  • Lawyers for Dr. Christine Blasey Ford released the results of
    a polygraph test she participated in after accusing Brett
    Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her.
  • The questions focused on Ford’s claim that Kavanaugh
    assaulted her while they were in high school, a claim that
    Kavanaugh strongly denies.
  • The results overwhelmingly indicate that Ford’s answers “are
    not indicative of deception,” the polygraph report shows.

Lawyers for Dr.
Christine Blasey Ford
released the results of a polygraph
test she participated in after accusing Brett Kavanaugh of
sexually assaulting her.

The examination, which took place at a Hilton hotel in Maryland
on August 7, focused on Ford’s claims that Kavanaugh attempted to
force himself on her at a house party while the two were high
school students in the 1980s. 

Attorneys for Ford, a psychology professor at Palo Alto
University, provided the results of the polygraph test to the
Senate Judiciary Committee. 

Both Ford and Kavanaugh are set to testify to the committee on
Thursday.  

Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the accusation. 

Two key questions from Ford’s polygraph test were: “Is any part
of your statement false?” and “Did you make up any part of your
statement?” 

Ford answered both of these questions with a “no” after giving
her account of the party where she claims the assault occurred.

After Ford shared her version of the alleged assault, examiners
applied three separate numerical scoring systems to the polygraph
test results. All three concluded that Ford’s responses were
“not indicative of deception,” with one scale registering a
0.002% probability that she was lying, and another giving it less
than a .02% chance.
