Dr. Christine Blasey Ford Speaks Up About Judge Brett Kavanaugh Sexual Assaulting Her
By this point in time, you should be familiar with the two names Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford.
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has accused Judge Brett Kavanaugh, while they were both in high school of sexual assault. When this accusation came to light Kavanaugh was chosen by President Trump to be nominated as a Supreme Court Justice. This is a position that Kavanaugh will hold for life and one of the most important positions in government.
Members of the Senate have questioned Kavanaugh and Ford during what essentially is Kavanaugh's interview for the Supreme Court Justice job.
“I will not be intimidated into withdrawing from this process,” Kavanaugh wrote in an open letter to the Senate “The coordinated effort to destroy my good name will not drive me out . . . The last minute character assassination will not succeed.”
In a letter of her own, released shortly after Kavanaugh’s, Ford tells members of the Senate “while I am frightened, please know that my fear will not hold me back from testifying.”
Ford told the world during the hearing that she is 100 percent certain that Kavanaugh attacked her. Her voice broke as she told her experience at that house party in 1982 with Kavanaugh and as she called him, "the boy who sexually assaulted me." She described how Kavanaugh and his friend trapped her in a bedroom where Kavanaugh pinned her to the bed as he tried to remove her clothes.
"They were having fun at my expense. I was underneath one of them while the two laughed."
Kavanaugh, who has denied the allegations, testified after Ford. He told Senators that he's not questioning whether Ford "may have been sexually assaulted by some person in some place at some time."
"But I have never done this to her or to anyone," he said. "That’s not who I am. It is not who I was. I am innocent of this charge.”
Ford knew she would be gaining nothing but public ridicule by coming forward with her accusations.
“The decision to report the assault to my congresswoman, Rep. Anna Eshoo, was a difficult one, but I felt it was something a citizen couldn’t NOT do. I have one motivation in coming forward—to tell the truth about what Mr. Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge did to me.”
Instead of wanting to seem innocent Kavanaugh seemed to be casting himself as a victim and complaining about how unfair it was that he was even being questioned about any of this.
Whether the Senate thinks Kavanaugh committed the crime he will most likely become Supreme Court Justice. These allegations against Kavanaugh are already too many to qualify him for any job let alone Supreme Court Justice. But white male privilege trumps over everything. It seems as though Kavanaugh believes he’s entitled to the Supreme Court seat. It is that white male privilege that will allow him to hold one of the highest positions in America even after these allegations (and Ford is not the only one who accused him of sexual assault).
