The fix was in back in July, set up by the negligence of Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office. It was delay, delay, delay from the start.
Now that the Dems have their delay, do Republicans like Jeff Flake really believe they’re going to accept any findings that don’t remove Kavanaugh? Not a chance.
And yet, aren’t we glad Sen. Jeff Flake can sleep better at night? Please.
The only person Flake is trying to help is himself (let’s hope he’s unsuccessful). But by putting more time on the clock he’s allowed this now broken process to go on for at least another week.
What a pathetic showing by Democrats and Flake.
Dianne Feinstein’s office received a letter from Christine Blasey Ford in July. Blasey Ford asked that the letter remain confidential. Somehow that letter leaked to the press at the worst possible moment for Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination chances. Now, Sen. Tom Cotton says Feinstein’s office will be investigated for leaking the letter. Fox News reports:
Sen. Tom Cotton said Sunday that Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office will be investigated to determine whether or not they leaked the confidential letter from Christine Blasey Ford that detailed allegations of sexual misconduct by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Feinstein, who represents California and who is the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, had received the letter from Ford sometime over the summer and was asked to keep it confidential. At some point, however, the letter was leaked to the press, although Feinstein denies that anyone in her office is responsible.
“They have betrayed her,” Cotton, R-Ark, said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” about Ford. ” “She has been victimized by Democrats … on a search-and-destroy mission for Brett Kavanaugh.”
Cotton added that the Democrats will be to blame if women stop coming forward to report sexual assaults because Ford’s confidentiality was compromised. The National Sexual Violence Resource Center found that 63 percent of incidents of sexual abuse go unreported to the police.
Along with the investigation into Feinstein’s handling of the letter, Cotton noted that lawyers recommended to Ford by Democrats will face a bar investigation in Washington, D.C., for telling her that Senate Judiciary Committee staffers were unwilling to travel to California to interview her about her sexual-assault allegation.
