If Christine Blasey Ford wants to be taken seriously as a whistleblower on Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual predation, she’s already put herself at a major disadvantage by choosing Debra Katz to be her lawyer:
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.https://t.co/MBZiN1nBjn

More from the Daily Caller:
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.
During the interview, Katz revealed that there was another girl present at the party, which allegedly took place in 1982 while Kavanaugh was attending Georgetown Prep. Ford previously told the Washington Post that there were four boys at the party but never indicated if there were other girls beside herself.
[Alisyn] 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.
“That’s not her job to do that. If this is going to be investigated, it should be done by investigators,” Katz asserted.
And how, pray tell, are “investigators” supposed to prove Ford’s case when the alleged attempted rape was supposed to have happened several decades ago and there’s no forensic evidence of any kind?
"Let's go back to the scene of the crime!"
"We don't have one."
"Ok. Gather the witnesses."
"We just have one. He says it didn't happen."
"Well, were the 2 people in the same area at the same time?"
"Not sure. We don't have an exact date or location."

Seriously what law school did she attend so I can make sure I never use a lawyer from there …

Maybe not, but she put the accusations forward because she wanted them to impact his life and his chances of being confirmed. If people are going to push for those consequences, corroboration is required. https://t.co/hptN4R7NHc

Any Law student knows that the burden of proof is the accuser's. #ConfirmKavanaughNow

We thought that went without saying.
That pretty much says it all, total BS

Say what? You want to destroy a reputation without corroboration?

WOW. Seriously??? So she doesn't have to corroborate her allegations & she doesn't know when it happened or what location either? F it then. Just have the vote & stop this farce.
