Ford: Happy to Take Polygraph, But Found It Stressful

By    |   Thursday, 27 September 2018 02:19 PM

Christine Blasey Ford testified Thursday she decided to take a polygraph exam, but found it extremely stressful, as she'd never taken another such exam in her life.

"Based on the advice of the counsel, I was happy to undergo the polygraph test," she told Arizona prosecutor Rachel Mitchell, who was brought in by Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee to cross-examine Ford about her claims that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her while they were teenagers.

Ford said she did not pay for the polygraph test and didn't know who conducted it, but that it took place on the day of her grandmothers' funeral, or on the next day.

Later in the afternoon, her attorney, Debra Katz, interjected to more questions about the funding of the exam, saying "as custom," Ford's attorneys paid for the test.

Ford, a psychologist and professor in California, also said she'd never given tips or advice to anyone who wants to take a polygraph test.

"I remember being hooked up to a machine being placed on to my body and being asked a lot of questions and crying a lot," said Ford.

"That's my primary memory of that test. I don't know. I know he took laborious detail explaining what he was going to be doing, but I was just focused on kind of what I was going to say and my fear about that. I wasn't listening to every detail about whether it was audio or video reported."
