A top Democrat vetting President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh said Thursday she had passed new information on him to federal investigators, in a move that could stall Republican efforts to get the conservative jurist confirmed this month. Senator Dianne Feinstein, the senior Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is to vote next week on Kavanaugh, announced cryptically that she had received "information from an individual concerning the nomination." She said the individual wanted to remain anonymous and had declined to press the issue themselves. "I have, however, referred the matter to federal investigative authorities," Feinstein said, without giving further detail. The New York Times, citing officials familiar with the matter, said it involved "possible sexual misconduct" between Kavanaugh and a woman when they were both in high school.

Another "anonymous" source who doesn't want to pursue the issue, and a referral to federal agents for an anonymous allegation that outdates the statute of limitations?
Why do I have to live in this country? Why do I have to put up with this stupidity?

I like you but this entire thread is complete bullsnip.
A. You have the right complaining about anonymous sources whilst still using them.
B. Then the left uses the sources for a hit piece or a deflection.
This is all complete bull crap bro.
She said the individual wanted to remain anonymous and had declined to press the issue themselves.

This is absolutely hilarious.
Dianne Feinstein might have info from an anonymous source who wants to remain anonymous that B.K. may have done something of a sexual nature when he was in high school with a girl.
Oh my! Feinstein has reported this to federal authorities! High school? Did the Dems really go there? What an insult to the intelligence and common sense of The American People. Talk about a 'hail mary'!
so i guess FBI is on it for what that is worth after all this time, how would one prove a rape happened so far long ago? no dna id gather,rape kit cant be done. so unless it would be "confessed too" how could you achieve a conviction? i mean in fairness they got Cosby but i haven't really followed that other then it seems hes pretty guilty according to a jury but i didnt follow what evidence was cited so honestly not sure.
Either there’s a very dark secret in Kavanaugh’s closet or the left is unrolling one of the dirtiest dirty tricks to damage a nominee in recent history. Democrats had better have the goods here or they’re guilty of an outrageous smear. The mystery started with a story at the Intercept alleging that Dem Rep. Anna Eshoo had received some sort of correspondence about Kavanaugh and passed it along to Feinstein, and that it had attracted interest among other Dems on the Judiciary Committee. Feinstein refused to share it, though. What could be so incendiary that she wouldn’t disclose the contents even as liberals ran to the media to chatter about it? The Intercept … doesn’t know. But there are rumors. So very many rumors. Well then. High school plus #MeToo plus a mysterious woman plus Feinstein treating the letter very sensitively, to the point where she wouldn’t even show it to Democratic colleagues? That sounds a little … rape-y, doesn’t it? BuzzFeed, whom you’ll remember from the time they published the Steele dossier, caught wind of the mysterious letter yesterday and began sniffing around to see what they could find out. What does it say? Does it even exist? Two hours ago came word from Feinstein: Yes, it exists, and although she won’t reveal what it alleges, she’s decided to refer it to the FBI. “This matter has been referred to the FBI for investigation,” Sen. Dick Durbin told BuzzFeed News when asked about the letter on Thursday. In a statement later Thursday, Feinstein confirmed that she had referred the letter to “federal investigative authorities.” “I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Feinstein said. “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.” BuzzFeed apparently knows the name of the woman mentioned in the letter and contacted her for comment — but she declined. If this is all part of a devious plan to produce an Anita Hill at the eleventh hour to try to give Kavanaugh the Clarence Thomas treatment, it’s strange that the woman would refuse to come forward. Unless, of course, she suddenly “changes her mind” and emerges a few days before the confirmation vote to formally accuse Kavanaugh of something.
