Here’s the Polygraph Test Christine Blasey Ford Took on Her Allegations Against Kavanaugh

An examination taken by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was released Wednesday, showing she passed a polygraph test over the sexual assault allegations she’s lodged against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

The August 7 examination, held in a Maryland Hilton Hotel, consisted of a one-page, handwritten statement by Ford, an interview and two questions: Is any part of your statement false? And, Did you make up any part of your statement?

She answered both with a no. The Virginia-based examiner, Jeremiah Hanafin, noted both answers were deemed “not indicative of deception,” according to the report obtained by USA TODAY.

The report was sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday ahead of Ford’s planned testimony on Thursday. In a letter to the committee’s leadership, Ford’s attorneys said they would not provide any of Ford’s medical records of the alleged assault.

“Any request that she expose her private medical records for public inspection represents an unacceptable invasion of privacy to which no reasonable person would consent,” her attorneys wrote. “Under no circumstances will we grant any such request.”

Ford’s attorneys have repeatedly noted Ford’s medical records as a way to corroborate her story. She is said to have talked about the assault during a 2012 couple’s therapy session, well before Kavanaugh was a nominee for the nation’s highest court.

Hanafin, who lists online that he provides polygraph services in Arlington, Virginia, wrote in his report that two other analysis’ was conducted, both concluding Ford’s answers showed no signs she was lying. One concluded the probability of deception was less than .02.
