Now that the accusations are falling apart, the Left is grasping at new straws.
Rachel Mitchell, the prosecutor that questioned Dr. Ford in her appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee has just released a memo that decimates her story in the allegations against Judge Kavanaugh. In her memo to the Committee she states:
In the legal context, here is my bottom line: A “he said, she said” case is incredibly difficult to prove. But this case is even weaker than that. Dr. Ford identified other witnesses to the event, and those witnesses either refuted her allegations or failed to corroborate them. For the reasons discussed below, I do not think that a reasonable prosecutor would bring this case based on the evidence before the Committee. Nor do I believe that this evidence is sufficient to satisfy the preponderance-of-the-evidence standard.
Her 9 page memo detailed the inconsistencies of Dr. Ford, bolstering the point that this is even weaker than a “he said, she said” case.
Another anonymous accusation.
Apparently there was another anonymous accusation received by the office of Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA). The anonymous accuser in this case offered no location, no date, no corroboration, no names. It would seem that the trend is delving downward with regard to the believability of these accusations with the follow on allegations being even more fact free than those previously made. It doesn’t help with a Friend of Ford Lawyer Asks More Women to Come Forward Against Kavanaugh according to the Washington Free Beacon.
Having written a short discussion of possible timing of any new allegations, these were rendered moot by news that The Kavanaugh FBI Investigation Could Be Done Soon. But, these are included for the sake of completeness.
The rationale for the timing of any new accusations will rest on a couple of factors.
One, any new allegation will most likely emerge after the news cycle has settled down, while still being in the mind of the public. This will serve to emulate the story pattern in other cases of the “Me Too” movement while keeping the issue below the saturation point.
Two, if a new allegation crops up too soon it’s inconsistencies and/or implausibility’s will cause it to dissipate before it’s had the intended effect.
Three, by the same token, if the timing is too long – close to the deadline – there won’t be enough for it to be properly exploited by the media and the nation’s Left [But we’re repeating ourselves]. It has to thread the needle in staying plausible to engender enough support for as yet another delay in the vote.
[Suffice it to say, this is a classic case of wanting to be wrong]
The Left is now falling back on strawman arguments.
Now, as David French as detailed over at National Review, the Case Against Kavanaugh Is Collapsing. So the Left has been busying itself with fall back positions such as the ‘Choirboy’ strawman.
For reference, we present the definition of a strawman a from the Oxford English Dictionary:
An intentionally misrepresented proposition that is set up because it is easier to defeat than an opponent’s real argument.
In this case it’s the false proposition that Judge Kavanaugh claimed to be a ‘Choir Boy’ in his youth. Since he clearly stated that he imbibed in beer during a certain time period, the contention is that he is some how unsuitable as Supreme Court Justice. As with most strawman arguments, one only has to point out that this was never claimed to be the case to properly dismiss it.
Then there are the vague ‘Temperament’ issues that somehow have cropped up. Perish the thought that someone would issue a passionate rebuke to accusations meant to destroy their life and reputation. At this point in time it would seem that the media and the nation’s Left are merely trying to pile on more accusations or smears to cover for the previous allegations not standing up to the court of public opinion.
