Democrats have been hyping the results of Christine Blasey Ford’s polygraph test and claiming that they serve as proof that her allegations against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh are accurate.
However, the man who conducted the polygraph test in August says Ford only answered two “yes or no” questions, and reminded people that so-called “lie detector” tests are generally inadmissible in court because they aren’t reliable.
During an interview with Fox News, the former FBI agent, Jerry Hanafin, who conducted the polygraph test on Ford said he only asked her two “yes or no” questions about her allegations that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her almost four decades ago.
“Is any part of your statement false?” he asked first, followed by, “Did you make up any part of your statement?”
Hanafin said she answered “no” to both questions, and that the test determined that she didn’t deceive with her responses. The final report also doesn’t make any mention of questions regarding specifics about what she alleges.
It appears she was only asked basic questions about what she alleges, not about anything specific that would require details.
Hanafin said he didn’t push Ford for specifics because he didn’t want to overwhelm the victim while she was revealing what she alleges happened.

Kavanaugh was never accused of any wrongdoing for nearly four decades while he served in the Bush administration and on the federal court — but in the past three weeks, five people have come forward and accused him of sexual misconduct.
Ford alleges he pinned her down and attempted to grope her during a party roughly 36 years ago. She and Kavanaugh are testifying on Capitol Hill on Thursday about the allegations.
The second woman, Miranda Ramirez, alleges Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a party in 1983.
A third individual, Julie Swetnick, claims Kavanaugh was “present” when she attended parties in the early 1980s, where she alleges men were carrying out gang rapes. She has only accused Kavanaugh of possibly being present at one of the parties where this was taking place.
The other two allegations are from anonymous “people” who refused to give their names, locations, or literally any proof at all that they know Kavanaugh or have ever been around him at an event.
Kavanaugh strongly denies all of the allegations, but that hasn’t stopped many on the Left from portraying Kavanaugh as being the leader of supposed a “gang rape” cartel when he was in college.
Ford’s allegations have gotten the most attention because she is testifying on Thursday, and her supposed lie detector results are being portrayed as “proof” to support he claims.
As Hanafin noted, he only asked her two general questions. He didn’t ask her about anything specific or direct about what she alleges. The questions were about as vague as “Do you know Brett Kavanaugh.” Of course her answers are going to be truthful when they are so broad and general that it would be impossible to lie.
This is nothing but a last-minute delay tactic by Democrats — and Ford’s polygraph, many argue, is anything but proof.
