Dianne Feinstein denies leaking Ford’s name, releases statement

The FBI is currently investigating the sexual assault allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. The Democrats asked for the investigation, they got their much-requested investigation and it’s only a matter of time until the Democrats ask for something else in order to delay the proceedings.

In the meantime, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, has been accused of leaking the previously anonymous letter from Dr. Ford in which she originally said Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her 36 years ago. However, Feinstein denies any and all accusations of her or her staff doing such a thing. In fact, the California Democrat put out a statement about situation.

“President Trump and Senate Republicans are trying to deflect attention from Brett Kavanaugh’s sexual assault allegations by saying my staff or I leaked the letter from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford—they’re wrong.

“The timeline is clear: I referred the un-redacted letter to the FBI on September 12. That night the FBI added a redacted version to Judge Kavanaugh’s background file, to which all 100 senators have access. The New Yorker published details on September 14, and Dr. Blasey Ford went public in the Washington Post on September 16. It wasn’t until September 17 that someone with access to the redacted version of the letter read it to CNN, where it was published online.

“I honored Dr. Blasey Ford’s request for confidentiality. It was only when reporters were knocking on her door that I referred the letter to the FBI. At no point did I or anyone on my staff divulge Dr. Blasey Ford’s name to press. She knows that and believes it, for which I’m grateful.

“I find it interesting that the same critics who last week condemned me for not releasing Dr. Blasey Ford’s letter against her wishes are now suggesting I did leak the letter.

“Throughout this process I acted in strict accordance to the wishes of the survivor.”

What’s funny about her statement is that Ford mentioned under oath that Feinstein received her letter in July. As you can see from Feinstein statement, she doesn’t explain why she sat on the letter for about six weeks.

Also, according to the Democrats, isn’t an allegation enough to assume guilt? So by the Democrats version of “innocent until proven guilty” Feinstein is guilty and Republicans should demand an FBI investigation immediately.
