It’s time for a #StormChat ⚡️

Dr. Ford suffered doxxing, impersonation and death threats for coming forward with her story of assault.

FBI:Less than 2% of reports are FAKE. 98% are REAL. /1
When women are assaulted, what happens to the perp?
99.4% walk free.

310/1000 are reported to the police, 2% end up in jail. /2
Who is assaulting us? 70% of the time, it’s someone we know. Someone we have to see again at school, work, at church or at family gatherings /3 #WhyIDidntReport
Think we false report for fame and fortune? Go ahead and name Cosby’s accusers.


Yeah. That’s what I thought. /4
Here’s another graphic in case you missed the point.

Look at all the rapists who get off SCOT FREE compared to the false reports. I’m not saying false reports don’t happen, but if something is 98% accurate, your first impulse isn’t to disbelieve it, right?
Right?? /5
#WhyIDidntReport is full of reasons why women don’t come forward. It’s not as simple as a reporting a burglery. You are traumatized. You feel guilty and ashamed. You think you won’t be believed and unfortunately, you are right. /6

Survivors‼️ we must remember this. It’s not our clothes, the way we acted, how much we had to drink.

It’s 💯 the perpetrator, not the victim. /7 #WhyIDidntReport

During yesterday’s #TreasonSummitt, Putin offered to allow American investigators to interview the 12 Russian intelligence agents just indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller in exchange for allowing Russians to have access to @Billbrowder.

Why? Putin is scared of him. /1
.@Billbrowder is the person responsible for getting the Magnitsky Act passed in the United States in 2012. This is a law that allows the U.S. government to freeze assets and ban visas of human-rights violators around the world. /2
