People are ‘just shocked’ when Blasey Ford’s attorney suggests she will not pursue allegations anymore

Following Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the high court Saturday, a report broke that one of his sexual assault accusers does not intend to pursue her case against him anymore.

“With the Senate voting to confirm Brett Kavanaugh as an associate justice of the Supreme Court, Christine Blasey Ford has no further plans to pursue her sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh, according to her lawyers,” Bay Area station KGO reported Saturday evening, citing a statement to CNN made a day earlier by attorney and left-wing activist Debra Katz.

“Professor Ford has not asked for anything of the sort,” Katz had replied Friday evening when asked by CNN host Dana Bash whether her client intends to assist with impeachment proceedings against Kavanaugh if the Democrats regain control of Congress during the upcoming midterms.

“What she did was to come forward and testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee and agree to cooperate with any investigation by the FBI, and that’s what she sought to do here.”

“She does not want him to be impeached?” Bash then asked.

“No,” Katz bluntly replied.

While it remains unclear whether this means Ford intends to drop the matter altogether, that appears to be how KGO interpreted her attorney’s remarks. Her own behavior lends credence to this theory.

Despite there being no statute of limitations on sexual assault allegations in the state of Maryland — where Ford claims Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her decades ago in high school — she’s never once reported the assault to local authorities.

Combined with Katz’ unexpected statement Friday, these facts have led many conservatives to believe Ford’s entire story was nothing but a political hit job aiming that preventing President Donald Trump from installing another conservative justice on the Supreme Court:

As noted by many, Ford’s disinterest in seeking justice against the man who had sexually assaulted her speaks volumes. So does the fact that she waited 36 years to bring the assault to the public’s attention.

“When something like this happens, others around you see something has changed within you and they keep pushing you until you tell somebody,” Debi Thornton, a sexual assault victim who was raped by three men when she was 15, said recently in an interview with The Resurgent.

“You don’t wait that long. Even if you don’t go to the police, you tell somebody,” adding that “Ford’s friends and family would have noticed a change in her behavior following the attack.”

Yet none of Ford’s family members or friends have copped up to having noticed any change in her behavior after Kavanaugh’s alleged attack. Nor has anyone even stepped up to corroborate her claims. Every corroborating witness Ford cited denied knowing anything about such an attack.

It’s like the alleged attack never happened, which to many explains exactly why Ford has no further interest in going after her alleged accuser:
