Federalist Writer and Fox Host Mollie Hemingway attacked Christine Blasey Ford yesterday.
Ford accused Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her as a teenager prior to the Senate Judiciary Committee’s vote to send his nomination to the full Senate for approval.
Christine Blasey Ford, a professor of psychology at Palo Alto University and a research psychologist at the Stanford University School of Medicine, publicly alleged that then-U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were both teenagers in 1982. Two other women, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick, later came forward to accuse Kavanaugh of separate past cases of sexual assault.
The nomination was then sent to the full Senate on an 11-10 vote.
Hemingway, a senior editor at the Federalist, in her book, Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court, wrote that “Female classmates and friends at area schools recalled a heavy drinker who was much more aggressive with boys than they were.”
The conservative author suggested that Ford was a sexually promiscuous teen and downplayed the seriousness of a sexual assault allegation.
