THREAD: Let me ask you something. If a woman came forward and said that she was sexually assaulted in the summer of 1982 when she was 15 by one boy, with a second in the room egging her on, and to corroborate her claim she pointed to small portions of notes from a therapist 1/
2/ which said that she described a "rape attempt" in her LATE teens that involved 4 boys AND in her first text describing the attempted rape, the women said it happened in the mid-80s, what would you think? That the notes did NOT corroborate her account. But Ford has tricked
3/ everyone into ignoring the differences in dates (82 is not MID-80s) and age (15 is not LATE-teens) and to assume that Ford was telling her therapist about the supposed Kavanaugh attempt. BUT in her handwritten note before the polygraph she crossed out "early" before 80s. WHY?
4/ Well Ford testified she later figured out that it was summer of 1982 b/c she knew she wasn't driving at the time and always drove once she got her license. (BUT how since she doesn't know how she got home?) BUT why would she go into detail with therapist and convey late-teens
5/ And two things bothered me about Ford's testimony (well more than two but two things the connect up to this point). Ford DWELLED on the Safeway connection and Mark Ford. So much so that she raised it in a portion that made no sense and was forced. She was asked if her note
6/ to Feinstein was accurate & corrected two things and then said oh, but look, I ran into Mark Judge at Safeway about 6 - 8 weeks AFTER attack and you can look at when he worked there to narrow down the date of the attack. Now that made no sense to me. Had a couple threads on
7/ that earlier. HOW would that narrow it down. She KNEW (supposedly) it was in summer of 82 and Mark Judge would have presumably worked at the store for some time so how would you know which day she ran into him. And then 6 - 8 weeks back? Come on, that doesn't help AT. ALL.
8/ Since w/o an actual date no one can figure anything out any better than early summer which is what she had seemed to say. And then she bothered to tell that whole story about going in a separate door than her mom. Why? So mom couldn't confirm. AND she mentioned Safeway
9/ not once as a way to figure out the date BUT 5 TIMES! And 2 Dems picked up on her point too. WHY? Not too narrow the time frame down--wouldn't really do that. BUT to seem to corroborate her testimony that the attack happened in 1982 when she was 15, by 1 boy & 1 bystander.
10/ AND not in the mid-80s when she was in her late teens by 4 boys as the actual therapist's records say! And how would Ford know that tying Mark Judge to working at the grocery store would set time in summer of 1982?
11/ His book said so! So now everyone is focused on Safeway and when Mark Judge worked there. And when it comes back 3 weeks in July or August of 1982, everyone will be walking 6-8 weeks backwards from there and ignoring conflict in therapist's records. Don't believe me? Look
12/ how Ford's Safeway testimony has been reported: Judge's book validates Ford's timeline! BUT Ford's attorneys refused to turn over therapist's records which record what Ford told therapist and that was attack in mid-80s when in her late teens & 4 boys!…
13/ And that timeline makes more sense with what Ford said in her testimony: That the worst part was the first 4 years after the attack. And what did she mention then? Her time at college! NOT her junior and senior years in high school!! Which brings me to the second point
14/ that connects up and that bothered me. Ford had gone to her therapist's office to get copies of her records BEFORE contacting the Washington Post to see if what she said was recorded in there. But Ford said she was only concerned re Kavanaugh in early July & texted Washing.
15/ post on July 6 when she PHYSICALLY had copies of her records after going to office to get. Why? To see what the records said! But what else is in the records, we don't know. What we do know that is in there is much different than her current claim. Records say: late teen
16/ by 4 boys. Ford says: 15 by 1 boy & 1 bystander. Apparently, that's close enough for government work, when you're a Democrat! But no one is really focusing on this disparate but instead asking if Safeway had one or two doors in 1982! (It had 2-I've confirmed w/ sources).
17/ Ford's been Gaslighting America! "Oh, look Safeway, Mark Judge worked there in 1982 and that was 6 - 8 weeks after Kavanaugh attempted to rape me..." And the hounds are chasing the red herring and accepting as fact that attack she spoke of in therapy occurred in 1982 even
18/ though the therapist's notes do NOT support her claim. FBI needs to find out when Ford picked up docs at therapists and then GET. THE. DAMN. THERAPIST'S. RECORDS. END.
