The woman who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct has shared how now she is unable to go home as she has been slammed with daily death threats, according to Christine Blasey Ford’s attorneys.
In an interview on Sunday, Debra Katz, Ford’s lawyer, told MSNBC’s “They are not living at home, it’s going to be quite some time before they’re able to live at home. The threats have been unending, it’s deplorable.”
Earlier in the month, Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Panel where she made public about her allegations in an interview with The Washington Post.
Ford shared how Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed at a high school party in the 1980s, attempted to remove her clothes and held his hand over her mouth to the point that she was afraid for her life. After Ford came out with her experience publically, two other women stepped forward with their own allegations of sexual impropriety.
Kavanagh strongly denied the allegations. The now Supreme Court Justice claimed that Ford’s coming forward was “a calculated and orchestrated political hit fueled with apparent pent-up anger about President Trump and the 2016 election.”
Ford said she was very hesitant to come forward, stating that she was not in front of lawmakers “because I want to be.”
“I am terrified,” Ford shared. “I am here because I believe it is my civic duty to tell you what happened to me while Brett Kavanaugh and I were in high school. …I understand and appreciate the importance of hearing from me directly about what happened to me and the impact it has had only life and on my family.”
In a close 50-48 vote, Kavanaugh was confirmed on Saturday to the Supreme Court.
One of Ford’s attorneys, Lisa Banks, told MSNBC that Ford did not regret coming forward as she “still believes it was the right thing to do.”
President Trump sided with Kavanaugh throughout the entire process, going as far to mock Ford at a rally just after she shared her testimony.
Trump also apologized publically to Kavanaugh on behalf of the nation for all the “pain” Kavanaugh and his family had to endure during the process.
On Sunday, Ford’s lawyer said she was “horrified” at the president’s response and compared the situation to that of Anita Hill.
Anita Hill was a woman who publically testified against then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas.
“We thought it was bad back in 1991, and it’s even worse today, the political climate and how women are treated,” Banks said.
As you can imagine, many are divided on the issue but regardless of where you stand, not being able to live in one’s own home seems chaotic.
One commenter under the video below shared:
“Seriously, what has happened to this country when a brave woman testifies about a sexual assault & she/her family can’t live in their home due to death threats? What is wrong with these rabid Republicans & Trump cultists? Why doesn’t @GOP speak out against it?”
