Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blasted Democrats over their handling of the allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh from when he was in high school.
McConnell had been silent on the allegations until Monday. He asserted on the senate floor that the accusation was brought forward in an “irregular manner” having been made public in the 11th hour, despite having the Democrats knowing about this for the past six weeks.
You think that after all of their ‘hunting’ the Dems would have come out with these allegations sooner but no. They strategically chose to wait until the 11th hour to reveal their ‘big hand’ against Kavanaugh, knowing that he would not be able to respond this late in the game.
Little do they know how obvious and discrediting their blatant attack really is to the American public. We see them.
“They did not raise it in the closed session, the proper forum where such an allegation could have been addressed with discretion and sensitivity,” McConnell said.
As Reported By Fox News:
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley on Wednesday unloaded a torrent of criticism on Sen. Dianne Feinstein for her handling of the sexual assault accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, telling the ranking Democrat on the committee, “I cannot overstate how disappointed I am.”
Saying Feinstein “chose to sit on the allegations until a politically opportune moment,” Grassley demanded she immediately turn over an unredacted copy of the letter from Kavanaugh’s accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, that Feinstein received July 30.
Feinstein, D-Calif., shared the letter with federal authorities and other senators only last week, days before a key Judiciary Committee vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation, after a leak about the letter was published in The Intercept. Republicans have accused Democrats of orchestrating that leak.
