Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) informed “Face the Nation” host John Dickerson Sunday that the Senate is investigating their colleague Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) over the letter she got from Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. She states the Supreme Court candidate sexually assaulted her in high school. Feinstein got the letter over the summertime, however it was leaked to the press simply a couple weeks earlier, in the nick of time for Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote. It was suspicious timing, and Cotton wants to get to the bottom of it.As quickly as Feinstein got Ford’s letter, she must have shared it with Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), then revealed it to the FBI and have them do a peaceful investigation. Instead, the letter dripped and breached Ford’s privacy.
“They have betrayed her,” Cotton added. “She has actually been taken advantage of by Democrats.”
So, they are examining Feinstein and her staff.
Dickerson asked Cotton why females who have been sexually abused would step forward with their stories if, like Dr. Ford, they are not thought by the Senate?
“Any effect that this whole episode has had, on women’s willingness to come forward and report sexual assault, which I motivate them all to do immediately after it happens, is brought on by the Democrats, is caused by Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer not respecting her ask for privacy,” Cotton stated. Cotton also noted they are examining Ford’s lawyers, who stopped working to tell their customer that the Senate Judiciary Committee offered to meet her in California for a personal statement, so she wouldn’t have to face her fear of flying and board an airplane to Washington.At a rally over
the weekend, President Trump mocked Feinstein for pretending not to know who dripped the letter.”Perhaps she didn’t, however that was
the worst body language I have actually ever seen,”Trump said.The president once again poked enjoyable her at his press conference at the
Rose Garden Monday.”She probably dripped it however who am I to say?” The FBI is presently investigating
the sexual assault claims against Kavanaugh.
