Prosecutor doubts Ford evidence

The media narrative is Judge Brett Kavanaugh is guilty of every charge hurled against him and he should be removed from public life entirely. However, the Arizona prosecutor who worked with the Senate Judiciary Committee said there wasn't nearly enough evidence to support any of the charges before the Committee. So little, that no reasonable prosecutor would bring charges at all:

Rachel Mitchell, the deputy county attorney in charge of the Special Victims Division in Maricopa County, Arizona, said her "bottom line" was that "a 'he said, she said' case is incredibly difficult to prove."

"But this case is even weaker than that," Mitchell wrote. "Dr. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them."

"I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the committee," she wrote.

Mitchell led the questioning on Thursday of Christine Blasey Ford, who said in her Senate testimony that she was "100 percent" certain that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were in high school.

Democrats and their press allies dismiss Mitchell's report as the work of a partisan prosecutor who had no place asking questions in what was, they contend, a job interview.

You can read Mitchell's entire report here. This line was particularly damning:

"The activities of congressional Democrats and Dr. Ford's attorneys likely affected Dr. Ford's account."

Just as the rancid political theater surrounding everything Democrats have done, and continue to do, to Kavanaugh and the confirmation process shades this entire affair.
