California Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein insinuated Thursday that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh could be guilty of a crime, even as Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee seek to delay his confirmation.
“I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Feinstein said in a surprise statement. “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.”
Her cryptic accusation comes after the Committee grilled Kavanaugh and other witnesses and prepares to vote on sending his nomination to the Senate.
