Christine Blasey Ford says she would ‘do it again’ in reflecting on testifying against Kavanaugh – Washington Examiner

Christine Blasey Ford said Tuesday that she would still testify against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh when reflecting on her testimony in 2018, noting that the aftermath was “survivable.”

Ford was promoting her new book recounting her testimony and accusations against Kavanaugh when she was asked about testifying on live television. The college professor said she was not notified until she was about to give her testimony that it would be nationally broadcast, resulting in her and her family having to leave their home for over three months.

Despite this, she said she would still give her testimony if she could go back and do it again, even though it was “the worst thing ever.”

“It was terrible afterward for a couple of years. I had a couple of very bad years, but I survived it,” Ford said on The View.

Sara Haines, one of the co-hosts of The View, noted how there are some people still skeptical over Ford’s story against Kavanaugh, asking her if she had been prepared for this type of response when giving her testimony. Ford did not directly answer this question, instead stating she was prepared for none of the Republican lawmakers to speak to her.

The topic of Ford’s testimony was once again discussed on social media in the wake of her Tuesday interview, with several users pointing to how the FBI’s supplemental background investigation found no corroboration with her allegations. Ford’s father, Ralph Blasey, had also privately spoken favorably of Kavanaugh throughout the Supreme Court confirmation process.

That’s probably because the FBI found no evidence. None of the witnesses she named corroborated the story. Her own father supported Kavanaugh’s confirmation. And her lawyer admitted protecting Roe v. Wade was their primary concern.

Christine Blasey Ford’s best friend at the time (Leland Keyser) – alleged to have been present at the assault – refused to corroborate her story.

There were thus no witnesses and not a shred of evidence – just the word of a Dem activist.

There was 10x more evidence that Tara…

Ford’s memoirOne Way Back, focuses on her allegations against Kavanaugh, in which she claims he groped her during a gathering at a house in suburban Maryland in 1982. Kavanaugh has denied these accusations and was nominated to the Supreme Court during then-President Donald Trump’s term.

Ford currently works as a psychology professor at Palo Alto University and the Stanford University School of Medicine in California.
