Christine Blasey Ford, the university professor from California whose allegations have placed Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination in possible jeopardy is hardly the impartial victim that she is being portrayed to be by Democrats and the mainstream media.
Not only is Ford a registered and contributing Democrat but her attorney is a lifelong defender of sexual predators like Bill Clinton and former senator Al Franken.
Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California revealed at the 11th hour of the Senate vote for Kavanaugh there was a then-unnamed woman who claimed to have been assaulted while both were in high school. When she questioned him during his hearing earlier this month, she said nothing of these allegations. Democrats were quick to call for new hearings and a postponement of the vote set for September 20.
Since the Washington Post outed Ford as the unnamed woman, neither she nor her lawyer has responded to repeated attempts by the Republican-led Senate Judiciary Committee and committee Chairman Chuck Grassley about appearing a hearing. That hearing is set for September 24 in which both Ford and Kavanaugh have been invited to answer questions from that committee.
In an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, Grassley said: “We have reached out to her in the last 36 hours, three or four times by email, and we’ve not heard from them. So it kind of raises the question … do they want to come to (the) public hearing or not?”
The White House has responded to Feinstein and other Democrats to sabotage the President’s nominee by encouraging a quick and open opportunity for both parties to tell their story before the Senate.
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Ford’s allegations should be heard. She said on Monday morning’s Fox and Friends:
“Allowing this woman to be heard in sworn testimony, allowing Judge Kavanaugh to be heard in sworn testimony about these specific allegations would be added to the very considerable mountain of evidence and considerations that folks will have when they weigh whether or not to vote for judge Kavanaugh to be on the Supreme Court. So, let me make very clear. I have spoken with the president. I have spoken with Sen. Graham and others. This woman will be heard.”
Now there is a question whether Ford wants to be heard in the same forum Bret Kavanaugh has endured for days on end.
As students of Professor Ford speak out and her own history becomes clearer there may be a good reason she wishes Feinstein had never made her name public. Ford is a progressive Democrat who attended a women’s march protesting Donald Trump. There may also be a personal vendetta involved as Kavanaugh’s mother, also a judge, once ruled on a foreclosure case involving Ford’s parent’s home.
Debra Katz, Ford’s attorney told NBC’s ‘Today Show’ that her client is willing to do “whatever it takes to get her story forth.” She also insisted that her client’s letter to Feinstein is not a politically-motivated action. She was reluctant to come forward. And she was outed after she had made the decision not to come forward.”
But this is where the narrative begins to fall apart. Ford has not been “more than willing” and the only the other person who she claims witnessed the event three decades ago denies having any knowledge of the night in question.
Moderate Republican Senator Susan Collins questioned the timing the revelation saying:
“What is puzzling to me is … why didn’t they surface this information earlier so that he could be questioned about it? And if they didn’t believe her and chose to withhold the information, why did they decide at the 11th hour to release it?”
Add to Ford’s baggage the fact that she chose Debra Katz as her attorney. When Paula Jones came forward claiming to have been assaulted by Bill Clinton, Katz dismissed her assertions saying they were very weak. She also defended Al Franken, saying he should not resign from the Senate.
There is no doubt, there is political motivation and it’s time for Dianne Feinstein to apologize.
