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.

I'm not sure why the MSM kept commenting that Rachel Mitchell wasnt really effective. I think she did a fine job at getting Christine Ford to relax just enough to poke holes in her story. Of course, you'd have to actually be paying attention to spot them......
I agree2agree on that one--at first I thought that she was being overtly sympathetic because she already had a bias, but then I recognized what she was doing a few minutes into the process.
I will say, though, that I don't think that it was to poke holes in the story, but to get her to speak more freely and reveal holes that many knew already existed. The best way to get someone to trip over their own story is just to let them keep talking and talking and talking.

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.
Typing “kill” into Twitter’s search function currently returns a shocking result at the top of its search suggestions: “#KillKavanaugh.” It’s also currently the third autocompleted suggestion in searches for “ki” and the fourth suggestion in searches for “k” as of this writing.

Yes this is the insane reasoning we are seeing
She accuses him with no date whatsoever (in fact first saying mid 1980’s, then changing that to 82)
Then when he attempts to show where he was almost every day, they pick one day out and say this is proof the assault must have happened
It’s absolutely insane

The one thing I have absolutely no doubt about is that the Democrats sat on this for several weeks and manipulated the whole situation for the sole purpose of using it to their political advantage to prevent Kavanaugh's confirmation.
