LETTER LEAK: Why Did Dianne Feinstein Blame Christine Blasey Ford?

Published

on

Dianne Feinstein’s attempt to blame accuser Christine Blasey Ford for the leak of her story does not hold water.

Feinstein said that Blasey Ford was responsible for leaking the “story” before the letter came out, by talking about the story with her friends. Why is Feinstein blaming the accuser?

Feinstein never alleged that Christine Blasey Ford actually leaked the LETTER itself, so her office is still the prime suspect for Republicans.

“I thought only the member of the House, and Senator Feinstein, and her lawyers had the letter,” Texas Republican senator John Cornyn said.

Feinstein eventually says “I don’t think the letter was ever leaked” and said that Blasey Ford “talked to friends about it.”

But here’s the problem for Democrats…

The official story has always been that the letter was “leaked,” which forced Blasey Ford out of hiding and into the public spotlight against her will. CNN and The Washington Post were the first two outlets to see the accuser’s name.

The Washington Examiner reported:

The contents of the letter Christine Blasey Ford wrote to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., in July detailing the night in 1982 she alleges Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her were leaked to the media Sunday evening.

Ford, a 51-year-old professor at Palo Alto University, revealed her identity to the Washington Post and described in detail the night she claims Kavanaugh drunkenly forced himself on her in a Maryland bedroom during a gathering of his Georgetown Preparatory School classmates. Kavanaugh vehemently denies the allegation and the White House is standing by the nominee.

Hours after the Post report, CNN reported Sunday evening that it did not obtain an actual copy of the letter, but rather was read its contents by a source. The news outlet read the text of the letter on air and published its contents in text form online with some names redacted.

President Trump Rules Out Deploying Troops to Restore Order, Even as Riots Show No Signs of Slowing Down

Trump has opted to not show strength in the face of this crisis.

Published

Just one day after President Donald Trump said he was willing to send military forces into states across the country to put down riots, he is reportedly backing off of the idea.

According to administration officials, Trump is happy with the result of yesterday’s enforcement measures during the riots – which included law enforcement officials being shot and police getting hit by SUVs. He will not be using the Insurrection Act to put troops on the streets to restore order anytime soon.

“The law is absolutely still on the table if things get really bad, but as of now he doesn’t think it’s going to have to go that far,” an administration official said to Axios.

“As President Trump has said, we cannot allow the voices of peaceful protesters to be drowned out by angry mobs, which is why the President will continue to take lawful, decisive action to stop the violence and restore the security of all Americans,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said.

Trump made the pivot after RINO Republicans whined about his harsh rhetoric as the country burns due to extreme left-wing riots.

“I don’t think the Pentagon’s keen on getting brought into this unless they absolutely have to. We need to restore order, but using active duty military troops in circumstances like this is a fairly rare occurrence,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said on Tuesday.

“I would prefer that these things be handled by the state and local authorities,” Sen. John Thune (R-SD) said. “You want to de-escalate, rather than escalate.”

Yesterday, Trump declared that he would show zero tolerance for any more rioting and looting in the streets:

President Donald Trump announced tonight that he will deploy military force in cities that are gripped by riots if blue-state governors do not get their acts in order and do so soon.

“My first and highest duty as president is to defend our great country and the American people,” Trump said in his speech. “I swore an oath to uphold the laws of our nation and that is exactly what I will do.”

Trump made it clear that he is an “ally of all peaceful protesters” who are protesting about injustices committed against George Floyd, who died during a police encounter with former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. However, Trump will not allow the rioters to disgrace Floyd’s memory with their looting and wanton property destruction.

Trump announced that he would deploy “thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel and law enforcement officers” in order to restore order in American cities. These forces could be deployed as soon as tonight considering how blue-state governors have done so poorly at keeping their states safe.

Earlier in the day, Trump had criticized governors throughout the country for their “weak” response to the growing violence.

President Trump has backed off at least temporarily from his boasts, showing yet again that his bark is much worse than his bite.
