Kreskin on Christine Ford and Hypnosis

Posted by admin On October - 3 - 2018

The attention that has grown in intensity in recent days suggesting that hypnosis is a major factor in the Christine Ford accusations, hit home with me.  I’m about to administer a double blow to the serious possibilities of hypnosis jumping in bed with the Ford drama.  Because of my background in hypnosis and because of one of the most dramatic events in my career, namely in 1986 my being tried by a jury with the issue being hypnosis.  I have since had an important position to take regarding hypnosis, especially having won a NJ court challenge, in which the hypnotist who sued me and was supported by a psychiatrist sought to prove that hypnosis exists, and I had offered $50,000 for proof of a hypnotic trance or state.  I won the court challenge.
