Watters: Ford's Ex-Boyfriend's Sworn Letter 'Riddled With Bombshells'
Jesse Watters said Wednesday on "The Five" that the letter an ex-boyfriend of Christine Blasey Ford sent to Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley under penalty of felony is "riddled with bombshells."
Watters made the remarks in reference to criticism President Trump received at a Tuesday rally in DeSoto County, Mississippi, where he took issue with Ford's specific allegations of sexual misconduct against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
The letter, obtained by Fox News, said Ford never mentioned Kavanaugh while the two dated from about 1992 to 1998:
In a written declaration released Tuesday and obtained by Fox News, an ex-boyfriend of Christine Blasey Ford, the California professor accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, directly contradicts her testimony under oath last week that she had never helped anyone prepare for a polygraph examination.
The former boyfriend, whose name was redacted in the declaration, also said Ford neither mentioned Kavanaugh nor mentioned she was a victim of sexual misconduct during the time they were dating from about 1992 to 1998. He said he saw Ford going to great lengths to help a woman he believed was her "life-long best friend" prepare for a potential polygraph test. He added that the woman, Monica McLean, had been interviewing for jobs with the FBI and U.S. Attorney's office.
"It's riddled with bombshells," Watters said of the letter, playing tape of the Republicans' outside prosecutor Rachel Mitchell asking Ford about whether she coached people on polygraphs.
However, Ford's friend mentioned by the ex-boyfriend denies any such actions by Ford.
"The media is saying that Trump's comments about Ford are a mockery... are the same media that thought ridicule of Kavanaugh was sparkling and brilliant and daring," Greg Gutfeld added.

"All [Trump] did was point out a discrepancy," he said. "What Trump said is exactly the opinion of everybody at home, saying some of [Ford's testimony] has holes in it."
Gutfeld said that the "Rally Trump" persona "reflects most of America," which is otherwise subdued about controversial topics while in public situations.
