Sen. Hirono: ‘I Believe Dr. Ford’ Because ‘She Makes a Very Credible Case’

‘It is really difficult for someone to come forward in this way’

EXCERPT:

HAYES: "Do you — have you come to a conclusion about the allegations? Do you believe Dr. Blasey or do you believe Judge Kavanagh?"

HIRONO: "I believe Dr. Ford as I refer to her because she makes a very credible case. It is really difficult for someone to come forward in this way. Why should she destroy her life? Already there are efforts to cast aspersions on her credibility, to look into her family, all of that. This is really very much like what happened with Anita Hill where she was vilified, she was called names. This cannot happen to Dr. Ford."
