Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's polygraph examination results were released on Wednesday. The polygraph was conducted on Aug. 7 by Virginia-based examiner Jeremiah Hanafin.
Hanafin asked Ford two questions:
1. Is any part of your testimony false? Answer: No.
2. Did you make up any part of your statement? Answer: No.
According to the results, Ford's answers were deemed "not indicative of deception."
That would be all fine and dandy, except there is are two blatant contradictions in her accusations.
In her July 30th letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Ford said, "The assault occurred in a suburban Maryland area home at a gathering that included me and 4 others."
In her Aug. 7th polygraph letter, she said, "There were 4 boys and a couple of girls."
National Review's Charles C.W. Cooke tweeted images of both letters, side-by-side, so the public could have a comparison of the two.
Dr. Ford's polygraph letter contradicts letter she sent to Feinstein. Polygraph letter says "4 boys and a couple of girls" were at party. Letter to Feinstein says "me and four others." No way to reconcile the two—irrespective of whether she's counting herself in polygraph letter. pic.twitter.com/aWJ10vTDna— Charles C. W. Cooke (@charlescwcooke) September 26, 2018
Even if Ford counted herself in one account and not the other, there's no way to come to the same total number of people at the party.
Feinstein letter would mean 5 people total.
Polygraph letter would mean 6-7 people total (depending on if she counted herself or not).
In the Feinstein letter, Ford said, "Kavanaugh physically pushed me into a bedroom as I was headed for a bathroom up a short stairwell from the living room."
In the the polygraph letter, Ford said, "At that point I was pushed into the bedroom by two persons into a bedroom and was locked in the room and pushed onto a bed."
In her prepared statement, Ford said she was pushed into a bedroom by Kavanaugh and Mark Judge.
Let's see how this plays out during the Senate Judiciary Committee's hearing on Thursday and if these contradictions are brought up by Committee members.
