New Report Claims Blasey Ford’s Friend Was Threatened to Corroborate Christine’s Story

Christine Blasey Ford named a friend who could corroborate her story against Brett Kavanaugh.

That person was apparently threatened with a smear campaign if she didn’t corroborate properly.

Isn’t that called blackmail?

More from The Federalist:

The authors also acknowledge what had previously been reported in “Justice on Trial,” about the efforts of mutual friends to get her to change her testimony to be more supportive of Blasey Ford. The reporters say that some of Blasey Ford’s friends “had grown frustrated with Keyser. Her comments about the alleged Kavanaugh incident had been too limited, some of them felt, and did not help their friend’s case. Surely, given what a close friend Keyser had been, she could say more to substantiate Ford’s testimony and general veracity, even if she could not corroborate Ford’s more specific memories.”

A group text was formed in which friends such as Cheryl Amitay and Lulu Gonella discussed how to get her to say something more helpful to the cause. An unnamed man on the text suggested that they defame her as an addict. Keyser has been in recovery for some time, as her friends know and as has previously been reported.

Christine Ford’s lawyer Debra Katz says putting “an asterisk” next to Kavanaugh’s name in case Kavanaugh attacked Roe v. Wade “is part of what motivated Christine.”

Sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, the woman who asked the majority of questions for Republicans during Ford’s testimony before the Judiciary Committee, appears to have completely exonerated Kavanaugh.

As noted by Jacob Wohl, “Rachel Mitchell finds Ford’s allegations totally suspect, potentially fraudulent.”

Kind of a big deal.

Mitchell notes: “The activities of congressional Democrats and Dr. Ford’s attorney’s likely affected her account.”
