The sex crimes prosecutor hired by the Senate Judiciary Committee to interrogate Dr. Christine Blasey Ford went out drinking with Republican operatives working for Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) on Friday, Huffington Post reporter Laura Bassett reports.

Maricopa County, Arizona prosecutor Rachel Mitchell was hired by Senate Republicans to question Ford, who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault and attempted rape when she was a 15-year-old high school student.

Republicans ended Mitchell’s role when she began to question Kanaugh and began pointing out inconsistencies in his testimony.
