Supreme Court hearings are not supposed to come with October surprises and calculated leaks. These dirty tricks should come with a price. And Senator Cotton and Senator Graham are vowing that they will.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office will be investigated to determine whether it leaked a confidential letter from one of Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers, Sen. Tom Cotton said Sunday.
Cotton, an Arkansas Republican, also said lawyers recommended to Christine Blasey Ford by Democrats will face a Washington, D.C., bar investigation for telling her that Senate Judiciary Committee staffers would not travel to California to interview her about her sexual-assault allegation.
“They have betrayed her,” Cotton said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” “She has been victimized by Democrats … on a search-and-destroy mission for Brett Kavanaugh.”
Senator Graham is also promising an investigation.
Sen. Lindsey Graham promised Sunday he’ll “to get to the bottom of” the FBI investigation into the sexual assault allegations leveled against Judge Brett Kavanaugh and said that his own investigation into how the Democrats have handled the Supreme Court nominee’s confirmation hearings has only just begun.
“I’m going to get to the bottom of it,” Graham, R-S.C., told Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”
The longtime South Carolina senator said that, among other things, he wanted to find out how the letter from Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford was leaked to the press, who recommended that she hire her lawyer and what role the Democrats played in bringing these allegations against the judge to light.
And the same media that has been shrieking demands for a Kavanaugh investigation will turn around and bellow just as loudly that there must be no investigation. Because the media’s only standards are double standards.
