Breaking News: Sen Feinstein releases confidential doc re: Kavanaugh to the FBI

https://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2018/09/13/feinstein-kavanaugh-confiden

(CBS SF) — California Sen. Dianne Feinstein has referred a confidential document that contains information on the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination to the FBI, the senator announced Thursday. “I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Feinstein said in a statement. “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 announcement by Sen. Feinstein, the top-ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, was followed by a call by Sen. Richard Durbin (D-Ill.) to postpone a Committee vote on the Kavanaugh nomination. Durbin said the referral went to the FBI but also did not say what the information contained.

“No idea what they are going to find,” Durbin told CNN. “I think the FBI is the appropriate agency and that’s where it was referred.”

Durbin also said he does not believe the committee should vote on Kavanaugh “until all the information is before the committee.”

In a statement, White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec said Kavanaugh has been “thoroughly and repeatedly vetted” by the FBI for government positions over the past 25 years and accused Democrats of trying to delay the nomination.

“Throughout his confirmation process, Judge Kavanaugh has had 65 meetings with senators — including with Senator Feinstein — sat through over 30 hours of testimony, addressed over 2,000 questions in a public setting and additional questions in a confidential session. Not until the eve of his confirmation has Sen. Feinstein or anyone raised the specter of new ‘information’ about him,” Kupec said.

“Sen. (Chuck) 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 his confirmation,” she added. (More at link above, including a video of news show on CBS TV)

###
Apparently the document reveals the name of a woman who is all #MeToo about Kavanaugh. But since the person involved does not want her identity released, she will apparently remain anonymous. We now officially live inside a land of DOJ, FBI surveillance of political opponents running a legit campaign for the Oval Office, redaction of information when documents regarding that surveillance are released, and now anonymous complainants who can upstage the legit confirmation of a man to the Supreme Court.

  1. This goes back to his high school days if I am not mistaken. This has shades of Clarence Thomas. Whatever happen to the practice of facing your accuser.

  2. From Breitbart.

    The New York Times reports that officials “familiar with the matter” suggested that the letter had to do with “possible sexual misconduct” with Kavanaugh and a women when they were both in high school. Kavanaugh went to Georgetown Preparatory high school, which is an all-boys school.

  3. Keep the vote on schedule. Democrats have had plenty of time and Feinstein held this in order to have one final item to try for delays. If anything here is wrong, it’s on Feinstien

  4. The Democrats have amply demonstrated they are no longer bound by rules of civility which are the basis of a representative republic. When legislators follow no rules, the rest of the citizens are sure to follow. Uncivility of this order leads eventually to violent confrontation, and the Dems are making no secret of their desires in that direction.

  5. If the FBI has time to jump right on this, the FBI needs to be burned to the ground. Let us see.

    I would hope that this would come way below the Chinese spy who worked for Feinstein , Uranium 1, Mueller’s treatment of Whitey Bulger and Ruby Ridge.

    Their sense of priority is out of order.

    Sounds like a big nothing-burger.

    He might have kissed a girl. (Pearl clutching)

    The Guardian says he and another boy locked this girl in a room and she felt threatened. But she managed to get out. They were both 17 at the time.

  7. This is the baseball equivalent of trying to finish out the game with your left fielder on the mound.  He can’t throw but he’s the only one whose arm isn’t sore. This is the best they have, of the precious little they have left.

    I was thinking the guy selling peanuts in the stands instead of the left fielder to finish the game.

    Oh but if she hadn’t managed to get out on her own, then what? Multiple noogies?

    Of course, it could be the HS girl in question never had the talk with her mom:

    New Kavanaugh document surfaces, and will no doubt release the needed Dem effort to stop the guy in his tracks:

    Look, the guy can’t even spell his own name correctly!  He does not belong on the Supreme Court.

    We owe Dianne Feinstein (D-China) gratitude for uncovering this very important evidence.
