Blasey Ford: Polygraph Test Was ‘Extremely Stressful,’ I Was ‘Crying A Lot’

Christine Blasey Ford said Thursday that the polygraph test she took to corroborate her allegations of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was “extremely stressful.”

“Much longer than I anticipated,” she said. “I told my whole life story, I felt like. I endured it, it was fine.”

She added: “I was scared of the test itself, but was comfortable that I could tell the information and the test would reveal whatever it was going to reveal. I didn’t expect it to be as long as it was going to be, so it was a little bit stressful.”

“I remember being hooked up to a machine, being placed onto my body, and being asked a lot of questions, and crying a lot,” she said. “That’s my primary memory of that test.”
