The Democrats Are Doing A Very Bad Thing To Brett Kavanaugh

David French, National Review

We have reached a very strange and deeply disturbing point in the battle over Brett Kavanaugh. To make a long story short, news emerged today that Dianne Feinstein has reportedly possessed for months a mysterious letter that (according to the New York Times) alleges possible sexual misconduct between Judge Kavanaugh and a woman when they were both in high school. For those curious, Kavanaugh graduated from Georgetown Preparatory school in 1983. We don’t know the nature of the misconduct, the identity of the woman involved, or any other important fact about the claim. BuzzFeed claims that it contacted the woman, and she declined to comment.

The existence of the letter came to light after an Intercept report claiming that Senate Democrats had requested to review its contents, and Feinstein had refused. Here’s the key part of the Intercept’s account:

The specific content of the document, which is a letter from a California constituent, is unclear, but Feinstein’s refusal to share the letter has created tension on the committee, particularly after Feinstein largely took a back seat to her more junior colleagues last week, as they took over Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings with protests around access to documents.

The letter took a circuitous route to Feinstein, the top-ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee. It purportedly describes an incident that was relayed to someone affiliated with Stanford University, who authored the letter and sent it to Rep. Anna Eshoo, a Democrat who represents the area.

Different sources provided different accounts of the contents of the letter, and some of the sources said they themselves had heard different versions, but the one consistent theme was that it describes an incident involving Kavanaugh and a woman while they were in high school.  Kept hidden, the letter is beginning to take on a life of its own.

So, what does Feinstein do in response? Release this statement:

The statement appears deliberately crafted to create the impression that Kavanaugh violated federal law without providing any evidence at all to support the suspicion.

The Fed vs. the Middle Class

With interest rates flattened [by the Federal Reserve], government zeroes out the future. Abandoned were 80 percent of private defined-benefit pension plans. Public plans faced a similar evisceration in the future. With no acknowledgement, the U.S. government had casually dispossessed the American middle class of its retirement assets and pushed millions of Americans into acute dependency on government programs. ... Government dependency negated the American dream.
