Just about everyone could see through the shoddy allegations Dr. Christine Blasey Ford made against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh last year — and now there’s even more proof that it was all one giant lie.
In an exclusive video obtained by the Daily Caller, Ford’s lawyer, Debra Katz, was caught on camera admitting that it was all a stunt to bring down Kavanaugh.
Katz says in the clip that putting “an asterisk next to” Kavanaugh’s name before “he takes a scalpel” to Roe v. Wade was “part of what motivated” Ford to speak out.
The video was first reported by Ryan Lovelace for his new book, “Search and Destroy: Inside the Campaign Against Brett Kavanaugh,” which shows Katz speaking at the University of Baltimore’s 11th Feminist Legal Theory Conference in April.
“In the aftermath of these hearings, I believe that Christine’s testimony brought about more good than the harm misogynist Republicans caused by allowing Kavanaugh on the court,” Katz says in the video.
“He will always have an asterisk next to his name,” Katz continues.
Katz adds: “When he takes a scalpel to Roe v. Wade, we will know who he is, we know his character, and we know what motivates him, and that is important; it is important that we know, and that is part of what motivated Christine.”
“A lot of people ask if Christine Blasey Ford was lying,” Lovelace told the DCNF.
“To know that, you have to know her motivation,” the author continued. “Since she has not talked to me directly, the best way I can understand what she is thinking is by what her lawyer is saying. And her lawyer says that she is motivated, at least in part, by Roe v. Wade protecting legalized abortion.”
This contradicts what Ford testified before Congress back in September when Kavanaugh had not yet been confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
“Before the confirmation, Ford had maintained that she came forward out of a sense of civic duty to provide information that she thought senators needed to know before voting on Kavanaugh,” Lovelace wrote in “Search and Destroy.”
Ford’s own lawyer is on video admitting that she essentially only came forward with her allegations so that it would harm Kavanaugh and muddy the waters if the Supreme Court ever took on Roe v. Wade, the landmark case that made abortion legal in the United States.
Ford alleged that Kavanaugh groped her at a high school pool party around 1982.
When grilled and pressed for any evidence to support her claims, Ford couldn’t find anyone or anything to substantiate her shoddy allegations.
After delaying his confirmation hearing a week to appease Democratic lawmakers, the FBI conducted a supplemental background check at the time and found that there was no support for the allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh.
The U.S. Senate confirmed Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court by a vote tally of 50-48.
Kavanaugh was able to survive an all-out smear campaign and has a lifetime appointment on the nation’s highest court.
