Christine Blasey Ford


Christine Blasey Ford on the cost of speaking out

In 2018, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, a university professor and mother of two, accused then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of assaulting her at a party while both were in high school. After her televised testimony, the allegations stirred a hornet's nest of controversy, and brought death threats to Ford and her family. Now, Ford has written a memoir, "One Way Back," about her experience speaking out. She talks with correspondent Tracy Smith about the costs of going public; the responses she received from survivors of sexual assault; and how she has no regrets for her decision.


New details on FBI's Kavanaugh investigation

The FBI revealed new information on its sexual misconduct investigation into Justice Brett Kavanaugh before his confirmation to the Supreme Court. In a letter sent to two Democratic senators, the agency said it received more than 4,500 tips on the then-judge in 2018, but only the "relevant" ones were sent to the Trump White House, and it's not clear what happened after that. Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied allegations of sexual misconduct. Jan Wolfe, legal affairs correspondent for Reuters, joins CBSN AM to discuss.
