Christine Blasey Ford: Final Report Regarding Her Testimony

63 Inconsistencies: Lies Or An Agenda?

Rachel Mitchell, veteran sex crimes prosecutor, found several inconsistencies in the testimony of Christine Blasey Ford. The Following is the text from this report:

  1. “In a July 6 text to the Washington Post, she said it happened in the ‘mid 1980s.’”
  2. “In her July 30 letter to Senator Feinstein, she said it happened in the ‘early 80s.’”
  3. “Her August 7 statement to the polygrapher said that it happened one ‘high school summer in early 80’s[.]’”
  4. “[Then] she crossed out the word ‘early’ for reasons she did not explain.”
  5. “A September 16 Washington Post article reported that Dr. Ford said it happened in the ‘summer of 1982.’”
  6. “The Washington Post “article reported that notes from an individual therapy session in 2013 show her describing the assault as occurring in her ‘late teens.’”
  7. “But she told the Post and the Committee that she was 15 when the assault allegedly occurred.”
  8. “She alleges that she struggled academically in college, but she has never made any similar claim about her last two years of high school.”
  9. “Dr. Ford testified that she told her husband about a ‘sexual assault’ before they were married.”
  10. “But she told the Washington Post that she informed her husband that she was the victim of ‘physical abuse’ at the beginning of their marriage.”
  11. “She testified that, both times, she was referring to the same incident.”
  12. “She told the Washington Post that the party took place … more than 7 miles from her childhood home … that it was a roughly 20-minute drive from her childhood home.”
  13. “She also agreed for the first time in her testimony that she was driven somewhere that night, either to the party or from the party or both.”
  14. “But she has no memory of who drove her or when. Nor has anyone come forward to identify him or herself as the driver.”
  15. “Given that this all took place before cell phones, arranging a ride home would not have been easy.”
  16. “Indeed, she stated that she ran out of the house after coming downstairs and did not state that she made a phone call from the house before she did, or…”
  17. “…that she called anyone else thereafter.”
  18. “Dr. Ford testified that her friend Leland, apparently the only other girl at the party, did not follow up with Dr. Ford after the party to ask why she had suddenly disappeared.”
  19. “According to her letter to Senator Feinstein, Dr. Ford heard Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge talking to other partygoers downstairs while she was hiding in the bathroom after the alleged assault.”
  20. “But according to her testimony, she could not hear them talking to anyone.”
  21. “In her letter, she stated, ‘I locked the door behind me. Both loudly stumbled down the stairwell, at which point other persons at the house were talking with them.’”
  22. “She testified that, after the incident, she ran into the bathroom, locked the door, and heard them going downstairs. But she maintained that she could not hear their conversation with others when they got downstairs.”
  23. “Instead, she testified that she ‘assum[ed]’ a conversation took place.”
  24. “According to the Washington Post’s account of her therapy notes, there were four boys in the bedroom in which she was assaulted.”
  25. “She told the Washington Post that the notes were erroneous because there were four boys at the party, but only two in the bedroom.”
  26. “In her letter to Senator Feinstein, she said ‘me and 4 others’ were present at the party.
  27. “In her testimony, she said there were four boys in addition to Leland Keyser and herself.”
  28. “She could not remember the name of the fourth boy, and no one has come forward.”
  29. “Dr. Ford listed Patrick ‘PJ’ Smyth as a ‘bystander’ in her statement to the polygrapher and in her July 6 text to the Washington Post, although…”
  30. “…she testified that it was inaccurate to call him a bystander.”
  31. “She did not list Leland Keyser even though they are good friends.”
  32. “Leland Keyser’s presence should have been more memorable than PJ Smyth’s.”
  33. “Dr. Ford struggled to remember her interactions with the Washington Post.”
  34. “Dr. Ford could not remember if she showed a full or partial set of therapy notes to the Washington Post reporter.”
  35. “She does not remember whether she showed the Post reporter the therapist’s notes or her own summary of those notes.”
  36. “The Washington Post article said that “portions” of her “therapist’s notes” were “provided by Ford and reviewed by” the Post. But…”
  37. “…in her testimony, Dr. Ford could not recall whether she summarized the notes for the reporter or showed her the actual records.”
  38. “She does not remember if she actually had a copy of the notes when she texted the Washington Post WhatsApp account on July 6.”
  39. “Dr. Ford said in her first WhatsApp message to the Post that she ‘ha[d] therapy notes talking about’ the incident when she contacted the Post’s tipline.”
  40. “She testified that she had reviewed her therapy notes before contacting the Post to determine whether they mentioned anything about the alleged incident, but…”
  41. “…could not remember if she had a copy of those notes, as she said in her WhatsApp message, or merely reviewed them in her therapist’s office.”
  42. “Dr. Ford could not remember if she was being audio- or video-recorded when she took the polygraph. And…”
  43. “…she could not remember whether the polygraph occurred the same day as her grandmother’s funeral or the day after her grandmother’s funeral.”
  44. “The date of the hearing was delayed because the Committee was informed that her [PTSD] symptoms prevent her from flying.”
  45. “But she agreed during her testimony that she flies ‘fairly frequently for [her] hobbies and … work’.”
  46. “She flies to the midAtlantic at least once a year to visit her family.”
  47. “She has flown to Hawaii, French Polynesia, and Costa Rica.”
  48. “She also flew to Washington, D.C. for the hearing.”
  49. “Note too that her attorneys refused a private hearing or interview.”
  50. “Dr. Ford testified that she was not “clear” on whether [Committee] investigators were willing to travel to California to interview her.”
  51. “It therefore is not clear that her attorneys ever communicated Chairman Grassley’s offer to send investigators to meet her in California or wherever she wanted to meet to conduct the interview.”
  52. “She claimed originally that she wished for her story to remain confidential, but…
  53. “…the person operating the tipline at the Washington Post was the first person other than her therapist or husband to whom she disclosed the identity of her alleged attacker.”
  54. “She testified that she had a ‘sense of urgency to relay the information to the Senate and the president.’ She did not contact the Senate, however, because…”
  55. “…she claims she ‘did not know how to do that.’”
  56. “She does not explain why she knew how to contact her Congresswoman but not her Senator.”
  57. “Dr. Ford has named three people other than Judge Kavanaugh who attended the party— Mark Judge, Patrick ‘PJ’ Smyth, and her lifelong friend Leland Keyser.”
  58. “Dr. Ford testified to the Committee that another boy attended the party, but that she could not remember his name.”
  59. “No others have come forward.”
  60. “All three named eyewitnesses have submitted statements to the Committee denying any memory of the party whatsoever.”
  61. “Most relevantly, in her first statement to the Committee, Ms. Keyser [Ford’s lifelong friend] stated through counsel that, ‘[s]imply put, Ms. Keyser does not know Mr. Kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, Dr. Ford.’”
  62. “In a subsequent statement to the Committee through counsel, Ms. Keyser said that ‘the simple and unchangeable truth is that she is unable to corroborate [Dr. Ford’s allegations] because she has no recollection of the incident in question.’”
  63. “Moreover, Dr. Ford testified that her friend Leland, apparently the only other girl at the party, did not follow up with Dr. Ford after the party to ask why she had suddenly disappeared.”
