Christine Blasey Ford's testimony about Brett Kavanaugh is over, but her life may never return to normal.

Debra Katz, Ford's attorney, told MSNBC Sunday that her client is not living at home and won't be able to move back for "quite some time." Katz previously told the Senate Judiciary Committee that Ford and her family had been forced to relocate due to the "vicious harassment and even death threats" she received after alleging that Kavanaugh, who was confirmed to the Supreme Court on Saturday, groped her and attempted to rape her in high school.

Now, Katz says this harassment is continuing in full force. "The threats have been unending," she told MSNBC. "It's deplorable. It's been very frightening." At the same time, Katz said Ford has also received "extraordinary letters of support."
