“In the legal context, here is my bottom line,” Mitchell said. “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,” Mitchell said. “For the reasons discussed below, I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee.

Rachel Mitchell, the sex-crimes prosecutor who questioned Dr. Christine Blasey Ford last week, wrote in a memo released late Sunday that there were inconsistencies in Ford’s testimony and that — given the information at hand — she would not bring criminal charges against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Mitchell, who was hired by the Senate Judiciary Committee to assist Republicans, addressed the letter to “All Republican Senators,” and said no senator approved the memo. She noted in the assessment that she is a Republican, but said she is not a political person.
She identified Ford’s case as an example of “he said, she said,” and said her case is “even weaker than that.”
It will be interesting to see how the Dems. spin this one. This women was an independent outside source brought in to administer a series of questions that any reasonable person would know the answers to.
