Veteran sex-crimes prosecutor will question Kavanaugh, accuser at Thursday hearingExternal Link

An Arizona prosecutor who specializes in sex crimes has been tabbed by Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee to question Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the woman who has accused him of a teenage sexual assault when the committee holds an extraordinary confirmation hearing Thursday. Rachel Mitchell, who works in the Maricopa County Attorney's office in Phoenix, was picked for her legal experience and objectivity, according to committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. The 11 Republican members of the committee are all men, but Grassley said the impetus for having just one questioner was to "depoliticize the process." Christine Blasey Ford, a California college professor, has charged that Judge Kavanaugh attempted to rape her when they were both teenagers. "We have hired a female assistant to go on staff and to ask these questions in a respectful and professional way," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R., Ky., told reporters earlier Tuesday. "We want this hearing to be handled very professionally, not a political sideshow" The Washington Post first reported the selection of Mitchell.
