Ahead of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, a suspicious note was left for the liberal professor in the hearing room. Here’s what the handwritten message said.
According to the New York Post, a mysterious, handwritten “good luck” note was left for Christine Blasey Ford in the Senate Judiciary Committee’s hearing room ahead of her Thursday testimony. “Good luck, Dr. Ford,” read the note left Wednesday on the witness table where Ford testified about her allegations of being sexually assaulted by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in the 1980s.
Just hours until one of the most anticipated Senate hearings in decades, someone has left a message for Christine Blasey Ford.
It’s unknown who left a note that says, “Good luck, Dr. Ford,” on the witness table where the California professor will testify about accusations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh — who is also set to testify on Thursday.

An aide initially told ABC News that committee Chairman Chuck Grassley left the note — penned on Senate stationery — but his staffers later said that wasn’t true.
Indeed, it seems far more likely that the note was penned by one of the Democratic members, as if to say, “Good luck, Dr. Ford. You’re our last hope at stopping the confirmation of President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick.” And, after all, that is what this has been about from the very beginning. It has never been about getting to the truth. It has always been about stopping Kavanaugh by any means necessary.
The Democrats knew Ford’s story was impossible to prove from the getgo. That’s why Sen. Diane Feinstein held onto the professor’s letter for six weeks before making her accusations public on the eve of Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Feinstein had ample opportunity to confront Kavanaugh before then — the judge had participated in 65 different meetings with Senators and sat for hours and hours of testimony, but Feinstein never brought up Ford’s allegations during any of those opportunities to address them.
Yes, this has always been about stopping Kavanaugh’s confirmation. It was a political charade from the very beginning. Without legitimate means of thwarting President Trump’s Supreme Court pick, the Democrats unleashed sexual assault claims they had held onto for weeks prior. That, in and of itsef, is enough to prove that this is no more than political theatre.
Furthermore, the note left for Christine Blasey Ford in the Senate is a perfect example of the difference in the way she has been treated, versus the way Judge Kavanaugh has been treated. Was there a similar note wishing Kavanaugh “good luck” with his testimony? Of course not. There should have been, though.
After all, Kavanaugh is the one who stands to lose everything in this debacle. Not Ford. She has an army of people behind her who believe her story — even without a shred of evidence — and who have crowd-funded hundreds of thousands of dollars for her “cause” — whatever that is.
