Sex crime prosecutor Rachel Mitchell questioned Christine Blasey Ford regarding her sexual assault accusations aimed at Brett Kavanaugh.
Rachel Mitchell has apparently told Republicans privately that Christine Blasey Ford's story, if presented to Mitchell legally, would not even have enough information or evidence to get a search warrant on Brett Kavanaugh. Not only that, but there's no evidence in which she could even prosecute him.
That speaks volumes considering Mitchell is a woman who prosecutes criminal sexual offenders. You would think she'd be going after Kavanaugh if he was guilty, because that's basically what she does for a living anyway.
Wired Sources on Twitter posted this tidbit of information and stated that it came from the New York Times.
I checked their website. It was there.

JUST IN: Rachel Mitchell, The career sex-crime prosecutor who questioned Dr. Ford, told lawmakers tonight that based on the evidence she heard at the hearing, she would not have prosecuted or even been able to obtain a search warrant - NYT— Wired Sources (@WiredSources) September 28, 2018
As Dr. Blasey testified, Republican senators sat in mute witness, forgoing questioning and giving over their time to an outside lawyer, Rachel Mitchell, a sex crimes prosecutor whose clipped questioning gave the hearing a prosecutorial tone. Ms. Mitchell, who later told Republicans privately that she did not believe there was enough evidence to prosecute or even obtain a search warrant, seemed to have little success rattling Dr. Blasey or undermining her story.
Since this wasn't a criminal hearing, but more-so one big job interview that turned into hell, it's not like she could prosecute him anyway.
She could probably suggest that Ford presses charges, but based on what Mitchell has said - it would be a mute point.
Charges for what?
There are no witnesses.
There is no one to support the story that Kavanaugh acted inappropriately.
There is nothing on Kavanaugh's record that suggest that he would ever sexually assault anyone.
What is really going on here? That's what we need to figure out.Posted on September 28, 2018 in Politics and filed under Christine Blasey Ford, Brett Kavanaugh, Rachel Mitchell.
