Kavanaugh's Accuser Had No Social Media. Here's Why.

Christine Blasey Ford had no social media presence whatsoever after she came out with decades-old sexual assault allegations against aspiring Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Some found this revelation peculiar, given that 80 percent of all Americans have a social media profile.

After investigating further, two authors wrote a new book on the issue.

It is set for release next Tuesday. 

They found Blasey Ford "completely scrubbed" her digital footprint immediately before sending a letter alleging sexual assault to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).

The Daily Wire's Amanda Prestigiacomo reports:
 

Fox News contributor Mollie Hemingway and her co-author, Carrie Severino of the Judicial Crisis Network, suggest in “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court” that this social media history scrubbing have been done to cover up the accuser’s far-left politics and expressed "antipathy" toward President Donald Trump, who tapped Kavanaugh for the position on the highest court.

As reported by the Washington Examiner, the book outlines how Blasey Ford was portrayed by the media as “politically moderate,” even though “her acquaintances reported Ford’s profile on social media ‘had been notable for its extreme antipathy to President Trump.’”

“Additionally, her political views 'ran decidedly to the left and were at variance with most of her family’s,' and Ford's friends on Facebook said she 'regularly expressed hostility' toward the Trump administration, they said,” the Examiner noted, adding that Blasey Ford’s social media “was ‘completely scrubbed’ about the time Kavanaugh was tapped for the Supreme Court in early July 2018.”

Blasey Ford told Sen. Feinstein in a letter last year that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a house party, which was not specified, sometime in the early 1980s. The dubious claim was completely uncorroborated and the Senate Judiciary Committee ultimately found that there was "no evidence to substantiate any of the claims."
