Christine Blasey Ford Found Trump's Mocking ‘Very Hurtful,’ Lawyers Say

As Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court appeared to become all but certain Friday night, lawyers for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford told CNN’s Dana Bash that their client did not regret bringing her sexual assault allegation forward against the nominee. “I don't think she has any regrets. I think she feels like she did the right thing,” Lisa Banks said. “And this was what she wanted to do, which was provide this information to the committee so they could make the best decision possible. And I think she still feels that was the right thing to do, so I don't think she has any regrets.” Asked by Bash what Ford, who recalled the “uproarious laughter” at her expense during last week’s hearing, thought when she saw that President Trump had openly mocked her at a campaign rally this week, Banks added, “It was very hurtful, as it would be to any woman. Any survivor who had the courage to come forward only to be mocked and belittled by anyone really, but certainly by the president of the United States, it was very upsetting. It was very hurtful.”
