Feinstein Seeks to Put off Kavanaugh Consideration

The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee is seeking “immediate postponement” of any further action on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court amid a new report of alleged sexual misconduct.

Sunday Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California sent a letter to GOP Chairman Chuck Grassley after The New Yorker magazine reported that Senate Democrats are investigating a second woman’s accusation of sexual misconduct by the nominee when he was a Yale freshman.

The panel has set a Thursday hearing with Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford, who earlier accused him of sexual assault when they were teens.

Feinstein also asked Grassley to have the FBI investigate both allegations.

In a story Sunday, The New Yorker says Deborah Ramirez recalled Kavanaugh exposing himself at a drunken dormitory party.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y, later tweeted that Kavanaugh’s nomination should be withdrawn.

“It’s time for a new nominee,” Gillibrand said in a tweet.


But it didn’t work, did it?
