Senate Democrats such as Kirsten Gillibrand and Mazie Hirono have said that one way for Brett Kavanaugh to prove his innocence would be to ask the FBI to investigate something he says never happened. In case there’s any doubt that the talking point has made the rounds among all congressional Dems, Rep. Elijah Cummings is also in on the “Kavanaugh should ask the FBI to investigate him” narrative:
Dr. Ford passed a lie detector test and asked for an FBI investigation. Will Judge Kavanaugh do the same?

What a coincidence:
Same talking point. https://t.co/Ve1klxaC6i

Actually, testimony under oath is usually considered to have more veracity than a lie detector test. That's why lawyers might call witnesses to testify in open court, but the results of "lie detector" tests are inadmissable as evidence in the same cases. https://t.co/bGIWutiNUh

dude lie detector tests are wildly unreliable. It's unbelievably simple to fool them and they should carry no credibility at all. https://t.co/15IY4l27Ic

Again, Ted Bundy, Charles Manson, and the Green River killer all passed polygraphs. They're garbage and that's why they're inadmissible in court. https://t.co/oMTkvgSdns
