The Democrats are desperate to block Judge Brett Kavanaugh from the Supreme Court, and they’re throwing out any roadblock they can possibly think of.
While speaking to reporters on Thursday, House Minority Leader demanded that Kavanaugh submit to a “lie detector test” to prove his innocence amid allegations he harassed a girl in high school.
“If he doesn’t have anything to hide,” Pelosi said, suffering a brain freeze, “Judge Kavanaugh should subject himself to a lie detector test, just the way Dr. Ford did.”
(Can we submit Nancy to a competency test?)
“She had a lie detector test. She passed it. Why doesn’t he subject himself to one?”
Fox News reports:
One day after Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., raised concerns about the polygraph test taken by Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Ford, her attorney is refusing to comment on who paid for the examination or provide additional details on how it was conducted.
And experts contacted by Fox News confirmed that while polygraph examinations can be useful, they are ultimately fallible tools that “can be beaten.” Without mentioning any particular instances, one former senior FBI agent said polygraphs would have difficulty detecting deception by sociopaths, psychopaths and committed liars lacking a “conscience.”
“If Ms. Ford really did not want to come forward, never intended to come forward … why did she pay for a polygraph in August, and why did she hire a lawyer in August? And who paid for it?” Graham said on Monday’s episode of “Hannity.”
Ford’s attorney, Debra Katz, didn’t respond to “numerous requests for comment” by Fox News.
Kavanaugh, meanwhile, sent a letter to Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley asking for a hearing “as soon as possible, so that I can clear my name.”
“Since the moment I first heard this allegation, I have categorically and unequivocally denied it,” he wrote.
“I remain committed to defending my integrity.”
