Kavanaugh accuser’s lawyer says it’s ‘not her job’ to corroborate claims. Interview loaded with red flags.

Debra Katz, the attorney representing Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her 36 years ago in high school, apparently believes a person is guilty until proven innocent.

Turning the very essence of our legal system on its head, Katz declared that it’s not her client’s job to corroborate her very serious allegation.

Appearing on CNN — naturally — the attorney rejected the notion that the burden of proof rests with her client.

“That’s not her job to do that. If this is going to be investigated, it should be done by investigators,” Katz said.

The assertion was in response to Katz revealing there was another girl at the party in question, where a 17-year-old Kavanaugh, allegedly, in a “highly inebriated” state, held Ford down and groped her.

“While we have you, perhaps you can help us fill in the blanks on some of her story,” CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota said. “She says that she was at a party in probably 1982 in Montgomery County, Md. She says that there were four guys there, these are high school students, as was she. There were four guys there. Were there any girls there that day?”

“Yes, there was another girl at this party, yes,” Katz revealed.

It was when Camerota asked if Ford tried to corroborate her story by talking to the other partygoers that the attorney said her client doesn’t have to proof her claim.

Katz did say Ford is willing to testify — the Senate will be holding a hearing Monday in response her story, so she’ll soon get that chance.

The reaction online suggests if a woman is out to destroy a man’s life with a serious allegation like this, you’d better believe she should have to prove it.
