it seems like the goal is to assemble a list of minor technicalities for a memo concluding that nothing happened

I'm not a lawyer or an expert but I feel like you can see the basic framework of what she's trying to accomplish: exhaust Dr. Ford, try to "catch her" in some errant details ("Was the music turned down? Could you hear the conversation? How do you know there was a conversation?") to cast doubt on her ability to recount the incident reliably, focus on the most minute details as an intimidation tactic. You know, typical prosecutor shit.

it's a pretty classic approach to discrediting a witness but Dr. Ford is a very good witness

I think this is mostly by design but sometimes it comes across more like an unexpected byproduct of the format. like the strategy itself is for mitchell’s questioning to seem prosecutorial and thorough, but the format is highlighting the stilted nature of the whole thing, so mitchell ends up looking cold, cynical, and unprepared

Maybe they will claim a psych and reveal that the map has been doctored and her house was actually three feet to the north than depicted!

and it seems like it's not working at all

It shows that they don't understand sexual assault, that a victim (sufficiently composed) might be able to speak at length about their trauma because it was something they experienced and have lived with and considered for decades. Their premise relies on her being full of shit.
