Democrats Trying To Postpone Kavanaugh Nomination To SCOTUS... Because He Had Sex In High School Reader 09/14/2018 (Fri) 00:51:12 Id: df189b [Preview] No. 12702
California Democratic Rep. Dianne Feinstein has released a frustratingly vague statement about a letter in her possession which allegedly accuses Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of "an incident involving Kavanaugh and a woman while they were in high school," reports The Intercept.

"Senate Judiciary Committee have privately requested to view a Brett Kavanaugh-related document in possession of the panel’s top Democrat, Dianne Feinstein, but the senior California senator has so far refused, according to multiple sources familiar with the situation." -The Intercept

The letter reads:

“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”

This is so vague that everyone who reads it will assume the worst.

Was that the point of releasing it? pic.twitter.com/vrdHpgk6oC

So Feinstein won't show her colleagues on the Senate Judiciary Committee, however she did forward the allegations to the FBI, one week before the Judiciary Committee is set to vote on Kavanaugh's nomination.

According to the New York Times, the incident involved possible sexual misconduct.

The Intercept reports that the letter took a "circuitous route to Feinstein," related to someone affiliated with Stanford University, who authored the letter "and sent it to Rep. Anna Eschoo," a local Democrat.

Update: According to the Washington Post, The FBI won't investigate the allegations lodged against Kavanaugh, so he'll simply be tainted with the spectre of a nebulous accusation for the rest of his career.

Perhaps we can read about it someday the alleged victim's book.
