A personalized email from Senator Dianne Feinstein that addressed few of my concerns…
----- Original Message -----
Thank you for contacting me about Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States. I appreciate you writing to me on this important issue.
I have many concerns about Judge Kavanaugh’s record and his views. I also have strongly objected to Republicans’ withholding of millions of documents related to Judge Kavanaugh’s years in President George W. Bush’s White House. The limited White House record we have received indicates that Judge Kavanaugh has given misleading and evasive answers to the Senate Judiciary Committee. After thoroughly reviewing his judicial opinions and participating in four days of testimony at his nomination hearing, my concerns about Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination have only deepened.
A Supreme Court Justice’s decisions will affect the lives of all Americans for generations. Judge Kavanaugh holds highly ideological views on a variety of issues, including the Second Amendment, women’s reproductive rights, and the executive power of the presidency. For these reasons, as well as Judge Kavanaugh’s misleading testimony and the lack of transparency, I strongly oppose his nomination. If you would like to read in greater detail the reasons behind my decision, you may find them in my Op-Ed to the Los Angeles Times here: https://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-feinstein-kavanaugh-hearings-20180916-story.html
Grave allegations about Judge Kavanaugh’s character and integrity have also come to light, and serious questions remain about him in this regard, as indicated in information I referred to the FBI. Due to the gravity of the alleged misconduct, I have called on the White House to direct the FBI to investigate the allegations. I have also called for the Judiciary Committee to not move forward with Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination until it has received a report from the FBI. Many questions must be answered before the Senate moves forward on this nominee.
I applaud Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s courage, especially as we have seen that her decision to come forward publicly has subjected her to attacks. Sharing an experience involving sexual assault is extraordinarily difficult for any woman, and it is all the more difficult for Dr. Blasey Ford because of public scrutiny. I hope the attacks and shaming of her will stop and that her allegation will be treated with the seriousness it deserves.
Once again, thank you for writing. Should you have any other questions or comments, please call my Washington, D.C., office at (202) 224-3841 or visit my website at feinstein.senate.gov. You can also follow me online at YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, and you can sign up for my email newsletter at feinstein.senate.gov/newsletter.
It appears that the progressive socialist democrats want to delay the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings until after the 2018 mid-term election when they hold that the narrow majority held by the Republicans in both the House and Senate flips to Democrat-controlled bodies and they may proceed with destroying the Trump Presidency by refusing to confirm his nominees, refusing to allow his legislative initiatives to come to the floor and to possibly impeach, try, and remove President Trump from office.
Rank political hypocrisy?
Consider Debra Katz, the progressive socialist democrat activist attorney representing Dr. Ford on a sexual allegation by Paula Jones against Bill Clinton…
In trying to legally diminish the Jones case, Katz made several public statements in 1998 regarding the interpretation of valid sexual harassment incidents. Katz's comments were all in the context of "even if Jones's allegations are true."
- In March of 1998: "Paula Jones' suit is very, very, very weak. She's alleged one incident that took place in a hotel room that, by her own testimony, lasted 10 to 12 minutes."
- In April 1998: "[This was] clearly a one-time incident that took place in 10 to 12 minutes, she was not forced to have sex, she left on her own volition" and thus not enough to create a valid sexual harassment claim.
- Later in 1998: "If a woman came to me with a similar fact pattern, I would probably tell her that I'm sorry, it's unfair, but you don't have a case." <Source>
And in a case defending Senator Al Franken from the allegations of eight women…
‘This is not a Harvey Weinstein situation,’ said Debra Katz, a civil rights lawyer who handles sexual harassment cases. ‘Harvey Weinstein was a serial predator who used his power to put women in very vulnerable situations. He abused that power by sexually assaulting women. That’s not what this is.’
Ms. Katz also drew a distinction between Mr. Franken’s role as a comedian and that of a senator. ‘Context is relevant,’ she said. ‘He did not do this as a member of the U.S. Senate. He did this in his capacity of someone who was still functioning as an entertainer.’ <Source>
The progressive socialist democrats are a true fifth column trying to destroy America from within on behalf of its enemies, both domestic and foreign. If there is an FBI investigation, perhaps it should be an investigation of Dianne Feinstein and any possible collusion with Communist China. And, why Feinstein hid the fact that a Chinese spy worked for Feinstein for 20+ years was allowed to retire rather than face prosecution.
We are so screwed.
