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 video obtained released last week, 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.
“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 while speaking at the University of Baltimore’s Feminist Legal Theory Conference in April.
“He will always have an asterisk next to his name,” Katz continued.
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.”
Fox News’ Senior Legal Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said that Katz admitting that her client’s accusations were politically motivated caught could result in jail time for Ford.
False, politically-motivated accusations — especially when they are made on such a big stage about a Supreme Court nominee — could seriously mean jail time.
Napolitano said he was shocked that Katz “would talk about the motivations of her client” and said the Department of Justice could soon open an investigation.
“What’s the worst-case scenario here — did she make this whole story up?” Napolitano asked. “That would be perjury and probably conspiracy.”
“Others might have been involved. Does the Justice Department want to investigate this? Or is this just a lawyer saying ‘you know, we lost this, he is on the court. We don’t like him,” he said.
Napolitano’s comments quickly went viral and gained the attention of GOP Sen. Thom Tillis, who later told Fox News’ Harris Faulkner that the remarks may, indeed, warrant the opening of a formal investigation into perjury and conspiracy.
“I think it’s worth just checking off the facts,” Tillis said. “We had a number of people on the other side of the aisle undermining the credibility of the [Senate Judiciary] committee by threatening to expose information that was committee confidential.”
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.
Kavanaugh was able to survive an all-out smear campaign and has a lifetime appointment on the nation’s highest court.
