Remember the second door that Christine Ford said she couldn’t live without because of trauma? Well, renovation documents show exactly what that door was installed for. If the documents are true, you guessed it, installing the second door has nothing to do with Kavanaugh.
Christine Ford is the first accuser of Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. She accused Kavanaugh of groping her and holding her down at a high school party some 36 years ago. According to Ford one of her longlasting traumas she has suffered from that unfounded event is that she cannot sleep anywhere that does not have at least two doors in a room.
She called the doors at her personal resident an ‘eyesore’ but said they we necessary in order for her to feel safe. Ford also clarified that the door was used to access an area she rented out to Google interns. However, the original renovation records show that the door was added to create a marriage counseling office for her private practice at home.
“The door was not an escape route but an entrance route,” said an attorney familiar with the ongoing congressional investigation. “It appears the real plan for the second front door was to rent out a separate room.”
The discrepancy raises fresh doubts about Ford’s candor and credibility amid other inconsistencies, congressional and other knowledgeable sources say, including her purported “fear of flying.” Ford initially refused to submit to an interview with the committee because of an alleged airplane phobia, but investigators established that she had taken a number of flights back East this summer, and had previously flown to Hawaii, Costa Rica, French Polynesia and other South Pacific islands, Real Clear Investigations revealed.
Palo Alto city records show that a building permit for an additional room and exterior door was issued to Ford and her husband on Feb. 4, 2008 — more than four years before the May 2012 therapy session where, she says, she first identified Kavanaugh as her attacker.
All the remodeling, including a new bathroom, was completed by February 2010. The only additional permits issued to Ford at her Palo Alto address are for “solar panels” on the roof, a “solar hot water system” in the garage, and an “electric vehicle charge station” for the driveway — all of which were issued after 2012.
