SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Ford, has been revealed, and her attorney Debra Katz made some bizarre comments on CNN that raised a red flag for me as to Ford's credibility.

Katz stated on CNN that investigators should be responsible for proving Ford’s claim that Kavanaugh held her down and drunkenly groped her while at a party in high school. She also stated that it is not her client’s job to corroborate her claims. CNN’s Alisyn Camerota asked if Ford tried to talk to any of the other partygoers to see if they will confirm her story, but Katz declined to place the burden of proof on her client saying, “That’s not her job to do that. If this is going to be investigated, it should be done by investigators.”

These comments are very odd and evasive to me, and it tells me that Ford, the accuser, cannot ID some other party goers nor prove any of this ever happened.

Furthermore, Ford must identify others at the party so that the FBI can corroborate her story. I don’t care what her attorney says regarding “it’s not up to her to corroborate the story,” it is! Ford needs to help the FBI should they decide to investigate this allegation and if she has no information that helps investigators then game over. Ford told The Washington Post that there were four boys at the party and two in the room where she was allegedly assaulted, however, Ford's attorney stated that there was a girl at the party also, why was this left out in Ford's statement to The Post?

Another major issue is why did Sen. Feinstein and The Washington Post wait so long to reveal the letter? Feinstein knew about it when she was questioning Kavanaugh at the hearings, and she could have explained this then, why wouldn’t she? My theory is that the Democrats and The Washington Post colluded to not release the story until after the hearings so that they can try and impede his confirmation process on Thursday.

Ford had no problem identifying Kavanaugh, so she should have no problem identifying the other two boys and the girl at the party. Did Ford tell any of her girlfriends in high school the day after this occurred or ever? You would think she would have but as far as we know she has not.

Kavanaugh denied he was at such a party; he is a brilliant man knowing that Law Enforcement will probably track down other party goers to either corroborate or contradict his story. So, I’m confident Kavanaugh wouldn’t lie. Kavanaugh also has a witness, the other male, Mark Judge, named in the letter as being present when this occurred. Judge stated in an interview with the New Yorker that he had no recollection of this occurring.

Therefore, if Law Enforcement cannot substantiate Ford's allegation based on her statements and their investigation the case should be marked unfounded, and Kavanaugh should be overwhelmingly confirmed.
