Sen. Dianne Feinstein is at the center of the sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh. Since exposing “the letter” and releasing a Pandora’s box of chaos, she has since tried to back away. Now, she’s blaming the media for the commotion. There’s one big fact, however, she tried to ignore.
The sexual allegations against Brett Kavanaugh will go down as one of the most disgraceful chapters in American history — for the Democrats. The petty and pathetic liberal party has been nothing but disruptive since Donald Trump nominated the man for the Supreme Court.
Democrats have protested, complained, and lied about Kavanaugh. They’ve made wild claims about what could happen should the respected and accomplished judge be put on the Supreme Court. They have proven they don’t care about his record or ability; they are only trying to oppose the president.
The sudden release of sexual misconduct allegations — from over 35 years ago — is just another attempt at preventing his confirmation. These allegations, from Christine Blasey Ford, cannot be proven and are being used to slander a man with a sterling reputation.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein is the one that unleashed this storm, with her talk of this letter. The letter led to the story being published in the news, then Ford coming forward. Feinstein now seems regretful for starting the entire affair. But she refuses to take any of the blame for the fallout — which includes Ford facing pressure from the media, Senate, and others.
In fact, she blames the liberal media for exposing Ford to trouble. But there’s a big problem with that claim.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democratic member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has come under heavy fire from both sides over her handling of the allegation against Brett Kavanaugh, which she submitted to the FBI less than a week before the confirmation vote and two months after having received the allegation. But she says the real blame for outing the accuser, who initially said she wanted to remain anonymous, falls at the feet of the media.
“President Trump, Dr. Blasey Ford did not want her story of sexual assault to be public,” Feinstein said in a tweet Wednesday. “She requested confidentiality and I honored that. It wasn’t until the media outed her that she decided to come forward. You may not respect women and the wishes of victims, but I do.” [Source: The Daily Wire]

Wow, what a liar. Feinstein wanted to use Ford’s questionable story to destroy Brett Kavanaugh’s career, reputation, and family, but she intended to keep Ford’s identity a secret? How is that possible? Did she really expect people to believe such wild accusations, without us even knowing who made them?
Democrats must really think we’re stupid!
But her attempts to throw the liberal media under the bus are really rich. This coward refuses to accept any responsibility for the massive crisis she created. But the fact remains, it wasn’t the media’s fault, it was hers.
The response to Feinstein’s statement online has been overwhelmingly negative. Among those who pushed back on Feinstein’s attempt to blame the press was Republican Sen. Tom Cotton (h/t Allahpundit).
“[Sen. Feinstein] says ‘the media outed’ Judge Kavanaugh’s accuser,” Cotton wrote Wednesday. “But only Democrats & their aides had access to the letter. So what she really means is Democrats leaked the letter. Either [Sen. Feinstein] approved the leak or she can’t control her own committee. Neither good.” [Source: The Daily Wire]

This is pretty important to understand. A Democrat blaming the liberal media for wrongdoing is like a CEO blaming his PR firm for wrongdoing. The liberal media works for the Democratic Party. They are essentially propaganda puppets for the left. There is no way they could have exposed Ford’s identity without Democrats in Washington giving them that information.
Most likely, it was Feinstein’s office that leaked her name. Probably Feinstein herself.
The Democrats hoped this wild stunt would delay Kavanaugh’s vote until after the mid-terms. At best, it would have compelled Republicans to reject him immediately. Instead, Senate Republicans — in rare instance of boldness — called the left’s bluff.
That shattered Feinstein’s little scheme. She knew Ford couldn’t back her claim. Testifying before the Senate would have been a disaster. Now, Feinstein is using whatever excuse she can to back away from the entire mess. The mess she created.
The takeaway? Democrats are petty, dishonest, spoiled children who would rather disrupt our country than do the right thing. They don’t deserve a place in our government. Period.
