Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA-D) provided a document to federal authorities regarding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh yesterday. After refusing to allow even members of her own party currently serving on the Senate Judiciary Committee so much as SEE the document in question, it has been revealed that the FBI does not plan to launch a criminal investigation into the matter.
Under normal circumstances, situations like this would be handled by local authorities. The FBI reported they had instead passed the material to the White House as an update to Kavanaugh’s already completed background check. This is similar to what was done when accusations were levied against former White House aide Rob Porter of spousal abuse.
Matt Zapotosky of the Washington Post tweeted – FBI official on the Dianne Feinstein referral about Kavanaugh: “Upon receipt of the information on the night of September 12, we included it as part of Judge Kavanaugh’s background file, as per the standard process.”

He continues his explanation in a second consecutive tweet stating –
“Here’s an explanation of what that means. The FBI backgrounds White House employees and nominees, & gives the White House a file on what they’ve found. But the FBI doesn’t decide whether the person gets a job/nomination. The White House does that, w/ the info in the FBI file…”

And Zapotosky continues stating – “Importantly, the FBI isn’t doing a criminal investigation based on what Feinstein told them. The broad outline of the allegation, as I understand it, seems like it’d be in state/local authorities wheelhouse, if there even is a crime, and if the statute of limitations hasn’t run.”
Just what were these accusations? The Intercept gives the clearest indication of the contents and even that? Well, it isn’t all that clear. Many speculate the accusations are purposefully vague and nebulous so Kavanaugh will now be tainted with the specter of vague and ambiguous accusation for the rest of his career. The letter simply allows people to jump to the worst conclusion possible and thus affecting him for the remainder of his career, whether he makes it through the confirmation process or not.
This is so vague that everyone who reads it will assume the worst.
Was that the point of releasing it? pic.twitter.com/vrdHpgk6oC

From The Intercept –
“The document is a letter from a California constituent and purportedly describes an incident that was relayed to someone affiliated with Stanford University, who authored the letter and sent it to Rep. Anna Eshoo, a Democrat who represents the area. Different sources provided different accounts of the contents of the letter, and some of the sources said they themselves had heard different versions, but the one consistent theme was that it describes an incident involving Kavanaugh and a woman while they were in high school. Kept hidden, the letter is beginning to take on a life of its own.”
Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (TX-R) was dismissive of the controversy surrounding the vague conjecture and accusations tweeting with clear sarcasm – “Let me get this straight: this is [a] statement about [a] secret letter regarding a secret matter and an unidentified person. Right.”

Cornyn then added in a second consecutive tweet, stating – “I will add: the FBI already performed and has reported on a background investigation on the nominee and this has been made available to all Senators on the Judiciary Committee.”
After Feinstein released her statement, Grassley spokesman George Hartmann said there is “no plan to change the committee’s consideration of Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination.”
Perhaps we can read more about it someday the alleged victim’s tell-all book?
Kimberly Strassel of the Wall Str1) On Feinstein’s referral of a letter with an accusation against Kavanaugh to the FBI: –This is impt enough to be sent to FBI, but not impt enough to have been raised before now? Can’t be both. NYT reports she got the letter this summer.eet Journal brings forth an excellent point regarding Feinstein’s letter of nebulous accusations against Kavanaugh as well, tweeting in two consecutive tweets stating –
“1) On Feinstein’s referral of a letter with an accusation against Kavanaugh to the FBI: –This is impt enough to be sent to FBI, but not impt enough to have been raised before now? Can’t be both. NYT reports she got the letter this summer.
–similarly, this is impt enough to be sent to FBI, but never shared with a single Republican charged with advice and consent?
–Feinstein statement explicitly acknowledges that the accuser did not want to take this further. So why is it with the FBI?

And continuing in a second tweet, stating – 2) –similarly, this is impt enough to be sent to FBI, but never shared with a single Republican charged with advice and consent? –Feinstein statement explicitly acknowledges that the accuser did not want to take this further. So why is it with the FBI?
It seems Feinstein’s letter of nebulous accusations levied against Kavanaugh was of such vital importance they had to be sent directly to the FBI right this instant with vague claims that a supposed high school incident that may or may not have taken place should be investigated.
All of which was in the midst of a confirmation hearing despite the fact Kavanaugh already passed a background check and apparently despite the fact that at least according to the New York Times, Feinstein had this information in her possession since July or earlier. You cannot have this both ways. The information is either vitally important, or it isn’t.

New York Times Editor: We’re Switching From Russia Collusion To ‘Trump Is Racist’
The New York Times and others have repeatedly tried to take down President Trump with libelous statements on the Russian collusion front and have failed spectacularly every single time. Now, New York Times Executive Editor Dean Baquet has accidentally admitted that for two years his far-left newspaper was “built” around spreading a hoax. Oops. But it’s never too late to shift propaganda in this political war.
He was secretly recorded saying just that and it got out. Baquet also admitted the Times’ staff is loaded with left-wingers “who cheer us when we take on Donald Trump, but they jeer at us when we take on Joe Biden.” Do tell. I’m shocked I tell you. Simply shocked.
What is actually shocking is this recording comes by way of the leftist rag, Slate. They got their mitts on the recording of a company-wide meeting Baquet held with his staffers and it is an illuminating look at how leftist media utilizes and manipulates propaganda for political effect. Why Slate would let that out is puzzling, to say the least.
Baquet has now admitted that for two long years his leftist newspaper was “built” around the Russia Collusion Hoax: “It got trickier after [inaudible] … went from being a story about whether the Trump campaign had colluded with Russia and obstruction of justice to being a more head-on story about the president’s character. We built our newsroom to cover one story, and we did it truly well.”
Truly well? Do you mean by lying and falsifying facts? They did that very well. There was not a shred of evidence that Trump colluded with Russia yet the NYT reported on it as fact for two years and in actuality, made stuff up to fit that narrative.
So the NY Times (D-NY) is back to hosting political strategy sessions on how to destroy @realDonaldTrump. Collusion failed. Obstruction came up short. Now they’ve returned to the favorite cry of every liberal who’s losing an argument: RACISM! A sad commentary on “news” in America https://t.co/en4Y8nQCOa

