The noise surrounding the controversy of allegations of sexual misconduct against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh has dwindled down since the Justice took his seat on the court. But on Friday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren brought the issue back into the spotlight with one simple tweet.
Christine Blasey Ford, who testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were young, announced this month she would be donating money given to her by supporters to help other trauma survivors.
‘Thank you, Dr. Ford” Sen. Warren tweeted Friday with t a link to a story covering the donation. “We still believe you.” Warren also added “#TrumpJudges.”

A GoFundMe set up for Ford raised $640,000 before Ford cut off the link, thanking supporters and promising to donate unused funds.
“Your donations have allowed us to take reasonable steps to protect ourselves against frightening threats, including physical protection and security for me and my family, and to enhance the security for our home.” Ford said in the GoFundMe update.
Ford and her family were displaced from their home long after her testimony ended.
While Democrats fought against Kavanaugh both for the allegations stacked against him and how he acted during his testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee, he was eventually confirmed by the Republican majority.
Warren was one of the most vocal senators in her opposition to the confirmation of Kavanaugh.
Not even a full week for an FBI investigation. A single copy of the report given to the Senate. Less than an hour to review. This is a complete sham. @SenateMajLdr McConnell said he’d plow Brett Kavanaugh through, and that’s exactly what the GOP is doing – no matter the cost.
