Ex-boyfriend casts doubt on Ford’s testimony about Kavanaugh-created 'trauma’

Ex-boyfriend casts doubt on Ford’s testimony about Kavanaugh-created 'trauma’

Still, I didn't want to believe that Ford, a well-respected member of academia, would knowingly destroy a man's life over false allegations, so my initial reaction was to blame her attorneys. McLean spoke to CNN after a sworn declaration questioning the veracity of Ford's testimony was leaked to Fox News after being provided to the Judiciary Committee. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has already issued a response. But Ford said in last Thursday's hearing she'd never talked about how to take a polygraph test with anyone other than her lawyers.

"Regarding the documents you have requested in your letter of October 2, 2018, Dr. Ford is prepared to provide those documents to the Federal Bureau of Investigation when she is interviewed". "Dr. Ford explained in detail what to expect, how polygraphs worked, and helped McLean become familiar and less nervous about the exam".

"I write to renew my requests for material evidence relevant to allegations of sexual assault made by your client, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, against Judge Brett Kavanaugh".

Additionally, Ford's former partner said that he witnessed her coaching a friend on how to take a polygraph test - which, if true, would mean that she lied to prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who asked specifically if the professor had ever "given any tips or advice to anyone who was looking to take a polygraph test". "I don't know", Trump said, flailing his arms around to mock her as he has some of his political foes or journalists during similar events in the past. A person convicted of lying to Congress can be imprisoned for up to five years under the statute. "We have not yet heard from the Federal Bureau of Investigation about scheduling an interview with her", they stated. According to Ford, she first shared details of the alleged sexual assault against her with a marriage therapist and an individual therapist. But it's not a photograph of Ford; it's an illustration of the words and phrases from her testimony arranged into a striking image of her taking an oath.

The bureau has not yet interviewed Ford, Kavanaugh, or other witnesses identified by Ford's legal team as crucial to the probe.

"Please provide the requested materials to the Senate Judiciary Committee immediately", the letter from Grassley concluded.
