Senator Tom Cotton, R-Ark., told “Face the Nation” the “Democrats have disgraced this process” with the “orchestrated smear campaign” against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
“For three months, the Democrats have turned the advise and consent process into a search and destroy mission. These allegations are completely unsupported by any evidence,” Senator Cotton said. “What evidence there is to a 36 year old claim, all support Judge Kavanaugh’s denial.”
“But the Democrats have disgraced this process and the United States Senate in the orchestrated smear campaign of character assassination they’ve run against Judge Kavanaugh.”
Perhaps more notably, Senator Cotton also said the office of Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, will be investigated to determine whether it leaked a confidential letter from Professor Christine Blasey Ford, the initial woman to accuse Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.
He further said lawyers recommended to Professor Ford by Democrats, who themselves are known Democratic activist lawyers, will face a Washington, D.C., bar investigation for telling her that Senate Judiciary Committee staffers would not travel to California to interview her about her sexual-assault allegation.
“They have betrayed her,” Senator Cotton said. “She has been victimized by Democrats.”
