassley and Diane Feinstein, Sullivan wrote, “Mr. Garrett has no knowledge or information relating to (Ford’s) claims.”
