Dianne Feinstein’s plan to stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation just blew up in her face
Democrats are pulling every dirty trick in the book to block Judge Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation.
And Dianne Feinstein thought she finally found the trump card.
But her plan blew up in her face in spectacular fashion.
The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on moving forward with Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation process.
But Dianne Feinstein, the highest ranking Democrat on the committee, had a sneaky trick up her sleeve.
At the eleventh hour, she released a cryptic statement about possible dirt on Judge Kavanaugh, saying:
“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.”
This was a new low.
Feinstein was trying to portray Kavanaugh as yet another #MeToo offender.
She used a veiled threat under the cloak of an anonymous source to delay Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
But the FBI said there’s no “there there.”
The Daily Mail reports:
The FBI is declining to investigate Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s connection to a Democratic senator’s mysterious claim that troubling ‘information’ had come to her – information reportedly concerning sexual misconduct when he was in high school.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California said Thursday in a statement that she had referred her information to federal investigators, just a week before the U.S. Senate is scheduled to begin a series of votes on his nomination.
Feinstein is a liberal California Democrat who has called on her colleagues to slow down the march toward confirming President Donald Trump’s pick to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy.
The Washington Post reported Thursday evening that the FBI handed the senator’s materials over to the White House instead of opening a probe, and considered it an update to his background check file.
‘Upon receipt of the information on the night of September 12, we included it as part of Judge Kavanaugh’s background file, as per the standard process,’ an FBI official told the Post.
Democrats have pulled one publicity stunt after another to try to stop Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
This is yet another epic failure.
All signs point to Kavanaugh being confirmed by a tight vote.
So at the end of the day, Democrats will be left with nothing but egg on their face.
