MURPHY STATEMENT ON TESTIMONY OF DR. CHRISTINE BLASEY FORD

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) on Thursday released a statement on the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

“In her appearance today, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was composed, thoughtful, and credible. She clearly did not want to be here, but she set aside her misgivings and faced life-changing consequences because her civic duty demanded it,” said Murphy. “I cannot fathom how any senator could see that and want to continue rushing forward without a full investigation. This is a lifetime appointment – it will weigh heavily on all of our lives for decades. We must take the time to gather the facts. The only reason to take a vote before a thorough investigation is to remain purposefully ignorant of the truth.”
