Christine Blasey Ford testified before the Senate.
She spun a tale about Brett Kavanaugh trying to rape her in high school.
But when she was done, a reporter pointed out the one fact that caused her story to fall apart.
Christine Blasey Ford Testifies
Ford testified on Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
She faced questions from Rachel Mitchell, who was hired from the Maricopa County prosecutor’s office, and ten Democrats.
The ten Democrats tossed softballs or made long speeches about her bravery.
They wasted their time.
Democrats wanted Ford to answer as few questions as possible.
But one Democrat did ask questions.
Illinois Democrat Dick Durbin asked Ford about a theory that a conservative activist named Ed Whelan had floated.
He wondered if Ford had perhaps mistook Kavanaugh for another attacker.
Durbin pressed her on this point.
“In Judge Kavanaugh’s opening testimony – which we will hear after you leave, this is what he says: I never had any sexual or physical encounter of any kind with Doctor Ford,” Durbin began.
He continued, “I am not questioning that Doctor Ford may have been sexually assaulted by some person, at some place, at some time.”
“Last night, the Republican staff of this committee released to the media a timeline that shows they have interviewed two people who claim that they were the ones who actually assaulted you. I’m asking you to address this new defense of mistaken identity directly,” Durbin droned on.
“Doctor Ford, with what degree of certainty do you believe Brett Kavanaugh assaulted you?” Durbin asked.
“100 percent” Ford responded.
A Reporter Points To Giant Hole In Ford’s Story
Ford’s claim was just not believable.
In her opening testimony, she stated she would not be able to provide answers or exact details about her story.
“I don’t have all the answers, and I don’t remember as much as I would like to. But the details about that night that bring me here today are ones I will never forget. They have been seared into my memory and have haunted me episodically as an adult.”
Observers noticed the gaps in the story.
They held them up as evidence that she was not credible.
Ford presented no evidence to back up her story.
She admitted she could not remember significant details about the 1982 party or the events leading up to it.
That’s why so many people found it odd that she definitively remembered it was Kavanaugh who attacked her.
Benny Johnson of the Daily Caller tweeted:
We learned today that Ford cannot remember:
– Time/date/location of party
– Who drove her to party
– Who was at the party
– Who pushed her into the room
– Who drove her from the party
– Date/who paid for her polygraph
– Grandmother’s funeral date?
But “100% sure” it was Kavanaugh 36 yrs ago
Ford’s story was already collapsing going into the hearing.
Her testimony cemented the fact that she was not a credible accuser.
