On Thursday, Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) released a cryptic accusation against the Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh claiming he was involved in a matter that federal authorities need to investigate. Her office released a statement in regards to her allegation, “I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. That individual strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further, and I have honored that decision. I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities.”
It is reported that Feinstein received information pertaining to Kavanaugh in a letter sent to her by Rep. Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA) in July, which means she knew about this matter for several weeks. The information in the letter alleges “sexual misconduct” between Kavanuagh and an unnamed woman from their days in high school.
A spokesman for Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) released a statement in response to Feinstein’s allegations,
At this time, he has not seen the letter in question, and is respecting the request for confidentiality. There’s no plan to change the committee’s consideration of Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination
The Final Hail Mary: Democrats do not have the votes to stop the Kavanaugh confirmation and they have tried every stunt in the book to stop it from happening. Their delay or derail tactics have not worked as of yet and the politically motivated 11th-hour attempt to scare moderate GOP members away from a “yea” vote will not work. This was best captured in a tweet by Senator John Cornyn (R-TX)
Let me get this straight: this is statement about secret letter regarding a secret matter and an unidentified person. Right. https://t.co/G6qVWdITbo
