Yes, Kavanaugh has not been touched. The Spartacus-led slave revolt is going to end the same way as the original one. Ted Cruz and the 8th Legion showed up and showed who was in charge.

Personally, I found the lamentations of the women annoying but the winning part is very joyful. :lol:

Many on the Left realize they lost and blame people like Chuck U. Schummer for not trying hard enough.


They would be more justified in venting their anger at Harry Reid, rather than Schumer.

Yes they would. Removing the filibuster threat from judicial appointments is beginning to look like a BIG mistake :lol: Quite epic.

Losing the Senate after Obamacare was a BIG mistake too.

Ah..what joy there is in life. :lol:

Seems more like a threat than bribery. Not going to work, however. If she caves under this threat she will just have a primary challenger from her own party.

Last second anonymous accusation against Kavanaugh from 35+ (before he was an adult) years ago? :roll:

No details. No witness. What bullshit. It doesn't work that way. You have an allegation you need to make it publicly so that the accused has a chance to defend himself.

Quote:
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., on Thursday threw a cryptic curveball at Brett Kavanaugh, insinuating the Supreme Court nominee could be guilty of a crime even as Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee seek to delay his confirmation.

The vague accusation comes after the Senate Judiciary Committee already grilled Kavanaugh and other witnesses and prepares to vote on sending his nomination to the full Senate. The White House blasted the ambiguous charge as a last minute gambit.

“I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Feinstein said in her surprise statement. “That individual strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further, and I have honored that decision. I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities.”

A spokesperson for Feinstein declined Fox News’ request to elaborate on the lawmaker’s statement, but there has been much speculation that she is referring to a secret letter that has been the subject of intrigue on Capitol Hill over the last few days.

–– ADVERTISEMENT ––


The letter was reportedly given to Feinstein by Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., but has not been publicly disclosed by senators who have seen the document. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said that the letter in question has been referred to the FBI for investigation.

According to a report by The Intercept, the letter was relayed to lawmakers by an individual affiliated with Stanford University and concerns an incident involving the 53-year-old Kavanaugh and a woman while they were in high school.

The woman referenced in the letter has yet to be identified, but is being represented by Debra Katz, a whistleblower attorney who works with #MeToo survivors, according to The Intercept.

Despite the turmoil over the letter, a spokesperson for Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said there is no plan to delay Kavanaugh’s confirmation. Grassley set the panel's vote on Kavanaugh for Sept. 20 and Republicans hope to confirm Kavanaugh by the start of the new court session Oct. 1.

Washington Examiner contributor Ryan Girdusky weighs in on 'Fox & Friends First.'
“Sen. Grassley is aware of Senator Feinstein’s referral,” Grassley’s communications director Taylor Foy said in a statement. “At this time, he has not seen the letter in question, and is respecting the request for confidentiality. There’s no plan to change the committee’s consideration of Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination.”

The White House attacked Feinstein's statment as an 11th hour attack on the nominee.

“Throughout his confirmation process, Judge Kavanaugh has had 65 meetings with senators—including with Senator Feinstein—sat through over 30 hours of testimony, addressed over 2,000 questions in a public setting and additional questions in a confidential session," White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec said in a statement. "Not until the eve of his confirmation has Sen. Feinstein or anyone raised the specter of new ‘information’ about him."

I saw this at Drudge:

WASH POST: FBI NOT PLANNING TO LAUNCH INVESTIGATION...


Can't read the article because it is behind the WaPo's paywall.


So, Sen. Feinstein's last second reveal is a big fat nothingburger...

Saw this posted at Ace of Spades:

Quote:
FBI: Why No, We're Not Going to Be Investigating an Anonymous, Third-Hand, Completely Evidence-Free Allegation of a Local Alleged Crime Allegedly Committed 40 Years Ago, Well Outside Any Statute of Limitations

—Ace of Spades

But that was never the point, was it?

The point was to pour this bloody chum in the water so that the sharks would be attracted and go into frenzy.

“Throughout his confirmation process, Judge Kavanaugh has had 65 meetings with senators — including with Senator Feinstein — sat through over 30 hours of testimony, addressed over 2,000 questions in a public setting and additional questions in a confidential session,” White House spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said. “Not until the eve of his confirmation has Sen. Feinstein or anyone raised the specter of new ‘information’ about him.”

Kupec noted that the FBI has “thoroughly and repeatedly vetted” Kavanaugh through his 25-year public-service career, which includes work in the Office of Independent Counsel under Kenneth Starr, the George W. Bush White House, and his current position on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.


Quote:
Several officials confirmed that the letter was referred to the FBI. But the bureau does not plan to launch a criminal investigation, according to a person familiar with the matter — a probe that would normally be handled by local authorities if it were within the statute of limitations.
