In order to prove guilt, the accuser must act. The burden of proof rests on the accuser. If you are unable or unwilling to prove your case, then you should not make the accusations.
Now Senator Kirsten Gillibrand makes an insane claim. Is someone instructing her to say these things? Gillibrand claims that Republicans are trying to silence Brett Kavanaugh's accuser Christine Blasey Ford, by asking her to testify.
A Fox News interview is not the same as an FBI interview.
If Brett Kavanaugh really wants a “fair process,” we need the FBI to conduct a full investigation to establish the facts, including interviews with corroborating witnesses. pic.twitter.com/k0GXgdX6aA

Per CNS News:
Giving Christine Blasey Ford the opportunity to testify about her unsubstantiated accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is, somehow, silencing her, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) declared Wednesday night.
Refusing to launch an FBI investigation into Ford’s claims is also “silencing her,” Sen. Gillibrand said in a tweet:
“Denying Dr. Ford an FBI investigation is silencing her. Forcing her into a sham hearing is silencing her. And pushing through Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation is silencing her.”
So to go back over things, Ford has some vague memories of some groping that may or may not have happened 35 years ago. So the FBI is supposed to take her at her word over some foggy memories of 35 years ago? That's not the way it works.
The crazy thing is so many people believe her despite very little proof and details. Is it because she is a woman? The Democrats might be surprised to hear that the FBI performs background checks. They do not just take people for their word without checking.
Check out some of the responses on Twitter:
Here are the facts: The people she names dispute everything she claims, she can’t remember the exact time, she can’t remember the exact place, she’s a known democratic supporter, she has liberal lawyers and senate leaders backing her every lie, etc... PISS OFF K.G. #liberalass

Are you watching this shit? I mean, I’m not a fan of Kirsten Gillibrand after the BS she pulled on Al Franken, but they are painting w/a pretty broad brush. Republicans had this info about Kavanaugh&sat on it then tried to “plough through” the confirmation. Dems pushed back...BFD

It is a lowlife thing to be raising campaign funds from this Kavanaugh issue. I am a lifelong progressive but based on your openly craven political moves, I won't be supporting you in any future national elections.
