Kirsters Baish| Twitchy previously reported that Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein made an announcement this week that she would give authorities a letter that she claimed contained incriminating information regarding President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, and a woman that may have a connection to him dating back to his high school years.
People like ThinkProgress’s Ian Millhiser tossed around the idea that Judge Kavanaugh “may have committed a very serious crime — possibly even a sex crime.” Now people are coming forward to make #MeToo accusations.
With all the allegations going around, the Guardian published a piece citing an anonymous source who claims to know what the letter contained… and it’s a whole lot of nothing.

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. The Guardian has not verified the apparent claims in the letter. It is not yet clear who wrote it.
Yeah… Feinstein forwarded that worthless letter to the FBI, expecting them to investigate.
Twitter erupted with users laughing at the fact that Dianne Feinstein actually thought this ploy was going to work.

Another user pointed out that the New York Times had falsely accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct… just think what the press would have done if a Conservative-leaning outlet did the same to an Obama nominee.
So the N.Y. Times and the Washington post all lied when they falsely accused him of sexual misconduct.

Other users got their jabs in on Feinstein and her ridiculous letter too:
Ian Millhiser hardest hit.

I locked my sister in the utility shed for about an hour when I was about that age. Big deal.

Was the bottle, in fact, spun, Judge Kavanaugh?

This is possibly the dumbest possible referral. Why wasn’t this referred to local authorities when she got it 5 months ago?!

How many articles and Op-eds will come out saying being locked alone in a room (and getting out unharmed) as a party prank is just like rape, sexual assault, the first step slaughtering women or, even better, early indication of Kavanaugh's desire to control women? https://t.co/KN2t6m8Wbn
