(National Sentinel) Shame: Sen. John Kennedy slammed Democrats and the lawyers for Christine Blasey Ford, the first woman who accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual abuse 35-plus years ago, for leaking details of a letter she wrote and sent to Sen. Dianne Feinstein in confidence over the summer.
Kennedy, R-La., said whoever leaked the letter to the press should hide their faces in shame for the rest of their lives in comments aimed at Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Left-wing hack attorneys they hired to ‘represent’ Ford.
“To the person who leaked Dr. Ford’s letter, to the person who breached Dr. Ford’s anonymity, and to the person who did not tell her she could have avoided this by testifying privately in her home in California, you know who you are. You should bow your head in shame in my opinion, and you should hide your head in a bag every day for the rest of your natural life,” he said right before he supported Kavanaugh’s nomination, which moved out of committee on a party line 11-10 vote.
And while he didn’t mention anyone specifically, the intended targets were clear since only Democrats on the panel and lawyers for Ford had any knowledge her letter even existed.
As the Washington Examiner reported:
Ford testified on Thursday that she was not aware that it was possible for Senate investigators to visit her in California to question her about the allegations.
Ford also testified that her initial two lawyers, Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, were recommended by the office of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. Katz and Banks dealt with Ford’s early negotiations with committee staff on testifying. Attorney Michael Bromwich, who also represents former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, joined her team this weekend.
What’s also a mystery is just who is paying for this high-priced legal team — unless, of course, they’re working pro bono because it’s their way of contributing to the demise of one of POTUS Trump’s Supreme Court picks.
Ford alleged in a July letter to Feinstein that Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed, attempted to remove her clothes, and covered her mouth when she was 15 and he was 17. She testified Thursday that she did not intend to make her accusation public, but chose to do so after her letter was leaked to the media, and reporters made clear to her that they knew her identity.
During Thursday’s circus hearing, where Ford and Kavanaugh each testified, Feinstein denied leaking the letter and said her staff didn’t to it, either. But two things are crystal clear: 1) Feinstein was the keeper of the letter as it was sent to her; and 2) She had the letter for nearly a month but did not mention the allegations contained in it at all, even during her private meeting with Kavanaugh.
We agree with Sen. Kennedy’s ‘recommendation’ but understand that it will never happen because the people he directed his comments to have no morals, no scruples, and no values.
