Kavanaugh Accuser's Lawyer: 'Not Her Responsibility to Prove Claims'
You've no doubt heard about Brett Kavanaugh's accuser claiming he got handsy with her back in the Reagan years. How convenient of the claims to surface just before the Senate's vote on Brett.
Well, the accuser's lawyer is making the rounds on the networks. CNN's Alisyn Camerota asked her if she was going to make any attempts to back up the claims.
Her response was pure bullhickey:
Debra Katz, the attorney for the woman accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, said that it is not her client’s job to corroborate her claims.
Katz said on CNN on Monday that investigators should be responsible for proving Christine Blasey Ford’s claim that Kavanaugh held her down and drunkenly groped her while at a party in high school.
Camerota asked if Ford has tried to talk to any of the other partygoers to see if they will corroborate her story, but Katz declined to place the burden of proof on her client.
Yep, we should jump straight to Kavanaugh's crucifixion and hope the evidence pans out later. After all, it's not the accuser's responsibility to provide proof. Just one thing:
Contrary to Flatty McFlattop's claims, the burden of proof is on the accuser. Such a mind-boggling rule, I know. Seeing as there are already details surfacing which call her claims into question, I'm guessing the reluctance to provide evidence is purposeful.
Call me a loopy wearer of Reynolds' wrap, but it seems like the left's goal here is merely to delay Kavanaugh's confirmation vote. As of right now, the vote is still set for Thursday, so we'll see how long these accusations stay in the news after that. Meanwhile, we're going to need more proof before we break out the 'ol cross and nails.
While we're talking confirmation hearings:
