Choice 1: Yes
Choice 2: Yes, but only Maury is invited as a special guest to reveal the results of Kavanaugh's polygraph test.

I'd say no. He has a right against being forced to incriminate himself. I'd like to see him take one, but I don't think he should be forced.
Now that there is a week delay, I wonder if the GOP will have their special assistant conduct a proper interview with Dr Ford and publish the results.
It's what you do and not what you say If you're not part of the future then get out of the way

Her initial findings is that there would not be enough evidence to prosecute. That said, she did say the setting and limitations place by the rules of the senate were not an ideal way of conducting these interviews.
I got a plan, we take all your picks we reverse them like one of those twilight zone episodes where everything is the opposite. You say "black" we go white.

Everyone has a right to take the 5th.

And, I'm not advocating polygraph as a normal routine for all appointments. However, due to the UNIQUE circumstance and the seriousness of the alleged sexual assault that requires a thorough FBI background (not a criminal) investigation, IMO, polygraph is warranted in this case.

In what capacity is a polygraph used in the interview process for other government positions?

Not to mention polygraphs are NOTORIOUSLY unreliable.

I think for national security reason, some CIA, FBI, NSA positions require polygraph test. Also some sensitive positions in financial sectors also require polygraph test.

Anyone with knowledge on the polygraph test requirement please chime in ...

It's not even that polygraphs "can be beaten" or "may not always work"....it's that polygraphs are simply absolutely terrible. It's easy to pass if you're relaxed and chill, even if you're actually lying/guilty as well as easy to fail even if you're telling the truth/innocent. I thought this was common knowledge. It's like one step above throwing "witches" into water to see if they drown.
