Don’t say we didn’t tell you so. Rachel Mitchell, the prosecutor who questioned Dr. Christine Blasey Ford at the Kavanaugh circus last week, has released her findings to the Republican leadership. The memo is not good. In fact, it comes just shy of calling Ford a liar, liar pants on fire. You can read the full memo on Axios.com but below are some relevant screen captures.
First the opening:
The thru-line of Mitchell’s memo is a simple one: inconsistency. Dr. Ford just couldn’t keep her story straight. Not even details from when she took her own polygraph.
Here’s what I found most damning: HOW DID SHE GET TO AND FROM THE PARTY?! No one knows.
This handy tweet has all the screen captures of the report should you chose to read it not from Axios:

So while Dr. Ford gave a compelling testimony, while she came off sincere and emotional, pulling at all the right heartstrings, her actual testimony is less stable than any chair unfortunate enough to host Tess Holliday.
As our favorite shekel-hoarding Tumbler pusher is quoted as saying “Facts don’t care about your feelings.” It doesn’t matter how Dr. Ford’s testimony made anyone feel. The facts are not in her favor. The entire ordeal seems like nothing but a political circus meant to derail a judicial nominee appointed by a president the left no likey. The evidence the Democrats are just throwing tantrums and allegations is mounting.
