"As a result, the attorneys ostensibly representing Ford may have breached their client's trust and violated their ethical responsibility to act in her best interests. They may instead be motivated primarily by a desire to block President Trump's appointment of a conservative justice to the nation's highest court.

Ford's understandable hopes for protecting her privacy were dashed when her letter to Feinstein describing the alleged assault was leaked to the media in violation of her wishes. Still, Ford was reluctant to appear at a public hearing. She feared becoming the target of smears and threats. "
