    Senator Dianne Feinstein Won’t Set Up Call for Kavanaugh Accuser to Testify It’s now official: This entire situation is a farce that needs to end immediately. Anything less shows the Democrats are profoundly unserious about the allegations being made against Brett Kavanaugh. Over the weekend, Senator Dianne Feinstein made waves by going public with accusations against President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee. First, she revealed that someone who knew Kavanaugh in high school accused him of sexually assaulting her. Then the accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, actually came out publicly. Senate Republicans tried to pull a fast one on her by challenging...
  • NYC Bar Withholds Review of Kavanaugh for Supreme Court Seat (Like they did Clarence Thomas)

    The New York Law Review ^ | September 13, 2018 | Christine Simmons
    In a rare move for the bar group, the New York City Bar Association is withholding a rating of Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s U.S. Supreme Court nominee. The New York City Bar said Thursday that it was unable to determine whether Kavanaugh is qualified to serve on the Supreme Court “because the public record is incomplete on whether he possesses the personal integrity necessary to serve in that role.” The city bar assesses whether a Supreme Court nominee is “highly qualified,” “qualified,” or “not qualified” based on a set of several factors. It’s rare the city bar has withheld...

    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.

    It looks like I spoke too soon when I said that the Kavanaugh confirmation process never reached the nauseating lows of the Bork and Thomas hearings. The Washington Times reports that Sen. Dianne Feinstein has asked federal investigators to probe a secret complaint about Kavanaugh. The complaint, reportedly lodged by woman, pertains to an incident that supposedly occurred when Kavanaugh and the women were in high school. The woman passed her complaint to Rep. Anna Eshoo, a California Democrat. She apparently is unwilling to come forward publicly to talk about the alleged incident. Buzzfeed contacted the woman rumored to have...
  • Democrats Force Committee to Postpone Vote on Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh Until Next Week

    The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh today to the Supreme Court but the panel ultimate decided to postpone a vote on his nomination until next Thursday. Senate Democrats grandstanded during today's Senate Judiciary Committee — attempting to get the committee to adjourn. Knowing Democrats would attempt to stop further consideration of Kavanaugh's nomination, Republican committee chairman Sen. Charles Grassley sought and obtained a vote on a motion to delay the nomination vote for one week. The vote on Kavanaugh's nomination will now take place on SEPTEMBER 20. Republican Senate leaders now anticipate...

    Today, Diane Feinstein, Senator from California, revealed that she referred a secret letter to the FBI, for a thorough investigation. In this letter, an anonymous woman claims that Brent Kavanaugh acted sexually inappropriately with her when they were both in high school. This is an extraordinarily disturbing development. And while this revelation -- known all summer and produced after he has been questioned by the full Senate -- is enough to disqualify anyone from any appointed position, there is much more to reveal. Let us all consider the momentous seriousness of this horrific accusation. There is nobody reading this column...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., on Thursday threw a cryptic curveball at Brett Kavanaugh, insinuating the Supreme Court nominee could be guilty of a crime even as Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee seek to delay his confirmation. The vague accusation comes after the Senate Judiciary Committee already grilled Kavanaugh and other witnesses and prepares to vote on sending his nomination to the full Senate. A spokesperson for Feinstein declined Fox News’ request to elaborate on the lawmaker’s statement, but there has been much speculation that she is referring to a secret letter that has been the subject of intrigue on...

    The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dianne Feinstein of California, said Thursday that she has referred a letter concerning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh to federal authorities. "I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court," Sen. Feinstein said. "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." Feinstein's announcement came shortly after the committee set a date to vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation. It followed a report Wednesday night...
  • So THIS is what Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s secret Brett Kavanaugh letter was about?

    As Twitchy reported earlier, Sen. Dianne Feinstein announced that she’d turned over to authorities a letter that had some incriminating information about SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh and a woman, possibly reaching back as far as his high school years. Of course, idiots like ThinkProgress’s Ian Millhiser floated the idea that Kavanaugh “may have committed a very serious crime — possibly even a sex crime.” A lot of people starting making #MeToo accusations. With that insinuation floating around all day, The Guardian has a source who claims to know the contents of the letter, and … well, it doesn’t even rise...

    The Lid ^ | 9/13/18 | Jeff Dunetz
    After a week of lies, biased editing of his statements, and one fake Spartacus imitation, supreme court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh was unscathed by the left and looked to be on his way to being confirmed by the entire Senate. But the left demanded that the Democrats do something to prevent Kavanaugh from the inevitable approval. Therefore, Sen. Feinstein (D-CA) who despite being a leftist has problems with the far-left wing of her party tried a last-minute ploy to scuttle the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh that failed so miserably it ended \up making herself look like the court jester. Earlier today...

    I believe that we should end abortion on demand, and at every opportunity I have translated this belief into votes in the House of Representatives. I am opposed to the use of federal funds to pay for elective abortions, and will continue to support amendments to prohibit the funding of elective abortions for federal employees and Medicaid recipients. Also, notwithstanding the result in Webster, I continue to believe that the Supreme Court's decision in Roe v. Wade should be reversed. Richard J. Durbin Member of Congress

    Yet another aging Democrat put on a nationally-televised demonstration of the need for Congressional term limits. Watch as 78-year-old Patrick Leahy makes reference to an email that doesn’t actually exist. Senator Leahy attempts to insinuate the email in question was stolen from him SIXTEEN YEARS AGO as nearly everyone in the hearing room, including Leahy’s own staff, look on increasingly confused as to what the senator is talking about. For his part, Judge Kavanaugh shows a remarkable degree of patience while also managing to entrap the senator in his own confused lie. From there a badly beaten Leahy makes a...

    "Sixteen years ago, a colleague of mine on the staff of Senator Hatch discovered that Democrat staff of the Senate Judiciary Committee had negligently placed their documents on our shared server without protections. I admit that we exploited this to learn simple things about their plans to attack Bush judicial nominees at the behest of the left wing interest groups. I also did pursuant to my duty under the Code of Ethics for Government Service. The documents also revealed unlawful and unethical conduct by Senators.

    Every 13 years, just like clockwork, Dick Durbin opens his yap to insult the people keeping America safe . . . In 2005, Sen. Durbin took to the floor of the Senate to accuse the US military of acting like “Nazis, Soviets in their gulags, or some mad regime: Pol Pot or others” in its treatment of Gitmo prisoners. That earned Durbin the enduring sobriquet of “Dick Turban” from Rush Limbaugh. Durbin was back at it over the weekend. This time, the subject of his slander was ICE. Calling for its abolition, Durbin said: “Look at ICE. What a group...

    Democrats are converting their emotional protests against “family separation” into unpopular calls for the catch-and-release of many Central American migrants into ordinary Americans’ jobsites and schools. The pre-election, pro-migration push is a huge risk, according to a poll by The Economist and YouGov which shows 3:1 public opposition to the Democrats’s catch-and-release policy. That opposition to catch-and-release was reinforced by President Donald Trump’s June 20 Executive Order to keep families together in detention until their appeal is decided by a judge. Many Democrats are pushing their demand that migrants caught at the border be quickly released into Americans’ workplaces and...
