About this Episode

The United States has a new Supreme Court Justice: Brett Kavanaugh, but many people are still asking why he was allowed to ascend to the highest court in the land. The sexual assault allegations made by Christine Blasey-Ford and others rocked the nomination hearing process, and so in this first part of a two-part episode, we examine:

  • Blasey-Ford's testimony, her non-verbal responses, and how to tell if someone is being truthful by their responses;
  • How Ms. Mitchell, the prosecutor tasked by the Republicans to do their questioning, framed the issue;
  • How questioning was used to cast doubt about the methods of determining veracity including Polygraph testing;
  • The Democratic response to these allegations, and how the speeches given by Democrats may be set ups for future 2020 campaign runs, and more!
