Converus’ Lie Detector Can Help White House Expose Anonymous NY Times Op-Ed Writer and Exonerate Kavanaugh or His Accusers

EyeDetect monitors eye behavior to detect deception, including unethical activities like those claimed by Brett Kavanaugh accusers. It’s the fastest, most accurate lie detector available.

In 30 minutes, an EyeDetect lie detector test could determine who’s telling the truth: Judge Kavanaugh or his accusers.

LEHI, Utah – Sept. 26, 2018 –The personal attacks at the White House intensified on Sept. 5 when someone purportedly from within the Trump administration published an anonymous op-eded in the NY Times. And more recently, Brett Kavanaugh, Supreme Court nominee, is defending himself from a few last-minute accusers claiming sexual misconduct. Converus, a credibility assessment technology company, says its EyeDetect lie detector can help quickly resolve matters like these.

“We have an accurate, very user-friendly and 100 percent unbiased lie detector that can help identify whether a staff member wrote that New York Times op-ed piece,” said Converus President and CEO Todd Mickelsen. “It can also quickly determine whether Kavanaugh or his accusers are truthful.”

Within hours of the op-ed, President Trump demanded the New York Times reveal the anonymous author, claiming the person’s identity must be shared for “National Security purposes.”

Converus says its EyeDetect technology can quickly help the White House determine who wrote the anonymous New York Times op-ed.

Mickelsen said when Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky recommended the president ask members of his administration to take polygraph examinations to uncover the op-ed author, it was time for his company to speak up. After Senator Paul’s comment, Vice President Mike Pence denied he or anyone on his staff wrote the anonymous piece, as well as other senior officials.

“In these particular situations, a polygraph exam is simply not practical because of the time, cost, potential for human bias, and the intrusive nature of that technology,” said Mickelsen. “With EyeDetect, there are no cables or sensors attached to the examinee. The examinee just sits in front of a computer and answers some true/false questions.”

Mickelsen also stressed that because EyeDetect has an eye tracker to catch data, which is interpreted by a computer algorithm that calculates the result (truthful or deceptive), no human subjectivity or bias can influence the result of this automated test.

EyeDetect is currently being successfully implemented by state-level governments across the U.S. and in 40 other countries worldwide. Mickelsen said they’re using EyeDetect in similar situations where there’s a need to detect deception. In the U.S., state-level law enforcement agencies are using EyeDetect to screen job applicants for issues that would disqualify them from working for the organization. District attorneys, defense attorneys and prosecuting attorneys are currently using EyeDetect to screen individuals regarding claims they make that are potentially fraudulent.

In addition, state departments of correction are using EyeDetect to screen parolees to verify if they’ve disclosed all their unlawful activities prior to granting them early parole.

“We don’t care what side of the political aisle you’re on,” added Mickelsen. “Our vision and mission is all about preserving truth and exposing lies from whomever, whenever, wherever.”

Converus is hopeful EyeDetect will someday be used for screening not only state and local government employees, but also any federal government worker for interim or standard security clearances. According to a story on, the security clearance backlog has tripled the last three years to more than 700,000. Mickelsen says this backlog could be cleared in a few months with EyeDetect.
