Rachel Mitchell, the prosecutor who was hired by the Judiciary Committee to head up questioning surrounding Dr. Ford's allegations, wrote a memo to the Committee stating that there is not enough evidence in this accusation to bring a legal case. She concluded:
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.

Mitchell's memo details the many problems and inconsistencies with Dr. Ford's account, including the fact that it took Dr. Ford 30 years to even name Kavauagh:
Dr. Ford has struggled to identify Judge Kavanaugh as the assailant by name.
• No name was given in her 2012 marriage therapy notes.
• No name was given in her 2013 individual therapy notes
• Dr. Ford’s husband claims to recall that she identified Judge Kavanaugh by name in 2012. At that point, Judge Kavanaugh’s name was widely reported in the press as a potential Supreme Court nominee if Governor Romney won the presidential election.
• In any event, it took Dr. Ford over thirty years to name her assailant. Delayed disclosure of abuse is common so this is not dispositive.
