The woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault came forward with her explosive allegations on Sunday, saying the supposed attack “derailed me substantially for four or five years” and claiming that the episode rendered her “unable to have healthy relationships with men,” FOX NEWS reports.
The woman, Christine Blasey Ford, is a professor at Palo Alto University, according to The Washington Post, which published her account on Sunday. Her decision to go public has capped a whirlwhind week that began when Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., sent shockwaves through Washington by announcing she had sent the FBI information about Kavanaugh she received from an anonymous accuser in July. It’s also threatened to upend Kavanaugh’s confirmation, as top Democrats call for a full investigation.
“It’s disturbing that these uncorroborated allegations from more than 35 years ago, during high school, would surface on the eve of a committee vote after Democrats sat on them since July. If Ranking Member Feinstein and other Committee Democrats took this claim seriously, they should have brought it to the full Committee’s attention much earlier. Instead, they said nothing during two joint phone calls with the nominee in August, four days of lengthy public hearings, a closed session for all committee members with the nominee where sensitive topics can be discussed and in more than 1,300 written questions.”~ Grassley, R-Iowa
Christine Blasey Ford and the blunt truth facts that will help you decide, witch hunt or truth:
- Ford is a Registered Democrat
- Signed a letter with other health professionals demanding that President Donald Trump stop his controversial policy on family separations at the border. She signed the letter as Christine Blasey, and it was used as an exhibit in an ACLU lawsuit against the Trump administration.
- Christine Blasey Ford Was One of 5,000 Health Experts Who Demanded That Trump End Family Separation at the Border Immediately
- Ford Claims Kavanaugh Groped Her & Tried to Take Her Clothes Off Against Her Will & She Says She Thought He ‘Might Inadvertently Kill Me’
- Ford does not recall exactly who owned the house, how she came to be at the house, or how the gathering was arranged. She remembered only that the house was in Montgomery County, near a country club, and that parents were not present.
- She claims she escaped when Kavanaugh’s friend, Mark Judge, jumped on top of them. She locked herself in a bathroom and then ran out of the house.
- Judge strongly denied the allegations on Friday, when they were anonymous, saying the claims were “just absolutely nuts” and insisting that “I never saw Brett act that way.” After Ford went public on Sunday, Judge repeated his denial.
According to Ford, she went to couples therapy in 2012 and told her therapist about the incident, The Washington Post claims it received parts of the notes from that couples therapy session, which note Ford talking about an attack from “an elitist boys’ school”, attackers who were “highly respected and high-ranking members of society in Washington.” What kind of therapist would break the client-patient confidentiality act by sending their notes to a newspaper?
Then one must wonder why did Ford contact Feinstein of all people and after all these years decide to now come out with these allegations? Why did Feisnstein keep the “letter” hidden until the last minute when it looked as if Kavenaugh was going to be voted in?
On Sunday, before Ford’s name came to light, Louisiana Republican Sen. John Kennedy said he was embarrassed for Congress by the unsubstantiated accusations of decades-old sexual misconduct leveled at the Supreme Court nominee.
“So far, it’s pretty much been an intergalactic freak show,” Kennedy, a member of the judiciary committee, told Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.” “Most Americans are looking at this – most mainstream Americans – and they’re thinking that Congress has hit rock bottom and started to dig.”
More than five dozen women came forward Friday to defend Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh against an alleged high school incident, calling President Trump’s pick for the high court “a good person.”
