Joe DiGenova: Dr. Ford a deeply troubled person with history of psychological discord…I felt sorry for her

Prominent Washington lawyer Joe DiGenova, the former US attorney for the District of Columbia, questioned Christine Blasey Ford’s emotional well-being, insisting that she was “used and abused” by Senate Democrats in their unprincipled opposition to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Appearing on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” the former federal prosecutor said: “Dr. Ford is a deeply troubled person. She has a history of psychological discord.”

“She had a very terrible life at Holton-Arms, it’s a very serious problem,” DiGenova continued. “She went to the West Coast for one reason — she had so many problems in that school that they sent her away. She is a very sad woman.”

Holton-Arms School is the all-girls academy Ford attended, which neighbors all-boys Georgetown Prep, where Kavanaugh went to high school.

“I felt very sorry for her today because of the way the Democrats used her and abused her,” DiGenova added. “But I felt more sorry for the daughters and the wife of Brett Kavanaugh.”

DiGenova did not offer anything to support his claim of Ford’s psychological discord, but in her testimony Thursday, Ford said that she has suffered post-traumatic stress disorder and struggled academically and socially after the alleged incident. She was also seeing a therapist.

Real Clear Investigations did report that Ford “wasn’t exactly a choir girl.”

Citing a Senate Judiciary Committee staffer, who said they had Ford’s Holton-Arms yearbooks, which featured a photo of an underage Ford attending at least one party, complete with a caption boasting of girls passing out from binge drinking.

And while the GOP wisely chose not to attack Ford’s character, the staffer said, “She will not make a good witness.”

More from RCI:

Other evidence indicates Ford, a popular cheerleader at the time, was immersed in an alcohol-fueled party culture and no stranger to “keg parties” in the D.C. area — or the “bar scene” along the Maryland and Delaware coast. In fact, Ford was known as a “party girl” on the Delaware shore during summer breaks, another source with direct knowledge of the congressional investigation said.

One report, moreover, recounts how Ford once got caught in “a romantic triangle” at Dewey Beach that ended with the two men getting into a fistfight over her.

At Holton-Arms, the source added, she was known by classmates, and even some parents, by a sexually derogatory nickname playing off her maiden name Blasey, suggesting she was promiscuous.

 

All of which seems to support DeGenova’s assertion that she “had so many problems in that school.”

RCI shared another interesting point about Ford.

“Neither her parents nor her two siblings have come out to voice support for Ford, and they did not sign a family letter of support for her and her claims circulated by her husband,” the news source reported.
