WASHINGTON — The sex crimes prosecutor hired last week by Senate Republicans to question witnesses about a sexual assault claim against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh said Sunday night that his accuser has a very weak case.
Rachel Mitchell issued a five-page report in which she said Christine Blasey Ford’s accusation that Kavanaugh assaulted her at a small, suburban house party in 1982 normally would be “incredibly difficult to prove.”
But “this case is even weaker than that,” Mitchell wrote to Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee. “Dr. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them.
