(fashion) Christine Blasey Ford received vile messages and death threats and was forced to hire 24-hour security after she claimed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh tried to sexually assault her, a new book has revealed.
Ford, a 52-year-old research psychologist and professor, drew national attention last year after she came forward with allegations following Trump's appointment of Kavanaugh.
In new book, She Said, written by New York Times journalists Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, who helped break the Harvey Weinstein story, the authors reveal Ford had to leave her home because of the harassment she received.
Weeks before she was due to testify at the confirmation hearing, Ford received a chilling message saying: 'you’ve got three months (to live).'
Another said: 'You lying f***ing c**t!'
Christine Blasey Ford claimed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh tried to sexually assault her in high school after he was appointed last year

'The lawyer told Ford she was right to be frightened by the messages and encouraged her to share them with the FBI,' the authors write.
'Others repeated similar phrases and sounded like they might have come from the same voice-altering machine, making her think they were somehow coordinated.
'"Don't be messing with my boy, Brett". "Don't be messing with my boy, Trump".'
The mother-of-two from Palo Alto, California had already been seeing a PTSD specialist because of the traumatic incident in 1982, and even had a second front door installed at her home because she felt she needed it to escape, the book states.
The book, which was released on September 10, has been likened to All the President's Men, the expose of the Nixon administration, only for the MeToo era
Ford had claimed 17-year-old Kavanaugh held her down on a bed at a party when she was 15 and tried to remove her clothing, putting his hand over her mouth to stop her screaming.
Her emotional testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last September became a milestone for the #MeToo movement.
It turned Kavanaugh's confirmation into the most controversial since Clarence Thomas in 1991, who was accused of sexual harassment as well.
After Kavanaugh's name came up as a potential nominee, Ford felt a 'rising panic', and texted her friends, the book states.
