During Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro’s opening monologue Saturday evening, she posed a simple question for Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Sen. Dianne Feinstein: “Are you stupid?”
The question concerned Feinstein’s vague announcement Thursday that she was in possession of a letter that accuses Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of some alleged crime that’s been forwarded to federal investigative authorities.
Though the California senator declined to provide any specifics, reports have emerged suggesting the allegations pertain to an sexual assault on a female peer that Kavanaugh allegedly carried out during his time in high school decades earlier.
Not only do the allegations remain uncorroborated, but the accuser has thus far refused to publicly reveal herself. Kavanaugh has likewise denied the allegations, while 65 women have reportedly signed a letter proclaiming his innocence. The FBI has meanwhile declined to investigate them.
What Pirro wanted to know during her monologue Saturday was why Feinstein had waited so long to reveal the shocking letter.
“Dianne, you’ve been sitting on this letter for almost two months,” she said. “You let Brett Kavanaugh go through days of Senate hearings, meetings with senators, answer an additional 263 pages of 1,300 follow-up written questions.”
And not once did the senator bring up the allegations.
“Dianne, as a ranking member of the committee interviewing Kavanaugh, how could you possibly let a moment pass without addressing the issue, and Kavanaugh is right in front of you and would have had the opportunity to respond? What were you thinking? Are you stupid? Why would you let it go?”
Feinstein waited until the last moment to reveal the letter because, one, she doesn’t believe the allegations, and two, she wanted to hurt Kavanaugh for sleazy political purposes, the judge theorized.
“Diane, why would you wait to even send it to the FBI?Is it because nothing in you and your pack of demon rats—that’s what I said demon rats—a.k.a Democrats’ — bag of tricks was working against Kavanaugh?” she said, adding that Feinstein and her peers, including grandstanding Sen. Cory Booker, were “unhinged lunatics.”
“You didn’t believe it,” she continued. “What other reason could there be. I know about women who have been sexually assaulted and the kind of pain they go from. It’s different from other crimes. It lingers and rears its head throughout their lives. I prosecuted on their behalf for decades. One of the ways we establish their credibility is with how recent their complaint is. A recent outcry is enormously powerful. An anonymous one 40 years later, not so much, Diane.”
It makes no sense that Feinstein kept quiet about the allegations, particularly in light of the ongoing #MeToo movement that Democrats purport to support.
“But silence?” Pirro added. “You bozos in Congress had taxpayers money to pay staffers who were victims of sexual misconduct from senators. Whose side are you on? Does it depend on the politics of the accused.”
The evidence — including the left’s treatment of disgraced former Sen. Al Franken — suggests it does depend one politics of the accused.
“Your audacity to try to destroy a man with impeccable credentials, harm his family and shift the burden of proof to the accused by alleging one of the most of heinous allegations imaginable shows your complete disregard for truth, justice and the American way,” Pirro concluded.
