Sen. Dianne Feinstein issued yet another demand surrounding recently confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh this week; calling for an eighth FBI investigation and further congressional probes into allegations of sexual misconduct during his time in high school in the 1980s.
The liberal leader was speaking during a debate alongside Democrat opponent Kevin de Leon Wednesday when she was asked if Congress should pursue further probes into the Supreme Court Justice should liberals retake the House or Senate.
“I’d be in favor of opening an investigation into the allegations,” said Feinstein.
“Feinstein has come under fire from both Republicans and her fellow Democrats since the Kavanaugh confirmation after it was revealed that one of Kavanaugh’s accusers, Christine Blasey Ford, had reached out to the lawmaker with her allegations and asked that they remain confidential,” writes Fox News.

FEINSTEIN’S NEXT FIGHT: The Senator Slams Trump’s Plan to ‘STACK THE COURT’
Sen. Dianne Feinstein settled on her next fight against the Trump administration Thursday night; slamming the White House for planning to “stack” the 9th Circuit Court without “consulting” her office.
Feinstein unloaded on the Trump administration hours after the Senate Judiciary Committee unveiled their plan to confirm upwards of 40 judges ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.
“The decision to move forward on 9th Circuit nominees without consultation or responding to my acceptance of the White House’s offer reflects President Trump’s desire to stack the court. I expect my blue slips to be honored as I was acting in good faith,” posted the liberal leader.

Just days earlier, Feinstein issued another “demand” from the White House; this time requesting information regarding the administration’s decision to include citizenship status on the upcoming 2020 census.
BRAIN FREEZE: Feinstein ‘REGRETS’ Releasing Transcripts, Blames ‘BAD COLD’
Prominent Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein said this week that she “regrets” publishing congressional interviews with Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, saying a “bad cold” may have “slowed down her mental facilities.”
The liberal lawmaker was speaking with NBC News when she pressed to explain her decision to unilaterally release the transcripts without speaking with other members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, mainly Chairman Chuck Grassley.
“The one regret I have is that I should have spoke with Senator Grassley before. And I don’t make an excuse but I’ve had a bad cold and maybe that slowed down my mental facilities a little bit,” said Feinstein.
Sen. Grassley expressed his confusion and outright anger over Feinstein’s decision earlier this week, saying he was “confounded” as to why she would release the transcripts without speaking with other members of the Committee.
President Trump himself weighed-in on the issue on social media Wednesday, blasting “Sneaky Dianne Feinstein” for releasing Congressional testimony in an “underhanded and possibly illegal way.”
The fact that Sneaky Dianne Feinstein, who has on numerous occasions stated that collusion between Trump/Russia has not been found, would release testimony in such an underhanded and possibly illegal way, totally without authorization, is a disgrace. Must have tough Primary!
