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

    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?

    Are we still pretending to go along with the preposterous story that this was a “leak” and not a carefully controlled release of a political hit job? Seriously? She put her name on her “anonymous” letter. She took a polygraph. She hired lawyers. She obtained therapy records. She talked to Feinstein. She contacted and obtained letters of corroboration of her hearsay. What did I forget? Sure, because she really wanted to stay in the hole she crawled out of.

    When it all comes out in the wash, nothing will be done with or to Feinstein. Lots of harumphing, lots of outrage, and a ton of finger-pointing. The end result will be her re-election to the Senate, and life goes on.

      Not if we lend our support to her opponent. As distasteful as this is, he would be a junior member, would not know the ropes and would not be on any committee.

        I’ve been thinking that very thing. He’s a communist at least in his thinking, but as a freshman he is in no position to do any damage.

        And.. there is always the chance that ICE will catch up with him.

        As a CA state senator he half-joked that if ICE got aggressive they might end up deporting members of his family…

        All three rings of this circus provide a peek at the kind of people who are writing the laws that we all have to obey. It is not conducive to a good night’s sleep.

    I would have added one thing to this masterpiece to say to any biased interviewer who acts like this one did when he bristled at Cotton’s comments and said he wasn’t being fair …

    Mr. or Mrs. Interviewer — “It is one thing to be the Devil’s Advocate, a legitimate function of the press. And it is quite another to be an instrument of the Democrat Party. I have given you the unvarnished truth and you have ignored it in this interview showing your own bias and blatant partisanship for all of your viewers to see.”

    Cotton was superb!

    C’Mon man. Does anyone really think that the person(s) responsible for the leak of the letter will be identified? These people lie and obfuscate like a duck quacks. “It depends on what your definition of is is.”

    NOTHING will be found; no one will be held accountable. So let’s just forget this one and move along to the next one.

    Cynical? H_ll yeah.
