Look … I’m a survivor of a savage sexual assault, so I’m the last one to blame the victim. But in this case, it certainly looks like there’s a LOT of cause to be highly skeptical about Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation.
First, there are both the timing and the target. Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley says,
“Republicans have only known this person’s identity from news reports for less than 24 hours and known about her allegations for less than a week. Senator Feinstein, on the other hand, has had this information for many weeks and deprived her colleagues of the information.”
“The standard procedure for updates to any nominee’s background investigation file is to conduct separate follow-up calls. That would entail phone calls with Kavanaugh & Ford. I asked Feinstein’s office to join me in scheduling these follow-ups. They have refused.”
“Dr. Ford’s attorney could have approached my office, while keeping her client confidential and anonymous, so that these allegations could be thoroughly investigated.”
Second, there are the dozens of women who say the Brett Kavanaugh they have known for years and years would never do such a thing.
- Kavanaugh absolutely denies the assault ever occurred.
- The only other witness says the assault never occurred.
Third, right before shedding her anonymity, Blasey Ford deleted all her social media accounts so she would appear to be non-political, when in fact she has been a long-time, far left political activist.
Fourth, Brett Kavanaugh’s mom ruled against Christine Blasey’s parents in a court case.
