Rachel Mitchell, the sex crimes prosecutor who questioned Ford, released a damning independent analysis. She said Ford’s entire story is very weak.
In the legal context, here is my bottom line: A “he said, she said” case is incredibly difficult to prove. But this case is even weaker than that. Dr. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them.

So, instead of Feinstein realizing the case is falling apart on its own, the desperate Democrat must turn her attacks to Mitchell instead.
President Trump isn’t alone in mocking Dr. Blasey Ford. Senate Republicans have called Dr. Ford ‘mixed up’ and said she has a ‘problem,’ tried to discredit her with mistaken identity theories, and Republican attorney Rachel Mitchell penned a flawed memo to discredit Dr. Ford.

This entire attack reeks of desperation.
