From The American Spectator this morning:
"Blasey Ford facing perjury trap?
By Thomas Lifson
Today may be a day to savor. Senator Chuck Grassley and sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell took heavy criticism in some quarters over the solicitous tone and leisurely pace of the cross examination of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford before the Senate Judiciary Committee, but it looks like a perjury trap was being sprung. Ryan Saavedra of The Daily Wire explains:
A new letter, released by Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), states that a former boyfriend of Christine Blasey Ford says that he personally witnessed her coaching someone on how to take a polygraph test, despite the fact that she testified under oath that she had never done so.
"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," Grassley wrote.
"During some of the time we were dating, Dr. Ford lived with Monica L. McLean, who I understood to be her life-long best friend,” Ford's ex-boyfriend wrote in the letter. "During that time, it was my understanding that McLean was interviewing for jobs with the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s Office."
"I witnessed Dr. Ford help McLean prepare for a potential polygraph exam," the ex-boyfriend said. "Dr. Ford explained in detail what to expect, how polygraphs worked, and helped McLean become familiar and less nervous about the exam."
"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,'" Grassley continued. "This statement raises specific concerns about the reliability of her polygraph examination results."
Blasey Ford testified clearly that she “never” helped anyone with a polygraph:
It seems pretty clear to me that Rachel Mitchell knew about this letter and was getting Blasey Ford to go on the record under oath. My suspicion is that Ford was prepared for many days for her testimony, but her lawyers and handlers did not anticipate this line of questioning, so she winged it.
Combine this with reports that the FBI will complete its re-investigation and may submit its report today, and with reports that Blasey Ford has not been questioned, and the odds rise that the FBI has examined the possible perjury here."
Let it go...
If there is no risk to perjuring yourself to smear a law-abiding citizen, then the entire judicial system is worthless.
Get him confirmed and move on to keeping America great!
That would be time and money much better spent. Alas like all other investigations, nothing will come of it except perhaps a staffer or 2 being thrown under the bus.
But lay off of her directly. Or else in 36 years, she will be back.
First, she clearly lied about her supposed fear of flying and now an ex-boyfriend says when they were an item, she flew all over the place and never once indicated she had a fear of flying.
Second, she testified that she is a research psychologist. As it turns out, she's not only NOT a research psychologist, she's not even a psychologist at all.
What can be gained: A good skill that needs practice, if our representatives are going to be able to fight in this new age. Average People need the education, to see these tactics for what they are and learn how to effectively navigate through it. And, maybe a few will be knocked off of their high perch.
I think the handling of this public display has been very well crafted on our side, for the long-term victories and the short. It shows that a good game plan and intelligent coaches are helping the team. That has got to be the best thing for our country at this point. People bring forth the elected and we must work on them to get better bottom-line results.
Good work, Team Trump!
Ike, He ain't out yet. Doesn't look "taken down" at all. Just a little ragged but he will dust it off and keep fighting. Republicans will have to follow Trump's lead and that man knows how to fight. This is far from over. (For the folks in the ring and the public) It's just getting going.
Bring it on, its time to kick some stupid in the ass.
No idea how to prevent that incentive.
There is also a GoFundMe for Judge Kavanaugh.
God love her, because when she learned of it, she asked GoFundMe to delete the account and refund everyone's money.
When one sees the revelation from her long term boyfriend and this, the Demoncrats favorite term WRT Trump COLLUSION is where the rubber meets the road.
