Blasey's Ex-Long-Term Boyfriend: I Personally Saw Blasey Coach a Friend on How to Take a Polygraph Test

Note: Shannon Bream will almost certainly be discussing this at 11 EST.

Update: Ed Henry reports that Bob Corker, who is no TruCon or Trump fan, predicts Kavanaugh will be confirmed "no later than Saturday."

And also, he says, they flew in Hawaii on a propeller plane -- you know, the little planes that cause even people without aviaphobia to go into panic.

Oddly enough, she didn't mention her apparently late-onset fear of flying.

Note that bit about being unfaithful -- and Blasey's nonsensical claims that she was seeing a marriage therapist over her husband's slight resistance to adding a second door to the home, years after they'd already installed it.

And notice her absolute refusal to turn over her therapist notes.

Sean Davis' article here:

"During some of the time we were dating, Dr. Ford lived with Monica L. McLean, who I understood to be be her life-long best friend," the ex-boyfriend, whose name was redacted from the statement he gave to the Senate, wrote. "During that time, it was my understanding that McLean was interviewing for jobs with the FBI and U.S. Attorney's Office."

"I witnessed Dr. Ford help McLean prepare for a potential polygraph exam," he said. "Dr. Ford explained in detail what to expect, how polygraphs worked, and helped McLean become familiar and less nervous about the exam."

Davis notes that Rachel Mitchell asked about precisely this during Blasey's testimony -- and she denied ever having even given "tips" about taking a polygraph.

"Have you ever had discussions with anyone, beside your attorneys, on how to take a polygraph?" Mitchell asked.

"Never," Ford responded.

"And I don’t just mean countermeasures,” Mitchell said, "but I mean just any sort of tips, or anything like that."

"No," Ford said.

"[H]ave you ever given tips or advice to somebody who was looking to take a polygraph test?" Mitchell continued.

"Never," Ford replied again.

Is Blasey going to claim her old stand-by, Tactical Amnesia, yet again to explain away this contradictory testimony?

ONT below -- but I thought you'd want this up right away, instead of waiting for JJ.

Update: A commenter sends this old record along, a sworn statement by one Monica McLean, who identifies herself as an Assistant District Counsel for the FBI in the LA office in 2000.

The document itself isn't interesting, but it does seem to indicate that there was indeed a Monica McLean hunting for lawyer jobs in the FBI at about the time Blasey's boyfriend discusses.

More: Grassley re-demands Blasey's therapist's notes and information about her polygraph -- including the videotape of it that she was cagey about pretending she didn't know existed -- noting that he has already demanded this before and her lawyers have baselessly refused.

Then, on page 2, he says the polygraph information is especially urgent given the statement made by her boyfriend that she's coached at least one person in taking a polygraph.
