The attorney representing Brett Kavanaugh said Wednesday that the polygraph results and therapist’s notes referenced by Christine Blasey Ford as corroborating evidence of her assault have not been turned over to the Senate Judiciary Committee as requested.
Ford, who claims Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and tried to remove her clothes at a high-school party, told the Washington Post that she recently passed a polygraph test substantiating her allegations and also mentioned the assault to her therapist, who recorded the conversation in her notes, in 2013.
Kavanaugh’s attorney, Beth Wilkinson, was asked on CBS This Morning about a Wednesday USA Today report indicating Ford provided the Senate sworn statements from four people who claim she told them separately of the assault in 2012, 2013, 2016 and 2017 respectively.
Wilkinson dismissed the statements, pointing out that they all reflect conversations that took place years after the alleged incident, and reminded viewers that the documentation Ford described to the Post had not been submitted to the Judiciary Committee Tuesday night as requested.
“The first time these allegations came to light, Dr. Blasey told her therapist and told her husband. They announced that there were notes and there had been a lie detector test but as I understand it they did not turn any of those over to the Senate Committee even though they were requested,” Wilkinson said. “That’s very important because apparently in those notes there’s a differing story of how many people were present at the party, there’s no mention of Judge Kavanagh and so all that information would be very important to determine if there’s any corroboration of this allegation.”
