Senator Dianne Feinstein has implied that she has damaging information on Brett Kavanaugh but refuses to divulge the contents of a letter, if it exists in the first place. The Daily Caller reports:
Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, announced Thursday she has forwarded unspecified information relating to Judge Brett Kavanaugh to federal investigators.
Feinstein’s cryptic statement appears to refer to a closely-held letter that supposedly relates information about an unnamed woman in Kavanaugh’s past whose existence The Intercept first revealed Wednesday.
“I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Feinstein said in a statement. “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 was not specific as to the particulars of the allegations, the identity of the individual, or the agency to which the matter was referred, though Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin separately told BuzzFeed News that Democrats had alerted the FBI.
