During Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee, she was asked by the GOP’s expert if she ever discussed or gave tips on how to take a polygraph. It turns out that Blasey Ford has an ex-boyfriend of 6 years who says she helped coach a friend on how to take a polygraph test:
THIS IS WHAT SHE SAID UNDER OATH:
MITCHELL: Have you ever had discussions with anyone, beside your attorneys, on how to take a polygraph?
MITCHELL: And I don’t just mean countermeasures, but I mean just any sort of tips, or anything like that.
FORD: No. I was scared of the test itself, but was comfortable that I could tell the information, and the test would reveal whatever it was going to reveal. I didn’t expect it to be as long as it was going to be, so it was a little bit stressful.
MITCHELL: Had — have you ever given tips or advice to somebody who was looking to take a polygraph test?

Fox News reports:
In a letter released Tuesday and obtained by Fox News, an ex-boyfriend of Christine Blasey Ford, the California professor accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, seemingly contradicts her testimony under oath last week that she had never helped anyone prepare for a polygraph examination.
The former boyfriend, whose name was redacted, also said Ford neither mentioned Kavanaugh nor said she was a victim of sexual misconduct during the time they were dating from about 1992 to 1998. He said he saw Ford helping a woman he believed was her “life-long best friend” prepare for a potential polygraph test. He added that the woman had been interviewing for jobs with the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s office:
“I witnessed Dr. Ford help [Monica L.] McLean prepare for a potential polygraph exam” and that Ford had “explained in detail what to expect, how polygraphs worked and helped [her] become familiar and less nervous about the exam.”
The ex-boyfriend also said he never heard Blasey Ford express a fear of flying.
So the delay by the Democrats is backfiring because Blasey Ford’s story is falling apart. Senator Grassley immediately called for the release of thd notes from Ford’s therapist:
“Your continued withholding of material evidence despite multiple requests is unacceptable as the Senate exercises its constitutional responsibility of advice and consent for a judicial nomination.”
