A memo from sex crimes prosecutor Rachel Mitchell to Senate Republicans outlines how weak Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's case really is.
"A 'he said, she said' case is incredibly difficult to prove," she concluded. "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."
Mitchell, who conducted cross-examination of Blasey Ford on behalf of Republicans during Thursday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing concluded that no "reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee" and that this evidence is not "sufficient to satisfy the preponderance-of-the-evidence standard."
In her memo, Mitchell thoroughly demonstrates the myriad problems of Blasey Ford's story, focusing in particular on how that story as evolved just in the few months since she first decided to share it.
