Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her, cannot move back to her home due to the volume of death threats she is still receiving, her lawyers told NBC on Sunday.
One of Ford's attorneys, Debra Katz, told NBC's Kasie Hunt that it's going to be "quite some time" before Ford and her family can return home.
"Her family has been through a lot," Katz said. "They are not living at home. Its going to be quite some time before theyre able to live at home. The threats have been unending. Its deplorable."
"Its been very frightening," Katz added.
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's attorneys tell @kasie that Ford is still not living at home and can't for "quite some time."
She is still receiving "unending" death threats.
Kasie DC (@KasieDC) October 7, 2018 Ford two weeks ago publicly testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her allegation that Kavanaugh pinned her down and tried to take off her clothes, at one point allegedly pressing his hand over her mouth to prevent her from screaming, during a high school party in 1982.
Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court on Saturday after a bruising battle that also involved sexual misconduct allegations from two other women.
Kavanaugh vehemently denied all of the allegations.
Ford's lawyers during the NBC interview denounced the one-week FBI investigation into the women's accusations, saying it was not thorough. The FBI reportedly did not interview Ford or Kavanaugh as part of the probe.
Hunt asked Katz and Ford's other attorney Lisa Banks if they believe Ford was treated better than Anita Hill, the woman who publicly testified in 1991 about her accusation that then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas had sexually harassed her. Ford's allegations and her treatment were frequently compared to Hill's during the confirmation battle.
Hill's hearing was preceded by a three-day FBI investigation.
"With Anita Hill, there was a full FBI investigation before there was ever a hearing," Banks said. "That did not occur here. This process was far worse."
"We thought it was bad back in 1991, and it's even worse today, the political climate and how women are treated." - Dr. Ford's attorney Lisa Banks
Kasie DC (@KasieDC) October 7, 2018 Banks and Katz said Ford was "horrified" by President Trump's comments about her last week, during which he mocked Ford's testimony in an attempt to undermine her credibility.
"She was upset by it, yes, as any woman would be whos the victim of sexual assault who was mocked and belittled by anyone, never mind the president of the United States," Banks said.
Many Republican leaders who voted for Kavanaugh's confirmation, such as key swing vote Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), have said they believe Ford was attacked as a teenager but do not believe Kavanaugh was her assailant.
Banks on NBC said Ford "knows" who assaulted her.
"She testified she knew him, he knew her, and she knows exactly who sexually assaulted her on that day," Banks said.
Do you feel guilty Ford is getting deplorable death threats?
You should because you're deplorable.
I was wondering how the Ford Crew was going to drag this out.
Where’s the BS meter?
Death threats probably coming from Democrats disgruntled that her schtick didn’t work.
She can buy a new home with all of her gofundme money. Lying pays very well it seems.
I do not believe one word of it.
My take is that she and her family are going on extended vacations with the Go Fund Me money provided by the deep state.
Doubt it. Her other personalities are probably threatening the 5 year old we saw last week. She is writing herself letters.
Sounds like her Go Fund Me account isn’t big enough yet.
and where are the evidence of death threats? Or are you just gonna lie your ass about them and take a lie detector test (manipulated of course) like usual?
Call Officer Avenatti and report them bitch
Im sure Soros will just buy her a new house.
Lying under oath.
Why is she not charged?
Personally, I wouldn’t care if this crazy liar found herself living under a bridge and eating from dumpsters. Well, perhaps she would be better cared for and much safer once she is living in a prison, where she belongs.
Can she remember where here home is?
She could have kept her mouth shut.
She’s lying about the threats. No doubt she’s trying to score a few more hundred thousand in GoFundMe loot.
Cue Fats Domino singing “Ain’t That a Shame” . . .
CSI can never seem to trace the calls back to the perp. Odd isn’t it?
