Christine Blasey Ford’s Ex Says She Lies

Here in Australia, the ABC Media’s AM program is outraged this morning that Donald Trump noted reasons to doubt Christine Blasey Ford’s claim that she was nearly raped when 15 by his Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.

Host Sabra Lane even dismisses the large holes in Ford’s story as just “alternative facts” from the White House. Nowhere has the ABC presented them in a forensic way.

It’s as if the real story for the ABC is whether we believe a female “victim” without question, rather than whether what that woman says is actually true.

The ABC has also failed so far to report a very big new reason to doubt Ford: an ex-boyfriend claims Ford never mentioned the attack in their six years together, and, contrary to her claim, coached a friend in passing lie detector tests. And there’s more:

Prior to testifying before the Senate, Dr Ford said she did not want to appear because she was afraid to fly and was suffered PTSD from the alleged assault that made her anxious in confined spaces. She also she was uncomfortable in rooms without two doors.

“I was hoping to avoid getting on an airplane. But I eventually was able to get up the gumption with the help of some friends and get on the plane,” Dr Ford testified.

An ex-boyfriend of Christine Blasey Ford has provided a declaration to a Senate hearing disputing several of her claims.

In his declaration, the ex-boyfriend said Dr Ford never expressed a fear of flying and was once a passenger in a propeller plane.

He also claimed they shared a small apartment with only one front door.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley cited the man’s declaration and insisted lawyers for Dr Ford provide notes from her therapist.

Dr Ford said she first disclosed the alleged sexual assault in 2012 during therapy sessions with her husband, after they began to fight over her insistence they install a second front door.

The additional entry was an “escape route” that she required due to anxiety and claustrophobia she suffered as a result of the alleged assault.

However, real estate records have emerged showing the door was installed four years before the therapy sessions in 2008.

It was part of extensive renovation works on the couple’s California home, which also included a new bathroom.

And health care records reportedly obtained surrounding the 2012 therapy sessions detail that Dr Ford worked from a home office, which Republicans say was the reason for the second door.

Dr Ford sat for a polygraph lie detector test in August and answered questions about the alleged attack, which she passed.

She told the Senate hearing that she had “never” had “any discussions with anyone … on how to take a polygraph”. She also denied giving “any tips or advice to anyone who was looking to take a polygraph test”.

But her ex-boyfriend’s declaration said Dr Ford had helped a friend prepare for a polygraph test for a job interview and “explained in detail what to expect, how polygraphs worked and helped (her) become familiar and less nervous about the exam,” using her background in psychology.

True, the ex-boyfriend has not been publicly named. He may have an axe to grind. His word has not been tested. But anyone thinking this is not worth considering and evaluating is plainly not interested in getting to the truth.
