    Senate Democrats Refer Secret Document About Brett Kavanaugh to FBI

    ‘Seems Like a Pretty Big Deal’: Senate Democrats Refer Secret Document About Brett Kavanaugh to FBI

    Less than a day after The Intercept reported that Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) received a letter that purportedly details an “incident” involving Trump Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh and “a woman while they were in high school,” Feinstein announced in a statement on Thursday that she has referred the secret document to the FBI.

    “I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” 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.”

    “This matter has been referred to the FBI for investigation,” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Il.) told BuzzFeed when asked about the letter.

    This is a guy who received stolen e-mails, perjured himself during his earlier confirmation hearings, and appears to believe that Trump can pardon himself. And the Democrats respond by investigating something he allegedly did in high school?!!

    Hoo boy. I hope this does the trick, but my gut instinct says this is going to backfire spectacularly.

    2. i don't care about what kavanaugh did in HS. why do we get this tittle-tattle

    but we don’t get a summary of his damn RECORD as a judge???  how about whatever those ‘secret’ docs were that were dumped the day before the hearing started?

    everything’s reduced to sexsexsex all the time.  there’s a lot higher stakes in politics than sex.  for my money, I don’t really care who people sleep with and will take a tax raise on the top 5% for all the rest of this bullshit. with the codicil that it doesn’t go to war, border control, or reducing the artificially created debt.  let the goddamned banks pay for their own mistakes.

    3. “a woman while they were in high school,”

    what caught my eye right off the bat is calling a possible victim of sexual assault in high school “a woman”. Not a girl. “a woman”. So, if this turns out to be a high school girl and more than likely another rich dude possibly getting preferential treatment at that time to protect him and his rich family, I say let the FBI do their job and uncover a possible cover-up. If it’s a nothing burger, then allow it to prove itself as such and deep six it.

    4. Nothing about his gambling problem?

    Unless she had an abortion, I don’t think his friend from high school will have any effect on Kavanaugh’s future.

    The Senate totally ignored Anita Hill’s testimony . . . and look at the consequences we have suffered ever since for that!
