Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said Wednesday that she would be “in favor of” reopening the investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Republicans and Democrats have slammed Feinstein since the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings for how the California Democrat handled the allegations from one of Kavanaugh’s accusers, California psychology professor Christine Blasey Ford.
Feinstein released the letter containing Ford’s allegations to the FBI at the last minute during the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, even though the California senator reportedly had the letter in her possession for months.
“I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Feinstein said in a statement.
Even after the FBI conducted an expanded investigation into what the agency determined was uncorroborated allegations, Feinstein claimed the FBI report on Kavanaugh was “an incomplete investigation” limited by the White House.
