Feinstein Continues Attempts to Further Disrupt Kavanaugh Confirmation
Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein pushes for a delay on proceedings
Sen. Dianne Feinstein is still continuing to push for Judge Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation for the Supreme Court to be delayed further.
The senior Democrat is hoping to add more disruption to the process by delaying the vote on President Trump's nominee beyond the time limit of one week, set for the FBI to conduct an investigation into the allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against Kavanaugh.
Senator Feinstein declared on Tuesday that it is too soon for the Senate to vote on Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court this week.
“Well, I believe it is. I believe it’s too soon,” Feinstein told reporters on Capitol Hill, according to Reuters.
“It’s Tuesday and we have to put all the facts together.”
According to The Daily Caller, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell proclaimed a day prior that the full Senate will be voting after a week-long FBI investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh is completed.
“The time for endless delay and destruction has come to a close,” McConnell said Monday.
“Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination is out of committee, we’re considering it here on the floor, and Mr. President, we’ll be voting this week.”

Feinstein also indicated that the FBI report should not be made public.
“It would seem to me that if people are going to be identified, this ought to be held very close,” Feinstein said.
The California senator was made aware of Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations of sexual assault in July, weeks before the Senate Judiciary Committee convened for Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing.
She notably withheld information from her Senate colleagues until right before the committee was scheduled to vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
