Dr. Ford did pass a lie detector test, which is somehow lost on Fox News. I haven't heard them cover in detail that fact.
Trump, like his state television support network Fox News, repeated the lie that Dr. Ford had no witnesses and that everyone said the assault did not happen. In fact, no witness or friend said any of the sorts. One friend said she didn't recall, but she believes Ford's account. Others said they don't remember, which is not the same as saying it didn't happen.
Christine Blasey Ford’s Friend Doesn’t Deny Assault Claim, Lawyer Says Huff PostOften victims of sexual assault, or any abuse, remember the incident, but not always the surrounding details. For example, people, as Dr. Ford did, recall specific information about the assault, but not for example, how exactly she arrived, who she left with, which are inconsequential to the underlining claim.
In fact, Brett Kavanaugh's calendar gives a date with the same people Dr. Ford said were at a party. He wrote it down on his calendar. Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee have pointed out the date & people at the party, the very individuals Christine Ford placed at the party.
I am glad to be in the party where sexual assault is treated serious.
Poll finds 81% of Democrats would definitely not support a candidate accused of sexual harassment by multiple people. https://t.co/w48z4L96nv— MSNBC (@MSNBC) October 3, 2018
What's more significant about the calendar, Dr. Ford did not see it before her lawyers released her statement; so when she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Ford did not know about Brett's calendar. However, many people say, Brett, left the evidence for all to see. In his writing.
It is common for us to remember specific incidences in our lives, but not surrounding details, and that can even happen with joyous events. When you found out you were having a baby for the first time, you can remember the joy, panicky feelings; or the first time you lost your virginity; events of consequence. Now if you think about happy memories, you might have locked in your brain, imagine a dramatic, horrible, life-altering event, which changes the course of your life. Healthy relationships with severe trust issues, sexual inadequacies, low-self image, mood swings relating to the event.
People need to remember, the supreme court has more power than the president. So, for decades to come regardless of a Democratic or Republican president, the supreme court can rule in favor of conservative positions, and that's the goal of the ultra wealthy, not to serve the people.
Remember what Trump said about women?Senate Minority Leader Schumer:— MSNBC (@MSNBC) October 3, 2018
