Christine Blasey Ford could possibly come under investigation after her lawyer exposed a possible political motive.
GOP Sen. Thom Tillis said a new investigation into Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations of sexual misconduct against Justice Brett Kavanaugh may be appropriate in light of a new book suggesting she had political motives.
The North Carolina Republican, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Fox News that new video of Ford’s lawyer connecting her allegations with the broader fight over abortion rundermines Ford’s credibility and could necessitate the Justice Department’s intervention.
“This does seem to undermine what we all believed was a legitimate traumatic experience in her life,” Tillis said. “We’ll just let the process play out. But clearly, a misrepresentation before a Senate committee is a very serious offense. Hopefully, we can get past that.”
“We have to always make sure that when people come and give sworn testimony before any congressional committee that it’s truthful and accurate,” Tillis added. “Any time that you see something like this, it’s probably worth looking into.”

An investigation into Blasey Ford needs to happen. I would love to figure out a little more about Blasey Ford and what exactly her motives were. We also need to find out more about what exactly happened with the claim that Blasey Ford might have accused the wrong person.
President Donald Trump told reporters on Saturday he was “a hundred percent” certain that Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, had got the wrong man.
Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court by a razor-thin margin Saturday afternoon, securing 50 votes in the Senate. He was sworn in later that evening in a private ceremony.
“This is one of the reasons I chose him is because there is no one with a squeaky clean past like Brett Kavanaugh. He is an outstanding person and I’m very honored to have chosen him,” Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One en route to a campaign rally in Topeka, Kansas.

The left wanted Brett Kavanaugh to be investigated so I think it is only fair to make sure that Blasey Ford and her lawyer weren’t just playing politics with these allegations.
