Far-left Christine Blasey Ford accused Judge Kavanaugh of of sexually abusing her some 36 years ago. However, her story is quickly being debunked. Here is a complete list of her misrepresentations to date.
It’s important to understand that the accusations from Ford are more than 36 years old. Senator Lindsey Graham was on Hannity and he noted –
It’s a 36-year-old allegation, its a serious allegation and everyone needs to be heard but also people need to defend themselves. I’m going to look at what she said about Brett Kavanaugh in high school and compare that to everything else I know about Brett Kavanaugh, including his denial and I will make the decision. Here’s what I want your audience to know: If Ms. Ford really did not want to come forward, never intended to come forward, never planned to come forward, why did she pay for a polygraph in August and why did she hire a lawyer in August if she never intended to do what she is doing? And who paid for it?”
After Graham notes that he was a prosecutor and judge he said this –
This case could not before a criminal court because it’s too old. No lawyer would bring it as a civil suit because it’s too hard to prove. The question for the Senate is, is there really enough evidence here given the nature of the allegation, how old it is and the uncertain nature of it?
In addition to the points above from Senator Graham, we also know that the FBI will not investigate Ford’s accusations. Even Senator Feinstein who unveiled the charges, admitted on Tuesday that she “can’t say that everything is truthful” about the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh brought forth by far-left activist Christine Ford.
On Monday CNN released the letter from activist Christine Blasey Ford to Senator Feinstein — dated July 30, 2018, WEEKS BEFORE Feinstein released the documents.
July 30 2018
Dear Senator Feinstein;I am writing with information relevant in evaluating the current nominee to the Supreme Court. As a constituent, I expect that you will maintain this as confidential until we have further opportunity to speak.Brett Kavanaugh physically and sexually assaulted me during high school in the early 1980’s. He conducted these acts with the assistance of REDACTED. Both were one to two years older than me and students at a local private school.The assault occurred in a suburban Maryland area home at a gathering that included me and four others. Kavanaugh physically pushed me into a bedroom as I was headed for a bathroom up a short stair well from the living room. They locked the door and played loud music precluding any successful attempt to yell for help.Kavanaugh was on top of me while laughing with REDACTED, who periodically jumped onto Kavanaugh. They both laughed as Kavanaugh tried to disrobe me in their highly inebriated state. With Kavanaugh’s hand over my mouth I feared he may inadvertently kill me.From across the room a very drunken REDACTED said mixed words to Kavanaugh ranging from “go for it” to “stop.”At one point when REDACTED jumped onto the bed the weight on me was substantial. The pile toppled, and the two scrapped with each other. After a few attempts to get away, I was able to take this opportune moment to get up and run across to a hallway bathroom. I locked the bathroom door behind me. Both loudly stumbled down the stair well at which point other persons at the house were talking with them. I exited the bathroom, ran outside of the house and went home.I have not knowingly seen Kavanaugh since the assault. I did see REDACTED once at the REDACTED where he was extremely uncomfortable seeing me.I have received medical treatment regarding the assault. On July 6 I notified my local government representative to ask them how to proceed with sharing this information . It is upsetting to discuss sexual assault and its repercussions, yet I felt guilty and compelled as a citizen about the idea of not saying anything.I am available to speak further should you wish to discuss. I am currently REDACTED and will be in REDACTED.In confidence, REDACTED.
Feinstein held on to this letter since July and never raised the issue until last week after days of testimony in front of the Senate. Judge Kavanaugh adamantly denied the accusations.
Ford stated that she was abused by Kavanaugh at a party when in high school some 30 plus years ago. Kavanaugh stated that he wasn’t even at the party in question. Two women who dated Kavanaugh have come out and supported him calling the accusations false and not consistent with the Kavanaugh that they knew. Friends of Kavanaugh also spoke out in his support.
A report at USA Today noted that individuals who are abused often never forget details surrounding their abuse but Ford has problems with her recollection –
Ford can’t remember the year the incident happened, she can’t remember how she got to the house party, or how she got home. She told no one about it at the time and the issue came to the forefront during a couples therapy session six years ago. Her therapist’s notes never mention Kavanaugh and actually mention four boys involved, although she says there were only two.
The USA continued –
It is right to take her [Ford’s] claim seriously, it is also right to take the testaments to Judge Kavanaugh’s character seriously. They have flooded in from countless women who’ve known him since high school and college — including some who dated him back then. Women who’ve worked for him as law clerks, women with whom he’s worked in government service. Women who run the length of the political spectrum, praising his exemplary professional and personal life in letters to the Judiciary Committee, public statements, and guest commentary pieces in multiple media outlets.
Supporters of Kavanaugh are rightly infuriated this charge has been leveled at the 11th hour. Ford initially wanted to remain anonymous, as she told ranking Judiciary Committee member Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) back in July. Feinstein didn’t act on the allegations for almost two months, which means she either didn’t find them credible or she plotted to cause this chaos by holding onto them on the eve of his committee confirmation vote.
She didn’t bring it up to Judge Kavanaugh when she met with him privately her office, it wasn’t raised in his 17,000 page questionnaire, she didn’t raise it during two full days of public hearings — or a private session afterward to discuss his background, she didn’t raise it any of the nearly 1,300 follow-up questions he had to answer after the hearings.
With the numerous conflicts, and challenges in her recollection and timing of the event, Ford’s story has fallen apart. This case won’t be brought up in a criminal court because it is too old. It wouldn’t be brought up in a civil case due to lack of clarity regarding the situation and being inconsistent with what we do know about Kavanaugh. It shouldn’t be brought up in the Senate either.
The Senate should move forward and confirm Kavanaugh.
