Graham Kavanaugh statement

A day after Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S. C., expressed concerns about the lie detector test taken by Brett Kavanaugh Prosecutor Christine Ford, your lawyer refuses to comment, who paid for the examination and / or additional details of how it was carried out.

And experts contacted by Fox News confirmed that during polygraph examinations can be useful, they are ultimately fallible tools “can be beaten.” Without giving specific instances, he said, it could be beaten by sociopaths, psychopaths and dedicated liar, a “conscience”is missing.

Ford delivered The Washington Post, the results of a polygraph examination, conducted by a former FBI agent in August, which allegedly showed that they are truthful in their claims. According to the Post, Ford took the polygraph on the advice of her lawyer, Debra Katz.

Katz not respond to numerous requests for comment from Fox News on Tuesday about the polygraph.


Speaking of Fox News’ “Hannity” on Monday, Graham asked, who had paid for the lie detector, the experts told Fox News, could cost anywhere from $500 to $1,000.

“If Ford don’t want to really think to come forward, never to come to the front … why did you have to pay for a lie detector in August, and why she has a lawyer in August? And who pays for it?” Graham asked.

Democratic politicians and officials have to be quoted again and again, the claim that Ford had passed a lie-detector-to strengthen the audit, to make their claims.

“The woman who was attacked says Kavanaugh, allegedly, a lie detector test, passed,” Paul Begala, a onetime aide to former President Bill Clinton was under siege while he is by numerous allegations of sexual misconduct in the office. “Kavanaugh?”


But several experts told Fox News that the reputation of the polygraph as a reliable lie-detector machines is a dangerous simplification.

“It is not the result of the lie detector; it is what lie-detector subjects say during the polygraph interview that is most valuable,” worked with Thomas Mauriello, Professor of criminology at the University of Maryland, as a senior polygraph examiner for the defense Department.

“If someone you don’t have to be a psychopath or sociopath, if a certain … you can beat him.”

– Former FBI agent James Gagliano

“The result of a polygraph is simple, whether you have or not answers to a specific question. An answer is not a lie, because the polygraph is not added to a lie detector than most people think,” Mauriello. “A response is the activation of the sympathetic nervous system in response to a question during the investigation.”


James Gagliano, a former FBI agent who led a SWAT team in New York for several years and now teaches at St. John’s University, told Fox News that while polygraphs are valuable, they “can be beaten.”

“In this case, if you want to, put this as irrefutable proof that this woman is telling the truth, because you pass a lie detector-this is not the way, the polygraph work,” Gagliano added. “If that’s the case, I would’ve lost, every drug dealer, gangbanger, and pedophiles that I have investigated, and I threw it on the lie detector.”

Gagliano, who said he was subjected to several polygraph at the FBI, but never administered himself, he said, people can sometimes polygraphs will happen if you are convinced that you are not telling the truth: “It is a lie if you believe it,” he said.

“Everyone knows polygraph tests can be beaten,” Gagliano added. “If someone does not beat a psychopath or sociopath, if you have a conscience, if you don’t know right from wrong-you can.”

Gagliano explained that polygraphs are generally carried out by highly qualified professionals, the questions of, first, a “baseline” physiological response through the questions simple. Then, Gagliano said, the polygraph is often try to “scare” candidates, by asking a question, do you think you are in trouble, the, an additional data-point.

Ford announced on Tuesday they would refuse to make a statement about her allegations, despite the numerous invitations from Senate Republicans, to the FBI for a full investigation of the events leads claimed they entered into a house in Maryland, more than 35 years ago. To recognize Ford has not been in the position, who was in the possession of the house in question, or why there.

“It is completely the request is inappropriate for someone to, which we use to investigate law enforcement resources, a 35-year-old claim that if you don’t remember under oath and can me, important details, including when or where it happened,” said a Federal law enforcement official todl Fox News.

Talk separately to “The Ingraham angle,” on Monday night, Mauriello, explained that a number of factors-including how the questioner can affect interrogatories — the lie detector results.

Asked what it meant that Ford had passed a lie-detector, Mauriello says flat, “absolutely nothing.”
