Last-Minute Kavanaugh Attack by Feinstein Dirty Trick on Eve of Confirmation

Supreme court Justice Anthony Kennedy retires reshape court Kavanaugh liberals blockSen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-Calif.) decision to sit for a little more than a month on an allegation of sexual assault against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, contradicted by a witness, from more than 30 years ago when he was in high school was a dirty trick not designed to get to the truth — but to prevent any vetting of the allegation during the lengthy process when Kavanaugh could have responded directly.

Now, with the Kavanaugh Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation vote set for Sept. 20, Palo Alto University professor Christine Blasey Ford has come forward, setting up a “me too” moment akin to Anita Hill testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1991 in an attempt to torpedo Clarence Thomas’ nomination.

Mark Judge, a writer in Washington, D.C., who was accused of being in the room with Kavanaugh and appears as the attack’s sole witness besides Ford and is accused of turning up the music to hide the attack, told the Weekly Standard, “It’s just absolutely nuts. I never saw Brett act that way.”

It is telling that Feinstein never shared the letter she received in July with her Senate Judiciary Committee colleagues, including Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), nor did she bring the allegations forward during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing when he would have had an opportunity to respond directly.

Instead, she waited until after the confirmation hearing as the committee is now preparing to vote, in what can only be described as a desperate, last-ditch effort to derail the nomination with an uncorroborated rumor.

Feinstein had explained her rationale for not coming forward with the information, but instead passing it off to the FBI: “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. I have honored that decision. I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities.”

Since Ford has come forward, the Senate Judiciary Committee has issued a statement: “If Ranking Member Feinstein and other Committee Democrats took this claim seriously, they should have brought it to the full Committee’s attention much earlier. Instead, they said nothing during two joint phone calls with the nominee in August, four days of lengthy public hearings, a closed session for all committee members with the nominee where sensitive topics can be discussed and in more than 1,300 written questions.”

The FBI for its part has passed on an investigation, according to the Washington Post’s Seung Min Kim and Elise Viebeck: “Several officials confirmed that the letter was referred to the FBI. But the bureau does not plan to launch a criminal investigation, according to a person familiar with the matter — a probe that would normally be handled by local authorities if it were within the statute of limitations.”

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) blasted the last-minute move by Feinstein in a statement, saying, “I do not intend to allow Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation to be stalled because of an 11th hour accusation that Democrats did not see fit to raise for over a month. The Senator in the best position to determine the credibility of these accusations made the conscious decision not to take action on them, and the authorities to whom the accusations have been referred have decided not to take action either. Judge Kavanaugh has denied these accusations categorically, the only other potential witness has no recollection of the alleged event, and now 65 women who knew Brett in high school have come forward as witnesses of his strong character.”

Hatch was referring to a letter released by Grassley of 65 women who knew Kavanaugh and attested to his character: “We are women who have known Brett Kavanaugh for more than 35 years and knew him while he attended high school between 1979 and 1983. For the entire time we have known Brett Kavanaugh, he has behaved honorably and treated women with respect.”

With the Kavanaugh vote still set for Sept. 20, Senators Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) have called for the hearing to be delayed so the committee can hear the allegations. If these allegations are to be vetted, both Ford and Judge must be invited to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee immediately under oath.

Feinstein says she doesn’t know if the accuser is telling the truth. So why don’t we have the confirmation vote NOW?

The left have absolutely no morals. They start smear tactics..very much a part of their dna. It was said that hitler worked on this principle..”Tell a lie, make it big, repeat it often, and the majority of the people will believe you.” The evil people on the left today have further developed this belief and behavior.

This is insane!!!!
I wonder how much money she (DF) received from George Soros. They should also check for how much money her husband has received from Communist China; and match the timing of the deposits with any legislation that she handled which would benefit them. Her “Driver” may know more, FBI should investigate that too. These Dems are totally evil.

Take a poll of whether the Senate should go forward, and then turn the results over to the committee and Senate. What else are polls good for than to get a large group’s input? I will give you my secret ballot now of whether to go forward with confirmation – YES..

Sick effort to hurt an honorable man and slur our judges. I wish some action could be taken against an accuser who clearly desires to hurt both an honorable judge and to misuse our Supreme Court appointment process to sway future decisions toward the opinions if the one accusing.

This “Personal Destruction” tactic has been played by Democrats for decades … (Robert Bourke, Newt Gingrich, Ronny Jackson, Mike Flynn, Bob Livingston, etc.). As long as Republicans cower, hide, and don’t fight back, it will continue. One result of this action is a sure bet, Kavanagh’s life will never be the same. Like Clarence Thomas this accusation, true or untrue, will hang over his formerly happy family from now on. And Democrats have the nerve to criticize treatment of illegal alien children at the southern border. Go low Diane Feinstein, your conscience should give you trouble sleeping at night.

Ms Ford may have had an incident, many years ago. but it is not unusual that the person thought to be the “perpetrator” is NOT the one that is initially identified. It is early in the “recalling” of the incident, and may be incomplete….Ms Ford needs to have additional counseling to work through what and who, regarding the situation.

I’m sick and tired of these democrats going after anyone that Trump supports. This woman that came forward either either a democrat or getting paid off to say this.
There were 65 ladies that said he was always nice.

Why does it seem that every time a conservative male is preparing to be voted on, the left produces some woman who claims that said candidate abused her decades ago? After the damage to the candidate is done, this same women then disappears – her accusations largely disproven. Another win for the “unbiased” media!

This is beyond ridiculous. Seems that everyone who doesn’t agree with your politics can call you out on sexual misconduct. So much so that it is pretty much meaningless. If this woman has been traumatized for so long, why didn’t she prosecute when she had the chance? Why, suddenly when this guy is up for Supreme Court Justice did it occur to her to take action? Just an attempt at smearing what everyone who knows this man says is a most honorable man. This is hogwash!!!

I have this feeling these corrupt socialist will drag this out and these dumb ass republicans will take the bait as usual. I would have them to wipe their damn butt with it, this was a made up fairy tale that the socialist thought up just to drag this out as far as they can. They will drag to pass the Nov. election, then what. This woman will never set down to prove her point and keep delaying it. I am madder then hell these republicans fell for this crap and they wonder why they have a low poll number God help us if we lose this election to these corrupt criminals socialist democrats that want to take us to a third world status like Cuba.

Why aren’t they as indignant about the accusations against keith elder, or whatever his name is, from minnesota and why aren’t republicans going after him with equal vigor? They aren’t saying a thing.

If Flake and Corker can’t see through this Liberal ploy for what it is, NONSENSE, then they need to leave the party. Vote now and confirm the nomination. Enough liberal BS already.

Finestein is older than dirt and as dirty as dirt. Tell her spend her time cleaning up San Francisco not tarnishing the reputation of a solid citizen. Between Spartacus and her, the dems are a complete embarrassment. The rest of the world must be laughing as we self destruct.
