Democrats hit a new low in their crusade against Kavanaugh

Democrats’ desperate drive to derail the Brett Kavanaugh nomination just took a despicable new turn with a last-minute push to exploit an anonymous allegation that Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s been sitting on for months.

With Kavanaugh poised to win confirmation with up to 55 votes, Judiciary Committee Dems late Wednesday plainly held a final does-anyone-have-anything? session. DiFi mentioned a confidential letter she’d received over the summer — and by the next day the partisans had made the core facts public.

In the letter, originally sent to Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.), a woman allegedly claims she was the victim of some Kavanaugh “sexual misconduct” … back in high school.

As Feinstein explains, “That individual strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further, and I have honored that decision.”

Except that, after the Wednesday meeting, she did other Dems’ bidding by passing the letter on to “federal investigative authorities.” And some Democrat(s) quickly clued in the media.

It’s an extremely safe bet that political operatives are now pressuring the woman to go public — against her express wishes. That, after all, is what Democrats did to Anita Hill a quarter-century ago.

Absent that, no investigator can do a thing — the allegation runs back at least 35 years, to when Kavanaugh was a teenager. Which is surely why Feinstein did nothing in the months

3. Here's the contents

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/sep/13/brett-kavanaugh-dianne-feinstein-confidential-letter

"A source who said they were briefed on the contents of the letter said it described an incident involving Kavanaugh and a woman that took place when both were 17 years old and at a party. According to the source, Kavanaugh and a male friend had locked her in a room against her will, making her feel threatened, but she was able to get out of the room. The Guardian has not verified the apparent claims in the letter. It is not yet clear who wrote it."

4. My "take" on this is that it shows the maturity of Dianne Feinstein when compared with

her infantile fellow Democrats with little or no impulse control.

So she had the letter but never said much about it, figuring correctly it was no big deal.

But then when her juvenile colleagues learned of it, they urged her to release it. She kept insisting, "But it's no big deal," but they kept ragging on her to release it.

Well, apparently it's proven no big deal, and an egg on the faces of those trying to embarrass the next Supreme Court justice.

But Di had warned them; it wasn't any big deal.

That's my take anyway, and again reinforces my conviction that as long as California's going to have a Democrat senator elected this year, despite her Great Age, Di deserves the win,

6. The FBI needs to investigate DiFi for suppressing this for months

If it's supposedly so serious then why did she sit on it?
