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 lawmakers statement, but there has been much speculation that she is referring to a secret letter that has been the subject of intrigue on Capitol Hill over the last few days. A source familiar with the confirmation proceedings told Fox News that Feinstein received the letter back in July, but did not make its existence known publicly until Thursday.
The woman referenced in the letter has yet to be identified, but is being represented by Debra Katz, a whistleblower attorney who works with #MeToo survivors, according to The Intercept.
Despite the turmoil over the letter, a spokesperson for Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said there is no plan to delay Kavanaughs confirmation. Grassley set the panel's vote on Kavanaugh for Sept. 20 and Republicans hope to confirm Kavanaugh by the start of the new court session Oct. 1.
The White House attacked Feinstein's statment as an 11th hour attack on the nominee.
Throughout his confirmation process, Judge Kavanaugh has had 65 meetings with senatorsincluding with Senator Feinsteinsat through over 30 hours of testimony, addressed over 2,000 questions in a public setting and additional questions in a confidential session," White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec said in a statement. "Not until the eve of his confirmation has Sen. Feinstein or anyone raised the specter of new information about him."

Well, it's good to know that the FBI/DOJ/CIA/NSA/DHS are still squarely siding with the democrat party and against the USA.
Read somewhere that this is related to something that allegedly occurred while Kavanaugh was in High School.
Just when you thought the Democrats couldn’t out democrat themselves.
Not typically.........but in some cases..yes.
"This guy flirted with me and swatted my behind, I'm lucky to be alive today."
