Feinstein Blasts Kavanaugh Ahead of Key Senate Vote: ‘Last Week, We Saw a Man Filled With Anger and Aggression’

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) made her final argument against the confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

After listing her concerns of Kavanaugh’s judicial record, Feinstein pivoted to Kavanaugh’s performance at last week’s hearing, where she said we “saw a man filled with anger and aggression” who “raised his voice,” “interrupted senators,” and accused Democrats of “lying in wait.”

“This behavior revealed a hostility and belligerence that is unbecoming of someone seeking to be elevated to the United States Supreme Court,” Feinstein said. “His display was so shocking that more than 2,400 law professors from around the country have expressed their opposition.”

The ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee then pivoted to the “serious and credible” allegations made by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez.

Feinstein praised Ford for her “poise” and “bravery,” which she noted was “met with partisanship and hostility,” accusing Republicans of  choosing to “ignore her powerful testimony” and refusing to “gather evidence” and “do an impartial investigation” into her allegation.

“Unfortunately, the limited investigation that was conducted by the FBI failed to interview any one of the witnesses these two women identified who could support her account,” Feinstein continued. “Let me say that again. They refused to investigate, to talk with any of the 24 witnesses that could have supported their accounts.”

It’s worth noting that she omitted the allegations made by Michael Avenatti‘s client Julie Swetnick.

The California Democrat concluded that “based on all the factors,” Feinstein believed Kavanaugh has not “earned” the seat on the Supreme Court.
