Senator Tom Cotton really ripped to Dianne Feinstein and the actions of the Democrats in the Kavanaugh affair, and he’s indicated that they ALL will be investigated by the FBI!!
Cotton is referring to questions about whether Feinstein withheld the letter from Ford in order to screw over Kavanaugh, and whether the lawyers for Ford withheld from her that Republicans were willing to meet her in California.
“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.”
He also said Democrats would be at fault if women become less likely to report sexual assaults now because they did not keep Ford’s request confidential, as she had asked.
“Any impact that this entire episode has had,“ Cotton told John Dickerson, “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.“
I think this is a smart tactic to take. I’ve seen a lot of people on the right reflexively attack Ford, but she seems pretty credible and there’s nothing that completely undermines her story. It’s just not corroborated enough, and that makes it not enough to take down a Supreme Court nominee.
