Judge Brett Kavanaugh broke his silence Friday regarding Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s last-minute attempt to totally derail his confirmation hearings; categorically denying any accusations contained in the legislator’s mysterious letter.
“I categorically and unequivocally deny this allegation. I did not do this back in high school or at any time,” said Kavanaugh’s statement.
Feinstein stunned her colleagues earlier this week by disclosing a letter she sent to the FBI regarding Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
“I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Feinstein said in her surprise statement.
The FBI has since declined to open an investigation into the undisclosed allegations; forwarding the letter to the White House to be included in Kavanaugh’s background check.

DIANNE’S CURVEBALL: Sen. Feinstein Sends ‘SECRET LETTER’ to FBI About Kavanaugh’s Confirmation
Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein stunned her Congressional colleagues Thursday; publicly stating she sent a mysterious letter to the FBI regarding Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing.
The liberal lawmaker’s comments strangely suggest Trump’s Supreme Court pick could be “guilty of a crime” as leading Democrats move to delay the confirmation hearings.
“I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Feinstein said in her last-minute statement. “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.”
“Throughout his confirmation process, Judge Kavanaugh has had 65 meetings with senators—including with Senator Feinstein—sat through over 30 hours of testimony, addressed over 2,000 questions in a public setting and additional questions in a confidential session,” said a White House spokesperson. “Not until the eve of his confirmation has Sen. Feinstein or anyone raised the specter of new ‘information’ about him.”

FEINSTEIN FAIL: FBI says ‘NO INVESTIGATION’ into Mysterious Kavanaugh Letter
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.
