Kavanaugh Accuser Christine Blasey Ford Wants FBI Investigation, Won’t Testify Before Congress
This is a farce and it needs to end now.
Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who is accusing President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in high school, just revealed she isn’t serious about her accusations.
Yeah, that’s right. I’m saying it plain and clear: Ford is not serious about these accusations and her latest admission suggests she should be regarded with extreme skepticism.
First, it was clear that Senator Dianne Feinstein, the lawmaker whom Ford initially confided in with her accusations, wasn’t taking them seriously. She has refused to cooperate with Republicans who have called for a specific testimony session to hear from Ford herself. Feinstein refused to participate in a call with Kavanaugh himself.

Feinstein and her fellow Democrats are now refusing to participate in the testimony session called by Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley. This, again, is a sinister tactic to delay this process and push back a confirmation vote on Kavanaugh until after the 2018 midterms.

If Democrats really believed Ford and her story, they’d demand more information about it as soon as possible. But they’re stalling. And we all know why.
Now, it looks like Ford is in on the game. She is refusing to give testimony, demanding an FBI investigation first.

Post has obtained Ford atty letter, which seeks “a full investigation by law enforcement officials [to] ensure that the crucial facts and witnesses in this matter are assessed in a non-partisan manner, and that the Committee is fully informed before conducting any hearing… “

This is a b.s. demand for one reason: Ford’s lawyer already said she’d testify. Now she’s going back on what her lawyer – who is paid to speak for her – said. (RELATED: Kavanaugh Accuser Christine Ford Agrees to Republican Wishes – Will Testify Before Senate Judiciary Committee.)
By agreeing to testify by proxy, and then walking it back, Ford has once again changed her story and what she’s willing to do to prove the assault occurred. This is unconscionable.
Also, if Ford made the allegations back in July, why didn’t she demand an FBI investigation then? If this warranted a federal investigation, why wasn’t she demanding it months ago? Again, the severity of Ford’s claims have changed. She claims she was sexually assaulted and it was serious. Yet she is only demanding the FBI step in now. It would seem her narrative just switched.
If Ford really wants justice, she would be helping the Senate Judiciary Committee to uncover every detail of her alleged assault. That she’s joining the Democrats in making a dubious demand for the FBI to get involved says a lot about her motivations.
I was willing to take Ford at her word before. I was willing to hear her out. But that was all predicated upon her testifying. Now that she’s not, I’m not just skeptical. I’m fed up: Confirm Kavanaugh now and end this spectacle.
