MSNBC panel slaps down Feinstein's 'cheap last minute trick' against Kavanaugh

An MSNBC panel didn't think there was much to allegations made from Senator Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) that she had obtained a letter alleging sexual harassment by Brett Kavanaugh as Congress weighs his Supreme Court nomination.

'Cheap last minute trick'

Joe Scarborough excoriated the allegations from Democrats that he said were based on flimsy evidence but were meant to smear the character of President Donald Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court.

"Mike, they get a letter," Scarborough said to Mike Barnicle, "and say we're not gonna tell you what's in the letter. But Democratic staffers leaked to the press a slur. We don't know if it's true or not."

"But then they leak it at the last second," he explained. "This is a guy, who has been, whose life has been examined by the FBI, and who has been screened a lot of times in his life."

"This looks like a cheap, last minute trick by Democrats," Scarborough added, "whether you're for Kavanaugh or not, but this is why a lot of people just don't get involved in public service."

"Well that's it, first of all, let me ask you, are you surprised at this?" Barnicle asked.

"No, I'm not surprised by it at all," Scarborough responded, "but for the Democrats who are doing this, they're only hurting their cause, and you just feel like OK, if you're going to make an accusation that is devastating to someone's character, if you're gonna smear somebody's character, then you know what, don't say I have a letter, I'm not gonna tell you what's in it, but I'm gonna send it to the FBI."

"That's bad form," he concluded.

Barnicle agreed and panelist Willie Geist added that the FBI was not pursuing the matter, casting even more doubt on the claims from Democrats.

Here's the video of the Morning Joe panel:

On Friday, the other classmate named in the letter told the Weekly Standard that he had never witnessed anything like what was alleged in the letter against Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh has completely denied the allegations. On Thursday, 65 women who had known him for decades signed a letter to vouch for his good character.
