FBI won’t investigate Feinstein unsourced, secret letter smearing Brett Kavanaugh

California Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein confirmed a secret letter had been submitted back in July, but has just now been brought to the public forum, allegedly attack Judge Brett Kavanaugh. The unsourced allegations of sexual misconduct back in high school will not be investigated, according to the FBI.

“I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Feinstein said in a statement. “That individual strongly requested confidentiality, declined to come forward or press the matter further, and I have honored that decision. I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities.”

Late last week, Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee privately expressed frustration that Feinstein was refusing to share the contents of the letter even with them.

Kavanaugh denies any and all of the allegations.

“Throughout his confirmation process, Judge Kavanaugh has had 65 meetings with senators — including with Sen. Feinstein — sat through over 30 hours of testimony, addressed over 2,000 questions in a public setting and additional questions in a confidential session. Not until the eve of his confirmation has Sen. Feinstein or anyone raised the specter of new ‘information’ about him,” said White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec.

Kupec said the FBI has repeatedly vetted Kavanaugh dating back to 1993 for his White House and judicial roles.

An FBI spokesperson confirmed that the bureau had received the referral on Wednesday evening and included it as part of Kavanaugh’s background file “as per the standard process.”

“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,” an FBI spokesperson told HuffPost.

Huffpo adds, “there’s no plan for further investigation as part of the background check process, which likely would have happened if the FBI had received the information earlier on.”

The existence of the letter was first reported by the Intercept.
