The attorney who Senate Judiciary Republicans are bringing in to question Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford (should she actually testify on Thursday) is being identified as Arizona attorney Rachel Mitchell, who has spent a career prosecuting sex crimes:

Senate Republicans announced late Tuesday that Rachel Mitchell, a decorated career sex crimes prosecutor with decades of experience, will handle the questioning of Christine Blasey Ford, the California professor accusing Supreme Court nominee of sexual assault decades ago, at a scheduled hearing on Thursday.

Saying he wants the hearing to be a “safe, comfortable, and dignified” environment, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley wrote in a statement that the move would help take politics out of the proceedings.

Here’s how the Washington Post’s “conservative” columnist Jennifer Rubin framed Mitchell’s career:

Narrator: She’s NOT “from Sheriff Joe’s operation”:

In case anybody needed even more proof that facts and Jennifer Rubin have an adversarial relationship, there it is.

Gee, if a Republican man diminished the career of a successful woman in such a way just to try and score cheap political points, imagine Rubin’s reaction.

What are the odds of that happening?
