Feinstein hints more secrets on Kavanaugh are coming as she stops cooperating with Grassley

Powered by Topple

The likely goal of Democrats is to delay a vote on confirming Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and Sen. Diane Feinstein, who produced the letter of a woman accusing the nominee of inappropriate behavior, has yet another trick up her sleeve.

Adding to the cause to delay the vote, Feinstein says there’s still more that senators don’t know about Kavanaugh, according to Talking Points Memo.

No details are given on what other secrets the California Democrat is sitting on, but Feinstein is reportedly rejecting a plan by Senate Judiciary Committee chair Chuck Grassley to arrange follow-up calls to hear from the accuser Christine Blasey Ford before the vote, rather than rescheduling another hearing.

Grassley issued a statement that called into question Feinstein’s “deeply disturbing” behavior regarding the confirmation process.

“Unfortunately, committee Republicans have only known this person’s identity from news reports for less than 24 hours and known about her allegations for less than a week,” he said in the statement.

“Senator Feinstein, on the other hand, has had this information for many weeks and deprived her colleagues of the information necessary to do our jobs. The Minority withheld even the anonymous allegations for six weeks, only to later decide that they were serious enough to investigate on the eve of the committee vote, after the vetting process had been completed.”

One thing is certain, Feinstein brought none of this up during the confirmation hearings, when she questioned Kavanaugh under oath — hearings that are now over.

Here’s a sampling of reactions from Twitter that exposes Sen. Feinstein’s despicable tactics for what they are:
