Kirsters Baish| It’s truly disgusting how the Senate Democrats of the Judiciary Committee have been attempting to delay Brett Kavanaugh’s (President Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court) confirmation. The Gateway Pundit has reported that a high ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Democratic California Representative Dianne Feinstein, has now referenced a mysterious letter about Brett Kavanaugh.
Feinstein said in a statement today to the FBI that she “received information from an individual concerning the nomination.”
The New York Times has reported: Two officials familiar with the matter say the incident detailed in the Feinstein letter involved possible sexual misconduct between Judge Kavanaugh and a woman when they were both in high school.
A statement was released by the California Democrat via The Intercept:
“I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. 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.”
The White House responded to Feinstein’s statement Thursday saying, “Senator Schumer promised to ‘oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have,’ and it appears he is delivering with this 11th hour attempt to delay the confirmation.”

Fox News writes:
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.
Feinstein stated, “I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. 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 the Democrat refused to comment upon Fox News’ request to expand on the comment.
