The Senate plans a full investigation into how the Democrats handled the Ford letter and other actions taken during the Kavanaugh/Ford hearings. That could be especially bad for Dianne Feinstein who played games with the information she had in her possession and Maxine Waters, whose office is implicated in the doxxing of GOP Senators.
Sen Tom Cotton wants to concentrate on Dianne Feinstein. He says her handling of the Ford letter is very suspect and he believes she’s the one who leaked it. He also plans on having the bar examine Ford’s lawyers in the matter. The Senate offered to fly out to California to take her testimony. They didn’t inform Ford as required by law.
“They have betrayed her. She has been victimized by Democrats…on a search-and-destroy mission for Brett Kavanaugh,” Cotton said, according to Politico.
“Any impact that this entire episode has had on women’s willingness to come forward and report sexual assault, which I encourage them all to do immediately after it happens, is caused by the Democrats, is caused by Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer not respecting her requests for confidentiality,” he explained.
Speaking on ABC News’ “This Week,” Sen. Lindsey Graham vowed a “wholesale, full scale investigation” to determine who leaked Ford’s letter.
“We’re going to do a wholesale, full scale investigation of what I think was a despicable process to deter it from happening again,” Graham said, according to the Washington Examiner.
Lindsay Graham said:
“The FBI will do a supplemental background investigation, then I’m going to call for an investigation of what happened in this committee. Who betrayed Dr. Ford’s trust? Who in Feinstein’s office recommended Katz as a lawyer? Why did Ms. Ford not know that the committee was willing to go to California?”
“All I can tell you is it came from somebody with a political motive. No friend would do this to Dr. Ford.”
