Kirsten Gillibrand Suggests Ford Hearing Would be 'Silencing Her'

Just when it seemed that Judge Brett Kavanaugh was as impeccable as Republicans knew him to be, despite the Democratic Party scrutinizing his entire life, Sen. Dianne Feinstein came forward with a bombshell accusation that he had sexually assaulted a woman in high school. Dr. Christine Blasey Ford claims that Kavanaugh was intoxicated and forced herself on him while a friend covered for him by increasing the volume of the music so that no one could hear her scream. She sent the letter revealing these shocking crimes to Sen. Feinstein in late July.

“What?” cries the sensible reader. “The Democrats had evidence that could derail Kavanaugh in late July and sat on it until September?” You would be forgiven for finding this unusual. Aside from the fact that rape allegations against Senate-pending officials are hard to keep quiet, one would think that the Democrats would not waste such an opportunity, whether it was credible or not. After all, sexual assault allegations against President Trump during the election hit the airwaves practically before the accusers were finished telling their stories, and most of them turned out being bologna anyway.

This is the first of many reasons that most Republicans are skeptical of Ford’s accusations. Second is that the accusatory letter was initially anonymous, at least as far as the public was concerned; it was several days after the story broke that an actual person was matched with the paper victimhood Feinstein presented to the Senate. This is also unusual; typically, a victim would immediately be held out as a hero, an innocent sullied by the hands of Republican misogyny, the very second that their accusations were made public.

There have also been reports by multiple news outlets that Kavanaugh’s mother ruled against Ford’s parents in a foreclosure case, that Ford’s lawyer has ties to the DNC and possibly Fusion GPS (who were responsible for the infamous “Steele dossier” shenanigan), and that Ford’s therapist (in whom she confided after a sexual assault in her teenage years) makes no mention of Brett Kavanaugh and mentions four people rather than two, along with failing to fully line up with Ford’s already-incoherent (inconsistent at best) account of her trauma at Kavanaugh’s hands. I myself am not a psychologist, nor do I play one on television, but many on Twitter who have had similarly terrible experiences agree that, if nothing else, Ford would remember the year that it happened. Yes, she has claimed she does not know what year it was. This is in addition to testimony from Kavanaugh’s classmates, including 65 women, who have denied that such an accusation is possibly true.

Now that you have that context, measure it against the statements by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (affectionately called “a talking pile of human garbage” by Twitchy blog) that Dr. Ford speaking to the Senate about Kavanaugh would be “a sham hearing” and that she should not do so, which is odd, since Democrats want all women to come forward and have the chance to speak about the abuse they have suffered (except Keith Ellison’s ex, apparently). Gillibrand further stated that testifying to the Senate would be “silencing her” (which makes about as much sense as the Orwellian “War is peace,” as one Twitter user pointed out).

Although the Republican-controlled Senate seems more than willing to hear Dr. Ford’s sworn testimony, despite odd requests that no lawyers speak to her and Kavanaugh be removed from the room, Sen. Gillibrand would rather her accusations be taken at face value. Many of Twitter’s critical thinkers seem to agree that the accusations are manufactured to target and derail Kavanaugh (and some reporters have alleged it to be a deliberate plan to prevent Trump from filling another SCOTUS seat). It is worth noting that any inaccuracies on Ford’s part before Congress would be perjury and carry criminal consequences, which anonymous or proxy accusations are not limited by. Gillibrand’s efforts to disrupt both proceedings for Kavanaugh and Ford amount to nothing more than a political hoodwink. Yes, Sen. Gillibrand, on behalf of Ceccpoint News, I call shenanigans.
