How did Rachel Mitchell end up with Christine Blasey Ford’s WhatsApp messages?

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is expected to testify again before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday

Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is expected to testify again before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday

Rachel Mitchell of Maricopa County, Arizona, has been tapped to question Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, according to the Washington Post, the Arizona Republic and a press release.

One friend, Adela Gildo-Mazzon, said Ford told her in June 2013 that she had nearly been raped when she was much younger by someone who is now a federal judge. They said they want to avoid an overtly political process. "When I became an attorney with the office, I prosecuted other kinds of cases, but I was drawn back to this area", Mitchell said in a 2011 interview with FrontLine magazine, a religious publication.

Mitchell concluded her interview with questions concerning the proper way to interview trauma victims. When called on by Chairman Sen.

"I am here today not because I want to be", said Ford in her testimony. Did you know that the best way to do it is to have a trained interviewer talk you one-on-one in a private setting, and to let you do the talking? Her most prominent case - to date - came in 2005, when she prosecuted the Rev Paul LeBrun, a former Catholic priest accused of molesting six boys in Arizona during the 1980s and 1990s.

The Senate Republicans who oversaw three days of hearings on Kavanaugh are preparing to hand over their normal investigative role int he blockbuster hearing set for Thursday.

Democrats heaped praise on Ford and pointed to gaps in her memory as evidence that she has been truthful, with Illinois Senator Dick Durbin noting that a "polished liar" can create a "seamless story" while a survivor "cannot be expected" to remember every detail.

"The central point is that there is no precedent for this Committee to bring in outside counsel for the sole objective of shielding the members of the Committee from performing their responsibility to question witnesses", Bromwich said.

The film, which hits theaters in October 2019, was originally reported to be tiled "Are You My Friend", but is now untitled. One of the more fascinating elements of Fred Rogers is that he was that guy on television.

Her office said she was not available for interviews on Wednesday.

I recognize that testifying publicly about sexual assault allegations may be hard for Dr. Ford, so I have offered her the opportunity to testify in any of four possible venues: (1) a public hearing; (2) a private hearing; (3) a public staff interview; or (4) a private staff interview.

"The people of America are well served with her involvement in this process", he said. Mitchell asked how she got to D.C. Ford said that her attorneys may have given the notes to the newspaper.

When Mitchell's name was revealed, several talking heads were quick to make the connection between Maricopa County and Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The point: Ford claimed one thing, but the truth is different. "Cynical Decision to Hire "Female Assistant" Rapidly Backfiring on Republicans", wrote Rolling Stone. Republican senators deferred their time to Mitchell, so that she could question Ford.

Even Fox News' Wallace was skeptical. Deborah Ramirez, the second woman to speak out against Kavanaugh publicly, claims he exposed himself to her at a party during college.

In addition to asking about Ford's therapy sessions, her fear of flying, the precise location of her childhood home, and the circumstances of her polygraph exam, Mitchell inquired about encrypted WhatsApp messages Ford had exchanged with the Washington Post.

"Rachel Mitchell not only is not laying a glove on her but in my view is actually her credibility by the gentility with which these questions are being asked and the open-ended answers that the witness is being permitted to give". "The president can not be happy with this".
