Senate Republicans Shamelessly Target Dianne Feinstein Over Ford’s Letter Exposing Kavanaugh

Senate Republicans have launched an investigation against Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein to determine whether she leaked a confidential letter from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

You read that right. Republicans are more enraged that Dr. Ford’s letter became public than the fact that an accused sexual harasser is one step away from being voted into to the Supreme Court.

“Sen. Feinstein will be investigated,” Sen. Tom Cotton said Sunday.

Cotton, an Arkansas Republican, also said lawyers recommended to Blasey Ford by Democrats will face a Washington, D.C., bar investigation for not telling her that Senate Judiciary Committee staffers would travel to California to interview her about her sexual-assault allegation.

“They have betrayed her,” Cotton said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “She has been victimized by Democrats … on a search-and-destroy mission for Brett Kavanaugh.”

Yup, Republicans are now pretending that they feel sorry for Dr. Ford.

He also said Democrats would be at fault if women become less likely to report sexual assaults now because they did not keep Ford’s request confidential, as she had asked.

“Any impact that this entire episode has had,“ Cotton told John Dickerson, “on women’s willingness to come forward and report sexual assault, which I encourage them all to do immediately after it happens, is caused by the Democrats, is caused by Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer not respecting her requests for confidentiality.“

Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, had received a letter from Ford some months ago describing the incident with Kavanaugh but had kept the material confidential, as requested in the letter. At some point, information about Ford was leaked to the press, though the California Democrat denied that she or her office were responsible.
