Feinstein Favors Reopening Kavanaugh Investigations

During a Debate Today Senator Feinstein Agreed she Would like to see More Investigations Done

After a long combative battle between Democrats and Republicans over the confirmation of then-Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-San Francisco) said today that she would be in favor of reopening the sexual misconduct allegations.

During the debate today with state senate challenger Kevin De León (D-Los Angeles), Feinstein said “I’d be in favor of opening an investigation into the allegations.” As the ranking minority member sitting on the House Judiciary Committee, Feinstein came under heavy criticism from both parties after it was revealed Kavanaugh’s accuser Christine Blasey Ford had wished to keep her allegations confidential. However, her needs were denied after the information was leaked from what might have been Feinstein’s office.

Feinstein was pressed about the issue of Ford’s confidentiality in the debate, but she was quick to dispel this claiming “it was kept completely confidential.”

De León also noted that he would be open to furthering an investigation into the allegations although both officials agreed they would need to take back control of the Senate to do so.
