Fox News host Jeanine Pirro suggested Thursday, based on pure conjecture, that Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh could be the fabricated result of a hypnosis session with her therapist.
Newsweek reported that Pirro and fellow Fox News host Sean Hannity were discussing the case when Hannity brought up that Ford first mentioned the alleged assault in couples counseling.
> After Hannity pointed out: "Didn't they say that this came out for the first time in couples therapy in 2012?"
> Pirro said: "Yeah, and what was that about? When was the first time Kavanaugh's name came up? And what about, is this hypnosis?
> "Is this confabulation?" Pirro said, referring to a term used by psychologists to define a memory error that sees the production of fabricated, distorted or misinterpreted memories.
> "This is all stuff that is contrary to what the law calls for," she said.
