Senate Democrats on the Judiciary Committee are working overtime to delay Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.
Ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) is up to her old tricks.
On Thursday, Feinstein said in a statement to the feds that she “received information from an individual concerning the nomination.”
The New York Times is reporting: Two officials familiar with the matter say the incident detailed in the Feinstein letter involved possible sexual misconduct between Judge Kavanaugh and a woman when they were both in high school.
Feinstein released a statement via The Intercept:
“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.”
The White House responded Thursday:
“Senator Schumer promised to ‘oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have,’ and it appears he is delivering with this 11th hour attempt to delay the confirmation.”
White House responds to reports of Kavanaugh letter. "Not until the eve of his confirmation has Sen. Feinstein or anyone raised the specter of new ‘information’ about him." pic.twitter.com/AH0uRDP7Nz
