[Ed. – Fine, but what of it? First of all, Ford could find no one — absolutely no one — to corroborate her story. Second, Mrs. Trump is entitled to her opinion.]
A new book says that first lady Melania Trump told her husband she thought Christine Blasey Ford was lying when she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee against now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
“You know that woman is lying, don’t you?” Melania Trump told President Trump, according to “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court” by conservative authors Mollie Hemingway, a senior editor at The Federalist, and Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy director of the Judicial Crisis Network.
Hemingway and Severino, whose book comes out Tuesday, use the first lady as an example of an under-reported storyline in the news media — that “millions of other women and men” didn’t believe Blasey Ford, the authors said.
The accuser gave tearful testimony amid Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation hearings about a sexual assault that she said she suffered at the hands of the future justice, when they were teenagers. The Senate confirmed Kavanaugh to the bench the next week.
