As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following opinion editorial written by Becket Adams and published Monday by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
The headlines only pointed to the bottom line: Rachel Mitchell wouldn’t have prosecuted Brett Kavanaugh based on the available evidence after her questioning of both Christine Blasey Ford and Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh during last week’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.
But there was a lot more to it than that. The memo shows that Mitchell did not find Ford’s story credible. One reason was the lack of corroboration from the witnesses she cited. Another was her own failure to recollect important details about the sexual assault she alleges occurred nearly 40 years ago.
But more importantly, Mitchell found Ford to be evasive in her answers about more recent events – specifically, events that occurred this summer, when she began discussing her story with Democrats and with the Washington Post.
The article goes on to state the following:
The key line to remember in looking over all of Mitchell’s doubts is the second to last line in the memo: ” The activities of congressional Democrats and Dr. Ford’s attorneys likely affected Dr. Ford’s account.”
The memorandum includes a timeline suggesting that Democratic lawmakers and Ford’s attorneys, who were provided to the alleged victim on the recommendation of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., have handled the assault allegations as a political matter rather than a criminal one.
This is the same point Mitchell made subtly last week during the hearing when she noted that Ford’s advocates failed terribly in not recommending she submit to a forensic interview. Rather, the attorneys recommended by Feinstein urged Ford to hook herself her up to a polygraph almost immediately, which is bizarre considering lie detector tests are basically junk science.
