Christine Blasey Ford deleted her social media posts – which were very much anti-Trump – before sending her letter accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual abuse. I don’t find this surprising at all. What I found surprising was that anyone bought into her fake accusations, to begin with. She couldn’t remember where the party was or when it was, to the point she couldn’t name the year. One thing I’ve noticed about real sexual assault victims is that they remember every detail of their assault, while Ford remembered none of them. She was caught in so many lies during her testimony that it made her accusations seem all the more fake.
It’s a significant discovery, then, that Christine Blasey Ford “completely scrubbed” her social media accounts shortly before coming forward with sexual assault allegations against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
According to the Washington Examiner, a recently released book titled “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court” reveals that Blasey Ford “deleted her social media profile weeks before she sent a letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein detailing the allegation.”
The Examiner notes that although Blasey Ford was portrayed by the establishment media as “politically moderate,” the book tells a different story.
Ford’s social media profile “had been notable for its extreme antipathy to President Trump,” and her political views “ran decidedly to the left and were at variance with most of her family’s,” the Examiner reports. The book goes on to record how Ford “regularly expressed hostility” toward Donald Trump and his administration.
Someone with that kind of animus against Trump could be motivated to embarrass the president and thwart his nominees by any means necessary. And motivation and bias is always relevant when making determinations of credibility.
