The ‘secret’ information in the letter Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) was given has now been ‘leaked.’ And if there was any doubt that this is a hit piece meant to try to take out Brett Kavanaugh, the facts pretty much expose it.
The letter concerns the allegation that Kavanaugh supposedly tried to force himself on a girl during a party in high school in the presence of another boy.
The problem with this whole scenario?
Feinstein was given this letter pertaining to the woman in question in July but never brought it up to the committee, even in confidential session. She did nothing about it until two days ago when she cryptically referred to it in a tweet and then sent the letter to the FBI.
Problem? The woman in question refuses to go on record, refuses to come forward. Feinstein didn’t even give the FBI the name of the woman, redacting the information while giving them the letter. So there was no way for them to even investigate it.
That shows it was all about being a political hit. Otherwise why mention it at all if you aren’t going on record and you aren’t going to give the FBI the relevant information?
Yet the woman appears to have had no difficulty talking to media about the alleged allegation. who then approached the third person allegedly present in the incident, the other boy, now conservative author Mark Judge.
Mark Judge categorically denies any such thing occurred, as does Brett Kavanaugh.
Meanwhile, 65 women who knew Kavanaugh at that time have signed on to a letter saying they never saw him treat any woman except in an honorable way.
One of the women, Virginia Hume detailed why they signed onto the letter.
On Friday, a group of women who knew Brett in high school sent a letter in support of him to Senators Grassley and Feinstein. I am one of those 65 women. Having seen some of the reaction to the letter, I’d like to clear up a few things:
The letter was conceived and drafted by friends of Brett’s, and it was drafted after allegations came out on Thursday. I learned about the letter from a friend and fellow signatory. Others learned about it the same way. Those surprised at the speed with which it came together should see it as yet another testament to Brett’s excellent reputation.
Liberals being liberals are questioning the 65 women and Judge who are willing to go on record but not questioning the slippery footwork of the Democrats and the secret accusation of the person who wouldn’t go on record.
Here’s the thing. It isn’t the GOP who sat on the information and delayed dropping it until after the hearing. That was Feinstein, for maximum effect.
So either the Democrats are trying to use this to derail the confirmation and extend the hearings, to try to influence Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski or just to put an asterisk on Kavanaugh so some will always doubt him.
And that is just despicable.
