Christine Blasey Ford has still not been able to return home due to the volume of death threats she has received since she accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, her lawyers said.
Ford was forced to leave her home with her family on September 16, she told the Senate Judiciary Committee. She then said her “greatest fears have been realized.”
Ford had hesitated to put her name to the allegations, telling The Washington Post that she feared upending her life while leaving Kavanaugh’s confirmation process unaffected.
Kavanaugh repeatedly denied the allegations, and was confirmed as a Supreme Court Justice on Saturday after an FBI investigation.
Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyers said that she has not been able to live in her own home due to the “unending” death threats that she still receives after alleging then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault in high school.
Debra Katz, one of Ford’s attorneys, told NBC on Sunday that it will be “quite some time” before Ford and her family can return home.
“Her family has been through a lot,” Katz said. “They are not living at home. It’s going to be quite some time before they’re able to live at home. The threats have been unending. It’s deplorable.
“It’s been very frightening.”
