    Tom Cotton Says Dianne Feinstein Will be Investigated Over Leaked Ford Letter

    “Cotton added that the Democrats will be to blame if women stop coming forward to report sexual assaults”

    Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton appeared on Face the Nation this weekend and claimed, among other things, that Dianne Feinstein and her staff will be investigated for leaking Christine Blasey Ford’s letter to the media.

    Andrew O’Reilly of FOX News provides details:

    Cotton says Feinstein will be investigated over leaked letter by Kavanaugh accuser

    Sen. Tom Cotton said Sunday that Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office will be investigated to determine whether or not they leaked the confidential letter from Christine Blasey Ford that detailed allegations of sexual misconduct by Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

    Feinstein, who represents California and who is the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, had received the letter from Ford sometime over the summer and was asked to keep it confidential. At some point, however, the letter was leaked to the press, although Feinstein denies that anyone in her office is responsible.

    “They have betrayed her,” Cotton, R-Ark, said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” about Ford. ” “She has been victimized by Democrats … on a search-and-destroy mission for Brett Kavanaugh.”

    Cotton added that the Democrats will be to blame if women stop coming forward to report sexual assaults because Ford’s confidentiality was compromised.

    Watch the whole segment below. Cotton brought his ‘A’ game to this interview. Host John Dickerson acts like a representative of the Democratic party and repeatedly tries to back Cotton into a corner but never gets the better of him. Every member of the GOP should study this video. Cotton handled this perfectly:

    Feinstein got caught flat-footed last week when she was asked about the leaking of the letter. She is still denying that she was the source of the leak.

    Jordain Carney reports at The Hill:

    Feinstein hits back at GOP: I didn’t leak Ford letter

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) is hitting back at GOP senators, insisting she and her staff did not leak a letter detailing the first assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

    “President Trump and Senate Republicans are trying to deflect attention from Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual assault allegations by saying my staff or I leaked the letter from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford — they’re wrong,” Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, said Monday.

    Her statement comes after GOP Sen. Tim Cotton (Ark.) grabbed headlines when he told CBS’s “Face the Nation” that “Feinstein and her staff is going to face an investigation for why they leaked that.”

    Cotton did not say who would investigate Feinstein or on what he based his accusation.

    Feinstein has repeatedly denied that she or her staff leaked the letter from Ford. Republicans have also knocked Feinstein for not immediately sharing the letter with other senators once she got it, something Feinstein says she did to protect Ford’s privacy.

    According to Democrat logic, isn’t it up to Dianne Feinstein to prove that she didn’t leak the letter?

    Nothing is going to happen to Feinstein, even if it can be proven, beyond a reasonable doubt, that she directed the leaking of Ford’s letter. We are 35 days from the midterm elections. So, the Republicans are doing their impersonation of being opposed to the Democrats on Kavanaugh. If this were last year, the Republican would have caved to the Dems weeks ago. Remember, these are the same people who refuse to fund a border wall, reduce gratuitous spending and do everything else that their Republican, and independent, constituencies have clearly stated that they want. It is all one big club, the Uniparty. And, it has one goal, stay in power for as long as possible and make tons of money while they are there.

    All of these investigations, hearings, circuses, and show trials are all about 1 thing….swaying public opinion via the media, and using the newly shaped public opinion as a sword. One of the better things Trump has done is constantly call out the media and belittle them to the point that only a handful of a percentage actually think the media is in the truth business. As the trust in media has went down, the attacks and smears have went up. It’s the equivalent of telling your kids to do something with a louder voice volume after they ignored you the first time.

    Investigating Difi isn’t for the purpose of nailing her legally…..it’s to neutralize her ability to do what she wants to sway public opinion.

    Tom Cotton is the kind of guy we need to have as Senate Majority Leader; not the Whimp that we now have, i.e., Mitch McConnell.

    Make sure that your Republican Senate Candidate supports a #DitchMitch Movement AND, supports getting the National Reciprocity Act passed in the House that has been on Chicom Mitch’s desk for most of the year collecting dust; if we have a concealed weapons permit, we ought not have to get another like the Peoples Republic of Connecticut just because they lie to collect unwarranted fees to fund their liberal governance; we ought to be able to protect ourselves everywhere we go in the United States without the tyranny of one State that doesn’t recognize the Permits issued by other States.

    “Nothing will be done”

    So what is our end game? We’re going to do nothing and just end up enabling it? Or work within system to get these corrupt wretches removed? Or drag them out into the streets and hang them?

    Trump expires in 6 years at best. Then what? President Lindsey Cuck?

    I predict we will mumble “we’re better than that” while we watch them destroy the Republic.

      That IS the problem. What are the common folks to do?

      The common man gave the Republicans back the House and Senate on the promise that they would stymie the liberal Democrat agenda and repeal Obamacare. Neither happened. Then to make the point crystal clear, the common people elected Donald trump as President, on the clear message that they wanted Obamacare repealed, a border wall built and immigration law enforced. Again nothing happened that Trump did not do unilaterally. Now we have this incredible boondoggle of a budget which the House just passed.

      So, what can be done? Electing Republicans does not work. Electing Democrats is insane. Even electing the ultimate political outsider has not stimulated the Republican to attempt to fulfill any of their constituent’s demands. The last time the government totally ignored the people we were treated to the American Revolution. How close to another one do you think we are?

    At this point, I see Tom Cotton peddling a reassuring myth, one that I should not in any way believe.
