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.

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.
