Ex-boyfriend's letter prompts Grassley to question Ford's truthfulness

"'I don't remember, '" he said before the audience in.

Christine Blasey Ford (C) is flanked by her attorneys, Debra Katz (L) and Michael Bromwich, as she testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington on September 27, 2018. "[Dr. Ford's] testimony hinges on evidence to which Dr. Ford has repeatedly referred-some of which has already been provided to a nationally circulated newspaper-but which you have refused to provide to the Senate".

I believed Christine Blasey Ford thought she was telling the truth. "When asked under oath in the hearing whether she'd ever given any tips or advice to someone who was planning on taking a polygraph, Dr. Ford replied, 'Never'".

"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".

"What I can tell you with certainty is we'll have an Federal Bureau of Investigation report this week and we'll have a vote this week", McConnell told reporters at the Capitol.

The FBI has officially concluded their supplemental background check into Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh and the sexual misconduct allegation from Ford without interviewing her.

But in a written declaration leaked to the media on Tuesday, an unidentified ex-lover said that during their six-year relationship, Ford never exhibited any of the post-assault anxiety or fears that she detailed during her senate testimony. A person convicted of lying to Congress can be imprisoned for up to five years under the statute. Her inability to remember this detail raises significant questions.

"The Constitution tasks the Senate, not the media or the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with providing advice and consent for Supreme Court nominees".

"It will no doubt resonate that each GOP senator starts his time by apologizing to Kavanaugh for what he is going through, while none took their time to apologize to Dr. Ford what she has been through,"Tur tweeted to her 565,000 Twitter followers the day of Ford and Kavanaugh's testimonies".

The bureau has not yet interviewed Ford, Kavanaugh, or other witnesses identified by Ford's legal team as crucial to the probe.
