NBC News legal analyst Ari Melber pointed out that adult film actress Stormy Daniels’ lie detector test would not be “very valuable in court” during an interview on Tuesday.

NBC News reported:

“Adult film actress Stormy Daniels underwent a polygraph exam in 2011 about her relationship with Donald Trump, and the examiner found there was a more than 99 percent probability she told the truth when she said they had unprotected sex in 2006, according to a copy of the report obtained by NBC News Tuesday.”

MSNBC’s Katy Tur asked Melber about the polygraph exam that Daniels took and how valuable it would be in the court of law.

“Not very valuable in court, not typically admissible,” Melber said. “It shows a high probability of her being truthful, according to this lie detector test. When you look at experts, they say these things are 70 to 90 percent accurate.”

Despite this, Melber attempted to argue that the NBC News report was “very newsworthy.”

A study by the American Psychological Association (APA) found that polygraph test like this could be beaten and advised that people “remain skeptical about any conclusion wrung from a polygraph.”
