Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s last-minute curveball to derail Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings ended in total failure Friday, with the FBI saying they have no plans to open a criminal investigation into the legislator’s mysterious letter.
The left-wing lawmaker suddenly announced this week the existence of a secret letter sent to the FBI regarding Kavanaugh’s nomination; citing the anonymous message as a reason to indefinitely delay the proceedings.
Insiders say Feinstein has had possession of the mysterious material since mid-summer.
“Several officials confirmed that the letter was referred to the FBI. But the bureau does not plan to launch a criminal investigation, according to a person familiar with the matter — a probe that would normally be handled by local authorities if it were within the statute of limitations,” writes the Washington Post.
“Instead, the FBI passed the material to the White House as an update to Kavanaugh’s background check, which already has been completed,” adds the article.

APOCALYPSE NOW: Feinstein Warns ‘PEOPLE WILL DIE’ if Gov Shuts Down
Leading Democrats have officially abandoned their dire predictions of ‘Armageddon’ surrounding the GOP tax cuts, but are now warning that “people will die” should the government shut down Friday evening; saying the move will cause “necessary functions” to cease for civilians throughout the country.
Left-leaning Senator Dianne Feinstein escalated her war of words with her Congressional opponents on Thursday, breathlessly claiming the pending shutdown would likely cause death and destruction for an untold number of Americans.
“Shutting down the government is a very serious thing. People die, accidents happen. You don’t know. Necessary functions can cease,” Feinstein told CNN.
“There is no specific list you can look at and make a judgment: ‘Well everything is going to be just fine.’ You can’t make that judgment. So, I think it’s a last resort. And I’m really hopeful we don’t get to it,” she added.
Despite the liberal Senator’s concerns, Feinstein announced she will not vote for any budget deal that doesn’t include a ‘Dream Act.’
“I won’t vote for a CR without the Dream Act. We need to get the Dream Act passed, negotiate a multi-year budget agreement and fund the government through September, and we need to do so now,” Feinstein tweeted.
VICIOUS: Sen. Feinstein Says Kavanaugh Confirmation Would INCREASE Gun Violence
Sen. Dianne Feinstein took her war of words with President Trump’s pick to join the Supreme Court to the next level Tuesday; viciously claiming Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation would lead to more gun crime “victims” across the United States.
Feinstein was speaking directly to Kavanaugh when she launched her stunning attack, saying “If the Supreme Court were to adopt your reasoning I fear the number of victims would continue to grow and citizens would be rendered powerless in enacting sensible gun laws.”

The Senator’s comments come just hours after her Democratic colleagues urged an indefinite postponement for the hearings; saying they did not have sufficient time to review Kavanaugh’s court records.
