TO PREVENT DEMOCRAT SENATE CIRCUS, AZ PROSECUTOR RACHEL MITCHELL WILL QUESTION BOTH KAVANAUGH AND FORD …
As reported at the WAPO, Arizona prosecutor Rachel Mitchell will question both Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Ford, who accused the SCOTUS nominee of sexually assaulting her as a teenager 36 years ago. This a a great move. Ms. Mitchell is a 25-year prosecutor and 12-year specialist in sex-crime cases, in Maricopa County , Arizona, which also included investigations of cold cases. What better individual could you have to elicit the facts of the accusations that are being put forward? Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) said in a statement. “The goal is to de-politicize the process and get to the truth, instead of grandstanding and giving senators an opportunity to launch their presidential campaigns.”
Republican senators have selected Arizona prosecutor Rachel Mitchell to question Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh and the woman who has accused the Supreme Court nominee of sexually assaulting her when they were teenagers, a top senator announced Tuesday.
Mitchell is the chief of the special victims division of the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, which deals with sexual assault cases, among others. A registered Republican, Mitchell has worked for in the county attorney’s office for 26 years.
In enlisting Mitchell to join their staff, Republican senators are taking an unusual step. They are turning to her to ask what are expected to be personal and potentially painful questions about the woman’s youth on live television, sparing the all-male panel of 11 Republican senators on the committee some uncomfortable exchanges that could sway the public’s opinion about the session.
“The majority members have followed the bipartisan recommendation to hire as staff counsel for the committee an experienced career sex-crimes prosecutor to question the witnesses at Thursday’s hearing,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) said in a statement. “The goal is to de-politicize the process and get to the truth, instead of grandstanding and giving senators an opportunity to launch their presidential campaigns.”
The hearing is set for Thursday. We shall see of Christine Blasey Ford’s actually shows as her attorneys have been making some ridiculous demands in order for their client to testify.
