This assessment from a professional in that "industry" is interesting.
She backs her assessment with actual facts which also is interesting.
I wonder if this lady will be on 60 minutes next week?

Not unless she starts saying Kavanaugh is guilty.

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...


I'm not sure it will work out exactly like they want even on that score.

There are some signs this is swinging against them at least in some places. A two day poll conducted in Missouri that concluded over the day of the committee hearing suddenly showed Josh Hawley taking a modest 2-pt. surge over McCaskill.

Keep in mind that day 1 was before the committee hearing and day 2 was day of the hearing.

It would be an all time epic backfire if the dems holding this info and using it to ambush kavanaugh caused them to not take the house or senate.
Do they not understand how many regular people are angry about this?

Excellent summary by Mitchell

Many of us participating on the live thread picked a lot of this up

However, it won’t matter to the Dems or the media

They know Kavanaugh is guilty and we are monsters for even reading Mitchell’s report here

And they will answer this while report with one word; trauma. Trauma explains everything about her changing her story etc.


And now the line of attack is switching to Kavanaugh is a drunk with a bad temperament

It’s sad to see how partisanship will allow people to ignore all evidence

I suffer from PTSD as a result of a violent childhood full of abuse. I also suffered violent sexual assaults. Two while I was under the age of 18 and one as an adult. Someone posted about trauma and memory in an earlier comment. There ARE gaps in my memory. I am a dissociative. To be able to "survive" or rather, my brain goes into fight or flight mode on its own and I put away those traumatic memories. In the moment of the attack as an adult, I "went away" and have no memory of the attack at all and was found wandering the street by a bus driver who called the police. The memory of the assault came out many years later in a terrible way when a complete stranger did something that brought out the actual detailed memory of the assault. The brain is a funny thing.

As for the "testimony" of Ms Ford. I took theater in High School and College and what I saw from her was a performance. Especially that little girl voice. When I relate ANY memory from my past, it is told in either a monotone or I am so emotional I either have a panic attack or I am bawling so hard I can barely speak. Ms Ford knew exactly how to work a room. I am a year younger than she, almost to the month, (I will be 52 in October) I am not as educated as she, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to recognize a scam when you see one being played out before you!

With all of this coming out as it is, and if the FBI investigation also supports Kavanaugh, I wonder if this will bring Flake back to voting to confirm Kavanaugh.

Because I saw the 60 minutes interview with him and Coons, and he seemed rather delighted to flip on the R's - they were laughing it up like they genuinely cared about 'the country being ripped apart'.

If Flake actually cared about that, he should acknowledge that the D's are being most divisive. It's the D's that have gone full retard, and there's no going back.

I was on the fence after the Ford and Kavanaugh testimonies, in part because I didn't watch Kavanaugh's but after this report from a 3rd party prosecutor, and the fact that R's have given the D's all that they've asked with regards to this circus, I'm done! The D's get no sympathy from me any longer.

Flake is already back to voting Kav. This is all just a show for the midterms. The only people this can hurt are Dems.

Sorry, I hope they caught your attacker

I agree with you that trauma can affect memory

The problem is it’s being applied very conveniently in this situation

All of the times her story has changed, and all of the details she can remember vs what she can’t

For example, she can’t remember how she got home, but she is absolutely sure she only had one beer?

And let’s not forget, trauma affecting memory also leaves a person ipenytonmistake or others suggestion

So it is entirely possible she is misremembering Kavanuagh as the attacker when her dislike of his policies, or the people she discussed this with dislike of Kavanaugh influences her memory

And lastly, her memory is literally the only thing we have to look at. There is no evidence and even the witnesses she gave don’t back up her story

So even if she is honest that trauma affected her memory and made her give so many different accounts, that should be a reason to question her account

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.


Answering my own question here....

So there possibly is a secondary reason for Mitchell specifically.

She became very well known for her first huge case...it was one of the first big convictions of a Catholic Priest.

Paul LeBrun was his name and he was sentenced to 111 years.

Wondering if she has been involved in the ongoing push for child trafficking and sex crimes that have been hitting the news fairly recently. Possibly as a consultant or other?

She was also heavily involved with the Maricopa county sheriff office in training for child sex crimes after they found that hundreds of cases had not been properly investigated.

This woman is a child sex crime specialist and appears to be quite the hound dog as far as vetting those involved.

Yes, it's as if a patchwork has been created where all the various pieces are true, but the end result simply isn't coherent.

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...
I still cannot sit with my back exposed. I have to sit with my back to a wall or with SOMETHING behind me....I have ALL of these strange personal foibles.....all from childhood. I have NO SINGLE horrible thing that I can say that DEFINES my life or my fears or my inability to be "normal"....to be, as my therapist calls me, "a normal person with trauma" with PTSD.
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? I had a shot-gun held to my head by my drunk brother who hated my guts when I was 30 and nobody knew I was at his house. Last time I saw him before he committed suicide. THIS wasn't even the defining moment of my life. (And that was a terrible night, indeed!)

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

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.


Speaking of her lawyers... I didn't realize that was Katz beside her. I was thinking the whole time it was a beta male from California.

Seems the democrats and lawyers have cleaned up her story to fit their agenda.

There are a couple of ways you can go after that kind of experience. Wilder is one of them. Who knows what goes on in the heads of those women though?

Not that I'm saying I believe any of her story in this instance. It's too full of holes.

But that's why we operate our justice system off of hard evidence before testimony, or at least that's why we're supposed to do it that way.

Agree wit h your post entirely




So disingenuous to equate teens messing around (And resulting in a misdemeanor
rather than a crime) with pedophillia.....grooming ..... and power play sex.

Their antics remind me of the middle school classroom bully that bullies you all year. When you get fed up with it and black his eye, he runs to the teacher and tells her you're a bully.
