Lawyer Joe diGenova appeared on Tucker Carlson Tonight where he claimed Christine Blasey Ford did not want to testify about her allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh because “when she does, she’s going to look like the loon that she is.” DiGenova is a frequent guest on Fox News and earlier this year was announced as an addition to Donald Trump’s legal team in the special counsel investigation before “conflicts” prevented him joining the president’s defense.
Carlson asked diGenova, the former United States Attorney for the District of Columbia, about Christine Ford’s latest demands.
“This is utter nonsense. 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 that 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 that is unconfirmed by even the witness herself. She’s not sure when it happened, where it happened, who else was present. She never reported it to anybody.”
“But her lawyer is even lunier,” he continued. “The FBI is not going to investigate a non-federal matter of alleged assault which is unconfirmed by even the witness herself.”
DiGenova concluded: “This is nothing.”
