The prosecutor hired by Republicans to question Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, said she would not prosecute him.
Rachel Mitchell, a career prosecutor, told a group of Republican senators after the hearings on Thursday that she would not try to prosecute Kavanaugh if Ford attempted to press charges against the judge, according to The Washington Post.
“Mitchell spelled it out and was clear with senators that she could not take this anywhere near a courtroom,” an unnamed source told Fox News.
Mitchell reportedly added that she wouldn’t even try to get a search warrant, based on the evidence that she heard.
The Senate is set to vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation Friday afternoon. It remains to be seen if the two Republican senators seen as swing votes, Maine’s Susan Collins and Alaska’s Lisa Murkowski, will vote for or against the judge.
