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:
She could file a simple police report and have a thorough criminal investigation.

So let’s just forget about it now that he’s going to be on Supreme Court?
Either it happened and it ruined her life and she wants to pursue it to the end of the earth. Or it was a false accusation and she lied under oath.

GEE. WHAT A BIG SURPRISE. #FordIsAFraud She should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for lying under oath.

Because it was all an act of sabotage to block GOP nomination until the midterms. #EpicFail

So she’s not going to do what she could have done at any point in the last 36 years, i.e. go to law enforcement. Don’t know about you, but I’m not surprised.

This was a smear campaign that was highly orginized by elected democrats and deep state actors. https://t.co/r7qhZA8GWP

She never had any plans but to obstruct!

Of course because it never happened!

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:
Strange how she only wanted justice once he was nominated for the Supreme Court, and she stopped seeking justice the moment he was confirmed. I mean it's almost as if this was all a political hit job and nothing more. Weird! https://t.co/TkaoQktH7i

So she won’t tell the police about it but wanted an FBI investigation and a senate hearing because it meant that much to her. At this point everyone now knows it was all just done for political reasons so the Democrats could gain which makes Christine Ford an absolute monster

Nothing says Political Smear than withdrawing accusations after the confirmation.
She and her handlers need to be prosecuted.

This is obscene, it was just a disgusting political hit job. The Democrats are not pro-women, they are anti males.

That is because she knows it wasn’t him.. This whole ordeal was political stunt. Democrats have destroyed the entire Me too movement
— William Tow (@Will_Tow_qb) October 6, 2018
It clear she did this for political gain, despicable

Whole thing was fabricated for political motives, how sad.
