Bullying Rape Victims


The Progress Report, Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Last night, attorneys for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford made a simple request: the professor is willing to testify publicly, but she wants the FBI to do its own standard investigation to establish the common facts first.
This is a more-than-fair request, especially in light of Dr. Blasey Ford’s offensive treatment at the hands of Senate Republicans, including members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Senate Republicans are trying to bully Dr. Blasey Ford into a partisan process aimed at discrediting her story and exonerating Judge Kavanaugh.
But Trump and Senate Republicans balked, telling Dr. Blasey Ford that there would be no investigation, there would be no other witness allowed, and that if she doesn’t show up on Monday, then they don’t care about her.
Why are Republicans trying to rush through the nomination of a man who has been credibly accused of sexual assault? Maybe it’s because public support for Brett Kavanaugh is at an historic low, and sinking.
According to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll, 36% of polled adults said they did not want Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court. 33% of women respondents oppose his confirmation.
Dr. Blasey Ford submitted to and passed an FBI polygraph test. Yet, Senate Republicans are once again making it clear they have no interest in uncovering the truth—at the expense of sexual assault survivors and of our country.
We asked yesterday whether Republicans could meet even the dismally low bar of giving Dr. Blasey Ford the same treatment that Anita Hill got more than 25 years ago. Well, the FBI investigated Hill’s claims—and Republicans are blocking even that step.
