On Thursday California Senator Dianne Feinstein ignited the left with a mysterious letter concerning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. She didn’t divulge the contents of the letter, which she turned over to the FBI, but liberals everywhere speculated that it involved Kavanaugh committing sexual assault. Normal people figured the letter was a nothing-burger, but it turns out it was a whole nothing-buffet. It appears that when he was 17, Kavanaugh may have closed a door at a party. I honestly can’t describe it any better than that.
The Guardian reports:
A senior Democratic senator has alerted federal investigators to a confidential letter she received regarding Brett Kavanaugh, Donald Trump’s conservative nominee for the US supreme court, in an extraordinary move that suggested she had been informed of possible wrongdoing.
Dianne Feinstein, who is the top Democrat on the Senate judiciary committee, said she had received information about Kavanaugh’s nomination from an individual who had strongly requested confidentiality. The letter was likely passed on to the FBI because the bureau is responsible for background checks into judicial nominees.
Now wait for it…
A source who said they were briefed on the contents of the letter said it described an incident involving Kavanaugh and a woman that took place when both were 17 years old and at a party. According to the source, Kavanaugh and a male friend had locked her in a room against her will, making her feel threatened, but she was able to get out of the room.
If she was able to get out of the room, she wasn’t locked in. As I said, Kavanaugh may have closed a door at a party when he was a teenager. I did way worse shit at parties when I was 17. Hell, I do way worse shit at parties now.
There are no allegations of sexual assault. No unwanted touching. No crude remarks. If this story is true, it sounds like Kavanaugh and his friend were goofing around and made this girl think she was locked in a room. Perhaps this girl did indeed feel threatened, but she wasn’t actually threatened.
It kind of begs the question as to why Feinstein turned this letter over to the FBI. Even if the statue of limitations hadn’t run out decades ago, there is nothing remotely criminal about this. I get it that the FBI vets Supreme Court nominees, but this isn’t something that they would be concerned with at all.
The way it has been explained is that this “accuser” doesn’t want to come forward about this thing, but she told someone about the “incident” who wrote a letter to a democratic member of the House who passed it on to Dianne Feinstein who gave it to the FBI. At no point in this crazy chain did anyone say, “this is stupid and meaningless.”
Another thing that puzzles me is, why did this woman suddenly come forward with this nothing story after all these years? Brett Kavanaugh was 17 in 1982, which means this door closing incident happened 36 years ago. It’s completely insane that this woman has hung on to the trauma of having someone close a door on her for three and half decades.
Obviously this was another lame attempt to sabotage Kavanaugh’s SCOTUS confirmation. If Feinstein came out said what was in the letter there wouldn’t even be anything to talk about. Instead, democrats are clamoring that Kavanaugh’s vote should be put off until the FBI can investigate these serious allegations. And you thought Cory Booker’s “Spartacus” moment was weak sauce.
