The outside counsel appointed by Senate Judiciary Republicans to ask questions during the Kavanaugh-Ford hearing Thursday says no "reasonable prosecutor" would bring criminal charges against the judge. (Thread)
Prosecutor Rachel Mitchell stressed in the attached 5-page memo sent to Senate Republicans that the hearing was a job interview, and not a trial. "A 'he said, she said' case is incredibly difficult to prove," Mitchell wrote, "But this case is even weaker than that."
While Ford said she was "100 percent" certain Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her, the memo lists instances in which Ford was unable to offer a consistent account on descriptive elements of the night in the early 1980s that she alleges the incident occurred.
The memo also notes how Ford's claim had not been corroborated by anyone she identified as attending that party, and states that Ford has been inconsistent in more recent recollections, including her interactions with the Washington Post, which first identified her publicly.
At the end of her memo, Mitchell says "the activities of congressional Democrats and Dr. Ford's attorneys likely affected Dr. Ford's account."
