Why won’t Ford’s lawyers turn over the polygraph details and therapist notes?

And, do they really want the FBI to interview her?

“Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, attorneys for Christine Blasey Ford,  responded Wednesday to Grassley’s request for notes from Ford’s therapy sessions and recordings of a lie detector test she took related to her allegation that Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed and groped her during a high school party in the 1980s.” source

Let’s unpack that offer (demand?)…

============

Ask yourself a very, very basic question:

If you were Ford, and if the therapist’s notes and lie detector results supported your allegations, wouldn’t you be pushing hard to get them into evidence?

Of course, you would.

So, it makes no sense to withhold them and use them as a bizarre negotiating chip.

Why “bizarre”?

A more complicated question: Does Ford team really want the FBI to interview her?

More likely, to me, would be their avoiding the FBI like the plague.

Why?

Its unlikely that Ford has been holding back with critical information that would support her case,

More important, Prosecutor Mitchell’s gentle questioning  surfaced many information gaps and  inconsistencies.

My bet: FBI agents would laser in on the inconsistencies and inaccuracies.

How would that benefit Dr. Ford?

The likely outcome of a follow-up interview would be claims of the FBI bullying Dr. Ford and “blaming the victim”.

And, that would be an excuse for continuing to withhold the therapist notes and lie detector results.

We’d be at about the same place we are now.

Simple common sense.
