I think the Dems aren't worried about truth, they are all about wagging the dog with the help of MSM, to carry this into the midterms...
It will be interesting to see how they try to EXTEND the 1 week FBI investigation...

Kinda a side note, but has Mitchell been previously associated with any huge cases involving any big names?
Wondering if there was a secondary or tertiary reason for specifically hiring her.

All of these items were also mentioned in the real-time thread during the hearing. Imagine if Ms. Mitchel had been permitted to conduct a true, uninterrupted, line of inquiry.
I believe the 2 lawyers were present to more run interference than to protect their client. During a part of the question Mitchell asked Ford about her letter to Feinstein. In her response Ford stated Feinstein told her she would release the letter just prior to the vote occurring. Mitchell caught the comment and began to ask her about it at which point her lawyers interrupted and were able to move off the slip onto something else.

She says she was terrified of boys for years. Yet people from her college days have said she hooked up with guys a lot.

and something else I must mention. She states that this is THE defining moment of her life....and this will make me come across as SO uncaring...but I had some REALLY bad stuff happen to me...and people are all different and have different tolerance levels for what is considered "bad"....but if having a teenaged boy grope you and put his hand over your mouth is THE defining moment in your life....in ALL of your almost 53 years....WOW...
This alleged assault was a teenaged groping incident AT MOST....how many girls have gone through something like this, especially at that age? 15-16 years old..... I cannot speak for girls of a different era...but of the early to mid 1980s I can.....things were different. When I was groped at a party, (and I got away and was driven home, crying....) I didn't tell my parents or go to the cops.....I learned my lesson and didn't go alone into any bedrooms with drunk boys
I just am stressing that I call foul on Ms Ford's story and her reason to tell her story...maybe something really did happen to her....but defining moment of her LIFE? REALLY?
