Lawyers for professor Christine Blasey Ford gave some insight into how their client has fared in the days since her harrowing testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, saying that she is “horrified” at the jokes President Donald Trump has made at her expense and that she and her family have not yet been able to move home due to “unending threats.”

“Her family has been through a lot,” attorney Debra Katz told MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt. “They are not living at home. It’s going to be quite some time before they’re able to live at home. The threats have been unending. It’s deplorable. It’s been very frightening.”

On Trump’s mockery at a campaign rally, Katz said that Blasey Ford was “horrified.”

“She was upset by it, yes, as any woman would be who is the victim of sexual assault, who is mocked and belittled by anyone, never mind the President of the United States,” attorney Lisa Banks added.
