Rachel Mitchell Question Time
Christine Blasey Ford appeared before a Senate committee to accuse Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her. And Chairman Grassley didn’t want old white guy Republicans to look like they were bullying her. So he hired professional prosecutor Rachel Mitchell to question Dr. Ford.
Good idea maybe in theory but in practice it was weird. She would ask a question and when her five minutes were up it would be a Democrat’s turn. Then after five more minutes, back to Ms. Mitchell.
They dropped the plan during Judge Kavanaugh’s appearance.
