Brett Kavanaugh: Grassley Demands Christine Blasey Ford’s Therapy Notes

The Senate Judiciary Committee’s Republican chairman demanded more evidence late Tuesday from Christine Blasey Ford’s attorneys to support her sexual-misconduct allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, including notes from her therapy sessions, recordings of the lie-detector test she took, and exchanges she had with reporters. In a letter addressed to Ford’s attorneys, Sen. Chuck Grassley said more evidence was needed to evaluate the allegations before voting on the nomination of President Trump’s Supreme Court pick—expected to take place by the end of the week. Grassley also questioned the truthfulness of Ford’s testimony, saying her account “raises specific concerns about the reliability of her polygraph examination results.” When she testified before the Judiciary Committee last week about the alleged attack, Ford denied that she had ever spoken to anyone but her attorneys about how to take a lie-detector test.
