You might think the Kavanaugh hearings and the assult on his character were over, but they ramifications are still ongoing.
Even today, calls are growing to investigate the role of Christine Blasey Ford, after new allegations have surfaced that her testimony was politically motivated.
Here's more, from Newsweek:
video circulating on social media shows Christine Blasey Ford's attorney telling attendees at a feminist conference that her client's testimony against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was a politically motivated move to protect Roe v. Wade.
Conservatives are railing against comments attorney Debra Katz made in April in her keynote address at the University of Baltimore's Feminist Legal Theory Conference regarding Kavanaugh's controversial Supreme Court confirmation process. Katz represented Ford, who testified at a public hearing and accused Trump's nominee, at the time a U.S. Court of Appeals judge, of sexually assaulting her 36 years prior while the two were in high school. Katz's comments at the conference appeared to confirm many conservatives' accusations that Ford's testimony was intended in part to protect the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that established abortion access as a constitutional right.
Speaking on the theme of "Applied Feminism and #MeToo" earlier this year, Katz told attendees: "In the aftermath of these hearings, I believe that Christine's testimony brought about more good than the harm misogynist Republicans caused by allowing Kavanaugh on the court."
The self-proclaimed "women's rights and social justice activist" continued: "We were going to have a conservative [justice] ... Elections have consequences, but he will always have an asterisk next to his name. When he takes a scalpel to Roe v. Wade, we will know who he is, we know his character, and we know what motivates him, and that is important; it is important that we know, and that is part of what motivated Christine."
The Republican-controlled Senate ultimately voted to confirm Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court in October, but not before Ford and other women came forward with damning accusations. Two other accusers, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick also alleged separate instances of sexual assault by Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh responded to the accusations in his own testimony at the confirmation hearing and claimed Senate Democrats and the media were on a "search and destroy" mission to prevent him from joining the country's top court. A supplemental FBI investigation into the sexual assault accusations was unable to verify the allegations made by Ford.
