The Democrats are pulling out all the stops to delay the confirmation of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. A letter sent to Dianne Feinstein purportedly details a “groping” incident that occurred when Kavanaugh was a teenager in high school.
Feinstein, who is a high ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, declined to release the letter to the news media. But several Democrats who read the letter advised Feinstein to forward it to the FBI.
The unidentified woman was not a classmate or even a fellow student of Kavanaugh’s.
According to the NY Daily News, Kavanaugh graduated from Georgetown Preparatory, an all-boys Jesuit high school in North Bethesda, Md.
“We have no knowledge regarding any accusation,” school spokesman Patrick Coyle told The News vail email.
White House spokeswoman Kerri Kupec called out the Democrats for bringing up the letter a week before Kavanaugh is set to be confirmed.
“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,” 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.”
