Monica Lee McLean (b. March 15, 1966) is a lifelong friend of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and co-worker with Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, and Bruce Ohr in the United States Justice Department.[1] McLean signed a letter in support of Blasey Ford during the Kavanaugh smear campaign.[2] An ex-boyfriend of Blasey Ford testified that he witnessed Blasey Ford coaching McLean on how to prepare for a lie-detector, an area in which Blasey Ford has contributed to research reports.[3] Blasey Ford testified to the Committee that she had never discussed preparation for a polygraph exam with anyone, ever, other than her own lawyer.

McLean is alleged to have tampered with a witness during the FBI investigation into allegations of sexual assault against Judge Kavanaugh, attempting to get a key witness to change her story in support of Blasey Ford's credibility.[4][5] McLean was represented by former DOJ-National Security Division lawyer David Laufman.[6]


McLean was admitted to the California Bar in 1992.[7] McLean was a 24-year employee of the Department of Justice and FBI from 1992 to 2016. According to public records McLean worked in both Los Angeles, CA and New York, NY.

In a 2000 Los Angeles FBI declaration McLean describes herself as a Special Agent of the FBI, Associate Division Counsel, in the Los Angeles Division Legal Unit.[8]

Sometime between 2000 and 2003, McLean transferred to the Southern District of New York (SDNY), FBI New York Field Office; where she shows up on various reports, including media reports, as a spokesperson for the FBI. In 2003 McLean shows up with an address listed in Washington DC.[9]

After 2003 McLean is working with the SDNY as a Public Information Officer for the FBI New York Field Office, alongside SDNY Attorney General Preet Bharara.[10]
