New Memo From Prosecutor Highlights Inconsistencies in Kavanaugh Accuser Testimony

2018-10-01 14:40
A new memo from the prosecutor who questioned a woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, highlights the accuser’s multiple inconsistencies, including the insistence that a key witness was at the alleged scene, despite the witness refuting the accuser’s claim. Rachell Mitchell, a prosecutor based in Arizona, was chosen by Republican senators on the Senate Judiciary Committee to question Christine Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her in a Maryland home when she was 15 and he was 17. Mitchell sent a memo to the Republican senators on Sept. 30, noting the many inconsistencies with Ford’s account that were revealed through questioning during the public hearing on Sept. 27. Mitchell noted that the memo “contains my own independent assessment of Dr. Ford’s allegations, based upon my independent review of the evidence and my nearly 25 years experience as a career prosecutor of sex-related and other crimes in Arizona.”
