Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is asking for Christine Blasey Ford, the first woman to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, to turn over notes from her therapy sessions and recordings of the lie detector test she took.

Grassley made the request in a letter sent to Ford's attorneys on Tuesday night, according to The Wall Street Journal. The letter also asks for exchanges she's had with the media, and says that he is making the request because her sexual assault claim has "put Judge Kavanaugh on trial before the nation."

Ford is accusing Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her at a high school party in the 1980's. She and Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week in regards to her claims.

Kavanaugh has fiercely denied the allegation.

The Journal noted that Grassley also questioned the truthfulness of Ford's testimony in the letter.

Ford told senators she only discussed the lie-detector test with her lawyers. She also said she di

d not receive any tips on how to pass a polygraph.

Grassley said in the letter that the committee had received a sworn statement from an unidentified ex-boyfriend of Ford's that raised "specific concerns about the reliability of her polygraph examination results."

"The Senate therefore needs this information," he said in the letter.

The former boyfriend reportedly told the committee that he dated Ford from 1992 to 1998 and that he witnessed Ford, a psychologist, once help a friend prepare to take a lie-detector test.

The FBI is currently conducting an investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell(R-Ky.) has said that a vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation will take place this week.
