Sen. Ted Cruz came out swinging on Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Thursday at the hearing for Supreme Court nominee Judge Kavanaugh. He brought up the fact that Dr. Christine Blasey Ford had just told the committee that the only people she had given her statement letter to was her attorneys, Sen. Feinstein, and her member of Congress. So how did it leak to the press?
This is actually a very big point, because whomever leaked that letter didn't give one crap for Dr. Ford's anonymity or well-being. They couldn't have cared less that her and her family would be stalked by the media — and worse — threatened by anonymous lunatics. She now has to have 24-hour security because of that leak. And this has been a huge talking point on the left, both outside the Judiciary Committee and during Thursday's hearing. Sen. Ted Cruz pointed the finger directly at the Democrats:
… she stated that she and her attorneys did not release the letter, which means the only people who could have released that letter were either the ranking member and her staff or the Democratic member of Congress because Dr. Ford told this committee those are the only people who had it.
Well that didn't go over very well with Feinstein. She quickly replied:
Yes it's that bad. And you know what Sen. Feinstein? This is all your fault. All of it!
Even if they didn't leak the letter, the way this entire thing has been handled has led to the circus that it ultimately became. We now know from Ford's testimony that she had brought this allegation forward before Judge Kavanaugh was even nominated. She brought this forward when the Trump Administration announced him as a possible candidate. So Democrats have sat on this… for months.
No one brought it up until literally the 11th hour. Why? So they could wait for more uncorroborated claims to come out. So they could ask for an FBI investigation that they know will never happen. Delay, delay, delay. That's all Dr. Ford is worth to them, and it's incredibly sad, not only to Dr. Ford, but to women throughout the entire country.
But Feinstein takes issue with being accused of this. Well you know what? If you don't like it senator, let's handle it the way you handled the entire Kavanaugh/Ford situation. The burden of proof is now on you… the accused. You are being accused of ruining a woman's life for your own political agenda. That means you are now guilty as charged until you can prove otherwise. It doesn't feel good does it?
