“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.

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.

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?
