Christine Ford Claimed She Never Coached Anyone on Taking a Polygraph, New Letter Shows That’s False

Another new report about Christine Ford’s testimony during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last week makes it appear Ford gave false testimony to committee members — making her entire claim about Judge Brett Kavanaugh suspect.

As LifeNews reported yesterday, during her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Christine Ford claimed she had two doors installed in her home because she feared she may be a victim of assault again after Judge Brett Kavanaugh supposedly sexually assaulted her as a teenager. New reports indicate that claim is false.

Now, an alleged ex-boyfriend of Ford’s came forward on Tuesday and said that she had once coached her longtime friend on how to take a polygraph test. That’s a contradiciton to what she told the Senate panel.

The letter was first obtained by Fox News’ John Roberts and it began by saying that he “found her truthful and maintain no animus” during their relationship from 1992-1998.

“During that time, it was my understanding that [Ford’s roommate, Monica] McLean was interviewing for jobs with the FBI and US Attorney’s Office. I witnessed Dr. Ford help McLean prepare for a potential polygraph exam,” it said. “Dr. Ford explained in detail what to expect, how polygraphs worked and helped McLean become familiar and less nervous about the exam. Dr. Ford was able to help because of her background in psychology.”

That’s important because Ford claimed during her testimony that she had not ever coached or prepped anyone prior to the administering of a polygraph examination.

Now, Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley is demanding evidence related to the letter. He said the Senate Judicial Committee needs “material evidence relevant to allegations of sexual assault” against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, the panel’s chairman wrote in a letter to Ford’s attorneys Tuesday evening after the letter surfaced.

“The full details of Dr. Ford’s polygraph are particularly important because the Senate Judiciary Committee has received a sworn statement from a longtime boyfriend of Dr. Ford’s stating that he personally witnessed Dr. Ford coaching a friend on polygraph examinations,” Grassley said.
