Cotton: Investigate Dems for Leaking Ford Letter

“She has been victimized by Democrats … on a search-and-destroy mission for Brett Kavanaugh.”

After Thursday’s emotional roller coaster of testimonies from both Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford, it appeared that the Republican-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee was finally on the brink of sending Kavanaugh to the full Senate floor for a final vote. In fact, early Friday morning, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), the lone Republican holdout on the committee, stated that he planned to give Kavanaugh the green light. And yet right before the committee voted, Flake threw a curve ball by siding with Democrats in conditioning his “yes” vote on completing yet another FBI investigation into Kavanaugh before the full Senate vote. The aptly named Flake later explained that his waffling came after being accosted by a raging feminist protester. He said he believed that the hearings were “tearing the country apart” and that an FBI investigation would somehow help matters.

Right. And as Ben Shapiro sarcastically notes, “Nothing brings the country together like FBI investigations.”

Ironically, Flake acknowledged Sunday on CBS’s “60 Minutes” that if he were running for reelection there’s “not a chance” that he would have called for the FBI investigation. So he willingly gave into Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) and the Democrats’ politically orchestrated smear-job on Kavanaugh because he’s tired of the partisan nature of politics? With Republicans like this who needs Democrats?

Meanwhile, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) announced that Feinstein’s office would be investigated for leaking Ford’s confidential letter to the press. Cotton explained, “[Democrats] have betrayed [Ford]. She has been victimized by Democrats … on a search-and-destroy mission for Brett Kavanaugh.” Seemingly confirming Republicans’ suspicion that Democrats were responsible for leaking Ford’s letter, Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) dodged a direct question on the matter from ABC’s George “Clintonista” Stephanopoulos, asserting, “All of these things do not focus on what we should be focusing on, which is the credibility of Judge Kavanaugh.” But the suddenly stalwart Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) would have none of the Democrats’ obfuscation, stating flatly, “I’m going to get to the bottom of it.”

Finally, President Donald Trump called out the Democrats for their grotesque politicization of the Kavanaugh hearings, declaring, “Wow! Just starting to hear the Democrats, who are only thinking Obstruct and Delay, are starting to put out the word that the ‘time’ and ‘scope’ of FBI looking into Judge Kavanaugh and witnesses is not enough. Hello! For them, it will never be enough!”
