DiGenova: Ford 'Doesn't Want to Testify' For She'll 'Look Like the Loon That She Is'

The attorneys for Chistine Ford, who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her 36 years ago in high school, are now raising objections about the scheduled hearing for this Thursday because a sex-crimes attorney may question Ford and this doesn't seem "fair and respectful" toward Ford, they claim

They are hinting at the possibility that Ford may not show up on Thursday and may not testify, a decision that was predicted by former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova last week when he said Ford's requests were "another delaying tactic" because she does not want to testify for it will make her "look like the loon that she is." He added that Ford's lawyer "is even loonier."

On Tucker Carlson Tonight, Sept. 18, the host asked diGenova about what Ford's lawyers were demanding, particularly an FBI investigation of something that allegedly happened nearly 40 years ago. 

DiGenova, an attorney and former Independent Counsel, said there would be no FBI investigation. 

"No, this is utter nonsense," he said.  "This is another delaying tactic. She  really doesn't want to testify because when she does, she's going to look like the loon that she is. She may very well believe everything she's saying and that is one of the signs of lunacy, believing something that isn't real. But her lawyer is even loonier."

"The FBI is not going to investigate a non-federal matter of an alleged assault which is unconfirmed by even the witness herself," said diGenova. "She's not sure when it happened, where it happened, who else was present. She never reported it to anybody."

He added that the  FBI cannot conduct such an investigation "because she does not know when it happened, where it happened, and who else was there. Judge Kavanaugh has already categorically denied it. There's no useful evidence to be served by interviewing him."

"It cannot be investigated because there is nothing to investigate," said diGenova.

When asked what he would advise to Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, diGenova said he would urge them to hold a vote on Kavanaugh as they promised.

Asked if they would do so quickly, diGenova said, "Oh God, no. They're scared of their own shadow practically right now. But Kavanaugh is going to be confirmed now because this is clearly a desire to delay the proceedings even further. The FBI is not going to investigate this, and they have said that they will not."
