THE LATEST: Dr. Ford Rejects ‘Mistaken Identity’ Defense, Can’t Say Who Paid for Polygraph

Originally published at:

Dr. Christine Ford appeared publicly for the first time Thursday morning; answering questions from Democratic Senators and an appointed attorney over allegations of sexual abuse by Judge Brett Kavanaugh in the early 1980s.

In her high-stakes testimony, Dr. Ford flat-out rejected the theory she may have mistaken Kavanaugh’s identity with another attacker; adding she was “100 percent” confident who assaulted her at a party.

“So what you are telling us is that this could not be a case of mistaken identity?” Sen. Feinstein asked.

“Absolutely not,” Ford replied.

When pressed by Attorney Rachel Mitchell regarding her August lie-detector test, Ford couldn’t say who financed the polygraph.

“Do you know who did pay for the polygraph?” asked Mitchell.

“Not yet, no,” Ford replied.