But the New York Times has seen the light, so to speak. The Russia collusion hoax hasn’t worked so now they are switching tactics… Trump is now a racist and everything will revolve around that lie: “Now we have to regroup, and shift resources and emphasis to take on a different story. I’d love your help with that. As Audra Burch said when I talked to her this weekend, this one is a story about what it means to be an American in 2019. It is a story that requires deep investigation into people who peddle hatred[.]”
The truth is that if Trump were actually a racist it would have come out decades ago. This is a last-ditch effort to besmirch a sitting president so a communist can take his place in the next election. It’s subversion and in my book… a form of treason.
You can still taste the salty leftist tears from being disappointed that Mueller did not take down Trump: “The day Bob Mueller walked off that witness stand, two things happened. Our readers who want Donald Trump to go away suddenly thought, “Holy shit, Bob Mueller is not going to do it.” And Donald Trump got a little emboldened politically, I think. Because, you know, for obvious reasons. And I think that the story changed. A lot of the stuff we’re talking about started to emerge like six or seven weeks ago. We’re a little tiny bit flat-footed. I mean, that’s what happens when a story looks a certain way for two years. Right?”
So, while the NYT, WaPo, and other lefty rags spewed lies and propaganda, outlets such as Breitbart, The Daily Wire, and The Daily Caller among others did real reporting and told the truth. For their efforts, a number of them have been banned on social media.
“Baquet pretty much spends the rest of the 90 minutes meeting fielding questions from individuals who are supposed to be professionals but who only want to know how they can call Trump and his supporters racists even more often.
“You see, according to the Times’ staff, everything is racist because everything really is racist.
“You probably think that whole “everything is racist” thing is me being sarcastic. Here’s a direct quote from a staffer [emphasis added]:
“Hello, I have another question about racism. I’m wondering to what extent you think that the fact of racism and white supremacy being sort of the foundation of this country should play into our reporting. Just because it feels to me like it should be a starting point, you know? Like these conversations about what is racist, what isn’t racist. I just feel like racism is in everything. It should be considered in our science reporting, in our culture reporting, in our national reporting. And so, to me, it’s less about the individual instances of racism, and sort of how we’re thinking about racism and white supremacy as the foundation of all of the systems in the country.
“Good grief. What a dispiriting and not-at-all surprising look at the ignorant whack jobs in charge of our media — and in the case of the New York Times, not just the media, but what is considered the elite of the media elite. What are they obsessed with? What do these conspiracy-loons see everywhere in 2019 America…?
“Here we sit in the most tolerant, diverse country in the world just a few years after having twice elected a black president with the middle name “Hussein,” and the people in charge of the media are breaking down into pools of self-pity because they want to scream racist at us even more than they already have.
“And again, let’s not forget that the only way they can try to pretend America is racist is by way of massive hoaxes: the Very Fine People Hoax, the Covington Hoax, the George Zimmerman Is White Hoax, the Hands Up Don’t Shoot Hoax, the Jussie Smollett Hoax, and the countless hoax hate crimes they spread over and over and over again without scrutiny.”
Good grief is an understatement. The NYT does not cover real news anymore like the rising tide of anti-Semitism in this country. They are too busy protecting terrorists and radicals, while smearing the president and conservatives, to do their actual jobs.
The New York Times openly admits that anti-Jewish hate crimes don’t interest the Times because white supremacists are not behind them: “If anti-Semitism bypasses consideration as a serious problem in New York, it is to some extent because it refuses to conform to an easy narrative with a single ideological enemy. During the past 22 months, not one person caught or identified as the aggressor in an anti-Semitic hate crime has been associated with a far right-wing group, Mark Molinari, commanding officer of the police department’s Hate Crimes Task Force, told me.”
But young white males are domestic terrorists according to these people. Geez. Not communist Antifa or Black Lives Matter or the Nation of Islam or the Black Panthers… white boys are the ticket, y’all.
Since the media is out of Russian ammo and they detest Trump, they have to have another way of smearing him and throwing the race card is their final desperate move in this political dance. Nothing else has stuck to Teflon-Don. Look for them to cry ‘racism’ non-stop for the next two years in their latest contrived hoax against the president. But you won’t hear them cover actual racism because it does not fit their political narrative. It has to be Trump, Trump, Trump! or it’s not news.
The NYT is a peddler of hate. No wonder they had to stop publishing political cartoons because the editorial staff can’t recognize blatant anti-Semitism. These aren’t journalists anymore… they are Brown Shirts. They feel they’ll get away with calling Trump a racist. After all, they got away with the Russian crap for two years.
Wow! The Deputy Editor of the Failing New York Times was just demoted. Should have been Fired! Totally biased and inaccurate reporting. The paper is a Fraud, Zero Credibility. Fake News takes another hit, but this time a big one!
