Longtime Harvard Law Professor and constitutional scholar, Alan Dershowitz said that Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual assault accuser when they were teens, Christine Blasey Ford, has a constitutional duty to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
According to the Daily Caller, Dershowitz said, “Nobody should be referring to her as a victim and him as a perpetrator until we hear from both of them under oath, subject to cross-examination. … There is nothing more essential to American justice than the opportunity to cross-examine your accuser, to confront your accuser. It is in the Constitution.”
He also dismissed the likelihood or legality of the FBI investigating Ford’s allegation. Dershowitz added, “There is not going to be very much the FBI can do. … “First of all, it is not an alleged federal crime. Second, the FBI doesn’t make credibility judgments – The FBI has no jurisdiction over this kind of thing.”
