What do you think ..... As newly-confirmed Justice Brett Kavanaugh prepares to hear his first case this week, Christine Blasey Ford continues to receive an onslaught of death threats, the result of bringing sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh last month.
In a Sunday interview, Ford's attorney, Debra Katz, told MSNBC that the "unending" threats have left left Ford unable to return to the home from which she and her family initially fled three weeks ago due to safety concerns.
“This has been terrifying," Katz said. "Her family has been through a lot. They are not living at home. It's going to be quite some time before they're able to live at home.
"The threats have been unending," she continued. "It's deplorable. It's been very frightening."
In September, Ford's lawyers had cited the threats to Ford and her family in a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee to negotiate the terms of Ford's appearance before the committee's members. At the time, it appeared to Ford's team as though the committee planned on having Ford and Kavanaugh sit side-by-side at the same table in the hearing room.
"She has been the target of vicious harassment and even death threats," Ford's attorneys wrote in a letter to the committee's chairman, Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley. "As a result of these kind of threats, her family was forced to relocate out of their home. Her email has been hacked, and she has been impersonated online.
“While Dr. Ford’s life was being turned upside down, you and your staff scheduled a public hearing for her to testify at the same table as Judge Kavanaugh in front of two dozen U.S. Senators on national television to relive this traumatic and harrowing incident."
Ford knew something of what would await her if she came forward with allegations against the then-Supreme Court nominee.
“Why suffer through the annihilation if it’s not going to matter?” she told the Washington Post last month
