Earlier today, it was revealed that Senator Dianne Feinstein had given a document to federal authorities regarding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. She refused to let the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee see the letter causing some tension on the committee. The committee members want to make sure the letter is worthy of an investigation. from what we’re hearing, this is a high school incident.

The Intercept reports:

The document is a letter from a California constituent and purportedly describes an incident that was relayed to someone affiliated with Stanford University, who authored the letter and sent it to Rep. Anna Eshoo, a Democrat who represents the area. Different sources provided different accounts of the contents of the letter, and some of the sources said they themselves had heard different versions, but the one consistent theme was that it describes an incident involving Kavanaugh and a woman while they were in high school.  Kept hidden, the letter is beginning to take on a life of its own.

The woman is being represented by a “#MeToo” lawyer…so this must be something that happened in high school. Really? Does anyone out there think this man shouldn’t be confirmed because of a high school incident?

Now, according to Washinton Post reporter Matt Zapotosky, the FBI has confirmed that they will not be investigating US Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh over the allegations sent to them by Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein.

The Washington Post’s Matt Zapotosky quoted an FBI official as saying: “Upon receipt of the information on the night of September 12, we included it as part of Judge Kavanaugh’s background file, as per the standard process.” He also reported that the agency was not opening a criminal investigation into what Kavanaugh may or may not have done as a high school student.

Zapotosky explained what that means in another tweet: FBI official on the Dianne Feinstein referral about Kavanaugh: “Upon receipt of the information on the night of September 12, we included it as part of Judge Kavanaugh’s background file, as per the standard process.”

Zapotosky tweeted that the FBI won’t be doing a criminal investigation on Kavanaugh based on what Feinstein told them: Importantly, the FBI isn’t doing a criminal investigation based on what Feinstein told them. The broad outline of the allegation, as I understand it, seems like it’d be in state/local authorities wheelhouse, if there even is a crime, and if the statute of limitations hasn’t run.

Zapotosky clarified, just because the FBI is not investigating Kavanaugh, doesn’t mean the alleged incident isn’t a serious matter, and that it still deserved attention, but the FBI would not be investigating it. Zapotosky said that the FBI has given the information to the White House who makes the determination about who they nominate.

That’s not to say whatever happened or whatever was alleged isn’t serious and deserving of attention and scrutiny. It’s just to say the FBI has given the White House the info it might need for action. Because the White House, not the FBI, determines who it nominates.

Feinstein has been under some pressure from her party as she’s up for reelection and is another Senate lifer who is trying to hang on to her seat. She was recently outed for having a Chinese spy working for her for 20 years! It would make sense that she might REALLY want this letter to be something big…
